"Gravity" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, William Champion, Christopher Anthony John Martin and Jonathan Mark Buckland....
Honey, it's been a long time coming
And I can't stop now.
Such a long time running
And I can't stop now.
Do you hear my heart beating?
Can you hear the sound?
'Cause I can't help thinking
And I don't look down.

And then I looked up at the sun and I could see
All the way that gravity turns for you and me.
And then I looked up at the sky and saw the sun
And the way that gravity pulls on everyone.
On everyone.

Baby, it's been a long time waiting.
Such a long, long time.
And I can't stop smiling.
No, I can't stop now.
Do you hear my heart beating?
Can you hear the sound?
'Cause I can't help crying and I won't look down.

And then I looked up at the sun and I could see
All the way that gravity turns you and me.
And then I looked up at the sun and saw the sky
And the way that gravity pulls on you and I.
On you and I.

Can you hear my heart beating?
Oh do you hear that sound?
'Cause I can't help crying and I won't look down.

    General Commentwas written by Chris Martin but gave the song to his friend Danny (who sings this) as he thought he sounded so much like them. This about not seeing your lover for awhile and you are on the way to meet them and you are so excited - 'can you hear my heart beating'. Written on a plane I reckon.

    General CommentGorgeous song. It reminds me of my ex bf who I didnt see for a while and this song perfectly describes how I felt when I met him again and still had feelings for him..

    General Commentagreeing with the whole not seeing ur lover thing but i reckon cos i think this band is christian...it could be to do with hard core worship-crying, heart beating, not looking down....long time running-been with jesus 4 a lng time wont stop now...?perhaps?MAYBE NOT, WHO KNOWS

    General CommentClaire333, I see how it could be taken in a religious context, but to me, the fact that they use the word honey and baby suggest that it is definitely directed to a lover rather than god or jesus.

    General CommentI agree with andypandy,I think that this song is about the one you love...but the one you PHYISICALLY love,not SPIRITUALLY...anyway,it's good to exchange different opinions about song lyrics...it shows that there's a different world inside each one of us,a secret universe...and some songs are the key for this universe...I love Gravity,even if it doesn't carry good memories for me,but everytime that I listen to it I can hardly breathe for it's so wonderful.

    General CommentThe line 'and I can't stop smiling, and I can't stop now', always reminds me of people creating an image for you, always thinking you're happy, and how it's really hard to show you're sad when people don't see you like that.

    General CommentThis song was actually written by Chris Martin from Coldplay to be put on their comming up album, however he gave it to Embrace to use instead.
