Words & music by jason mraz

Bright lights, big city

Was quite extraordinary.

The drive was pretty.

I was in perfect company.

The love of a lifetime,

Since we were elementary friends;

The one with the bright eyes..



Why canÕt I be optimistic?

I tried to find the logic logically.

I had a dream and I could not shake it.

I was standing up there naked.



ThereÕs fear in the truth at hand, frozen I forgot to understand

The live keep living; growing older more into a man..

And I let her grow away from me.



Love.. love is not pretending.

Time.. time was meant for mending

Memories into all is satisfactory,

Healthy smiles fill the page the day we spent in miles.

And I let her drive away from me.



The one with the bright eyes

Laughed her way inside this music box;

Stored away in the corner of my heart. And I let her get away from meÉ

But IÕll never take that day away from me.
