Chemistry
 

Im confused
Ive got you in my heart
You could undo
My peace of mind, youre inclined to do
Strange things to me
But I like it most of the time

Id be a fool
To build a fire from a spark
What is it pulls
Me into you? Ive been tied to you
From the start
But I like it most of the time

But if I must choose
Between mystery and a friend
Mystery would lose
You can count on a lover whos your friend
While the others just pretend
But I like it most of the time.
 

 
[Misericord, Tall Poppy Records 1991]
