Then they came along in their giant truck
And they knocked you, they knocked you down
You should have seen yourself lying there, all broken
Woah, gravity, it got you good

I walked away pretending not to know you
And I hoped that you were still out cold
And I thought of the time you said I was your favorite
And that I looked like just like a holiday

Woah, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity

I was younger then, barely in high school
When you found me, you took me in
And then one day, you put me on the highway
You said that gravity was going to do me in

Woah, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity

    General CommentThis has some great yodelling!

    I don't really know what this song means. I think "gravity" is a reminder of the real world. It's just the realization of what really is happening.

    General CommentI think that the guy in the song is a pimp and Jenny is a teenage runaway who becomes a hooker. The pimp treats her badly and finally he gets hit by a truck and she is finally free. its about karma.

    General CommentI agree. I think gravity is karma. Or the harsh consequences of your actions.
