"Bella Luna" as written by and Jason Thomas Mraz William Galewood....
Mystery the moon
A hole in the sky
A supernatural nightlight
So full but often right
A pair of eyes a closin' one
A chosen child of golden sun
A marble dog that chases cars
To farthest reaches of the beach and far beyond into the swimming sea of stars

A cosmic fish they love to kiss
They're giving birth to constellation
No riffs and oh no reservation
If they should fall you get a wish or dedication
May I suggest you get the best
For nothing less than you and I
Let's take a chance as this romance is rising over before we lose the lighting
Oh bella bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do what you do

You are an illuminating anchor
Of leads to infinite number
Crashing waves and breaking thunder
Tiding the evenflows of hunger
You're dancing naked there for me
You expose all memory
You make the most of boundary
You're the ghost of royalty imposing love
You are the queen and king combining everything
Into twining like a ring around the finger of a girl
I'm just a singer, you're the world
All I can bring ya
Is the language of a lover
Bella luna, my beautiful, beautiful moon
How you swoon me like no other

May I suggest you get the best
Of your wish may I insist
That no contest for little you or smaller I
A larger chance happened, all them they lie
On the rise, on the brink of our lives
Bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do what you do
Bella luna, my beautiful, beautiful moon
How you swoon me like no other, oh oh oh

    General CommentThis song is always on my romantic playlist for music! The images he presents are sort of like 'being on a high' which I'm sure which is from romance and foreplay...he's turned on by a girl and as he made mention in "Butterfly" - he loves seeing his girlfriend dance nude..it's a turn on. He finds beauty in many things--I think he's very humble in saying "I'm just a singer you're the world..all I can bring you is the language of love..." meaning he worships her. I also think he wants to be with her in more than just a physical way--an all around commitment since he says, "You are the queen and king combining everything
    intertwining like a ring around the finger of a girl" meaning they are one...--maybe engaged/married?

    5 out of 5 moons for JM's song. PURE bliss!

    General Commentthe song title means beautiful moon(spanish)..
    i think it have something to do with moon and a lady who maybe have similar name as the moon..

    i think he is singing about his lady,their love and how beautiful she is in his eyes..

    General CommentHahahaha! Oh, man... XD
    Sorry, some of the lyrics are just ridiculous. Okay, now that that's out of my system...

    Why can't a song have more than one theme? I think this song is about both the moon (the physical, up-there-in-the-sky moon) as well as a girl who is as beautiful as the moon. Some lines can be applied to both (like from the line 'You're an illuminated anchor...' and all the way up to the end) but some just...can't. Like 'A marble dog that chases cars' for example. Not exactly what you would call romantic. But for the moon, it makes perfect sense.

    It started with just being about the moon, then after the first chorus it's about a girl *and* the moon. It's like he was looking up at the sky, thinking about the moon...then he suddenly noticed the similarities between bella luna and his ladylove, so he started comparing them. I like that. It makes the song flow, like we're following his train of thought, right at the moment he's thinking it.

    Wow, this is a long comment. Can you tell I'm a Jason Mraz fan? :D
    Anyway, I love this song. It's like poetry set to music. Oh, and I love that comment about the night and day albums. rsr173: you rock.

    General CommentAn old friend of mine asked it him personally and he said that it's really about the moon.

    On the other hand, Jason is known for misleading people about the meanings of songlyrics. He says that when someone comes to him and says: ''hey, is this song about this and that?'', he will always agree, because he thinks that it's good that everyone gives his/her own intepretation.
