well I am not a scientist (at all) but hopefully this can help.

Objects are attracted to other objects. now this is much more complex than that but I neither have the technical knowledge or time to truly explain all that. So because particles are attracted to each other the more mass an object has the more it pulls or attracts other objects, we call this force gravity. Objects such as planets that are orbiting other things (typically stars due to their massive size) are in a place where the force of gravity is not allowing them to escape but not entirely pulling them in.

I hope I answered the question.
