Did You Get My Message? ~ Jason Mraz, featuring Rachael Yamagata

Jason Mraz is an American singer-songwriter, born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Mraz’s stylistic influences include reggae, pop, rock, folk, jazz, and hip hop. Mraz released his debut album, Waiting for My Rocket to Come, which contained the hit single “The Remedy (I Won’t Worry)”, in 2002 but it was not until the release of his second album, Mr. A-Z that Mraz achieved commercial success.

Mraz is of Czech descent through his grandfather who moved to the United States from what is now the Czech Republic in 1915. His surname is Czech for “frost.” Mraz is a vegan.

He attended The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, for a short time, studying musical theater before moving to San Diego.

Mraz also owns an avocado farm in Northern San Diego County near Fallbrook.

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
