Words by jason mraz & ariel quirolo
Music by jason mraz

Well I guess I'll treat her right
I guess I'll treat her right more this time
I'll try not to relytry not to rely on the perfect line
Well I see no boundaries
Except for the ones I'm in
And I don't expect you to overcome them
For that's my job description
In a world of players and private eyes
Unless you realize this
There's a whole lot you could miss
Do you know which one I am?
I am the cigarette smoking man
Once an hour I light the flower
And burn baby burn
When is it your turn? Lord tell me when the sun goes down
Cause I feel much better then anyway
Well I see much better then anyway
Well I feel exposed
Although I feel at home
Dressed as a black plastic rose
All flowing head shoulders knees and toes

We dance, we dance, we play,
We rant and rave
We dance, we dance, we play,
We rant and rave

Oh this childlike wildlife is flooring me
Oh this childlike wildlife is flooring me

Bap paa daa

Early in the morning
Late in the evening, evening
We kinda get delirious
Breaking from the seriousness
I try not to get disoriented
Having chewed too many up on my side
Is it any wonder how I miss your smile
Is it any wonder oh
Is it any wonder oh well
Is it any wonder how I write
Page's layered upon pages

Wish to no one else but me can be accounted for
For this moments sake
I do not become me
For path tunnels or straightaways
I do not watch as often as I should
So instead I sketch my life
A comfortable creature
Slow and beautifully
Slow and beautifully

Oh the smell and tastes of the past nights
Well they're still locked up in my gentle jaw

Not that I am wanting them to go
Just that they are.. Oh
And I'm very much aware
The madness of slow motion as you move your legs to walk
I'm very much aware
Of this madness when you talk

Oh this childlike wildlife is flooring me
Oh this childlike wildlife is flooring me

Bap paa daa

We dance, we play ah
Oh lord we rant and rave
We dance and we play always
We dance, we play ah
Oh lord we rant and rave
We dance and we play always
