Lori McKenna — “Rocket Science” Lyrics


(“Rocket Science” is from Lori McKenna’s album Lorraine. Additional Lori McKenna lyrics can be found here.)

Rocket Science

They say it ain’t complicated;
Any fool can understand
Until the fuse is lit and
It blows up in your hand.

It all looks good on paper.
Step by step you follow the plan.
In the sky watch the desperate vapor
until it blows up in your hand.

Love is rocket science;
What comes up, it must come down.

In burning pieces on the ground
We watched it fall.
Maybe love is rocket science after all.

Not if but when you crash and burn,
Somehow you survive.
But you’ve touched the hem of heaven;
For a time you felt alive.

Love is rocket science;
What comes up, it must come down.

In burning pieces on the ground
We watched it fall.
Maybe love is rocket science after all.

From a distance, in the twilight,
Love is such a beautiful thing.
Dry you eyes beneath the night sky
And I’ll hold you, I’ll hold you, I’ll hold you like our dream.

Love is rocket science;
What comes up, it must come down.

In tragic pieces on the ground
It’s worth it all.
Maybe love is rocket science.
