It was later used again for the bridge of "Iambic Pentameter", from the EP SZNZ: Winter.

Lyrics

2004 demo

...
That's the way it's supposed to be
Hanging out, having fun
So much work to be done
Out on your own
We can have a lot of fun

You and me together
Holding on for life
You and me together
No more pain and strife
You and me together
You and me forever
You and me together
Holding on for life

On my way to the top
No one knows when to stop
Hanging out, having fun
So much work to be done
Out on your own
We can have a lot of fun

You and me together
Holding on for life
You and me together
No more pain and strife
You and me together
You and me forever
You and me together
Holding on for life

And all the times
You wake up in your room
...
...

You and me together
Holding on for life
You and me together
No more pain and strife
You and me together
You and me forever
You and me together
Holding on for life

You and Me Together (2013 version)

It's time I call you up
I hope to learn some more
And I am watching you until
You slam the bedroom door

You turn around and notice me
And then you go your way
We start process up again
Every single day

You and me together
Holding on for life
You and me together
No more pain and strife
You and me together
Faithfully forever
You and me together
Holding on for life

I need a rocket ship
'Cause I wanna see my fate
But then you tie me down
And my love turns into hate

That's the way the world turns
It leaves us all behind
And then you feel the icy clutch
Of the hands of time
