  • 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: Mason Levy, Waynne Nugent, Kevin John Risto, Carlos Battey, Steven Battey, Justin Bieber
