"You And I" was written for the scene where Edward and Vivian go to the Opera, and then back to Edward's hotel .

Director Jerry Mitchell asked us to write a love song - without using the word "love" (OK ... maybe we used the word "love" once in the lyric).

I wrote the song with Bryan, but I'm also a huge fan! I think he performs beautifully on this recording. Every vocal phrase, every drum fill, just as it should be.

Lyrics: Darlin' you look beautiful tonight
I can't remember ever seein' anything so right
In the magic of the moment, yeah
There's no place I'd rather be

I see the wonder of the world through your eyes
To have you here beside me
Makes me realize
Everything is different, yeah
Everything has changed inside of me

You and I
We've got somethin' goin' on
You and I
How could this be wrong?
Who'd believe that we could catch the wind before it's gone?
Only you and I

I love the way you feel when you're near
If I could be anywhere I'd wanna be right here
Let's never let it end
I could spend forever in your arms

You and I
Much to my surprise
You and I
It was right before my eyes

I would give almost anything
The stars, the moon, the sky
All for you and I

I wasn't waiting for a miracle
I just wanted somewhere to belong
It's amazing what can happen when you're making other plans
But how was I to know you were right there all along?

Darlin' you look beautiful tonight
I can't remember ever seein' anything so right
Like a vision in the darkness
A sight for lonely eyes to see

You and I
I always wanna feel this way
You and I
On any other day
I might have missed the moment
Now I just wanna stay

Together, you and I
Forever, you and I
