Song of the Day: Gravity Fails – Bottle Rockets

Todays song of the day is Gravity Fails by The Bottle Rockets. I tried to find anĀ acousticĀ version of the song, but truthfully I didn’t spend all that much time searching. Never having owned any early Bottle Rockets albums I just heard this song for the first time on the Not So Loud live compilation released last year, which serves as a greatest hits package for those of us who missed a lot of their earlier recordings.

Look at me, I’m Mr. Spaceman
Out of control again
Stumblin’ over words again
And finished before I even begin

When gravity fails and I’m falling down
Glued to the ceiling, spinning around
Yeah, that’s when I’m counting on you

Callin’ you my better half
Was always good for a laugh
But it’s not always such a laugh
When I think that you’re not coming back

When gravity fails and I’m falling down
Glued to the ceiling, spinning around
Yeah, that’s when I’m counting on you

I know I’m asking for too much
And I know I’m always saying stuff
And I mess up so much stuff and
Sticking with the fool is tough

But baby, I’m sayin’, please, please, please
Down on my baby blue, blue jeans
Maybe it’s something in my jeans
Maybe it’s something in my genes

When gravity fails and I’m falling down
Glued to teh ceiling, spinning around
Yeah, that’s when I’m counting on
That’s when I’m counting on
Yeah, that’s when I’m counting on you
