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 done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

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 babay sing with me
I love peace for melody
And It’s our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love 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

Scooch 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 laughed
I guess what I’m be saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity 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 sure

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
Please don’t, please don’t, please don’t
There’s no need to complicate
Cause our time is short
This oh this this is out fate, I’m yours!

Did You Get My Message?

[flv]http://djallyn.org/media/jason-mraz-did-you-get-my-message.flv[/flv]

Did you get my message, the one I left
While I was trying to condense everything that I meant
In a minute or less when I called to confess
And make all of my stresses go bye-bye

Did you get my message, you didn’t I guess
‘cuz if you did you would have called me with your sweet intent
and we could give it a rest
‘stead of beating my breast
making all of the pressure go sky-high

Do you ever wonder what happens to the words that we send
Do they bend, do they break from the flight that they take
And come back together again with a whole new meaning
In a brand new sense, completely unrelated to the one I sent

Did you get my message, oooh oooh ooooh
Did you get my message
Did you get my message, yeah, oooh oooh ooooh hooo

Uh oh, where did it go, must have bypassed your phone
And flown right outta the window
ooh well, how can I tell?
Shoulda called the operator maybe she know the info
But whether or not if my message you got was too much or a lot to reply
Why not try this for a fact
Should you ever come back I’d relax and be relieved
of all my panic attacks

Ahh hooo oooh, Ahh hooo oooh,
Did you get my message, oooh oooh ooooh
Did you get my message,
Did you, Did you now
Did you get my message, yeah oooh oooh ooooh hooo

Did you get my message, the one I left
While I was trying to condense
everything that I meant
Now the moment is passed
Not much sand in the ‘glass and I’m standing to lose my mind
Do you ever wonder what happens to the words that we send
Do they bend, do they break from the flight that they take
And come back together again with a whole new meaning
To the matter of our love’s defense,
at least be sympathetic to the time I spent

Did you get my message, oooh oooh ooooh
Did you get my message,
Did you, did you, did you, did you now
Did you get my message, yeah oooh oooh ooooh hooo
Did you get my message

Rachael: no I didn’t hear a word you said

Did you get my message
no I’m not gonna believe your lies anymore
Did you get my message that I want to reconnect with you
Did you get my message

Rachael: I can hear you say your coming but I don’t hear

Why did you get the message love?
That I want to get back with you
Did you get my message love
That I want to reconnect with you
Why did you get the message love?
Did you get my message

Rachael and Mraz: That I want to reconnect with you

The Remedy

[flv]http://djallyn.org/media/the_remedy.flv[/flv]

Well I saw fireworks from the freeway
And behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
‘Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring
Now something on the surface it stings
I said something on the surface
Really kind of makes me nervous
Who says that you deserve this
And what kind of god would serve this?
We will cure this dirty old disease
Well if you gots the poison, I’ve gots the remedy

The remedy is the experience,
It is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy, is that it’s serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I said tragedy is how you’re gonna spend,
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I won’t worry my life away.
I won’t worry my life away.

Well, I heard two men talking on the radio
In a cross fire kind of new reality show
Uncovering the ways to plan the next big attack
Where they were counting down the ways to stab
The brother in the be right back after this
The unavoidable kiss, with the minty fresh
Death breath sure to outlast this catastrophe
Dance with me,
‘Cause if you gots the poison,
I’ve gots the remedy

The remedy is the experience,
This is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy, is that it’s serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I said the tragedy is how you’re gonna spend,
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I won’t worry my life away.
I won’t worry my life away.

When I fall in love,
I take my time
There’s no need to hurry when I’m making up my mind
You can turn off the sun,
but I’m still gonna shine and I’ll tell you why…

Because

The remedy is the experience,
This is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy, is that it’s serious.
This is a strange enough new play on words
I said the tragedy is how you’re gonna spend,
The rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends
When it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I won’t worry my life away…(‘Cause I won’t and I won’t and I won’t worry my life away…)
