Lyrics
Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry,
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,
Oh, let's go back to the start.
Running in circles, coming up tails,
Heads are a science apart.

Nobody said it was easy,
And 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.

I was just guessing at numbers and figures,
Pulling your puzzles apart.
Questions of science, science and progress,
Don't speak as loud as my heart.

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me,
Oh when I rush to the start.
Running in circles, chasing tails,
Come back as we are.

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 so hard.

I'm going back to the start.

Oh, ooooo,
Ah, ooooo,
Oh, ooooo,
Oh, ooooo
