Gravity


And you said you need me to let this go
Buts its who I am or am I just losing it
Cos you said jump and I went first but falling’s always been my downfall

But I know you lied when you said that you just had enough and save yourself
So hear me out
You know everybody talks
And it means nothing till you let it
And if you keep second guessing then theres only gonna be one end

But you can leave if you really want to
And you can run if you feel you have to
And I can drink if I feel I have to
I know its hard, but I can’t feel like I used to
Like I used to
Cos I used to defy gravity
Defy gravity
Goodbyes keep dragging me
Down

Passenger Seat


A very close friend of mine introduced me to this album a few years ago trying to explain to me how significant it was to them for many reasons and how amazing a story the entire thing was from start to finish.  Although I appreciated the music at the time, I didn’t quite understand it in the same way they did.  It’s grown on me over time though and I find myself listening to it a lot again lately.  This song in particular.  I don’t know how to describe why really, other than to say that it makes me feel nostalgic for something, a moment in time that I’m yet to experience.  It doesn’t make me sad, though, it gives me an overwhelming sense of comfort and peace.

I roll the window down
And then begin to breathe in
The darkest country road
And the strong scent of evergreen
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home
Then looking upwards
I strain my eyes and try
To tell the difference between shooting stars and satellites
From the passenger seat as you are driving me home
Do they collide?
I ask and you smile
With my feet on the dash
The world doesn’t matter
When you feel embarrassed then I’ll be your pride
When you need directions then I’ll be the guide
For all time
For all time
