Lyrics

You and I we collide
Like the stars on the summer night
We can shine for ever

And you and I, we're alive
What we feel is what is right
We can run like never

If love was a crime, then we would be criminals
Locked up for life, but I'll do the time
If love was a crime, then we would work miracles
High above the ground
They will never break us down

Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down

Never mind
Wrong or right
Our love ain't got no pride
So we change for better

Unafraid
Never fade
When it's dark we illuminate
Can we rise together

If love was a crime, then we would be criminals
Locked up for life, but I'll do the time
If love was a crime, then we would work miracles
High above the ground
They will never break us down

Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down

Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
They will never break us down

Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Daĭ mi lyubovta
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
They will never break us down


Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
Oh, daĭ mi lyubovta
Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
They will never break us down

You and I we collide
Like the stars on the summer night
We can shine for ever

And you and I, we're alive
What we feel is what is right
We can run like never

If love was a crime, then we would be criminals
Locked up for life, but I'll do the time
If love was a crime, then we would work miracles
High above the ground
They will never break us down

Oh, give me the love
Give me the love
Oh, give me the love
They will never break us down
Oh, give me the love
Give me the love
Oh, give me the love
They will never break us down

Never mind
Wrong or right
Our love ain't got no pride
So we change for better

Unafraid
Never fade
When it's dark we illuminate
Can we rise together

If love was a crime, then we would be criminals
Locked up for life, but I'll do the time
If love was a crime, then we would work miracles
High above the ground
They will never break us down

Oh, give me love
Give me love
Oh, give me love
They will never break us down
Oh, give me love
Give me love
Oh, give me love
They will never break us down

Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
They will never break us down

Oh, give me love
Give me love
Oh, give me love
They will never break us down
Oh, give me love
Give me love
Oh, give me love
They will never break us down


Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
Oh, give me love
Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
They will never break us down
