Jason Mraz – I'm Yours lyrics

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
Now I'm trying to get back


Before the cool dawn run out
I'll be giving it my bestest

And nothing's gonna stop me but divine intervention.
I reckon, it's again my turn
To win some or learn some
.

But I won't hesitate
No more, no more.
It cannot wait,
I'm yours
.

Well, open up your mind and see like me,
Open up your plans and damn you're free.
Look into your heart and you'll find love, love, love, love.
Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing, we're just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved

So 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
.

Do you want to come on, scootch on over closer, dear
And I will nibble your ear

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed
.

I guess what I'll be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons.
It's what we aim to do.
Our name is our virtue.

But I won't hesitate
No more, no more.
It cannot wait,
I'm yours.

Well, open up your mind and see like me,
Open up your plans and damn you're free
.
Look into your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours.
So please don't, please don't, please don't...
There's no need to complicate.
'Cause our time is short.
This oh, this oh, this is our fate.
I'm yours.

Oh, I'm yours
Oh, I'm yours
Oh, oh,
Baby, do you believe, I'm yours?
You best believe, you best believe, I'm yours.

    This song has meaning behind the words that you hear, it speaks to people, beacuse its the truth about love. Its fun to sing, listen to, and to simply just feel good after hearing it. The music in the background is peaceful and enjoyable. Some many people listen to music but never actually think about the true meaning behind the song. You may sing along with the words, but do you really know what they mean, have you ever thought about how powerful a word can be and the meaning behind it. The songs speaks of how life is so short that when you have love you don't want to waste time with simple problems or complications. Think about what you sing a read, you may be suprised to find what you have been missing out on! Love always, from maryanna.

    This song speaks about how life is wonderful despite of everything. The song has soft and relaxed melodies that make you want to explore the world. By listening to this song, you can feel the sea breeze, the birds chirping, the waves of the ocean, the waterfalls, nature itself. This song also shows the meaning of love. By loving someone, one will perceive that the world is great, like there is only good in the world. When two people are in love it seems that they view the world in the same and positive direction. Life is short, so always appreciate your everyday life. Hmmm I do love this song!

    I love this song and it is the best song, ever! I just love this song! It makes me want to dance and sing with the whole entire world! To me the meaning is this: He wants to show his girfriend he really cares and that she can "rid yourself of vanity" because he loves her so much he doesn't care what she looks like as long as she loves him, too. I love this song!

    In short, I think this song is about loving life, learning how to let go and open up your heart, and be free to enjoy life to its fullest without the stress or worries we often subject ourselves to. I think the "person" the song is addressed to is actually "life" itself. Here is my breakdown of the lyrics:

    Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
    (Hey life, you've thrown me some curve balls and kicked my butt a few times, and I've taken notice)
    I tried to be chill but you're so hot I melted
    (I tried to act cool about it, but you / life can be very intense sometimes)
    I fell right through the cracks
    And now I'm trying to get back
    (I got burned out and frustrated, but now I'm brushing myself off and getting back on my feet with a new attitude)
    Before the cool done run out
    I'll be giving it my best-est
    (Before I lose my nerve I'm going to give it another shot)
    And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
    (and I'm confident that this time nothing outside of divine intervention will stop me)
    I reckon it's again my turn,
    to win some or learn some
    (This phrase seems to be a play on the adage "you win some, you lose some". He's conveying that "failures" should be viewed as learning opportunities, so either you win (succeed) or you learn. That way every experience in life can be seen as a win / win situation)

    But I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait, I'm yours
    (There is no time like the present. I'm giving myself over to you / life)

    Well open up your mind and see like me
    (Now he's talking to the listener.... telling us to open our minds and see his view point)
    Open up your plans and damn you're free
    (Let go of what you think you should be doing with your life, and all of a sudden you're free from stress / worry!)
    Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
    (With an open heart, you can find love in all kinds of different places / relationships)
    Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
    (Don't worry about the past or the future; enjoy the present)
    We are just one big family
    And It's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved
    (Celebrate the people around you; we're all in this together and should love one another)

    [Chorus]
    So I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I'm sure
    (No time like the present to change your attitude)
    There's no need to complicate
    (It doesn't have to be complex, it's a very simple idea)
    Our time is short
    This is our fate, I'm yours
    (Life is short; so I'm giving myself over to you / life)

    I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
    And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
    (In the past I've spent too much time and effort worrying about how other people see me)
    But my breath fogged up the glass
    And so I drew a new face and I laughed
    (But I kept getting in my own way by trying to please everyone else, so now I'm just gonna do my own thing and not worry about it)
    I guess what I been saying is there ain't no better reason
    To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
    (This is his most straight forward explanation / summary of the whole song... stop worrying about what other people think, or what you think you should be doing, and just roll with it. Enjoy life at this moment.)
    It's what we aim to do
    Our name is our virtue
    (What's important is who you are as a person; your "name"... not what you look like, or what your successes are)

    But I won't hesitate no more, no more
    It cannot wait I'm yours
    (Life is short; so I'm giving myself over to you / life)

    Well open up your mind and see like me
    (Open your mind and see his view point)
    Open up your plans and damn you're free
    (Let go of what you think you should be doing with your life, and all of a sudden you're free from stress / worry!)
    Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours
    (If you can tap into the love in your heart, you will have no boundaries)
    So please don't please don't please don't
    There's no need to complicate
    (Don't try to over-complicate things)
    'Cause our time is short
    This, oh this, this is our fate, I'm yours
    (Life is short; so I'm giving myself over to you / life)
