What happens when you pull together a touch of Dire Straits (Sultans), a hint of Dylan, Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, & Chris Cornell, a whisper of Prine and a dose of of the Spirit—with a sprinkle of time thrown in for good measure? Gravity!

I have some talented friends scattered underneath the beautiful spacious skies, just over the majestic purple mountains, & some right in the middle of the amber waves of grain!

Your my center of Gravity
Your my Gravity nothing can hold me down
You keep me balanced
When Chips are down
And theres nothing in this world that can hol me down.
Your my Gravity
I can be found loving you loving you
Your my Gravity and you'll make ti thru
I can do anything when I have Gravity

I won't let anything drag me down
Cause I'e got something tha is stronger than me
And my balance is in my Gravity
I can always turn to you
I can always tourn to you
Oh' my Gravity you are there

( Music Interlude )

So don't let anything bring you down
cause you got Gravity to keep you above the ground
And Yes I can fly, I can fly

Nothing can bring em down,

And to keep my safe and warm thru all the storms

" Gold & Fire "

Words & Music by Dennis Massa
Performed by Dennis Massa

I walked away from this world I was given
I turned my back on the dead and started living
All my human faith was shattered
my heart was out of tune
Old enough to make a difference
Too young to go back so soon
In my room there are many
Undiscovered spoken truths

My life was unfolding like a lover I once knew
Only take what you need and never squander
Break away from this world of desire
Though the rules be unspoken require
GOLD & FIRE
To Move it along
talking about New Generation
GOLD & FIRE
Young and old
So many changes going on

In this life there are many
From this restless generation
Who seem to have fallen for the wrong situation
Only take what you need and never squander
Break away from this world of desire
Though the rules be unspoken require
GOLD & FIRE
To Move it along
talking about New Generation
GOLD & FIRE
Young and old
So many changes going on

GOLD & FIRE
To Move it along
talking about New Generation
GOLD & FIRE
Young and old
So many changes going on

" FRAGILE "

Words & Music by Dennis Massa
Performed by Dennis Massa


I want the truth for you
Do follow me
You are the light of my Life
I just wanted to let you know
Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile
The life we're given here
Whats so precious is to have you here with me
To hold you my love

If we lived here in Time
Theres no time where we live
Theres no you, me, or mine
Cause we have been here before
We have always been in our minds

( Music interlude )

I will come for you
Be prepared for the day
Until then remembering
All the dreams we shared
Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile
The life were given here
Whats so precious is to have you here with me
To hold you my love

If we lived here in Time
Theres no time where we live
Theres no you, me, or mine
Cause we have been here before
We have always been in our minds

Cause its so precious and ever so Fragile
The life were given here
Whats so precious is to have you here with me
To hold you my love

" TRAMP IN TIME "

words & music by Dennis Massa
Performed by Dennis Massa

How long will it take
For me to break
You're beating me to death
and I lost my breath
Telling me how insensitive I was
To be just a Tramp out on the street
Needing some change
With my memory mired in the mud
For the damage done
Still remains in my Blood

Well boy this is gonna hurt
Stop your crying now
Don't you know its hurts me more than you
So, shut up and take it like a man
Forget about it man
I put it in the past
But I can't Forget
I 'm just a Tramp in the Mud
For the damage done still remains in my blood

As the years drift by
I never cry, I never cry, I never cry
Patching up the holes in my heart
I headed down the road

A TRAP IN TIME
I 'm just a Tramp out on the street
Trying to undo whats been done
But the damage still remained in my blood
Now you sit and wonder why you cry alone
With your blood stained hands
And your Ghost's that chill you to the bone
Now you realize how insensitive your were.

Well the damage remains
I give it no place in my life
For the damage done
No longer cuts me like a knife.

I'm still a TRAMP IN THE MUD
but I'm clean
And I carry no shame
Got nothing but Time and no one to blame

I 'm just a Tramp out on the street
No shoes on my feet
No Money to eat
But, Hey your'e just a Tramp like me

" Wind 7 "

(c) copyright Dennis Massa
Performed by Dennis Masa

I heard your voice in the Wind
Echoing my name once again
After I drift away, drift away
YOU returned my Echo

I can feel the blood pump thru my veins
Pushing me further from what remains
If not for you I'd go insane
Until I hear your echoing

I can believe, I can receive
The gift of love you give to me
Our self love is all in vain
Only brings us inner pain
and if I remain the same
When I go. oh, oh, oh
I'll have to pass
This way again

I am the voice within the wind
Echoes heard from within
After you drift away, drift away
and come face to face with me
You will see more clearly
Suddenly You are Free

Whispering Wind you called my name
Sending me Your Sweet Refrain
Whispering where did you go ?
Just Return My Echo

End: ( repeat and fade out )
I heard your voice in the wind
Echoing my name once again
After I drift away, drift away
you RETURNED my echo
Drift away, Drift away
You returned by Echo
Drift away Drift away fade out............

"the Great Mystery"
words & music by dennis massa
(c) copyright Dennis Massa

Across the great divide
where time does not exist
lies the Pre-historic bones
of mans violent past.
but if you have a little faith of a mustard seed
what will you sacrifice to save your
soul for what you do not need.

If i sleep on my journey
i will fall down on my knees
when there's no room in the inn
will the strangers welcome me
then i'll awaken to my saviour
walking on the sea of light
then we can hear higher vibrations
coming down from the Great Mystery.
coming down from the Great Mystery.

I now know, also, that the possibilities
of following this new will,
a life without violence.
And a new direction lies in every moment of one's life.



So if you feel like crying
No your not alone
the secret lies within you
calling you home
with a little faith you can move this mountain
freely drink the waters
from heavens holy fountain.
so don't sleep on your journey
thats the Great Mystery
if you make room in your inn
then the strangers comfort thee.
you can walk out on the waters
of life, without sinking
then you can higher vibrations
coming down from the great mystery
can you hear higher vibrations
coming down from the Great Mystery
Then you can hear higher vibrations
coming down from the Great Mystery.

"You Got Nothing On Me"
(c) words & music by Dennis Massa

1- I did it all over again,
When will I ever learn,
To just say No,
and just watch the World Turn
I tried to satisfy my needs in another,
What I could of found inside of me.

I gave you my life, I gave (up) my soul,
But I did'nt give up my heart of gold,
So take control of what really matters.
Believe in yourself, and let things go.

Cause, You got nothing on me,
That can make me stay here with you,
You got nothing on me,
That can hold me against my will.
I gave you my life for a momentary Thrill,
But I’ll never give away my heart to you.

( Musical Interlude) at 1:50

2- Never Trade all your treasures
For a Fools Gold
Returns to Dust
And the Love grows Cold.

Cause if you really have the " Spirit of God ",
You’ll see that’s your only friend.


I gave up my Life
I gave up my soul,
But I wouldn't give up my Heart for You,

I gave you my life Life,
I gave you my soul,
But I couldn't give away my heart to you.

So take control of what really matters.
Believe in yourself, and let things go.



Cause You got nothing on me,
That can make me stay here with you,
You got nothing on me,
That can hold me against my will.
I gave you my life, for a momentary Thrill,
But, I will never give away my Heart to you............

" Hidden Garden "

words and music by Dennis Massa
Performed by Dennis Massa

I reached inside for you in your hidden garden
Through your eyes they told me a story
What are you growing in your Hidden Garden
The forest whispered thru the trees
Get far away don't even go there
Cause this could be the end of Innocence for you

I fell asleep in your Hidden Garden
Like I did so many times before
Now I see that I'm weaker
I've grown weaker
So, I've got to get back to my innocence once more.

Got to get back to my river
Where the waters wash over me
Where truth, where the wind of truth blows free
Where no hidden garden can put an end of innocence for me

I fell asleep in your Hidden Garden
Like I did so many times before
Now i'm Stronger
Stronger than ever
Since I 've been back to my innocence once more
Now I'm Stronger than ever
Since I've been back to my Innocenc once more

Gravity #2 Finale
words and music by
Dennis Massa (c) 2015

Your my Gravity
Surrounding me
You keep me balanced
Suspended in my dream
Cause I've got something
Stronger than life
Separated from the colors of light
Gravity, I will always be
Loving you
Faithfully
I'm floating thru
floating thru
Floating thru the Universe with you


We live forever and never fade
We've been here before
You can't be swayed
So go ahead and Fly, ( fly fly fly )
Gravity, you saved my life

You balance me. eeh, eeh, - eeh
Your my Gravity
You lifted me up and calmed me down
You raised me up to receive my crown

Now I have something
Stronger than life
That nourishes me

I promise to be
Loving you
Faithfully

If you're the Gravity
Then I'm the Moon
Suspended in your love
Far above the clouds
I see the Universe
I see it in you
Floating thru
Floating thru
Floating thru
The Universe with you
