Those who forget history will often repeat it


People say we don't mix very well
I'm an alkali metal and you're moisture in the air
They say we don't mix very well
I'm potassium and you're H2O
Put us together and the air will explode
A purple haze is what they'll look for
They're the oil that keeps us apart
They have the audacity to chain soul-
mate hearts

People say it's a horror story
They're wrong, it's a love story
Let them say what they want to say
Let them think what they want to think
Their uninformed opinions are putting
me on the brink

We mix better, more than others
They think we're bad, they should look at the noble gases
They're the ones who don't mix at all
Try to make them ask somebody out to
the ball
They won't take their time to make a
single call
They'll be out in the hall alone or leaning against the wall
Would they rather we end up like that
thinking we're all that

You make me give up my electron just like you make my heart skip a beat
In other words, you make me happy,
something not many others can do for me
You make me complete
All the halogens are the same
They're needy, but they don't love me
It's a quid pro quo but not an I love you so

H2O, you're my fellow
I just want to tell you that we can
stay together
No matter what they say
I'm begging you to stay
Let whatever they have in store for us come
Truly yours, Potassium

Potassium reacts very violently with water. I'm glad you liked it.

I have no idea what the significance of potassium is (I failed AP chem) but this is amazing all the same :)

It's so cute how this is scientific and romantic.  I love the idea that the elements have emotions.
