Gravity Lyrics

When the apple falls from the tree,
It's gravity
When the ground holds on to me,
It's gravity
When the apple falls from the tree,
It's gravity
When the ground holds on to me,
It's gravity

Gravity is a friend of mine
It helps me get around
When I've got to get to class
Or somewhere fast
It sure does help to have your feet on the ground
When the Earth's where you should be,
You need gravity

When the moon pulls on the sea,
It's gravity
All the stars and galaxies,
Formed by gravity
And even you and me,
Exert gravity
Though it's hard for us to see,
We need gravity

If it wasn't for gravity,
We might be floating round in space
I'd float right past and say how do you do?
What a fine day to be floating with you!
When the Earth's where you should be,
You need gravity

If gravity had never been here,
There never would've been an atmosphere
The sun wouldn't be a ball of gas
That pulls us into orbit, cause we have mass
It helps the planet stay on course,
It's a part of life
It's a fundamental force

It's gravity...

When light falls into a black hole,
That's when you don't know
If you're gonna eat
Your spaghetti on the ceiling

Gravity (Full Version) - Emmy the Great
