lyrics

time and space are relative
einstein said back when he lived

the only thing that doesn’t change
makes everything else rearrange
is the speed of light, it’s the speed of light
your love for me must be the speed of light

the man in the moon said the earth was blue
you don’t have to leave to know that’s true

i had to run before i knew how to crawl
the first step was hard but i’ve had trouble with them all
but now the night grows darker and the day grows dim
and i know i never will see you again
and i almost made you happy

there’s a river of love that runs through all times
but there’s a river of fire that burns with no light
the flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
from the lies we deny and we breathe until we choke
but there’s a river of love that runs through all times
