Hopeless Gravity

When you look at me all of time stands still. 
You bring me to my knees.
I freeze. 

Can’t see anyone.
I’m staring at the sun. 

Undone.
When I’m close to you the world fades. 

There is you. Only you. 
Drawing me into your hopeless gravity. 

Let me go. let me fly. Let me run away. 
You gave me wings, now I must fly. 
Fly away, fly away, far away from your love. 
All my life, all my life, has been wanting you. 
I’d give it all, but you want none. 
Craving you, craving you, craving you all my life. 

...All of time stands still.
You bring me to my knees. 
I freeze.
Can’t see anyone.
I’m staring at the sun… 

Love falls hard on this heart 
When you speak my name. 
The sweetest voice I’ll ever know. 
Calling me, calling me, calling me to your love. 
I get lost in your eyes. You steal my breath away. 
You fill my life with saddest song. 
Haunting me, haunting me, haunting me for your love. 

Run to you.
Can’t see any other way but back to you, where I belong. 
Can’t let go and can’t sing any other song. 

Without love the sky will break 
Earth will shrink each day. 
And you’ll still be too far away. 
Living and breathing and seeing you without love. 
Let me go, let me fly, let me run away. 
You gave me wings, now I must fly. 
Fly so far, far away, far from your love. 

Run to you.
Can’t see any other way but back to you, where I belong. 
Can’t let go and can’t sing any other song. 

...Undone.
When I’m close to you the world fades. 
There is you. Only you. 
And this hopeless gravity. 

I run to you.
