"Gravity" as written by Tom Douglas and Ben Schofield....
Gravity, keep me on solid ground
Gravity, come on hold me down

I'm asking for it
So touch me in an instant and I'll see again that I need you for it
Extol me with compassion and I'm back to earth
Consequence of my lack of common sense

I can't be sure why it seems that I can never learn from my mistakes
I want change, I want love coming from inside and breaking through my skin, my words
Giving me more than you already deserve
I should know it's always been easier, easier to break then build
So hold me tight

You're gravity to me, keep me on the ground when I start to float
You're gravity to me, come on hold me down when I start to float away
Gravity- keep me on solid ground
Gravity- come on hold me down

I'm willing to make mistakes
But I will refuse to live inside of them
Can't stop me, I'll make them freely
Though you hold the burdens of the ground beneath my feet
You were correct and I will gladly receive

It's always been easier, easier to break then build
So hold me tight
You're gravity to me, keep me on the ground when I start to float
You're gravity to me, come on hold me down when I start to float away

(Come on hold me down
Keep me on the ground
Hold me when I start to float
Come on hold me down
Won't you please just hold me down?)


Keep me on solid ground
Gravity
You're gravity to me, keep me on the ground when I start to float
You're gravity to me, hold me down when I start to float away

    General CommentI LOVE this song; it's basically about asking God to keep him grounded despite his failures (which he knows will always be present).
    So God=Gravity, sort of :)
