​gravity Lyrics

By Montaigne

[Verse 1: Montaigne]
Would you live in a house with me?
Plant your feet on solid ground with me?
No more reaching for the stars
Just the trees in the yard
I would give almost anything
Like my teeth or some oxygen
To be looking at you
At sunset, cooking food

[Chorus: Montaigne, Montaigne & David Byrne]
It’s hard to be religious
It’s easy to devote myself
To you
To you

[Verse 2: David Byrne]
I could live in a shack for two
A little house with a yard would do
All that striving to succeed
Here is everything I need
I have learned how to sing this song
How to cook, is the taste too strong?
As the starlight fades away
Look at this, it’s okay

[Chorus: Montaigne, Montaigne & David Byrne]
It’s hard to be religious
It’s easy to devote myself
To you
To you

[Bridge: Montaigne & David Byrne]
The stars arе indifferent
The sky always changеs
Celestial bodies
All make themselves strangers
Adventure is lovely
But I’m much too tired now
As I sleep, I imagine
A book with no pages
A story unfolding
On improvised stages
Much singing and dancing, but
Can we go home now?

[Verse 3: David Byrne]
I have travelled around the world
I have seen how the cosmos swirled
It is big, but here we are
Just as beautiful as stars

[Verse 4: Montaigne]
Would you live in a house with a garden?
Would you work on your play in the study?
Would you plant some rocket for our salads?
Would you worship gravity with me?
