“Me & You Together Song” by The 1975
“Me & You Together Song” is based on a lifelong narrator the singer has had on a certain lady. As we can see from the chorus and second verse, he has been “in love” with her since they were “kids”.
However, in all honesty it seems the chances of them actually getting together are quite slim. For instance, it seems as if she has grown up thinking that he is gay. And by the time they have reached adulthood, i.e. the present, she can’t even imagine herself dating him ‘because they’re mates’. Or perhaps a concise way of summarizing this situation is that he’s stuck in the friend zone with a lady who he has increasingly developed feelings for “in stages his whole life”. But considering that she isn’t giving him any kind of play, at least for now the expression of his feelings are relegated to this song centered on a fantasy of the two of them being “together”.
