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.
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.

There is no deep meaning to this song, it means what it means it is his conversation which pivots on her point in the chorus, if we are nothing but chemicals then love or how we see love is nothing but an a illusion then faith is used in the line "its the way we feel, yer this is real" no evidence to say it is real, but some how it must be real because love is everything.

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.
