"We Can't Live Together" lyrics - JOE JACKSON

"We Can't Live Together"

In distant lands
There's no such luxury
You'd give your hand
In pre-arranged matrimony
You'd wear the veil
I'd sit in some cafe somewhere
Instead of this running around
And this right to be free
So pleased with ourselves but there's one thing I've found
About you and me
We can't live together
But we can't stay apart

In all my dreams
I've wanted someone like you
With no extremes
We'd both do what we have to do
But it's too easy, and then it's too hard
And passion gives us away
We know when to play the right cards
But we never know what to say
And we can't live together
But we can't stay apart

Why can't you be just more like me
Or me like you
And why can't one and one
Just add up to two

But we can't live together
And we can't stay apart
