All these words you speak to me
Are from a foreign land
You're telling me that birds don't fly
How can it be that you love her?

You don't have to raise your voice
I still don't understand
There's me and you, and you and me
So how can it be that you love her?

It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy, now it's all gone
She is the golden one

So what are you saying?
We've got to dismantle it all
Rip off the paper, smash up the walls
How can it be that you love her?

Take all of the things
We so carefully made
Take all of the lies that you've betrayed
How can it be that you love her?

It was alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy, now it's all gone
She is the golden one

It wad alchemy
To sing to me your freedom song
To make love where there was none
Alchemy, now it's all gone
She is the golden one...

    The love with the broken hearted was an illusion, it was fake
    the true love is with the other woman
    this is a breakup song

    I'm way off but i thought it was the singer was led on by someone, but in the end the person that led them on was in love with someone else.. "the golden one" not the singer..

    Its how above and beyond describe love after it happen... When people are in love they have "chemistry", when they still love each other but aren't together, what happen its alchemy

    For me this song represents the ending of a relationship, that was just alchemy. But the girl still cant believe that it was just alchemy.

    I know the dj who made the song he says he wrote this song because of "torture". He said thats the meaning of the word "alchemy"
