This Is Us

Album: Bettie James (2020)
  • I used to push my luck, I used to fill my cup
    Yeah, I used to be known for the dumb things
    I used to chase the sun, I used to kiss and run
    All-nighters turned into nothings and I

    I'm lucky every other lover got away
    I'm lucky that my heart was always hard to break
    I'm lucky when you came along I had a chance to take

    'Cause it was just you and that was just me
    And that was just the way that it used to be
    And we were just kids back then tryna figure out what it was
    No, it wasn't that bad but could've been better
    If only back then we'd have been together
    But it was just you and that was just me
    Before we found love
    Now this is us

    All I really know is love ain't simple (oh yeah, oh yeah)
    It finds you all alone when you're unassembled
    Yeah, when you're in pieces and you feel like you're drowning
    You don't wanna give nobody the power
    That's when it gets in the cut
    And that's when it stitches you up

    'Cause it was just you and that was just me
    And that was just the way that it used to be
    And we were just kids back then tryna figure out what it was
    No, it wasn't that bad but could've been better
    If only back then we'd have been together
    But it was just you and that was just me
    Before we found love
    Now this is us

    This is us, this is us, this is us, yeah
    This is trust, this is trust, this is trust, yeah
    This is love, this is love, this is love, yeah (this is love, yeah)

    I'm lucky every other lover got away
    I'm lucky that my heart was always hard to break
    I'm lucky when you came along I had a chance to take

    'Cause it was just you and that was just me
    And that was just the way that it used to be
    And we were just kids back then tryna figure out what it was
    (Oh, it wasn't that bad)
    No, it wasn't that bad but could've been better
    If only back then we'd have been together
    But it was just you and that was just me
    Before we found love
    Now this is us

    This is us, this is us, this is us, yeah
    This is trust, this is trust, this is trust, yeah
    This is love, this is love
    This is love, yeah (yeah, yeah, this is love, yeah baby)

    This is us, this is us, this is us, yeah (yeah baby)
    This is trust, this is trust, this is trust, yeah (oh, baby)
    This is love, this is love, this is love, yeah Writer/s: Emile Dernst, Isley Juber, Jordan Schmidt, Noah Cyrus, Tyler Hubbard
