Your Gravity tells the story of an Astronaut who has completed a year long mission aboard the international space station and is reflecting on the unique perspective this time has given them before returning home to earth the next day. 


For one whole year

I've not known up from down 

Or the weight of my bones

But never has the pull I feel 

To your heart left me, dear

 

For one whole year

I've looked down from the stars

Instead of up to the clouds

But never has any view

Heaven or earth, come close to you

 

Come tomorrow

I'll be on my way back home

And looking down upon your face

Come tomorrow

I'll depart the great unknown

And safely fall fast asleep

Within your arms, your gravity

 

For one whole year

I have seen 

How small we are

How great the mystery

And now I've found that all I'll ever know

is you're the truth I am living for

 

Come tomorrow

I'll be on my way back home

And looking down upon your face

Come tomorrow

I'll depart the great unknown

And safely fall fast asleep

Within your arms, your gravity
