"Make It Last"

"Gravity" is the lead single from Out of Nothing, the fourth album by English rock band Embrace. Written by Coldplay, the song was first performed live by Coldplay in 2002. Ultimately, Chris Martin gave the song to Embrace. "Gravity" peaked at #7 on the UK Singles Chart. It was released on CD format and red 7" vinyl. It later became the theme song to the TV show Mike Bassett: Manager, starring Ricky Tomlinson.

The B-side, "Wasted", started off as "Logical Love Song" and was originally conceived during the Drawn from Memory sessions.

"Gravity" was re-recorded by Coldplay in late 2005 and is included as a B-side to their single "Talk".

The songs "Too Many Times", "The Shot's Still Ringing", and "Waterfall" are featured on the B-sides compilation Dry Kids: B-Sides 1997-2005.

The song was used in Series 2 Episode 7 of Gavin and Stacey when Nessa was giving birth to "Neil The Baby".
