Gravity

  • I was there on the day truth died
    Blood on my hands throw 'em up in the sky
    I was the number one sinner, no less
    My life was a lie, and my wish was a death
    I fell in love with the ways of the world
    Money, the fame, the boose, the girls
    But I couldn't stay faithful, if I've tried
    I turned in to a devil, you could see it in my eyes
    I blacked out, told everything I ever did
    I couldn't take all the lies I was living with
    I broke your heart, woke up the next day
    My bags outside, yelling, "Get the hell away!
    You're not a husband, not a father, just a pig
    And you can't never change all the things that you did!"
    That's when I knew it, it wouldn't last
    You never get away, when you're running from the past

    I will fly into outer space
    I float away, but you're my gravity
    I will die to love another day
    We rise again and lose our gravity

    I'm a broken man, I'm full of sin
    I'm sick of all this hell that I'm living in
    And I can't escape it, this is how it feels
    When you try to numb the pain with a thousand pills
    You tore me down, wished that I was dead
    Said you wanna sleep alone in another bed
    But when I push away, you only pull me closer
    It's only over when we both wanna say it's over
    I gotta change this is not who I am
    I wanna start over wanna try this again
    You're everything I need, everything I'm not
    So pull the trigger, give me one more shot

    I will fly into outer space
    I float away, but you're my gravity
    (I will die) die to love another day
    We rise again and lose our gravity

    You love me, you hate me, you kiss me, you break me
    You lifted me up just to watch as you broke me
    You promised me, looked me straight in the eyes
    No matter what you say, I don't know truth from the lies
    I helped you up, like I always do
    I forgave you for your sins and I carried you through them
    No matter how hard we fought, we always knew
    You will bleed for me, and I will bleed for you

    Fly into outer space
    I float away, but you're my gravity
    Die to love another day
    We rise again and lose our gravity

    I will fly into outer space
    I float away, but you're my gravity
    (I will die) die to love another day
    We rise again and lose our gravity

    I will fly into outer space
    I float away, but you're my gravity
    (I will die) die to love another day
    We rise again and lose our gravity

    Baby, we can float away Writer/s: JACOBY DAKOTA SHADDIX, JERRY HORTON, KEVIN CHURKO, MARIA BRINK, TOBIN JOSEPH ESPERANCE
