Album: Notes On A Conditional Form (2020)
Charted: 35

Songfacts®:

  • The most tender, sincere single The 1975 have released in several years, "Me & You Together" finds Matty Healy singing of being young and in love. He dreams of a life of domestic bliss with her.

    I had a dream where we had kids
    You would cook, I'd do the nappies


    However, the girl doesn't feel the same way; she feels awkward when Matty hesitantly asks her out on a date, as she just considers him a friend.

    "Can I take you for a drink?"
    She said, "Oh God, I'll have to think
    Because we're mates, it doesn't feel right
  • The dreamy song's lyrics have a cinematic feel because Matty Healy originally wrote the track for a movie. He detailed what inspired the lyrics. "It's kind of me as a teenager; it's about idealism in relationships and trying to capture what I thought about Amy Watson or Chelsea Pollard."
