Gravity

Album: Little Voice (2007)
  • Something always brings me back to you
    It never takes too long
    No matter what I say or do
    I'll still feel you here 'till the moment I'm gone

    You hold me without touch
    You keep me without chains
    I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love
    And not feel your reign

    Set me free, leave me be
    I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity
    Here I am, and I stand
    So tall, just the way I'm supposed to be
    But you're on to me and all over me

    Oh, you loved me 'cause I'm fragile
    When I thought that I was strong
    But you touch me for a little while
    And all my fragile strength is gone

    Set me free, leave me be
    I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity
    Here I am, and I stand
    So tall, just the way I'm supposed to be
    But you're on to me and all over me

    I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
    That you're everything I think I need here on the ground
    But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go
    The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down
    You're keeping me down, eh ooh
    You're on to me, on to me, and all over

    Something always brings me back to you
    It never takes too long Writer/s: Sara Bareilles

  • Jfp from IranWhat ever this song mean; I'm listening when I'm sad and imagine that we will never be toghther... but I will love you
  • Dale from Melbourne Kurt Cobain once said songs mean whatever they mean to you.
  • Lynn from Los AngelesSara Bareilles states that this song was about her first real heartbreak.
  • Mary from UsaThis song is about falling in love.... with a forbidden lover. To love so passionately that love is taking over your ability to do what you know is right. You want to leave; to do what's right; but the moment you think you're strong the feelings are undeniable... there's no turning back. But in the end you beg that the lover will turn and walk away...
    You can feel the passion, pain and
    Grief of this broken heart. I know all too well.
  • Bobo from Los Angeles, CaIn So You Think You Can Dance, this song was used for addicition. I do not in any way shape or form discredit what was said here, but if one really wanted to, he or she could interpret it in a different way. In SYTYCD, it works for addiction, and I also associate it with depression. I know it is about heartbreak, but it also could be interpreted in one's own opinion for other things that bring you down and you cannot get away from, no matter how hard you try (i.e. addiciton, depression, etc)
  • Jessie from Arlington, VaOn the special dual CD edition of "Little Voice", she states before the acoustic version that this is a song written about her first real heartbreak.
  • Glenda from Cagliari, ItalyIt's just lovely! Still full of power.
