JOHNNY CALLS THE CHEMIST - WONDERBOOM (March 2001)

Wonderboom

Johnny calls the chemist, the chemist doesn't come.
Her mind is in the twilight and Johnny hears the hum
He wonders if she'll hear him, in a night that's full of sound
It could be that she loves him but the love is underground

Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
But the chemist doesn't come.

He shoots a mental arrow from the bow of his mind
And piercing through her consciousness he wonders what he'll find
She's making little headway, in a passage flicks a light
A lone car on the highway, calls for Johnny in the night
She feels the silent offering that he's making to the sky
And wonders if he'll hear her 'cause she's just about to die

Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
But the chemist doesn't come.

Sliding to unconsciousness she meets him in the air
He's burning her with fire, she overcomes the fear,
Johnny's travelling faster, he's spinning in her head
Make no mistake about it, their history will be read
Then Johnny calls the chemist but the chemist doesn't come
She's back inside the twilight and Johnny hears the hum...

Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
Johnny calls the chemist,
But the chemist doesn't come.
