Rated Ours

Until I hear otherwise:  Song & Lyrics by Jason Mraz

 

You could be the song in my silent movie
It's you who put emotion in my pictures
It's starting right now
I can hear the projector

Don't let the trailer be better than the movie
I plan on staying 'till the end
Dim the lights and recite your lines to me
Don't let it be a short film

You could be the star
you are brighter than the spotlight
Who wouldn't cast you in the role
You got the part auditioning for my heart
You had be at hello

The orchestra rises up
Please don't let our scenes get cut
This is where we kiss and fall in love

So don't let the trailer be better than the movie
Don't let it have too many twists
You don't need no camera tricks
you have you're own special effects
and that affection keeps me hanging in suspense

Quiet on the set, are you ready for your close-up
Your a natural on the screen
With your eyes in stop motion, put my life into focus
You're the darling of the critics but this movie's just for me

The orchestra rises up
Please don't let our scenes get cut
This is where ride off in the sun

The orchestra rises up
This is what I'm dreaming of
Let's make everyone believe in love
Let's make everyone believe in love

This movie is rated ours.

I've Never Known You

 Until I hear otherwise:  Song & Lyrics by Jason Mraz

 

Tell me a secret, tell me anything,
Whats your weapon, whats your middle name,
What do you believe in, whats your animal, are you a cat or a dog person,
Whats your outlook, whats your favourite saying,
Hey maybe you laugh, maybe you laugh a lot,
And maybe you started, but you somehow quit the part,
Well you may be a hippy, and a democrat, yeah I remember that, I think,
And you might like wine, but your not the type, who likes to drink,

What made me, forget everything I know,
All my beliefs, replaced by scenarios,
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo,
On invisible mics, wired into my mind,
So I would like, another look inside you,
Yes I would love the chance to love you,
Like I’ve never known you.

Yeah I may be sleepin, on the telephone,
And maybe your dreamin’, of an Anglophone with a crooked smile,
And maybe your profile, boasts a brand new nose,
And maybe your new job, it requires that you cannot wear any clothes,

What made me, forget everything I know,
All my beliefs, replaced by scenario,
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo,
On invisible mics, wired into my mind,

So I would like, another look inside you,
Yes I would love the chance to love you,
Like I’ve never known you
 
Maybe your favourite colour is brown,
And maybe your crying, and your not sure why,
Maybe your livin’ in a whole new town,
And maybe your back with your old boyfriend and your busy going down,
 
What made me, forget everything,
All my beliefs, are my memories,
All the episodes viewed, especially the ones that hurt,
And even the few that made me laugh,
Well I can’t get them back,
So I am asking, for some more of you now,
Yes I would love the chance to love you,
I would love to love you!

What made me, forget everything I know,
All my beliefs, replaced by scenarios,
Of unintelligent life, echoing in stereo,
On invisible mics, wired into my mind,
So I would like, another look inside you,
Yes I would love the chance to love you,
Like I’ve never known you,

I would, I would, I would love to look inside of you,
I would, I would, I would love to look inside of you,
I would!, I would!, I would love to look inside of you,
I would!, I would!, I would love to look inside of you

I'm coming over tonight, just to say hi

Frank D. Fixer

Frank D. Fixer was a handyman
He could handle everything; he was my granddad
He grew his own food and fixed his own car
I watched it all happen in our backyard
He'd reinvent the part to fix the broken home
He restored the heart

I wish I was a fixer
I would fix you up inside
I would build you a town if the world fell down
I wish I was that guy

If Frank D. Fixer were alive today
Well he may laugh at me and he may have a lot to say
Well he might ask that I keep working for the family
To keep the bills all paid and be his protégé
What happened to the ground right where we are?
What happened to the family farm?

I wish I was a fixer
I would fix you up inside
I would build you a town if the world fell down
I wish I was that guy

Every evening breaking bread
He showed us who a real man is
No matter what my grandma says
He would never lose his head

I wish I was a fixer
I would fix you up inside
I would build you a town if the world fell down
I wish I was that guy

I wish I was a farmer
I would grow you a Garden of Eden
I would bless the family with the gifts that granddad handed me
How wonderful that would be
Baby I'll make that guy be me

You Fuckin' Did It

 You fuckin' did it
you really did it yeah
you really did it
you really did it

you really did it
you really did it yeah
you really did it
you really did it

all those who are hangin' round the water cooler
will never believe how you tackled the thousand puzzle pieces
and you could see it before we completed it
before we made it whole
how you put it all together with a blindfold

you're like a long game token that keeps the game goin'
but your claim to fame is how you like to lay low
out of the lime light
which can hurt your eyes

if you're not careful you'll become another devil in disguise

but you watch your back
you watch your back
you're growing eyes in the back of your head
to prevent another sneak attack
sneak attack
you must be keepin' secret weapons in your fanny pack

you're like my laughing gas
you got the cat to dance
you're like Lance on a mountain in the tour de France
you got a wing span spanning the globe
you got gold
and you're teaching us to let go

you're a wise old owl when you're the cat's meow
if this were twelfth grade you'd be my cap and gown
if this were India then you'd be a sacred cow
and I'd bow down to you

so grateful to the gods for making you

CHORUS

you'll be standing up for the equal right of the American people
and you'll be meeting all the influential seekers with a similar dream
you've got a front seat saved that's emblazed with your name
and a super hero cape on

you see the future as a sky full of possibility
with a spryness of mind and a psychic ability
you probably won't die at the hands of an enemy
and not in a den of inequity

You're not the average Joe
you're not the average Jane
you're not above or below
but you're never just plain
you never take no personally
and any time you get stopped you try another way

could we settle for a kiss without a cease and desist
if they ask we won't tell 'cause we're activists
i am that I am and you are that you are
and we're all that is

how p-e-r-f-e-c-t your a-t-t-i-t-u-d-e be

CHORUS

SKATING

When you circumnavigating the turntable call and attracts
like you be jumpin' in the water you be makin' a splash
you be keepin' your heart beat going
and keepin' the harmony going

well there's an awful lot of music styles you could play
well there's an awful lot of tastes
an awful lot of dates you could be on
you be keepin' your back bone strong
and be keepin' the trombone blowin'

well every friend of mine will give each other high-fives
when your beautiful mind is to your own devices
you do what you like and you always like what you try

you touch me like an iPhone application
move me like a smooth jazz music station
doin' what you do in the way that you choose to do them
oh my god

you're quick to be so quotable
damn you got a way with words
you got a magical handshake for saving the earth
you are a generous man
you are so awesome it hurts

and you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e

CHORUS

you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e

you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-o-m-e
you are a-w-e-s-oooo  ME!                                                                                     (an AWE-SO-MRAZ-ING Song!)

What Would Love Do

It's nice to meet you. No, I'm not from outer space
but I'd like to take you, to a higher place,
where we won't ever have to leave the ground.
Just ask what love would do now.

If it's got you thinking about a change of scenery
try letting go of what it was or how things ought to be
and ask what love would do now,
Just ask what love would do now.

If you care to join me oh when you shake my hand,
do not let go and soon you'll understand
what it means to have a friend beside you,
who's there to remind you that love is what you are right now.

Ask what would love do,
what would love do,
what would love do now.
What would love do now.
What would love do now.

Ask what would love do,
what would love do,
what would love do now.
What would love do now.
What would love do now.
Oh, what would love do now.
Oh, Love would love to love you now.
