gravity, is about John Mayer not wanting to get to famous and big headyed, but it also doesnt want to disappear. He is comfortable where he is not, he wants to stay grounded. Gravity.

I used to play this song on my ipod when I was trying to recover from a second herniated disk. It made me feel stronger. I couldn't walk. It makes me cry when I think about my struggle to walk again.

The song was used as a wake up call for the astronaut Pilot Charles O. Hobaugh and for the astronauts aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour on August 11, 2007.(The wake-up call is a tradition for NASA spaceflights since the days of Project Gemini.)

One of the best lines ever: "Oh twice as much / ain't twice as good / And can't sustain / like one half could." Brilliant.

"Gravity" is one of my favorite John Mayers songs. It is so beautifully done that it brings tears to my eyes. Anyone who says that white boys can't write or sing blues songs should give this one a listen.

John Mayer has always showed maturity beyond is years...and this song is so soulful.....seemily from an old soul....or a person that has lived a really tough life. It is an amazing song. Well done!
