this time it’s us lyrics – jude cole

i sat on the roof as the night came down
looking out over this pitiful town
and thought of you out there
back in the race
looking for someone to take my place
that’s when it hit me
that’s when the walls came down
you see, i never thought it could happen to us
now we’re going ’round
breaking down each other’s hearts
so go on and blame me for whatever you must
but we’ve become just like the ones
we laughed about
this time, well this time it’s us
up in a watchtower with the streetlights below
in a town full of places that we used to go
and a river of people walking two by two
everything i see now reminds me of you
that’s when it hit me
that’s when it all came true
’cause i never thought it could happen to us
now we’re going ’round
breaking down each other’s hearts
so go on and blame me for whatever you must
but we’ve become just like the ones
we were laughing about
this time, this time it’s us, oh it’s us
[ solo ]
i never thought it could happen to us
now we’re going ’round
breaking down each other’s hearts
so go on and blame me for whatever you must
but we’ve become just like the ones
we were laughing about
this time, this time it’s us
this time it’s us, oh
this time it’s us
