"Losing Altitude" as written by and Michael Jonathan Epstein....
I feel like a planet
That hasn't got a moon
Come orbit me and light night skies
With everything you do
But I won't give up gravity or tides
Or anything for you

I feel like a pilot
Who's lost the nerve to fly
I still look up every day
And dream of ruling the sky
But I won't give up gravity or tides
Or anything for you

I'm losing

I feel like a comet
That hasn't got a tail
Come follow me and cut the sky
With your luminescent trail
But I won't give up gravity or tides
Or anything for you
Tonight I'm slowly, but surely
Losing altitude

I'm losing

Like a hypernova that can't explode
I suck you into my black hole
And rip you up
Send you back in time
To places that have haunted you
And hurt you all of your life

I'm losing…altitude

    General CommentI feel like a planet
    That hasn't got a moon-
    moons are a necessity for planets
    because they help you keep time
    by changing day into night.


    Come orbit me and light night skies
    With everything you do-
    he wants her to be around and make
    his life a little brighter, cause everything
    she does/says makes him happy.


    But I won't give up gravity or tides
    Or anything for you-
    hes saying that he he doesnt want to give
    anything in return, he wont give up
    old habits just for her.



    I feel like a pilot
    Who's lost the nerve to fly-
    he feels like he's getting scared of
    everything, the usual things he does.



    I still look up every day
    And dream of ruling the sky-
    he dreams of being the God in his
    own world.


    But I won't give up gravity or tides
    Or anything for you-
    same as above ^^



    I'm losing

    I feel like a comet
    That hasn't got a tail-
    he feels like he doesnt have
    everything put together.



    Come follow me and cut the sky
    With your luminescent trail-
    he wants her to come with him
    and he wants to show off that he gets to enjoy
    her.


    But I won't give up gravity or tides
    Or anything for you-
    same as above ^^



    Tonight I'm slowly, but surely
    Losing altitude-
    he's losing hope.



    I'm losing

    Like a hypernova that can't explode
    I suck you into my black hole-
    he's frustarted because he cant do things hes
    supposed to able to, and hes getting her
    involved with his stress and frustration.


    And rip you up
    Send you back in time
    To places that have haunted you
    And hurt you all of your life-
    he mentally hurts her badly
    and wants ehr to suffer, but not really
    since hes only dealing with his frustration
    the wrong way.

    I'm losing…altitude



    idk if that makes sens to you
    but thats what i thought of.
