"After an Afternoon" as written by and Jason Thomas Mraz Ariel Quirolo....
I bare my windowed self untamed and untrained
Dreams that hardly touch our complexions truest faults
If room enough for both my drowsy spirit shall fall
Bold waves tumble to the season of my heart
Where you have offered my faith and my trust
Until all is lost into the beauty of the day.

But there is something in the way you laugh
That makes me feel like a child
Aspects of life they confuse me
You and your thesis amuse me.

After an afternoon with you
And your rich brown eyes
Your lips and your dark hair
Elbows and exposed knees tossing toward the ceiling
After an afternoon.

Face to palm
Tear to tear
Mouth to tongue
Heart to ground
I am in love.

    But there's something in the way you laugh

    General Commenti think hes afraid to be with someone, he thinks its impossible that she would ever like him, and it makes him upset, he goes for her, gets her, but she offends him..but he still likes her because theres something about her that brings back his childhood...but then their together and loving each other but i dont get that because...well i just dont get this can someone explain?

    General Comment"i bare my windowed seld untamed and untrained"
    this is jason revealing his true self to the woman he is singing to, the side of him he usually hides.

    "Bold waves tumble to the season of my heart
    Where you have offended my faith and my trust "
    describing the heaviness it put on his heart when
    she betrayed him.
    the rest of the song describes why he still has feelings for her even sfter she hurt him. he knows shes not right for him but he doesnt care and they get back together. watya recon?
