CC chord                 GG chord          EbEb chord                FF chord
It starts with an idea or an impulse to make a sound,
           CC chord                 GG chord                   EbEb chord               FF chord
And then a message gets sent to my head where my vocal chords are found.


       BbBb chord                     FF chord              CC chord 
And they vibrate, and cause the air to vibrate too.
         BbBb chord                     FF chord                    GG chord 
Then the air gets shot out of my mouth on its way to you!


CC chord              GG chord              EbEb chord           FF chord
This vibration I've just made travels as a wave,
       CC chord          GG chord                         EbEb chord                FF chord
But if I vibrated differently then it would cause the wave to change.


          BbBb chord           FF chord                     CC chord 
If I sing low then the frequency of the wave drops.
          BbBb chord            FF chord
If I sing high then the frequency is high too.
                                        GG chord 
And if I sing loud then my micro-phone pops!


    CC chord                  GG chord               EbEb chord               FF chord
The sound wave travels through the air unless it hits a wall
         CC chord              GG chord                       EbEb chord                FF chord
Then the higher frequencies get absorbed and the deeper ones pass through


               BbBb chord                FF chord                   CC chord 
And that's why when I'm behind a window I sound like this.
           BbBb chord              FF chord                                       GG chord 
And if the wall is hard the sound bounces back and you can hear an echo!


             CC chord              GG chord               EbEb chord              FF chord
The sound is captured by my micro-phone and sorted digitally,
           CC chord                 GG chord                  EbEb chord                    FF chord
That was until you play this video and now your speakers are mimicking me


            BbBb chord                  FF chord               CC chord 
And now the waves are back and going into your ear.
            BbBb chord                                       GG chord 
Only 6 more steps inside your head until you get to hear!


CC chord        GG chord          BbBb chord
Sound is touch at a distance,
FF chord                  CC chord         GG chord              BbBb chord         FF chord
When they say that music can touch you, it literally does.


CC chord        GG chord        BbBb chord
Sound is a vi-ber-ation,
    FF chord                CC chord       GG chord                    BbBb chord
But thanks to modern science we can know that it's shaking our eardrums:


BbBb chord
And the drum then shakes some tiny bones
CC chord 
And the bones send vibrations to a liquid
BbBb chord
And the waves in the liquid bend some hairs
CC chord 
And the hairs send a signal to the brain
BbBb chord                                            CC chord                 GG chord 
And it's only when it forms a pattern in your head that you can hear!
