Jason Mraz – Song For A Friend

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:55 pm by LynxLee

Jason Mraz simply amazes me. This song was the last song from his previous album. It’s the longest and most probably the most inspiring song he’s ever written. Please take time to listen to his 8 minute song (extended version as the album is). The video below is the extended one and the one above is the acoustic.

There’s no price to pay
When you give and what you take,
That’s why it’s easy to thank you
You…

Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself

Climb up over the top.
Survey the state of the soul.
You’ve got to find out for yourself whether or not you’re truly trying.
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it. Take control and inevitably wind up
Find out for yourself all the strengths you have inside of you.


Acoustic


Extended (Album version)

Well you’re magic he said
But don’t let it all go to your head
Well I bet if you all had it all figured out
Then you’d never get out of bed
No doubt
All the thing’s that I’ve read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping
To be
Keep on keeping it real
Cause it keeps getting easier indeed
He’s the reason that I’m laughing
Even if there’s no one else
He said, you’ve got to love yourself

You say, you shouldn’t mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble on to
You better remember that it’s humble that you seek
You got all the skill you need,
Individuality
You got something
Call it gumption
Call it anything you want
Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself

Yes you are

There’s no price to pay
When you give and what you take,
That’s why it’s easy to thank you
You…

Let’s say take a break from the day
And get back to the old garage
Because life’s too short anyway
But at least it’s better then average
As long as you got me
And I got you
You know we’ll got a lot to go around
I’ll be your friend
Your other brother
Another love to come and comfort you
And I’ll keep reminding
If it’s the only thing I ever do
I will always love
I will always love you
Yes you
I will always, always, always, always love
I will always, always love
I will always, always love, love

Climb up over the top.
Survey the state of the soul.
You’ve got to find out for yourself whether or not you’re truly trying.
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it. Take control and inevitably wind up
Find out for yourself all the strengths you have inside of you.

Colbie Caillat – One Fine Wire

I’m balancing on one fine wire….

I try so many times
but it’s not taking me
and it seems so long ago
that I used to believe
and I’m so lost inside of my head
and crazy
but I cant get out of it
I’m just stumbling

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
but It’s frayed at both the ends
and I’m slow unraveling

Life plays so many games inside of me
and I’ve had some distant cries, following
and their entwined between the night and sun beams
I wish I were free from this pain in me

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
but it’s frayed at both the ends
and I’m slow unraveling

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire….
