THE SCIENCE OF LOVE

I caught myself staring up at the stars again

Hoping that they had the answers for me

Listening to love songs that I don’t believe in

And I watching reruns of old romance stories

 

I thought we could span us out to forever

I tried to understand him, thought I had a hope

But instead of putting us together

I ended up breaking us both

 

He tried to make me understand

Release me from the chain’s weight

He held summer’s light in his hands

Tried to teach me the laws of science and faith

 

He told me there was more to the universe

Than what meets the eye

Love’s a power against hate’s curse

There’s more to life than just “live and die”

 

I tried to open up my mind

To understand just how he thought

But I didn’t see it even after centuries of time

And his love was the cost

 

I know I shouldn’t have spoken out against his beliefs

And now I’m stuck not knowing what to do

What used to be light is now dimmed with grief

And it doesn’t make sense without you

 

So then I fell into an unending night

Blood flowing straight out of opened scars

Trying my best to set things right

But all I did was fall too far

 

Entire weeks spent awake

Struggling to understand his point of view

Pushing to the point where I know I’ll break

Because I think was beginning to understand love around you
