McDonald, Shawn - Gravity Lyrics

The ways of this world are grabbing a hold
Won't let me go, won't let me fly by
It taken it's toll down on my soul
'Cause I know what I need in my life
Don't let me lose my sight of You
Don't let me lose my sight

I don't want to fall away from You
Gravity is pulling me on down
I don't want to fall away from You
Gravity is pulling me to the ground

This world keeps making me cry
But I'm going to try, going to try to fly, going to fly high
Don't want to give into the sin, want to stay in You 'til the end
Don't want to lose my sight of You
Don't want to lose my sight


I want to fly
Into the sky
Turn my back on this old world
Leave it all behind
This place is not my home
It's got nothing for me
Only leaves me with emptiness
And tears in my eyes

[Chorus 2x]

    I used to hear this song on KSVJ but now its longer played there.

  4. Meli Banda

    This song brings back the best memories. I gave up so many things that were meaningless in my life. Social media was one of them. Everything felt in place. I felt so blessed and thanked God every chance I got. I just couldn’t believe how blessed I felt. I recall one stormy, drizzling night I went for a run and played this song on repeat. It was a run I’ll never forget.

  30. Soul Vagabond

    That feel when you're agnostic and you read the comments (Agnostic: a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God or of anything beyond material phenomena; a person who claims neither faith nor disbelief in God.)


    I was an agnostic when I was a baby.

    MsUn PC

    Denise Mama D Landon
    God can mend you no matter how broken you feel.
    Humans can steer you in the wrong direction. God will never steer wrong.
    Give Him all your problems. He can carry every problem known to man and it will never stress Him out or say it's too much.
    Humans weren't meant to carry any stress. It can literally kill you.
    Give every problem to God. He can handle it perfectly.

  45. Jennifer Bernagozzi Blackwell

    This song speaks to me in such a large way.

    Jason Love

    Hi April,I want a strong faith. Maybe I should shut off worldly distractions like social media and negative entertainment.

    Carry U

    @Jason Love 143

    Jason Love

    @Carry U thank u mam or sir.


    Praying that you are still pressing into our King! He loves you so much and so do I. God bless you precious one.

  68. Andre Flowers

    Hi Nicky p I'm Andre. I'm feeling far from the Lord myself right now. I'm saying this because I know how you feel right now. Maybe not in the exact same circumstance but I do. So just know your not alone. One thing I'm slowly starting to realise now though is that the Lord is always with us even when we do recognize it. As long as we strive to do what's right he will always be there to protect / comfort/love/support/ and guide us. So no matter what I always try to remember that. I hope this helped. God bless

  69. Nikki P

    This is exactly how I feel like I'm falling away from him. Pray for me please. I haven't read my Bible, I work late Saturday, the closest good church is an hour away. I have to get up at seven in the morning and, I'm extra tired because I have a heart condition. Had to work during last two Bible study's. I don't know what to do. God bless you all.


    If you are still so shackled to sin that you have to make it the focus of your life to feel freedom, then you are not truly free. The beauty of grace is not having to focus on the sin anymore.

    paula garrett

    Nikki The Lord sees your heart and condition. Remember you are the church. Hold a bible study in your home if you like. I love you and trust me, I have been there too.

    Connie Navarro

    Nikki P Make the effort. It will be worth it. I guarantee it! No love like the love of Christ.

    Yes. Joel Osteen is an ear tickler. He preaches 'feel good' sermons. He never talks about sin or hell.
    He's PC. Preachers aren't supposed to be PC. He cares more about what the world thinks of him.
    He never opens his Bible. Just holds it up.
    I used to watch him but I started feeling empty afterwards.
    Just because someone prays for something doesn't mean they'll get it.
    God does answer prayers. Sometimes His answer is no.
    God sees the end to the beginning.
    Meaning what we want might not be good for us later on.
    And, Joel preaches about asking God for stuff. God's not a genie.
    And, when a person doesn't get what he prayed for, he can get discouraged and possibly turn his back on God.
    A preacher is supposed to be truthful. Let us know we're not all that.
    And, the truth hurts a lot of the time.
    Joel may not be able to get to the nitty gritty but God sure won't mince words or coddle us or try to not to hurt our feelings by being truthful.
    God/Jesus are definitely not PC.
    Jesus did call the Pharisees a brood of vipers. That was harsh but true.
    Yes, God is perfect Love. But He can't let it override His perfect Justice.

    MsUn PC

    Nikki P
    Whenever you have a day of rest, that's your Sabbath.
    But, we can rest in Jesus every day.
    God knew there would be people that would have to work on weekends.
    I'm just grateful we're no longer under the law.
    If we were, I don't think any of us would be alive today. In fact, I KNOW we'd be dead long ago.
    Thank God for Grace.
    And, you can pray a anywhere. God won't mind. :)

  70. Sentient Tent

    This was a different sort of mass than what i was expecting.

    This place is not my home
    It's got nothing for me...

  72. blessings4eva

    This song speaks to me.It is so beautiful

  73. Sandy Hileman

    One of those songs where they made all the right choices from start to finish

  75. Noemi Hooks

    GRAVITY. This song is deep. It's says out aloud what one is feeling and suffers in silence. In fear of no-one understanding them and being betrayed if you open up. Thank you Shawn for your obedience in birthing this song through your suffering and pains and all you went through. "Your Labor Is Not In Vain" I'm giving GOD the glory for HIS faithfulness over your life. And for giving us a prayer in song form. It helps me say what I'm having trouble saying. Blessings may the good Lord intrust you with many more music to come. And coming forth out of your spirit, and may HIS anointing (qualifications) rest over your life.

  76. Kat

    Every once in a while a song comes along and gets you.  This one did it for me.  Love it!

  77. susieQ 31

    I love his acoustic worship...

  78. ktmartin1996

    You know it's a great song when you break down in tears the first time you hear it and realize that you NEVER wanna fall away from God.

  79. Lenny Bisutti

    This song is SO right on how I'm feeling about my life with Christ...The words are so very true! This world is going to hell and I feel I'm slipping away. Please pray for me

    Liz Dee

    I am praying for you Lenny. Stay strong. Phillipians 4:13 

    MsUn PC

    Lenny Bisutti
    The closer the end gets, the more you'll have to stick to your faith.
    And, "We ain't seen nothing yet."
    But, just think of how wonderful it will be to finally make it to Heaven. No more pain, evil, diseases, etc. Just a perfect peace for eternity.
    Putting up with this world and hanging onto our faith is worth it to get to Heaven.
    Any suffering now is Heaven compared to what it will be like in hell.
    This life is but a vapor.
    Our minds can't fathom living forever.
    But, I don't want to think about forever while suffering in hell.
    Keep praying, ask God to help you then thank Him for helping you with whatever you need.
    Instead of asking Him over and over, just ask once. After that, thank Him. Even if it hasn't happened yet, thank Him for it.
    God responds to praise. People that complain about their problems, beg for stuff or want God to pity them, will definitely not get God's attention.
    Not saying you do this.
    I'm just pointing these things out.

  80. Lee Chips
