"Who Needs Shelter" as written by and Eric Schermerhorn Jason Mraz....
Good-day sunlight
I'd like to say how truly bright you are
You don't know me but I know you
You're my favorite star
Follow you I will so lets get moving

Who needs shelter when the mornings coming?
Absolutely there's no one
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Not me, no. not anyone.

By your clock the cock rooster crows
Then off to work where everybody goes
Slow, But eventually they get there
Picking up the day shift back where all left off
Confined and pecking at relationships
You know it's only a worthless piece of shit

Who needs shelter when the mornings coming?
Absolutely there's no one
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Not me, no. not anyone.

I'd sleep it all away but the sun won't let me
I'd miss those lovely days of summer

Good-day sunlight
I'd like to say how truly bright you are
You don't know me but I know you
You're my favorite.

    General CommentI can't believe only 2 people have commented on this song. This song is so soft and mellow... it's like a lullaby...
    It's so deep when you think about it. He's talking about how nowadays, everyone dreads the next morning, the constant struggle all day. Everything seems so hopeless, and you forget how bright, how beautiful it is to be alive. It's time we see all the positives in the world and stop hiding and whining about our own petty little problems.

    General Commentmraz's says it's about -
    "I experimented with a lot of different things just to see how they would feel. After staying up all night, I began to hang out with a morning crowd. I thought, "What a different world! There are these people who jog and do all kinds of stuff before they go to work!" I thought, "I'm gonna turn this around. I'm gonna become a morning person!" I wrote "Who Needs Shelter," hoping that it would be my new theme. I would get away from the "Sleep All Day" thing and do the "Who Needs Shelter" thing, because it's important that I get up and have a full day. But it didn't last!"

    General CommentWow, not a lot of comments for this song. Jason is a wonderful lyricist, and this song proves it. His voice is so smooth, and really shows his range in music. It's so sad, and so bright at the same time. Beautiful!

    General Commentloveee this song..and like someone up there said it does remind me of summer..even though he really only mentions summer once but i guess its the whole idea of sun. I should play this song every morning when i wake up..maybe it will make me feel better about being up at 6:00..i doubt it..
