about

Einstein makes an appearance and the subway takes a couple on a ride out into the universe

lyrics

Speed of Light

She was riding on the subway reading Einstein
Looked up from her book, caught me as I stared
We were moving really fast along the east – west line
I asked her didn’t E equal MC squared
When she broke into a smile my heart broke into flight
Were we moving twice as fast as the speed of light

There was energy between us and magic in the air
I stumbled in towards her on a sharp left curve
Felt electrostatic shocks when my fingers brushed her hair
Felt a chemical imbalance, man she must have touched a nerve
As the train rumbled on through a long hard right
We were moving twice as fast as the speed of light

In a world of science we live with hope and danger
Take a ride, take a chance, take a fall in the hands of a stranger

That electric train went dark and the place began to shake
We looked out of the window but we could have been on Mars
We roared into a tunnel – didn’t even break
I took another look and I was staring at the stars
From the middle of the universe the earth’s a pretty sight
When you’re moving twice as fast as the speed of light

In a world of science we live with hope and danger
Take a ride, take a chance, take a fall in the hands of a stranger
