I’m back with the #1 blogging spot on Tuesday…haha right.
Song: I’m Yours Play the video at the bottom to hear the song!
Artist: Jason Mraz
Album: We sing. We dance. We steal things. (releasing May 2008)
I heard this song for the first time at the Jason Mraz concert last week and fell in love (with the song and Jason Mraz). It has a really cheerful sound and you can’t help but smile when you listen to it.
So Mraz is obviously in love with a girl, big-time in love:
Well you dawned on me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks and I’m tryin to get back
before the cool done run out I’ll be givin it my bestest
And he’s tired of waiting on her:
I won’t hesitate no more, no more
it cannot wait I’m sure
there’s no need to complicate
our time is short
this is our fate, I’m yours
Then Jason goes on to say he has been pretending to be somebody else, so much that he can’t even see his reflection:
I’ve been spendin’ way too long checkin’ my tongue in the mirror
and bendin’ over backwards just to try to see it clearer
my breath fogged up the glass
and so i drew a new face and laughed
And he’s going to finally start to be himself:
I guess what I’m a sayin’ is there ain’t no better reason
to rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
it’s what we aim to do
our name is our virtue
Jason encourages this girl just to free her mind and enjoy the moment:
look into your heart and you’ll find the love love love love
listen to the music of the moment maybe sing with me
Overall, I think Jason is saying stop trying to please everyone else. He’s been spending too much time making sure he looks perfect to this girl. He tried to change himself, doesn’t know who he is anymore (“fogged up the glass, so I drew a new face and laughed”), and that plan didn’t even work. So he’s going to start over, figure out who you is, and enjoy life.
