Lyrically, the song describes the whirlwind of emotions many people experience when they question their perspective on life. The first lines of the song, “Finding my place on Earth is a little like how it turns/ For all it might be worth/ We let it happen, and I’m feeling the hurt,” describes how this is an inevitable process that can lead to a lot of pain. For “Gravity Find Us & Bring Us In,” specifically, the last stanza of the song reveals what caused this shift in perception, as Calnin sings, “Well, there won’t be another stage/ Yeah we gave it everything/ I’m gonna miss your face/ Time to go our separate ways/ Yeah, time to accept you didn’t want to stay.” Although many situations can cause these perception shifts, the ending of a relationship is a common situation in which this occurs.
