Song: “Gravity (Redux)”

“Gravity (Redux)”

Behind the Song

I wrote the original “Gravity” a few months back. I struggled with this song. Wrote two different versions. Settled on one of them … but I felt there were dangly bitst that didn’t quite hang snugly together.

So I took out my shears and snipped a few diverging threads, and stiched the rest into a tighter weave.

Whereas before the song swung between the sentiment of head-over-heels love and that of impending doom, this version charts a course down the center of lovesickness.

Lyrics

I am helpless when I fall into your eyes
you've got me spinning like a moon.
I am reckless to be standing at your door
spilling my secrets so soon.

I'm caught in your gravity
fallin' fast and I can't break free
I'm caught in your gravity
and I can't break free

You say you'll miss me when you kiss me
then you make me watch you walk away.
I am drifting I am flailing in the void
with no star to light my way.

I'm caught in your gravity
fallin' fast and I can't break free
I'm caught in your gravity
and I can't break free

Is there nothing I can say, dear?
To make you want to come and stay here?
Maybe if I could learn to play it cool;
But I always seem to play the fool;
Always holding out my sweaty hands,
to catch every little word you ever say.

I'm caught in your gravity
fallin' fast and I can't break free
I'm caught in your gravity
and I can't break free
