  • 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
    And now I'm trying to get back
    Before the cool done run out
    I'll be giving it my best-est
    And nothing's going to 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 are 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

    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 been 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 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 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, this is our fate, I'm yours

  • Jason Junioress from SeoulAfter all those 12 years, I still love this so much. I had to analyze myself and this music to find out why it is so long-lived.

    "I'm yours" was much hotter in Sweden, Norway, Portugal, OZ and NZ. These are laid-back, take-it-easy cultures and welfare states. Even in Seoul, Korea, I noticed those from a more affluent family tend to love this music.

    So it is obvious the happy, sanguine feel throughout the whole melody must have made this survive so long. Most hot music I got easily bored at only after a couple of weeks; this one is shocking.

    I never feel sick and tired of the melody. Especially whenever I drive along the scenic upper Han riverside road, a meandering one through woods and huge reservoirs and dams till the city of lakes, Chun cheon, this music makes me relive my life.

    12 years ago, I was driving alone. 10 years ago, I was driving with my girl friend. 8 years ago I was doing it with my bride. Now I am doing it with my 7 year old boy and 1 year old girl.

    Gosh~... thank you so much, Jason Mraz. Although I still can't properly pronounce his surname, I feel like he molded my life to the tune and lyrics.

    I am writing this, with my car to a short halt at a lakeside near Chun-cheon all over again.
  • Elimy from :o, United KingdomI've loved this song for such a long time, It's so special to me, and last year it became even more special to me, I never thought it would be possible but it happened.

    I met my boyfriend for the first time after 7 months of dating and during that week I stayed at his Jason Mraz came on the radio, It was so magical to be sitting next to him in a car holding his hand with our song playing, that was the second best moment ever, after meeting him for the first time of course :3

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI hate this song, can't believe it's so freakin' popular.
  • Howie from Bristol, Ct., CtI heard this song for the first time a few weeks ago on "American Idol". I can't get the tune out of my head. I love this song so much that I learned it, sang it, and played it on my guitar for the seniors at my last senior center gig. They loved it as well!!! You Rock Jason Mraz
  • Shannon from Hamilton, OhBy "checking my tounge in the mirror", he means to see if he's sick. I'm not really sure where or when this... "wives tale"?, I suppose, started, but supposedly, if your tounge is discolored, it means you are sick. Something along those lines... haha.
  • Summa from Northeast , OkOh, and the rason it took so long to hit #1 is because it's a song that grows on you for sure. I was sick of it the first couple times I heard it, then I saw the video and was slightly obsessed.
  • Summa from Northeast , Ok"I've been spendin' way too long checkin' my tongue in the mirror, and bendin over backwards just to try to see it clearer, but my beath fogged up the glass- so I drew a new face & I laughed."

    that refers to not taking one's self too seriously, worrying about what will happen or fixating on yourself. The next line explains it:

    "I guess what I be sayin is there ain't no better reason to rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons."
  • Nyasia from Baltimore, Mdomg!!! lol i learled this song in like... a day lol
  • Tayluur from Binghamton, NyThis song is so catchy... I really used to hate it, but once it got stuck in my head... oh man. This song rocks.
  • Trina from New York, NyWhat does "checking my tongue in the mirror" mean? Is it something about oral cancer?
  • Duane from Oak Harbor, WaHow can you not sing along with this one? Simple in its music...honest, not overdone in someone's mixing studio. Super clear vocals!

  • Jessie from Saldotna, AkThis song is one of those songs that make you want to just sing along and it also tell a story about our lives.
