Great Waves (The Gravitational Waves Song)

from Song Adventures 2017 by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

We orbit each other as we yearn
We feel each others’ pull and burn
As we dance I see us turn / increasingly so fast

They say we may be past our prime
No we’re not Gs, we’re not that type
Cannot escape attraction this time / to each others’ mass

They see us as black holes
Or maybe neutron stars
If they listen closely
They’ll hear us very far

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make Great Waves

The speed of light cannot be changed
Lasers set, mirrors arranged
To sense when we have bent their space / by fractions of protons

They'll make a world-wide network
Of interferometers
And we’ll combine our talents to
Make a show that can be heard

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make great waves

Einstein said that generally
In terms of relativity
When massive bodies make activity / for lightyears we’ll bend space

The next act is a nova
But now’s our time to shine
We’ll create some ripples
Throughout space and time

When you and I
We both collide
They’ll see from far away
You and I— We will make great waves
