"Little You & I" as written by Robert James Grey, Stephen James Walker, Michael Frances Conroy, Gary Frances Mcdowell and Richard Ian Brown....
you close your eyes
you say goodnight in your own special way
you rest your head and you rest your mind
and there you go

there you go so fast, so fast asleep
there you are without a care when or where
but there you are I swear without a care where it is you lay

spiraling spaces tangled up in moments of touching time
trying to find some somewhere sleeping sideways
pockets full of nothing, head exploding from the mind
too much time for dancing in our hair
sister don't be shy between little you and I

mouths in line, tears beside
and we're gonna weep in between the sleep
until we float away into broken promises
too much too hard to keep

and we would sell our souls to the devil if he promised us hell
it's something we already know so well
and it's right on, right on the tip of our tongue
something big that has already begun
(something dead but not quite numb)
and I'm singing it

mouths in line, tears beside
and we're gonna weep in between the sleep
until we float away into broken promises
too much too hard to keep

    General Comment"Did I kill the song for anyone? I know there's someone like 'This song was for my boyfriend and I and it was about a cat?!' Well, thats why the cat comes into the bedroom while you're listening to this cd. xD

    Jason Mraz is such a cool cat.

    General Commentactually, he wrote you and I both for a certain girlfriend, and he made sure that girl knew it was for him by using the word "unincombered" because that was her favorite word...he explains it all on Tonight, Not Again
