Jason Mraz – Details In The Fabric lyrics

(Feat. James Morrison)

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
If it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your own name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine
Everything will be fine
Mmmhmm

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine
Everything

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing.

Yeah everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Everything

Hold your own
And know your name
And go your own way

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine?

Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

    The meaning of the song is a friend trying to comfort another. Everyone goes through hard times, whether it be a breakup, loss of a loved one or anything and sometimes you just want to lay in bed forever and never wake up. It takes a lot of courage to get back up and start over after a tragedy but its what is best. When Jason says "If its a broken part, replace it. If its a broken arm, then brace it. If its a broken heart, then face it." He means that you can't always push away the bad and try to forget about it, it wont ever go away, its always gonna be there. You need to confront your problems and fix them. You can't let the rough times get you down and sometimes you just have to get up and dress your self. Its like going to a funeral for a loved one, you probably do not want to say goodbye but you have to face it because this is your last chance to see them. Jason wrote this for his friend that was going through a bad breakup and in the beginning with the voice-mail that is his actual friend... the first voice-mail is him giving up and talking about how he just lost it and the second one is him saying hes going to be okay.
