Lyrics

Gravity (Vincent in Reverse)

I thought of you and your starry nights​​​​
And how it feels when you can do no right​​​
The world a riddle never made any sense ​​​
You were a wrecking ball when you tore in ​​​

You gave us gravity and a hand to hold​​
Gravity, the flush of ink-black crows​​

People cage what they won’t set free ​​​​
Some souls don’t have the time of luxury​​​
It hurts like sorrow in a hopeless fight ​​​​
You gave up one too many ghosts in your life​​​

But you gave us gravity and a hand to hold​​
Gravity, the flush of ink-black crows​

God have mercy on despondent men ​​​​
In those moments when we breathe crows in​​​
We’re not immune, and never cypress strong ​​​
No heart was ever meant to beat alone​​​​

Gravity, it had to be, gravity​​​​​

Gravity and a steady hand to hold​​​
So much gravity, the flush of ink-black crows

Hurts like sorrow and it seems so far
Across an ocean dying from a broken heart
Hurts like sorrow and it stings like wind
I want to know if hope is wasted on men
Hurts like sorrow and it burns like sun
Don't you know you are a beautiful one
Hurts like sorrow and it sings like wind
I want to be there when your ship comes in
I want to be there when your ship comes in
