"Entre Nous" ("Between Us" in French) is the fourth track on the 1980 album Permanent Waves by progressive rock band Rush. It was also released as a single. The only live performances of the song to date occurred during the 2007 leg of the tour to promote Snakes & Arrows, an album released on May 1 of that year. It was then featured on the live album released on April 15, 2008.

"Entre Nous"

We are secrets to each other

Each one's life a novel

No one else has read

Even joined in bonds of love

We're linked to one another

By such slender threads

We are planets to each other

Drifting in our orbits

To a brief eclipse

Each of us a world apart

Alone and yet together

Like two passing ships


Just between us

I think it's time for us to recognize

The differences we sometimes fear to show

Just between us

I think it's time for us to realize

The spaces in between

Leave room for you and I to grow

We are strangers to each other

Full of sliding panels

An illusion show

Acting well rehearsed routines

Or playing from the heart?

It's hard for one to know


We are islands to each other

Building hopeful bridges

On a troubled sea

Some are burned or swept away

Some we would not choose

But we're not always free
