about

Einstein imagined that he could ride a beam of light;
I imagined if I could ask Einstein a question...

lyrics

QUESTION FOR EINSTEIN

If I could ride a beam of light across the universe
Imagine how that would be
I’d hit the speed limit never age another minute
by special relativity

That's what Einstein dreamt in a thought experiment
To unlock the secrets of the stars
But I wonder if he ever tried to endeavor
To unlock the secrets__ of the heart

CHORUS
Dr. Einstein, the question I would ask
If you were alive and I was sittin' in your class
Of all the beauty in your mind
And all you know of space and time
What is love?

You would give a grin and scratch your chin
Run your fingers through that hair
growing ever weary thinking of a theory
greater than your mc squared

You knew the power of the sun
But what is that compared to the power shared
when two hearts join as one?

CHORUS

You ran out of time before you could find
The answer to all that is
But I will keep on searchin’ to find the inertia
behind a single kiss

CHORUS
