Well you dawned me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot I melted
I fell right through the cracks
And now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my best-est
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn
To win some or learn some

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We are just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

D-d-do do you, but do you, d-d-do
But do you want to come on
Scooch on over closer dear
And I will nibble your ear

Oh oh
I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I been saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find the sky is yours
So please don't please don't please don't
There's no need to complicate
'Cause our time is short
This, oh this, this is our fate, I'm yours

    General CommentThis song is so intentional. To me, the message is as clear as day. Stop caring so much. He's been spending too long making sure he looks perfect, to please everyone else. And there is still something wrong, so he does whatever he can to try and see whats wrong with him. And then his reflection gets blurry, and he forgets where he began. So he starts over again, and is finally able to enjoy who he truly is. So just stop working on your appearance so much and go with the flow, because the only opinion that matters in your life should be your own, and you can never truly change who you are. "Our name is our virtue".

    General Commentok, first of all
    the new version is available on iTunes, and will be on his new album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things out May 20 i think.

    my opinion of the two is that the original version, found out and about on downloading sites, is more of a love song melody, while the iTunes version is like a friends/life song.

    Meaning.
    First Verse- I think it is about how he met this girl and she was amazing,made him buckle at the knees kinda thing,"so hot that I melted", the "i reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some" is like it's his time to win the girl and have a good relationship, or at least learn some valuable wisdom from the experience.

    The Chorus
    1-open up your mind
    just like open up your mind i guess, open up your life so you can just go with the flow of things

    2-I won't hesitate
    basically like a mini version of the john mayer song "say", just like saying what you need to say, in love context, saying what you fell or making a move or something
    in life context, just not hesitating to go and do something, being spontaneous, going with the flow
    "our time is short, this is our fate, no need to complicate" to not over analyze or speculate anything and just live it out in the present.

    Mirror verse
    my interpretation is that he has been spending way too long making sure everything looks perfect in the mirror and in other people's eyes, bending all these ways just to try to get the image right, his efforts fogged up the real image, and then he drew a new image and laughed, go with the flow of things
    "our name is our virtue" virtue literally means-conformity to a standard of right,but it also means a beneficial quality, so my thought is that he's saying either it is yet another common thing,common names, that we all just conform to, or he's saying it is a thing that's givin to us, and we learn to accept it no matter how weird or unique or common it is, like he's saying we should learn to accept ourselves as we truly are
    also maybe he is talking about how since he's bending all over checking himself and his breath fogged up his true self, from doing that, he lost himself in trying to make himself "normal"

    overall
    i think that he's just saying don't hesitate in life, no matter what it is, be true to yourself, enjoy life, and just live in the present.

    speaking of jason mraz, if you liked his t-shirts in his I'm Yours video, you can find them on blendapparel.com ,amazing company,eco-friendly,chec'em out.

    General Commentit's a beautiful song about being head over heels over someone, and how you have to let go and just let it roll and see what happens.

    i LOVE the "tongue" verse.

    General CommentWell, as agreed with much said above, this song is fantastic. But, rather than an ass, I'd say that the tonge is really just a visual of what he tries to say later. "i guess what i'm a sayin'is there ain't no better reason to rid yourself of vanity" He looks in a mirror, fogs is up, and he no longer can see is own face. It becomes new. (that, or it could be that little happy face that everyone draws on fogged up glass) and he laughs at what he see's.
    Now, to go a little far with it, it could be that he was obsessed with seeing something about himself, His vanities, and then, when he fogged it up, he finally realised how stupid he was being for making such an effort on looks.

    Song Meaning"I won’t hesitate no more no more
    It cannot wait. I’m sure.
    There’s no need to complicate. Our time is short
    This is our fate. I’m yours"

    Basically saying he doesn't want to wait any longer to be with the girl of his dreams and wants her to see this as he sees it. He believes it's fate and doesn't understand why is she complicating it any more than it should be.

    "Open up your mind and see like me
    Open up your plans and damn you’re free
    Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love…"

    Wants her to open up her plans meaning maybe break up with her current boyfriend so she could be with him and even find more love for the singer than anyone.

    General Commentso i think this song is like, really good. i love what it means even though it sounds really confusing. i think the tongue verse means hes always trying to impress someone, and he does everything he can. but one time it doesnt work, so he decides to try something new to cover it up, and he ends up liking it better. just my interpretation.. lmao
