I'm on the other side of things, you know
I'm on the other side of things
And I can't be laughing when you look at me
Cause you're operating out of jealousy
Well I'm not gonna hear anything you say
I'll listen but I won't let it in my way
Up above, I'm looking at the heavy ground
I can feel it, but it wont let it drag me down

Over time you can kill me, but I'll resurrect so
You're never gonna thrill me
But you can kiss my ass so
Woahh You're bringing me down
Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!
Woahh you're bringing me down
Pick it up! pick it up! pick it up!

Gravity is a parallel on words
And over time it will slowly start to hurt ya
Even though it don't feel like anything
It ain't something you can fix with a diamond ring
I'm not gonna hear anything you say
I'll listen but I wont let it in my way
Up above I'm looking at the heavy ground
I can feel it but it wont let it drag me down

Over time you can kill me, but I'll resurrect so
You're never gonna thrill me
But you can kiss my ass so
Woahh You're bringing me down
Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!
Woahh you're bringing me down
Pick it up! pick it up! pick it up!

Don't prostitute yourself
You're selling yourself out
You're a better man than that
And time will show you

Woahh You're bringing me down
Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!
Woahh you're bringing me down
Pick it up! pick it up! pick it up!
Woahh You're bringing me down
Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!
Woahh you're bringing me down
Pick it up! pick it up! pick it up!

    General CommentShe broke up with a guy, he wants her back, she wants to move on, he clings on, she tells him he's better than that

    General Comment"You're never gonna thrill me, but you can kiss my ass so NANANANANA. Woahh You're bringing me down." I'm guessing he's hostile about her control over him. If he didn't care (if he were indifferent) he wouldn't be so angry. In other words, he protests too much :)

    General CommentExboyfriends, what? I can't figure out how this song is about exes. Just watch the official video of the song, it gives you the clue. According to that the song tells the scenario of how individuals are treated when they are doesn't fit into the crowd and the hard battle between their confidence and the crowd's hurting words.

    My interpretation looks like somehow this:
    "I'm on the other side of things, you know
    I'm on the other side of things"
    Says I'm not like you, I'm different, I see things otherwise.

    "Well I'm not gonna hear anything you say
    I'll listen but I won't let it in my way"
    I don't let your opinion to ruin my personality

    "Up above, I'm looking at the heavy ground
    I can feel it, but it wont let it drag me down"
    Even though, I believe in myself, the more people critizes me, the harder to keep standing.

    "Woahh You're bringing me down
    Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up! Pick it up!
    Woahh you're bringing me down
    Pick it up! pick it up! pick it up!"
    It's getting hard to stand up for myself, the crowd is bringing me down, let's pick myself up from the ground fastly and rebuild my confidence.

    "Don't prostitute yourself
    You're selling yourself out
    You're a better man than that
    And time will show you"
    Don't change yourself to fit into the crowd, you value more than that, just keep doing what you doing and it will bring the success.

    My InterpretationSo basically, "gravity" is the force of conformist critics' pulling down an individual.
