Sucker love is heaven sent.
You pucker up, our passion's spent.
My hearts a tart, your body's rent.
My body's broken, yours is bent.

Carve your name into my arm.
Instead of stressed, I lie here charmed.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.

Sucker love, a box I choose.
No other box I choose to use.
Another love I would abuse,
No circumstances could excuse.

In the shape of things to come.
Too much poison come undone.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Sucker love is known to swing.
Prone to cling and waste these things.
Pucker up for heavens sake.
There's never been so much at stake.

I serve my head up on a plate.
It's only comfort, calling late.
Cuz there's nothing else to do,
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Like the naked leads the blind.
I know I'm selfish, I'm unkind.
Sucker love I always find,
Someone to bruise and leave behind.

All alone in space and time.
There's nothing here but what here's mine.
Something borrowed, something blue.
Every me and every you.
Every me and every you,
Every Me...he

Every me and every you,
Every Me...he [x4]

Song facts

"Every You Every Me" is a single by alternative rock band Placebo. Appearing on their second album, it reached number 11 in the UK Singles Chart. The lyrics were written by frontman Brian Molko and Paul Campion, lead singer of the band AC Acoustics.

The single was featured on the Cruel Intentions soundtrack. There are two versions of the video, both filmed live at London's Brixton Academy; one includes clips from the movie Cruel Intentions, the other does not. There are two slightly different recordings of the song, the single version which is also on the album Once More with Feeling and the album version on Without You I'm Nothing.

The song was also used in the "Sorry" skate video (from the company Flip Skateboards) during Mark Appleyard's video part. The song is also featured in the PlayStation video game F1 2000. It is also featured in mobile rhythm game Guitar Rock Tour 2.

This song was voted from a poll of 500,000 votes to be ranked #83 on the list of the Hottest 100 of All Time in July 2009, conducted by Australian radio station Triple J.

The song has been a staple of the band's setlist since 1998. It has undergone several changes throughout the band's history, with versions since 2003 containing a new intro riff. Notably during the winter 2006 leg of the Meds tour, it was significantly extended to approximately 6 minutes in length during performances.
