Sara Bareilles - Gravity chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Dm7#5 is a difficult chord to play. I substitute the following two options:

1         0
1         3
0   and   3
0         3
1         3
1         0

For more: m7#5 is around halfway down the menu.


Intro: I play D (7th fret) and then G (open) on G string to open, before chords. 
It's what she plays on piano.

Cmaj7 Fmaj7

Verses I and II:

Dm7                        G7
Something always brings me back to you
Cmaj7    C  Cmaj7     Fmaj7
It never    takes too long
Dm7              G7
No matter what I say or do
Cmaj7            C            Cmaj7      Fmaj7  Cmaj7 Fmaj7
I still feel you here til the moment I'm gone

Dm7                 G7
You hold me without touch
Cmaj7  C    Cmaj7      Fmaj7
   You keep me without chains
Dm7                        G7
I never wanted anything so much
        Cmaj7         C            Cmaj7     Fmaj7  Cmaj7 Fmaj7
Than to drown in your love and not feel your rain


       Dm7            G7
Set me free, leave me be
                Cmaj7        Em               Am7
I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity
       Dm7       G7
Here I am, and I stand
   Cmaj7 Em            Am7
So tall, just like I'm supposed to be
    Dm7                     Dm7#5
But you're onto me, and all over me

Verse III:

Dm7                    G7
You loved me cause I'm fragile
    Cmaj7 C       Cmaj7 Fmaj7
And I     thought I was strong
Dm7                G7
You touch me for a little while
    Cmaj7  C       Cmaj7       Fmaj7
And all my fragile strength is gone


...and all over me...


  F         G                Cmaj7           Fmaj7
I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
            F           G             Cmaj7       Fmaj7
That you're everything I think I need here on the ground
F                  G                        Cmaj7         Fmaj7
But you're neither friend nor foe, though I can't seem to let you go
F                  G               Em   Am7
The one thing that I still know is that you're keeping me
(Dm7          G7)
Cmaj7         Am7
          Dm7    G7
Keeping me down
Cmaj7               Am7
yeah yeah yeah yeah
       Dm7                        Dm7#5
you're onto me you're onto me and all over...


Dm7                        G7
Something always brings me back to you
Cmaj7    C  Cmaj7     Fmaj7
It never    takes too long

Cmaj7 Fmaj7
Cmaj7 Fmaj7

For an optional finish, to match how the chords go an octave up on piano, I do this:

 x-- x
 x-- x


The bridge contains a progression of several chords simultaneously to add drama. I 
picked the ones that worked best with the melody, the ones closest to what's on 
piano, and ignored the string part as best I could.
