Lyrics: The Chaos of You

In the summer of 2009, we were invited to the Williamstown Theatre Festival to work on a new musical, GOLDEN GATE.  It was a pretty incredible experience for us.  If you’re not familiar with Williamstown, you should make it a point to become so.  It’s summer camp for theater geeks.  Good times all around.

The night after GOLDEN GATE closed, and our last night at the festival, was the evening of the Perseid Meteor Shower, which is an unbelievable spectacle. I watched it from the roof of the theater.  For an astronomy nerd stuck in a city where you’re lucky to see a star, let alone a meteor shower, it was pretty awesome.

This song came about as a result.

The Chaos of You

Perfect Massachusetts night.
A thousand tiny specs of light
Go streaking ‘cross the summer sky.

Shooting stars, they fall from grace,
Hurtle blind through time and space.
There’s got to be some reason why.

All around the heavens slowly start to fall.
They go tumbling through a universe that makes no sense at all.

Yeah, the world’s a mess.
It’s chaotic and random,
I couldn’t care less.
Cause I found something true
In the intricate chaos of you.

All this cosmic energy
Is swirling through infinity.
A mystery, I can’t explain.

But the bigger secret lies
In those supernova eyes
And all the worlds that they contain.

There are forces I will never understand.
But it doesn’t seem to matter any time you take my hand.

Yeah, the world’s a mess.
It’s chaotic and random,
I couldn’t care less.
Cause I found something true
In the intricate chaos of you.

You lie by my side as the heavens rush past.
I feel like I’m falling impossibly fast.
In a world full of madness that won’t ever cease.
Somehow I found my place of peace.

So the world goes spinning on
As the day begins to dawn.
Your eyes meet mine in the space between.

Time slows down for just awhile.
In a single simple smile,
I fin’lly see what it all might mean.

Hold me close beneath the brilliant skies above.
We’ll go tumbling through the contradicting senselessness of love.

Yeah, the world’s a mess.
It’s chaotic and random,
I couldn’t care less.
Cause I found something true
In the intricate chaos of you.

Yes, I found something true
In the intricate chaos of you.
