Gravity - Rickie Lee Jones

    There are wounds that stir up the force of gravity
    A cold that will wipe the hope from your eyes
    Young girl standing underneath the "L" train
    Standing there, watching the trains go by ...
    You think that nobody knows where you are, girl
    You think that nobody knows how this feels
    Alone, in a world of your own
    There you are girl
    The small things float
    To the top of gravity
    I'm telling you where it is

    We walk in easy snakes
    Through the roulette rattling of the ethyl
    And now the arson smell of moon
    Polishes a newsstand
    They empty the gas can
    The watch the fire
    If there are three girls running
    There are three girls running nowhere
    From remedies
    That you call random
    We call by name
    And ask them to explain why

    Oh, no I heard somebody
    Hush up
    Don't say nothing
    I thought I heard someone
    Well we walk when we want to go
    Nobody's gonna be there
    Seen somebody, somebody
    Be quiet
    Nobody's there ...

    I could not say no to the light of my desire
    I'm not asking so much
    But you roll-call the passion
    His lips ?
    His back ?
    His face?
    No, no, no
    I'm not asking so much!
    I try to imagine another planet, another sun
    Where I don't look like me
    And everything I do matters
    Where you are, girl
    In your green paint
    With a pin to pull
    At the fingertips of gravity
    I'm telling you where it is
