Lyrics:

(Verse 1)
The ways of this world are grabbing a hold
Wonít let me go, wonít let me fly by
It takes itís toll down on my soul
ĎCause I know what I need in my life
Donít let me lose my sight of You
Donít let me lose my sight

(Chorus)
I donít want to fall away from You
Gravity is pulling me on down
I donít want to fall away from You
Gravity is pulling me to the ground

(Verse 2)
This world keeps making me cry
But Iím going to try, going to try to fly, going to fly high
Donít want to give into the sin, want to stay in You Ďtil the end
Donít want to lose my sight of You
Donít want to lose my sight

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