This song is by Everything but the Girl and appears on the album Worldwide (1991).

You're here, but what if you weren't
What would happen to me?
That candle unburnt it's history
One thing I guess this place would be a mess
For my standards at best are undemanding
2... 3... 4...
That needs your understanding

Still here, but what if we weren't
Where do you think I would be (Where would I be?)
Love I have learned depends on geography
Fortune found us when all around us
Half the couples we knew were dispanding
2... 3... 4...
That takes some understanding

And do you know even if when we disagree
Freedom holds out a hand to me
I know I would never want to be without your company
And I mean that totally...

Ooh... oh...
Ooh... oh...
Oh... yeah...

One thing is clear
After all these years
We have reached an understanding (2x)
2... 3... 4...

We have reached an understanding (6x)
Haven't we darling?
We have reached an understand

Oh... yeah... understand
That's what we have...
