Somewhere Out There (4:12)

Cover of Gravity

From Gravity and 20 other releases

“Somewhere Out There” (often mistakenly called “Falling Back to Me” and “Gravity”) is a 2002 single by Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace from the album Gravity. It was the most successful single of that album and is also the most internationally successful single ever released by Our Lady Peace.

The correct title of the song is indeed “Somewhere Out There”, however the specific chorus lyrics “defying gravity” and the fact that the album is titled Gravity, led some to believe that the title of the song was “Gravity”. The song is mislabeled as such in some search engines, lyric websites, and P2P file-sharing programs.

The song is one of Our Lady Peace’s most successful singles to date, having been very popular both in Canada and the United States. Many critics praised the single, but some also criticized it for being “too mainstream”, saying that the artistic uniqueness that Our Lady Peace possessed in former albums was absent here.
In Our Lady Peace’s most recent album, A Decade, which includes many of Our Lady Peace’s greatest hits, “Somewhere Out There” is featured. The song is also featured on Now That’s What I Call Music! 11.

The Music Video shows the band performing for fans on a rounded stage lit up in a very dark studio. Most of the video focuses on a woman who climbs to the top of a speaker tower and then throws herself off, being caught by the crowd. This is also Steve Mazur’s first appearance in the band since former lead guitarist Mike Turner left to form Fair Ground.

In 2007, the beginning riff of the song was featured in a TV ad for the Fox television network.

Last time I talked to you, you were lonely and out of place
You were looking down on me lost out in space
We laid underneath the stars, strung out and feeling brave
I watched the red orange glow, I watched you float away
