Gravity, Sara Bareilles

I wish I had written these words.  I’ve never heard anything so descriptive of addiction before in my life.  I never could’ve written this because I’ve never experienced addiction.  Sometimes I wish my life story were more dramatic so I could write things well.  But then again, sometimes I think these songs do more damage than healing, and that maybe it’s better I’ve never experienced anything like this before.

Sara Bareilles – Gravity

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
‘Til 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 rain

Set me free
Leave me be
I don’t wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am
And I stand so tall
Just the way I am supposed to be
But you’re on to me
And all over me

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 wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am
And I stand so tall
Just the way I am supposed to be
But you’re on to me
And all over me

I live here on my knees and 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
You’re on to me, you’re on to me, and all over

Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long.
