Charlie Mcdonnell – Chemical Love lyrics

From the moment that I saw you
Yeah it had to be love
Girl I can't help but adore you
Knew you'd fit me like a glove
What a life we have in store to
Spend together and stuff
You're a beauty, what a cutie
It's undoubtedly love
It's undoubtedly love

My legs are going weak
And my heart's beating fast
I'm knowing I should speak to her
But I'm unsure what to ask
I feel like my technique
Might not be up to the task
But she's the love that I do seek
And hey, she's got a nice ass

And when she looks at me I hope she'll feel the same
Due to the hormone that's released inside her brain

Dopamine, dopamine

It's a catecholamine neurotransmitter
Which means it sends a message in your brain
To tell you that you think that girl you're looking at is fitter
To make offspring with than any other dame
And when she looks at me, yes I can feel it beating
I can tell from the shortness of my breath
That my body has reacted to our wandering eyes meeting
And the high I'm on's comparable to Meth

But methamphetamine's a drug of which I'm clean
Though I can't say the same of dopamine

Dopamine, dopamine

But dopamine's just one half of the tale
The chemical that get's you in the mood
There's another guy that you'll need to prevail
If you want to see a partner in the nude

Dopamine is useless without norepinephrine
Focusing your efforts on one girl
Telling you that she's the one who's making your head spin
If this were an oyster then she'd be the pearl

And so I lock eyes with this girl
Ready for our love to unfurl
I just want to curl up to her
But she's looking at me like she's ready to hurl

I guess this lady doesn't feel the same
I thought there was a spark, but it didn't light the flame
But I still have the urge to ask her name
But that's not me, that's the hormone in my brain

Dopamine, dopamine, dopamine, dopamine
And don't forget, norepinephrine, norepinephrine
Dopamine's best friend, norepinephrine, norepinephrine norepinephrine!

From the moment that I saw her
Yeah I knew it was love
Couldn't help but adore her
Thought she'd fit me like a glove
But it turned out that my thoughts were
Just impulses, not enough
To get this beauty's pretty booty
It's just chemical love
It's just chemical love
