Actually, the gravity of the Earth *does* warp space time. Although the warping is negligably small most of the time, certain applications like GPS satellites have to consider this effect.

You should note though that this difference is observer dependent though. You wouldn't notice your clock running fast unless you could compare it to someone who wasn't affected by the same gravitational warping.
