"Tonight, Not Again" as written by and Jenny Keane Jason Mraz....
The night.
She brushed her hands upon my flushed cheek
Smelled of childhood remnants of a dusty weeping willow
Clouds soothe, Shredded by the calico
Were oh so vast and quick as I was on my own now.

This time like every other time I believe that I never find
Another sweet little girl with sequined sea foam eyes
Ocean lapping voice smile coy as the brightest quiet span of sky
And I'm all alone again tonight not again, not again, not again.

And don't it feel alright. and don't it feel so nice. Lovely.

Still I'm unable to inhale all the riches
As I'm awkward as a wound on my bones
Still I've got cobblestone joints and plate glass points
As I'm all by myself tonight not again not again

And don't it feel alright. and don't it feel so nice. Lovely.

Well if you should nervously break down
When its time for the shakedown would you take it
It's when you cry just a little but you laugh in the middle that you've made it
And don't it feel alright. and don't it feel so nice.
Lovely.

Say it again. Lovely. So lovely. to do it again
Again. Loving again. It's coming again.
Lovely.

    General CommentAs a side note, this song was inspired by a poem of the same name by his friend Jenny Keene.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song of Jason's. His musical talent and his voice are amazing and beautiful. When I hear it, I think of a boy and a girl so in love and how its such a lovely feeling, and they don't want to leave one another

    "It's when you cry just a little but you laugh in the middle that you've made it
    And don't it feel allright. and don't it feel so nice.
    Lovely. "

    General CommentSex is beautiful depending on the way it's done and the way it's portrayed. Mraz portrays it beautifully. It's graceful.

    General CommentI've heard live shows where he explains the song. His words "This is a song about being in love with..... when your alone at home and you think you might be sad, but then you realize, damn I had a great time by myself" he also alludes to masturbation in his live versions with lines like tonight I feel like coming again. The verses are the part where he is kinda bummed and then the chorus is when he's having a great time with himself. A kinda scandelous thing presented in a very lovely melodic way. Great song....

    General CommentI think this song is about relationships, in general -- how he gets into them, and how they end. "as I was on my own now" and "this time, like every other time" and "ANOTHER sweet little girl" point to there being several relationships. The following verse with "unable to inhale all the riches" may point to him not fully appreciating what he has, because, as the old saying goes, you don't know what you have until it's gone. That could be a reason for all the relationships ending, too. Just a thought. And the note he carries out after the interlude, that long "again"... I love it. Great, great song. Reminds me of nights last summer.

    General CommentWow thanks Tocabowl, I really like this song and I loved it at first and then started listening closer and said to my wife "Man I think this is about masturbating!" That's what I got out of it anyway. In the first verse seems he's talking about a girl that was turning him on but then left him alone and so then he's all alone tonight (not again, not again) and he thinks about her and, well, it's just lovely. Lovely. Lovely. :)
