  • Oh, oh, oh

    I never thought that it'd be easy
    'Cause we both so distant now
    And the walls are closing in on us
    And we're wondering how
    No one has a solid answer
    Just walking in the dark
    And you can see the look on my face
    It just tears me apart

    So we fight (so we fight) through the hurt (through the hurt)
    And we cry, and cry, and cry, and cry
    And we live (and we live) and we learn (and we learn)
    And we try, and try, and try, and try

    So it's up to you and it's up to me
    That we meet in the middle
    On our way back down to earth
    Down to earth, down to earth
    On our way back down to earth
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)

    Mommy you were always somewhere
    And Daddy I live outta town
    So tell me how could I ever be normal some how
    You tell me this is for the best
    So tell me why am I in tears, woah
    So far away and now I just need you here

    So we fight (so we fight) through the hurt (through the hurt)
    And we cry, and cry, and cry, and cry
    And we live (and we live) and we learn (and we learn)
    And we try, and try, and try, and try

    So it's up to you and it's up to me
    That we meet in the middle
    On our way back down to earth
    Down to earth, down to earth
    On our way back down to earth
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)

    We fell so far away from where we used to be
    Now we're standing, and where do we go
    When there's no road, to get to your heart
    Let's start over again

    So it's up to you and it's up to me
    That we meet in the middle
    On our way back down to earth
    Down to earth, down to earth
    On our way back down to earth
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)
    (Back down to earth, back down to earth)

    I never thought that it'd be easy
    'Cause we both so distant now
    And the walls are closing in on us
    And we're wondering how. Writer/s: Carlos Battey, Justin Bieber, Kevin John Risto, Mason Levy, Steven Battey, Waynne Nugent

  • Elizabeth from Tennessee 37760this song is also easy for me to relate because i have been with 2 guys and we somehow never worked out and it hurts me so bad. so this is how I have been since then. I still am crying everyday wishing we would have worked out but we didn't so no biggie.:( he is living his dream. JB you rock.
  • Anna from Peru, IlThis song is reallly easy for me to relate to because thats exactly how i feel now. All Justin's song have deep meanings but this one, to me, has the most. it gives me hope i'll be okay after this is all over because it hapened to JB and he's living his dream now
