The story of "Leaving" by Final Gravity

Updated: Sep 13, 2023


Leaving is the third song release from the upcoming Final Gravity album "Surviving Humanity". It is the song about when you have had enough and are ready to move on.


The construction of this song started in drummer John Chominsky's garage 7 years ago when guitarist Michael Clarke presented this crunchy sexy guitar riff to jam on. As the band jammed to the powerful guitar riff I listened and let the music infuse me. I felt infused with power and passion and it started to provoke thoughts of my life and the current situation I was in 7 years ago. I thought about my life journey as a musician, I thought out my relationships that weren't working or left me short and all the people I had business or personal relationships with that didn't appreciate how hard I work and took me for granted. I always wanted to give everyone a chance to rise above but at that time I was realizing they would learn much more if I would simply just walk away. I was angered but empowered with the realization that I deserve better and I had the power not to change them but to change what I allowed into my life. I knew my powerful value that was overlooked, it frustrated me and it seemed no one ever understood my value until I let go and am no longer there. The music I was listening to seemed like the perfect canvas to paint my message and unleash my power to let go.


The strong music fueled me with energy and I was ready to soar. It was a turning point unleashing the words I had kept locked up in my soul for so long. I not only was able to write a song but it was a time when I was ready to stand up for myself and not let anyone take advantage of me anymore. I was "Leaving" and my life started shifting and continues to shift positively.


LEAVING - Final Gravity LYRICS


How can you fear me when I look so tame?

Forever unloved forever pushed away

Why do you leave me here in all this pain?

Search for a brighter day all I find is rain

Nothing shall remain

Everything’s the same

Nothing shall remain

You're running away now always leaving me

But when I change my mind you finally see

You’ll never see the truth only when the memories bleed

You're the only love I want and a love I never wanted

I know what it means now when you float my way

It's nothing more to you than a stupid game

I fell into your web but now things have changed

I’ve found a brighter day and that's when you go away

Nothing shall remain

Everything’s the same

Nothing shall remain

You're running away now always leaving me

But when I change my mind you finally see

You’ll never feel the same only when the memories bleed

You're the only love I want and a love I never wanted

Was you, you, you oh oh ohhh

I’ve known you for way too long

To fall into your fake sweet dreams

But somehow I’m a fool for you

That hopes someday these things will change

Nothing shall remain

Everything’s the same

Nothing shall remain

'Cause everything is the same, the same, the same, oh no!

I still have a place for you every time I need

I hate the way it feels so leave me empty please

The love I had for you was a stupid dream

Now as I float away set these shackles free

Nothing shall remain

Everything’s the same

Nothing shall remain

You're running away now always leaving me

But when I change my mind you finally see

You’ll never see the truth only when the memories bleed

You're the only love I want and a love I never wanted

You're running away now always leaving me

But when I change my mind you finally see

You’ll never feel the same only when the memories bleed

You're a love I never want and the only love I wanted

Was you
