Running to catch up again, jumping higher and flying more often than not
Your trampoline has got holes in it but I can still see the top
Let me climb aboard and sample some of next years fashion
I'll wear the coat if you can put the hat on, I will wear the coat,
Just let me clear my throat so I can say what's been delayed away

Let me crawl into your lap and just lay here for awhile
Satisfied by your seduction like a handshake would do the job
Never know how long I have waited, anticipated your smile to be pressed against mine
Well I feel it. (oh boy) and I'm gonna settle tight

She could pour me over this sugar hill or mountain
Until I get hat cool breeze, tight squeeze, I'd do it over again
And I drink from her ever flowing fountain
And then I wake up I comb my hair and I hurry it up
But I arrive late I pack my things and I pick it up
Well I put down a good amount of deodorant this morning
And I found that I could drown a little bit of peace of mind
Cause it's no secret that to some degree they're gonna have to see you sweat
Strong enough for a man just do what you can to keep me soft and dry, I stink awhile

I don't know anything about those things
I almost don't wanna know anything about those things
And I don't care anything about those things
Cause if I did you know I'd share myself on those things, and I feel it

And I'll be here all night, I'll pick up the pieces and I put them back together now
They may not be the right way but that's okay as long as they're all the same
I wish you well that you'd get better, and I know you'll find that it's a wild world
And if you had noticed well would you have thrown the towel in
Before I missed out on all this love, and watch me roll away again
Watch me disappear under my skin
I don't believe it that things could get any worse than they did that time
You must have seen it I mean how could we get lost running in a straight line
Your cries of why's and why not's, may it all get back to you
And trickle and dance upon your headaches, years of biting cheeks are through
So I don't believe in it.

But I feel it.

    General CommentThis is my all time favorite song. I sat 5 feet away from him once as he played it...it was the first time i had heard it and it always makes me smile. it reminds me of this crush i have had for sooo long. he just went to brazil for 2 years and when he left he jokingly gave me a handhake sooo the "Satisfied by your seduction like a handshake would do the job
    Never know how long I have waited, anticipated your smile to be pressed against mine" part of the song is definitely my favorite too!

    General CommentI love this song so much.
    It puts me at ease completely.
    I love Jason Mraz. I've been listening to him non-stop for the last 6 months, and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
