The Scientist Lyrics

Come up to meet you
Tell you I'm sorry
You don't know how lovely you are
I had to find you
Tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart

Tell me your secrets
And ask me your questions
Oh let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start

I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling your puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart

Tell me you love me
Come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start
Running in circles, chasing our tails
Coming back as we are

Nobody said it was easy
Oh it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard
I'm going back to the start

(Oh oh oh oh oh oh)
(Ah oh oh oh oh oh oh)

2 Thoughts & Meanings

A song about the first moments, the beginning of a fairytail; the first excitement, that divine substance you've come to attribute to the other party; the fist touch of the fingers, the first whispers. Science will have to take its toll under the wings of love.

I remember when this song first came out, I completely fell in love with it. I have always been fascinated with the idea of time travelling. The simple question of: what if? what if things were different? what if there was a way to come back and look for the people that we love and have lost? and also because it tackles a debate that has always excited.. knowledge vs. love, faith vs. science, but the truth is that we'll always care more about people than about things, so there is no discussion really to be made
