  • If I told you things I did before
    Told you how I used to be
    Would you go along with someone like me?
    If you knew my story word for word
    Had all of my history
    Would you go along with someone like me?

    I did before and had my share
    It didn't lead nowhere
    I would go along with someone like you
    It doesn't matter what you did
    Who you were hanging with
    We could stick around and see this night through

    And we don't care about the young folks
    Talkin' 'bout the young style
    And we don't care about the old folks
    Talkin' 'bout the old style too
    And we don't care about their own faults
    Talkin' 'bout our own style
    All we care 'bout is talking
    Talking only me and you

    Usually when things has gone this far
    People tend to disappear
    No one will surprise me unless you do

    I can tell there's something goin' on
    Hours seems to disappear
    Everyone is leaving, I'm still with you

    It doesn't matter what we do
    Where we are going to
    We can stick around and see this night through

    And we don't care about the young folks
    Talkin' 'bout the young style
    And we don't care about the old folks
    Talkin' 'bout the old style too
    And we don't care about their own faults
    Talkin' 'bout our own style
    All we care 'bout is talking
    Talking only me and you

    And we don't care about the young folks
    Talkin' 'bout the young style
    And we don't care about the old folks
    Talkin' 'bout the old style too
    And we don't care about their own faults
    Talkin' 'bout our own style
    All we care 'bout is talking
    Talking only me and you

    Talking only me and you

    Talking only me and you
    Talking only me and you Writer/s: Bjorn Yttling, John Eriksson, Peter Moren
