"Not So Usual" as written by Martin Terefe and J Mraz....
This is the most unusual story of a most unusual girl.
She's been painting my picture of a most unusual world.
She can crawl out a frame while she's hanging on the wall.
And she's calling my name.
She's not so usual.
She's most unusual.
She's not so usual.
She's so unusual.

She's mostly a ghost the way she watches over me.
She complains when I smoke but then you'd do the same to me.
She's controlling my brain activity knowing when I go to sleep.
She'll catch me when I'm falling hard.
She's so unusual.
She's not so usual.
She's not so usual.
She's so unusual.

She's not so hooked on the drugs like I thought that she was.
And never sucking on the lime, and hardly sipping on the wine.
And despite of her bipolar roller coastering,
I think, I can trust she'll keep me singing differently.
And it's fine 'cause she's with me now most all of the time.
Trying and saving my life thinking not of her own.
And always kissing me good night when I just need to be alone.
She's so sweet, so discreet she's exactly what I need,
Not even make believe.
She's not so usual.

So unusual.
She's not so usual.
So unusual.

Not so usual and not too practical either.
Well, she's not so mystical but not too magical neither.
Well, she's not so outta control and not so used to the fold.
Not so usual
No, she's unnatural.
She's not so usual.
She's most unusual.
She's so unusual.
She's so unusual.
She's gonna use me up.
She's not so u
She's not so u
Not so u
Not so

    General CommentAhhhh great song, it just shows how ironic some things can be. Although she does all these things you normally wouldn't exactly like, or that's really strange, its just so odd that you still love her so much

    General CommentOMG onl ONE person has commented on this song?! are you kidding me?! Wow. Well the way i see this song, is that i want to BE this girl. I imagine her with long dark hair and mesmerising eyes. And he is totally intrigued by this girl. She knows him- She's always kissing me goodnight when i just need to be alone, she so sweet, so discreet. And my favorite part:
    She never sipping on the wine and hardly sucking on the lime and despite of her bi polar rollercoastering, i think i can trust she'll keep me singing differently.

    Wow.

    General CommentThis song is relatable to me. This guy and I have been through our ups-and-downs together for the past 2 years. We've sort of had an on and off relationship since, but now we're trying it as friends. We can't seem to deal w/o eachother. Despite the fact that this guyfriend of mine is bi-polar and quite contagious, I love him. And he's sweet. And we have the weirdest kind of relationship but I couldn't imagine my life without him.

    Aww how friggin corny. But 'tis true, 'tis true. :) Go Mraz.

    General CommentI love this song, im a guy and not afraid 2 cry when i listen to this beautiful song as the lyrics relate 100% to my situation.
    I have a girlfriend who watched her parents die right in front of her very eyes and as a result, has become mentally unstable. She has nightmares almost every night and sometimes during the day as well but theres just something about this girl which makes me want 2 never desert her. She shuts her eyes and closes her ears with her hands many times during the day 2 shut out these nightmares and she gets strange looks from other people all the time but i dont care. Shes definitely not so usual but shes the most beautiful girl i have ever meant. She may seem strange on the outside but inside, she is the most caring, amazing and special girl i have ever come across. Thank You Jason Mraz for singing such a great song, its really touched my heart
