"Gravity" as written by and Eaven Ian Dall Ben James Nairne....
Do you remember the days
When our blue eyes were blinded and we found ourselves?
The brightest stars eclipsed by a windblown sun
We all know that life's not forever
Why can't you see that you'll always be weightless without gravity?

What are you running away from? (Running away from)
Will you ever come back home?

So while you're searching for some direction
Try to remember that I'm still waiting

Why did you run away
Or was it home that ran away from you?
You said that you would stay
So where do you belong when things start to change?
We can't choose where we've come from (Where we've come from)
But we can choose where we go from here

Maybe then things will be different
When you can see there's still life in a dying tree
We'll walk in an evergreen park
Holding hands, we begin to depart

Face to face, eye to eye
On a deathbed we will lie
What brought us together will tear us apart
Heart to heart, yours and mine
Bathed in sunlight, we will shine forever

So while you're searching for some direction
Try to remember that I'm still waiting

Why did you run away
Or was it home that ran away from you?
You said that you would stay
So where do you belong when things start to change?
We can't choose where we've come from (Where we've come from)
But we can choose where we go from here

I now know that time is forever
We are free and we'll always be voices
Unbound in eternity

Why did you run away
Or was it home that ran away from you?
You said that you would stay
So where do you belong when things start to change?
We can't choose where we've come from (Where we've come from)
But we can choose where we go from here

    My InterpretationSounds like a partner has "run away" from a relationship possibly unhappy with the situation, not wanting to commit or wanting to find greener pastures. The narrator however is hoping that like gravity they will come back to them (realise falling in love with them is inevitable).

    The first verse seems to suggest their love is inevitable and the brightest, so why fight it?

    Moves along to the partner leaving (run away), and the narrator can't understand why ("you said you would stay"). They hope they will return ("see there's still life in a dying tree") to them.

    There is no closure at the end of the song, as far as I can tell ... still waiting for them??

    General CommentI have to agree with sokorny. It's a broken relationship. The singer feels as if this is the person they are supposed to end up with, but the other wants to branch out and see what else is out there. It's about that one person that nobody else can seem to erase...
