Two of the biggest names in country music came together back in 2013 to create pure country magic in the form of Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert‘s “We Were Us.” While their award-winning duet may sound like an upbeat story of love, the lyrics possess a heartbreaking tale of love lost.
The video for “We Were Us” features Urban and Lambert performing in a dive bar, quickly drawing a sizable crowd as the song progresses. The friends kicked off their duet on separate microphones before coming together at the chorus for a set of flirty harmonies, illuminating the difficult truth that even while you may love someone, the relationship can still fall apart.
“When a road was a road/ I could roll on through without wishin’ that empty seat was you,” they sing with their eyes locked. “Money was gas, dreams were dust/ Love was fast and we were us.”
“We Were Us” tells the story of two former lovers reminiscing about their lost love, desperately wishing they could go back to the time in their lives. In addition to charting at No.1, the song went on to win them a CMA Award for “Musical Event of the Year.”
