"Einstein" as written by Kelly Brianne Clarkson, Bridget Kelly, Toby Gad and James Fauntleroy....
Simple math
Our love divided by the square root of pride
Multiply your lifeless time
I'm going out of my mind
It was heaven when I finally figured it out alone

Didn't get it the first time
But don't think I've been so blind
And I may not be Einstein
But I Know
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you

Even had the nerves to flirt with her in front of my face
Here's your keys, your bags, your clothes and now get out of my place
You say I'm crazy, and that we're happy
Is that supposed to comfort me?

Didn't get it the first time
But don't think I've been so blind
And I may not be Einstein
But I Know
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Dumb plus dumb equals you

All of your promises, flushed
A thousand apologies, just
Take out the pain and then it leaves us
With nothing at all, no, nothing at all

You can stop wasting my time
Without you I'm just fine
Why did it take me so long to figure out
Dumb plus dumb equals you, equals you

Didn't get it the first time
Don't think I'd be so blind
Yeah I may not be Einstein
But I know

Dumb plus dumb equals you, equals you

Simple math
Our love divided by the square root of pride
Multiply your lifeless time
I'm going out of my mind
And I may not be Einstein

But I know dumb plus dumb equals you, equals you

    General Commentsimple math, our love divided by the square root of pride.

    it was heavy when i finally figured it out. alone.

    i didn't get it the first time,
    but don't think i've been so blind.
    and i may not be Einstein but i know
    dumb + dumb = you.

    even had the nerve to flirt with her in front of my face.
    here's ya keys, ya bags, ya clothes and now get outta my place.
    you say i'm crazy and that we're happy.
    is that supposed to comfort me?

    but don't think i've been so blind.

    you can stop wasting my time.
    without you i'm just fine.
    why did it take me so long to figure out
    dumb plus dumb equals you?

    don't think i'd be so blind.
    and i may not be Einstein but i know
    dumb + dumb = you.

    simple math, our love divided by the square root of pride.

    My OpinionI think that this song is about being blind to the things that he
    was doing to her and how he was hurting her and that she's now realizing
    what a dumb ass he is and he's not worth wasting her time on .

    General CommentThis mid-tempo jam finds Kelly singing about a deadbeat boyfriend. "I may not be Einstein but dumb + dumb ='s YOU!" she insists. Clarkson's song is one of several in popular music to name check the German-Swiss scientist who formulated the theory of relativity. Here are a few more:
    1. "Einstein" by Gabriella Cilmi ("I'd like to think like Einstein/.know the beauty of pi").
    2. "Einstein On the Beach (For An Eggman)" by ("Einstein's down on the beach standing in the sand /'Cause everything he believes in is shattered").
    3. "Set The World On Fire" by Megadeth ("Einstein said 'We'll use rocks on the other side'").
    4. "Desolation Row" by Bob Dylan. The fifth verse imagines a washed-up Albert Einstein living on Desolation Row.
    5. "E+MC2" by Big Audio Dynamite. The song title refers to Einstein's formula that made nuclear power possible.
    6. "Einstein A Go-Go" by Landscape. This Techno-Pop song was a #5 hit in the UK for British group Landscape in 1982.
    A keen amateur violin player himself, Einstein played Bach and Mozart. During his time in Princeton, New Jersey, Einstein used to play his violin in a string quartet. Whilst he enjoyed the sessions, his colleagues were not so enthused. One of the other players complained of him after one performance: "He can't count."
