I fell in love with this song when I heard it on the American dance programme ‘So you think you can dance’.

It reminded me of a great tip that really helps some students to remember vocabulary. If you are having trouble remembering a word, try associating a movement with that word. Then when you hear that word you’ll think of the movement and remember the meaning! I challenge you to choose five new pieces of vocabulary and give each one a movement. I hope this helps!

In the meantime, here’s the full version of the song. I’ve removed some of the words, all you need to do is listen and see if you can complete the song with the correct word. Good luck!

Key Words


Sara Bareilles - Gravity

Something always brings me back to you. It never takes too long. No matter what I say or do I'll still feel you here 'til the _1_. I'm gone

You hold me without touch
You keep me without _2_
I never wanted anything so much than to _3_ in your love and not feel your rain.

Set me free, leave me be. I don't want to fall another moment into your _4_
Here I am and I stand so _5_, just the way I'm supposed to be
But you're on to me and all over me.

You loved me 'cause I'm fragile
When I thought that I was _6_
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone
