Jason Mraz – The Longest Day Of The Year lyrics

I couldn't sleep last night
I laid awake
And wished you were here
I wished that I had more time
To make more mistakes
I'd make them louder
And clearer
I couldn't sleep last night
Just didn't get it right
I just couldn't sleep last night

Not a light was on
While I held this song in mind
Of you
And what you do to me
I even follow the room
I close my eyes
It didn't move
If I was only stronger
I wish that I were stronger here
Referring to my heartsongs dear*
Cuz this day is the longest of the year

Cuz I didn't sleep last night
Not for a lack of trying
I just couldn't sleep last night
By the light of day may my dreams be waiting

Time... In due time
I wont rest my thoughts of you

Could I be more lucky than I've grown to be
Just knowing that I know her
Why shouldn't I show her
The wise of getting older
Could she be more perfect in perfection her reflection is casting
And that's the last thing
I'm ever asking

Cuz I didn't sleep last night
I just didn't get it right
I just couldn't sleep last night
This is the longest day of the year
