Almost sounds like Leonerd Cohen's 'Hallelujah'.

That was great. It sounded inspired by Jeff Buckley's rendition of Cohen's "Hallelujah".

"There's billions of you that I could choose from, but you're the one for me because you're the closest one" seems a little too honest for a love song, even a chemistry love song.
