Tried to break love to a science
In an act of pure defiance
I broke her heart.
As I pulled apart her theories
As I watched her growing weary
I pulled her apart
Having heavy conversations
About the furthest constellations of our souls. ooh
And we're just trying to find some meaning
In the things that we believe in
But we got some ways to go.
Of all of the things that she's ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead.

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeah this is real.
Woohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeah this is real.

I tried pushing evolution
As the obvious conclusion of the start.
But it was for my own amusement
Saying love was an illusion of a hopeless heart.
Of all of the things that she's ever said
She goes and says something that knocks me dead.

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeah this is real.
Woohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeah this is real.

Of all of the things that she's ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead

You won't find faith or hope down a telescope
You won't find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can't explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeh this is real
Ooohhhh
It's the way we feel, yeh this is real

    Not only is this a beautiful song but it is an important life lesson "You wont find faith or hope down a telescope, you wont find heart or soul in the stars, you cant break everything down to chemicals" its true! Not everything is a science you can't judge a person how sciencist tell you, you judge people on their soul and personality and unfortunly this person made the wrong choice.

    I just love script and every their song. Every song of the script gives us some special meaning. And yes have faith in what you beleive in. This song really helped during my bad times. Oh I don't even have words to say. The Script is the most awesome band in the while wide world. I love you. I have listened to each and every song of their and am eagerly waiting for their next album #4.

    The song says don't look below or above (i think 'microscope' works better than 'telescope', don't you?) for meaning about something like love or human emotion. You're much better off just falling in love.
    Incidentally, I reckon you possibly could 'explain' love if you had enough knowledge about the chemical processes that go on in brain and body. However, to model it would require an incredibly powerful computer which could handle emergent systems. And any society that had an advanced-enough computer to handle that, as well as the requisite levels of knowledge for the right inputs, would be too busy curing cancer and controlling the weather and landing on mars to worry about a crazy little thing called love.

    This song isn't about religion at all so both sides of the argument are irrelevant here. This song is about love between two people. It is about the mystery that defies understanding and explanation when two people manage to find true love in a world of such varying and drastic beliefs and ideals it will probably destroy itself. The science-faith thing is a metaphor -chris leyrer on YouTube.
    I agree with this person cause its exactly wht the song means and they put it perfectly so all credit goes to this YouTube user.

    The song sums it all up. The man is trying to find an excuse for the feelings hes having and since hes a logic person he says that science is the reason for everything. She finally tells him that no matter what he says no scientist can describe the love she has for him or vice versa. Shes telling him that there are some things that can't be explained and sometimes its better that way.
