This is a love song for physics and chem nerds.  Thank you, Sapient! :D

I wrote down all the lyrics and figured all the chords to my liking, but if I got anything wrong, 
just comment below.  Any words you'd need another person to sing are in ()'s.  I couldn't figure 
out the solo.

Practice the lyric rhythm a lot, then sing this to your girl.  I believe in you.

[Tune all strings down a half step]

(?) = a D-shaped chord on fret 4 with pinky hammer(h)-on-pull(p)-offs
(X) = a D-shaped chord only using the top two strings and sliding it up the neck
(B7)= a weird bar.  You can use any B7 you want for the other B7's, but if you want 
      to do the hammer-on-pull-offs, you gotta use the one tabbed below.
  * = There's a D-to-D7 chord transition thing actually happens as a triplet before 
      the first beat in the last measure.  The paino plays it.
  _ = I tried to label where the down-beats are.
