we've got this kind of chemistry / you see
the kind of chemistry where you're my O2 / i need you to breathe
but if it was that simple / i'd follow you anywhere
yet here i stand / yet here i stand.

it's not like we're into the same things / i don't think i've known you for more than a day
the thing is my pulse leaps my heart beats / i need you to breathe
but i don't think you're too keen / on a girl only just turned seventeen.

see you're this science whiz / off to the university
and you don't have no need for me / do you?
(we've got this kind of chemistry / you see)
(we've got this kind of chemistry / you see).

oh dear / i'm losing myself here
caught in the streetlights / you said you were musical right?
well maybe i'll go to the university / i'll write you a song
if i have the bravery / and sing it to you
the next time i see you / i'll sing it to you.

see you're this science whiz / off to the university
yet here i stand / yet here i stand
and you have no need for me / do you?
(we've got this kind of chemistry / you see)
(we've got this kind of chemistry / you see).

the thing is my pulse leaps my heart beats / i need you to breathe
but i don't think you're too keen / on a girl only just turned seventeen.
