Ohh, ohhuu... oh.

I never thought that it'd be easy
Cause we're both so distant now
And the walls are closing in on us and we're wondering how
No one has a solid answer
But just walking in the dark
And you can see the look on my face, it just tears me apart

So we fight (so we fight)
Through the hurt (through the hurt)
And we cry and cry and cry and cry
And we live (and we live)
And we learn (and we learn)
And we try and try and try and try

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle
On our way back down to earth
Down to earth (x2)
On our way back down to earth
Back down to earth (x8)

Mommy you were always somewhere
And Daddy I live out of town
So tell me how could I ever be normal somehow
You tell me this is for the best
So tell me why am I in tears?
Whoa, so far away and now I just need you here

So we fight (so we fight)
Through the hurt (through the hurt)
And we cry and cry and cry and cry
And we live (and we live)
And we learn (and we learn)
And we try and try and try and try

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle,
On our way back down to earth yeah yeah yeah
Down to earth (x2)
On our way back down to earth (on our way back down to earth)
Back down to earth (x8)

I felt so far away
From where we used to be
And now we're standing
And where do we go?
When there's no road
To get to your heart
Let's start over again

So it's up to you and it's up to me
That we meet in the middle,
On our way back down to earth
Down to earth
Down to earth (down to earth)
On our way back down to earth

I never thought that it'd be easy
Cause we're both so distant now
And the walls are closing in on us and we're wondering how,

    I love this song so much! It's just so sincere. Justin wrote it because of his parents' divorce. And it's such a beautiful song...
