I was on my way, I swear
But I took a wrong turn, there
For I zigged when I should have zagged
It's a somber turn out tonight

Chemistry class
Try to do our part
Something happened in the dark
We bought raincoats and pretty charms

And they did remember this time
To keep it inside
Now we keep the water still
On the broken window sill
For if not we have to move

It is green outside
Where it seems magical
And if nothing works
We'll do nothing
I hope we're on time

And we shouldn't look at the sky
The perilous light
We were not allowed outside
And no one could tell us why

I got worried
With shaky hands
So we said the words that we kept
For worrying times

I was on my way, I swear
But I lost my way somewhere
And the trees were glistening

From the silver trickling water
When the rain returns

We had our suspicions
Thinking what my heart confirmed

It is sweet outside
Where it seems magical
And if nothing works
We'll do nothing

Save yourself tonight
Asleep in the dark
I hope we're on time
