Gravity

Original and similar lyrics
Something always brings me back to you. It never takes too long. No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone. You hold me without touch. You keep me without chains. I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your reign. [Chorus:] Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity. Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be. But you're on to me and all over me. You loved me 'cause I'm fragile. When I thought that I was strong. But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone. [Chorus] I live here on my knees as I try to make you see that you're everything I think I need here on the ground. But you're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go. The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me down. You're keeping me down, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah You're on to me, on to me, and all over... Something always brings me back to you. It never takes too long.

Long Day

MATCHBOX 20 "Yourself Or Someone Like You"
It's sitting by the overcoat, The second shelf, the note she wrote That I can't bring myself to throw away And also Reach she said for no one else but you, Cuz you won't turn away When someone else is gone I'm sorry 'bout the attitude I need to give when I'm with you But no one else would take this shit from me And I'm so Terrified of no one else but me I'm here all the time I won't go away It's me, yeah I can't get myself to go away It's me, and I can't get myself to go away Oh God I shouldn't feel this way [chorus] Reach down your hand in your pocket Pull out some hope for me It's been a long day, always ain't that right And no Lord your hand won't stop it Just keep you trembling It's been a long day, always ain't that right Well I'm surprised that you'd believe In any thing that comes from me I didn't hear from you or from someone else And you're so Set in life man, a pisser they're waiting Too damn bad you get so far so fast So what, so long (chorus) It's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go away It's me, yeah and I can't get myself to go away Oh God I shouldn't feel this way [chorus]

Long Way Down

JAMES OTTO "Days Of Our Lives"
Sittin' in the seat of my old Olds Pretty city lights down far below Sittin' there soakin' up all of the heat of the fire You slide a little closer and whisper in my ear Never even get around to openin' those beers Bein' here with you girl, nothing could get me no higher [Chorus:] It's a long way down Baby, hold on to me Never let me touch the ground It's a long way down Scared i'm gonna fall without your lovin' arms around Well, love for you is such a natural thing You were born to spread those angel wings Every time you touch me, swear I feel light as a feather But it seems like every other corner I turn There's another busted heart that's crashed and burned Baby, just remember every time you take me to heaven [Chorus] So, tell me once again how high we're gonna go Take me far away from the world below We could be the few that make it all the way together 'Cause I could start this car and drive back into town Land us both safe on solid ground But after tonight, girl, you're gonna have to love me forever 'Cause it's a long way down Baby, hold on to me Never let me touch the ground Yeah it's a long, long way down Scared I'm gonna fall without your lovin' arms around Yeah yeah yeah... Yeah yeah, take me higher Take me higher Take me higher, yeah...

Steven

JAKE MILLER "The Road Less Traveled"
Yeah, look Let me tell you about a kid named Steven He's slowly running out of things to believe in Every couple of months his mom leaves him, for no good reason his step-dad beats him Not too many friends, only ever had a few of them, but recently they don't want anything to do with him Always eating lunch in the bathroom stall, he just wants to feel normal and be cool again, yeah Always feeling like the outcast, he's been going crazy ever since his dad passed He needs guidance and advice but instead he only has breakdowns and flashbacks of the car crash uh It's been getting harder everyday, if he was still around everything would be OK 'Cause his dad was always the light at the end of the tunnel, but now that same damn tunnel is looking dark and grey He keeps quiet in the back of the class and when the bell rings Steven hurries home fast scared to death the other kids will kick his ass on the long walk home 'Cause its happened in the past so He's getting used to the black eyes and fat lips but all he's got is a fake smile and cut wrists Wishin' he could walk right up to them and show them the scars and say look you're the reason that I've done this Maybe they would finally understand and go back to how it was before it all began But he's just a little different so they taunt him and they beat him Yeah it's all just fun and games, they don't give a damn, yeah His older brother ain't around, in and out of jail, hanging with the wrong crowd He's been doing coke, smoking weed, getting drunk all his life he's a shame no, he's not too proud Now his habits are rubbing off on his little bro yeah, but guess what? Little did he know that every time he did a line, every time he lit a joint, every time he took a shot he would set the mode, So Steven's sitting in his room getting high now Doors locked, music up, with his lights out He just takes another toke til his room fills with smoke 5-6-7 hours til he knocks out Now he started stealing pills from his mom 8-9-10 at a time and now they're gone and maybe for a moment all his problems seem to fade, but the high fades too after not too long and that's when it really sinks in and that's when it hits him that these god damn drugs won't fix him Curled up on the floor, can't take it anymore Now he's talking to God 'cause he's the only one that gets him On his knees, looking up, can't stop crying "God I know we haven't talked in a long time but this time I really need you. Please God help me, say something just give me a sign, because now I'm falling apart and I don't think that I can do it. Please God, give me the strength to pull through it. Tell me, Should I give up? I could end it all right now. I just don't know if I'm brave enough to do it. 'Cause there's gotta be a better way than suicide. Try to wait it out, give it time, you'll be fine. But it's been so long and I still haven't been able to get rid of all the thoughts that I feel inside. So sick, so angry, so mad and to top it off no one even knows that" That's when he stood up, wiped his tears, walked over to his desk and got a pen and a notepad He just couldn't see it getting any better So on a cold dark night in December, Steven knew exactly what he had to do But first he sat down and wrote a couple letters One to his step-dad, one to his mother, couple to the kids at school, one to his brother Bringing them the pain that they once brought him tear drops on the paper one after another Yeah, I hope that you all feel guilty. 'Cause I'm broken now and you can't heal me And now you're all an accomplice in murder each and every one of you has chipped in to kill me So the reason that I'm writing you this evening, is to say goodbye and to tell you that I'm leaving But don't hold your breath 'cause I ain't never coming back Sincerely yours, Steven

Reason To Cry

LUCINDA WILLIAMS "Essence"
Once in awhile we might pass on the street We nod and we smile and we shuffle our feet Making small talk standing face to face Hands in our pockets 'cause we feel so out of place Our paths may cross again in some crowded bar We feel a little lost 'cause we've drifted away so far Hoping to find the right words to say We joke a little and then go on our way Refrain: We are so out of touch, yeah We are so out of touch, yeah La, la, la . . . We speak in the past tense to talk about the weather Half broken sentences we try to piece together I ask about an old friend that we both used to know You said you heard he took his life about five years ago We may pass each other on the interstate We honk and corss over the other lane Everybody's going somewhere, everybody's inside hundreds of cars, hundreds of private lives Refrain: We are so out of touch, yeah We are so out of touch, yeah La, la, la . . .
