The Scientist Lyrics

[Verse 1: Chris Martin]
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
And tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions
No, let's go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart

[Chorus: Chris Martin]
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

[Verse 2: Chris Martin]
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
And 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

[Chorus: Chris Martin]
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

[Outro: Chris Martin]
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh
