Box 93, Toronto P Toronto, ON, M5S2S6 Written and created by Mitch Moffit and Greg Brown Lyrics: I'll be the spark, if you'll be the flame Start a reaction that can't be contained Balance your pH by sharing my base I'll be your star, if you'll be my space 'Cause there is no distance that I wouldn't go Through spacetime and wormholes my matter would flow To the edge of the universe I'll be your G, if you will be C Or I can be A, if you will be T If there's a mutation I'll fix every base Working as your zinc finger nuclease Just like an atom, don't rip us apart Unless you want a big BOOM in my heart We can take it fast or really slow But we can't know with certainty where we'll go If at first we don't succeed, we'll try two more times So our failure's a statistically significant try Like an equation, it all works out If we balance the sides there's no need to doubt CHORUS: This is your science love song A place to start our chemical bond A research endeavour We can write the conclusion together Just like the movies I'd steal your heart But then you'd die...so I won't do that If we broke up I'd be no more I'd give up H2O for H2SO4 Take away gravity, I'd still fall for you Share my last electron in a covalent bond for two 'Cause you're like that angle, A-cute and you're smart Your labcoat and goggles go straight to my heart Except that's a lie, cause the heart doesn't feel When it comes to love the brain seals the deal REPEAT CHORUS 'Cause you matter to me
