Josh Ritter – Since You've Gone (Hidden Track) lyrics

Well theres one thing mama
I think you should know
It is not love
That makes the flowers grow
But a complex electron transfer process known as photosynthesis
When chlorofyll reacts to the light of day
But since you're gone
The light has gone away

Well theres one more thing mama
I think you will find
It is not love
That makes the stars shine
But the spontaneous combuston of super heated super condensed gasses
In a process known as fusion
That creates new elements when the time is right
But since you're gone
The stars don't shine so bright

Well theres another thing mama
I think I should confide
It is not love
That'll turn the tide
But the net difference in the gravitational pull
Between the earth and the moon
As it is acted out upon the waves
But since youre gone
I feel washed away

I could've been a mathmatician
Studied rockets for a livin
Would've worked out better in the end
But to get more specific
I'd break every law of physics
To bring you back to me again

Well theres one more thing
I'll tell you if I can
It is not love
That makes a non-stick frying pan
But a top secret trademark conglomerated
Most likely carcinogenic polyeurothane compound
Spreading of microthin substance over a negatively charged layer
Of aluminum, copper, iron, lead, vhs, fyi, apple pie, fbi,
And some other elements too
But since youre gone
I wish I'd stuck to you.
