Gravity Lyrics

This innocent idolatry
Not letting You in too deep
Because who knows if You can handle me

This innocent idolatry
I thought it made You proud of me
To keep my tears back behind my eyes

When did I decide
I’m not allowed to cry

Positivity can’t split these seas
And all my optimism won’t set this captive free
I need a King who hung on Calvary
I’ll always need a God who feels deeply
I need a God who knows the, the gravity

This innocent idolatry
I made You somehow just like me
Unable to sit in the suffering

This innocent idolatry
Movin’ too fast past my grief
When You are acquainted with what I’m carrying

When did I decide
I’m not allowed to cry

Positivity can’t split these seas
And all my optimism won’t set this captive free
I need a King who hung on Calvary
I’ll always need a God who feels deeply
I need a God who knows the gravity

Don’t let this truth be lost on me
My God He feels the gravity of everything

Gravity (Song Story) - Kristene DiMarco feat. kalley

I had something rolling around in my head about making God smaller than He is especially in the areas of our pain, and I had this line like this, it's like innocent idolatry it's like I didn't know God like I thought. I thought you were like me, I thought I made you somehow this way, that you're unable to to feel what I feel, or you're somehow unable to sit with me in it, or you just expect me to get up get out of here and stop sitting and stop feeling. This is how we flashed out the actual idea of positivity being of becoming like this idol and missing the God who knows the gravity, because we're full so we think that He's the God of good feelings but He's also the God of the bad days.

Kalley: I don't even think it started by a song like I think we were talk I think we were processing and like truly I mean christine and I have been friends for like 10 11 years something like that, and just like how sweet to have a relationship where you can like kind of approach a sensitive topic like this and the repentance of like no, I really saw the lord like that I really operated like that and then for life to happen alongside people, so you understood we understood each other and kind of processing this isn't just a concept for a song. This is something really walking out and I think like feeling the fruit friendship in that way is really profound like me going through pain, loss, grief everything that that comes along with and knowing I don't have a friend like christine who's gonna like throw nice sayings on top of it, who's uncomfortable with my pain I have a friend who is sitting with me in it.

Having that demonstration of like that is who jesus is and that's who i'm finding in my friend made it like such a natural thing to write a song like this because you've demonstrated learning to do that with me. I think it's that thing of I don't want to make an idol of the good days when you are so present in the hard ones.
