  • Mathematics is a difficult thing
    I never understood what was the missing link
    And by the time I calculated the correct solution
    The question had escaped me and so did the conclusion

    So tell me everything must always equal two
    Or nothing else is true
    And I'll believe you 'cause your X is equal to my why
    But equations pass me by

    So will you take just a little of my mind and subtract it from my soul
    Add a fraction of your half and you'll see it makes me whole
    Multiply it by the times that we've never been apart
    You'll see nothing can divide just a heart plus a heart

    A little of my mind, take it from my soul
    A fraction of your half, see it makes me whole
    And multiply the times, never be apart
    'Cause nothing can divide a heart plus a heart

    Don't know my Fibonacci or Pythagoras
    But the only formula I know will work for us is that
    When we're together in the sum of our parts
    It's far greater than what we added up to at the start

    So tell me everything must always equal two
    Or nothing else is true
    And I'll believe you 'cause your X is equal to my why
    But equations pass me by

    So will you take just a little of my mind and subtract it from my soul
    Add a fraction of your half and you'll see it makes me whole
    Multiply it by the times that we've never been apart
    You'll see nothing can divide just a heart plus a heart

    A little of my mind, take it from my soul
    A fraction of your half, see it makes me whole
    And multiply the times, never be apart
    'Cause nothing can divide a heart plus a heart
    A heart plus a heart

    Take just a little of my mind and subtract it from my soul
    Add a fraction of your half and you'll see it makes me whole
    Multiply it by the times that we've never been apart
    You'll see nothing can divide just a heart plus a heart

    A little of my mind, take it from my soul
    A fraction of your half, see it makes me whole
    And multiply the times, never be apart
    'Cause nothing can divide a heart plus a heart
