Comments:
The version of this song that appears on the "Shine A Light" album is a keyboard-laden duet with Jennifer Lopez, however it was originally written and recorded as a slow, rock-soul track.

I beleive Bryan has plans to eventually release the rock-soul version. Personally, I much prefer it.
Lyrics: They said we wouldn't make it
They said it couldn't last
But look who's talkin' now
We had the last laugh

Ya, we’ve seen some fire
And we’ve felt some pain
We’ve been thru the toughest times
And we'd do it all again

It’s you and me against the world

That's how strong our love is
That's how strong our love is
I wanna tell everybody it's true - yes I do

That's how strong our love is
That's how strong our love is
I wanna tell everybody about you - yes I do

Nobody believed
That we'd last this long
Nobody believed it
But we proved them wrong

And all the trouble and strife
That life sometimes brings
If we can get through this
We can get through anything

It's you and me against the world

That's how strong our love is
That's how strong our love is
I wanna tell everybody its true - yes I do

That's how strong our love is
There's nothing i wouldn't give
To spend my life with you
Yes it's true

You could be a million miles away
But I know it's gonna be just fine
I know it's gonna be just fine

I think about you night and day
There's nothin’ that could change my mind
No - nothin’s gonna change my mind

That's how strong our love is
That's how strong our love is ...
