Love & Gravity
words & music by Fredric O. Knipe

I didn't know I knew all about the atom but I do
It's small
I didn't know I knew the best design in rockets isn't wide
It's tall
It turns out that I knew that love and gravity are why
We fall
And I didn't know I knew life's deepest meaning but it's short
That's all

So when I say that life's confusing•
As I know I do sometimes•
Remind me that I do get what it is•
That's serious or interesting or wise

I didn't know I knew the way to be believable is talk•
Real low
I didn't know I knew the trick to neurosurgery is go•••
Real slow
Surprisingly I knew that love and gravity are why•
We fall
But I didn't know I knew life's deepest meaning is it's short•••
And that's all

So if I ask you to elect or hire me
Or to let me father you a child
Keep in mind how much I really know
Given time to think about it twice

It turned out that I knew that love and gravity are why•
We fall
And now I can report that life's real meaning is it's short•
That's all
