This song is inspired by the book The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.


We were great star-crossed lovers
I'd tell you about it if I could

But I won't tell you our story
It will die with us, as it should

If I tried, I'd disappear
Into a puddle of tears
So I will talk about math instead, instead


Oh I'm not a mathematician - wha oh wha oh - but I do know
That there are infinite numbers between one and zero

And I am so very grateful - oh that okay - is our always
Cause you gave me a forever within the numbered days


You were a welcome addition
So I'm thankful that 1+1 is 2.

Cause you're one in a million
And I don't wanna see a world without you

There are days when I resent
The small size of our set
Because I want more numbers than we're likely to get, to get


There's no place I'd rather be
Than in our little infinity
But the world is not a wish granting factory
