"You in a Song" as written by Jason Reeves, James Marr and Wendy Page....
Tryin to figure out which way I want this to go..
Do I want it to be happy or sad or fast or slow??
Tryin' to work it out what it is I feel
Do I wanna rock you shock you sooth you or move you??

I just wanna write you in a song
Put your smile on paper so you can sing along
I just wanna bottle the sun
Keep your light a secret I can find when you are gone

You are like a beautiful tree
With roots in the ground so deep that
They could never be seen
I'm a leaf that's ready to fall
And the wind's gonna blow me someday
Away from it all


Most people when they can't get away
It makes them more than a little crazy
I'm the one that can never stay
But I'll always have you with me in this song

    General Commentthis is an amazing song. the beat hit me when the first 5 seconds of its melody struck my ear. The lyrics are fused so well in the song that it makes it that much better every time i listen to it.

    its quite a self-explanatory song, but pay attention to why he wants to put her in a song. So he can lock her essence in that song so whenever she isnt around, he can sing the song to give him that comfort of just her being around.

    General CommentHe pretty much admits that he cannot commit to a girl, even though this girl made him happy, he could possibly cherish her. So, by writing her in a song, he has a way of always holding her close to him.

    I was immediately drawn into this song after the first 5 seconds of hearing it as well!! Even though I don't relate to it, I just love the lyrics, the melody, his voice...everything. I randomly found it on MySpace!!!

    My InterpretationHe describes all the good things about this girl. It's almost as if she is his muse, she inspires him and makes him want to write and sing.

    General Commenti think this song is amazing:) its about jason writing a song about a girl he truly cares about. when she is away he misses her all the time.. so when she is gone he writes a song and everytime he hears it he has her with him.
