  • Gravity is working against me
    And gravity wants to bring me down

    Oh, I'll never know
    What makes this man, with all the love that his heart can stand
    Dream of ways to throw it all away

    Whoa, whoa
    Gravity is working against me
    And gravity wants to bring me down

    Oh, twice as much ain't twice as good
    And can't sustain like one half could
    It's wanting more that's gonna send me to my knees

    Oh, twice as much ain't twice as good
    And can't sustain like one half could
    It's wanting more that's gonna send me to my knees

    Whoa, whoa
    Gravity, stay the hell away from me
    Whoa, whoa
    Gravity has taken better men than me
    Now how can that be?

    Just keep me where the light is
    Just keep me where the light is
    Just keep me where the light is
    Come on, keep me where the light is
    Come on, keep me where the light is
    Come on, keep me where, now, keep me where the light is Writer/s: John Mayer

  • Kristina from Mp, Nygravity, 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.
  • Ce from Miami, Fli did not know that gravity was played as a NASA wake -up call! i guess the topic is appropreate for space!
  • Ari from X, Netherlandshad a panic attack last night, seems like it`s about something like that. Really like this song now
  • Susan from Westport, MaI 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.
  • Brittni from Mobile, Alits on four of his albums actually.
    where the light is,continuum,try!,and special edition continuum.
  • Maria from Sandanski, BulgariaThe 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.)
  • John from Portland, Orpookielocks, It's only been on one album, smart one, other than a few live ones.
  • Pookielocks from Ohio, Ohi absolutely hate this one and i don't understand why he puts it on every album!!
  • Michelina from The Mountains, CoOne of the best lines ever: "Oh twice as much / ain't twice as good / And can't sustain / like one half could." Brilliant.
  • Sam from Lincoln, Ne"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.
  • Sherrad from South Bend, InJohn 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!
