From the album El Diablo EP

Theory of Everything is kinda like what would happen if the Beach Boys and the Eagles got together an made a country song. Listen for bittersweet chord changes and rich, beachy harmonies.

THEORY OF EVERYTHING
By Eric Meyers
Copyright 2017

Kicked back on the beach last night and I watched the stars roll in over me
I still can’t remember why we don’t belong
The Theory of Everything talks about all the ways it’s supposed to be
But you’ve got me thinking that they might be wrong

I never was a straight A student
The apple only fell for Newton
But even he never could explain
The thing that takes away all the pain

Everything is one thing
But it’s nothing that you can see
Let me tell you something
It’s a beautiful mystery

They’ll sell you a bottle of something that pays the bills and makes dreams come true
They think you’ll drink anything they say to try
But this thing we’re sipping flows from a spring we know they could never find
It’s some kind of potion nobody can buy

It isn’t from a laboratory
It’s more like an old time story
That always was, always gonna be
Handed down now to you and me

Everything is one thing,
But it’s nothing that you can see
Let me tell you something
It’s a beautiful mystery

It’s a rollercoaster
It’s a ship on a stormy sea
When you think your chute won’t open
Close your eyes and pull the ripcord
If you’re falling, fall along with me


Time has a funny way of showing you what you couldn’t see yesterday
No one gets through this without any scars
So they can make plans and schemes and an invent new ways to control old things
And we’ll be here laughing beneath all these stars

There’s no cosmic calculation
It’s not a country mile equation
It’s easy math any one can see
Everything equals you and me

Everything is one thing
But it’s nothing that you can see
Let me tell you something
It’s a beautiful mystery
