"Down to Earth" as written by and Mason David/nugent Levy....
Oh, oh, oh

I never thought that it'd be easy
'Cause we both so distant now
And the walls are closing in on us
And we're wondering how
No one has a solid answer
We're just walking in the dark
And you can see the look on my face
It just tears me apart

So we fight (so we fight) through the hurt (through the hurt)
And we'll cry, and cry, and cry, and cry
And we live (and we live) and we learn (and we learn)
And we try, and try, and try, and try

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle
On our way back down to earth
Down to earth, down to earth
On our way back down to earth
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)

Mommy you were always somewhere
And Daddy I live outta town
So tell me how could I ever be normal somehow
You tell me this is for the best
So tell me why am I in tears, whoa
So far away and now I just need you here

So we fight (so we fight) through the hurt (through the hurt)
And we'll cry, and cry, and cry, and cry
And we live (and we live) and we learn (and we learn)
And we try, and try, and try, and try

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle
On our way back down to earth
Down to earth, down to earth
On our way back down to earth
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)

We fell so far away from where we used to be
Now we're standing, and where do we go
When there's no road, to get to your heart
Let's start over again

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle
On our way back down to earth
Down to earth, down to earth
On our way back down to earth
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)
(Back down to earth, back down to earth)

I never thought that it'd be easy
'Cause we both so distant now
And the walls are closing in on us
And we're wondering how.

    General CommentDivorce is the worse thing that can happen to a kid. Especially when they are old enough to know what is going on. But my paents were never married and I never met my dad because he was in a different city. And my mom was working to try to support us. The song hits me the same way. They don't have to be divorced. Just saying.

    General Commentyeah, it's obvious it's about two parents getting a divorce. and i'm sure it's about when it happend to his parents. to me this is the most meaningful song he's written. it's beautiful, heartfelt and true to life.

    "So its up to to you, and its up to me that we meet in the middle on our way back down to earth."
    to me that line is about his mother, his father, and himself deciding where they should meet up so justin can go with his mother or father, depending on which one he's with at that time. it's up to him and it's up to them.
    it's at that short time when him and both of his parents are in the same place, and to him it feels like they're a normal, down to earth family.
    im probably wrong, but that's what i got out of it.

    General CommentYehh, this is the most meaningful song on the album, it's also Justin's favourite song too. Im glad this one is his favourite cos it shows his deeper side and helps everyone else understand him more too. Its pretty obvious that his past has helped turn him into the strong brave person he is today. As hard as divorce is, you have two options, you can cry and cry and cry, and give up, or do the crying, pick yourself up and battle through it. I'm glad Justin did the latter! with all that behind him, its no wonder he no longer fears easily.

    I think this kid is going to be a mega-star like MJ was.

    General CommentIt's really deep and I really like this song cause it's a little different from everything else on the CD, and I love Justin, so I feel bad for him that his parents are divorced, and mine are too.
