(Running)
Running to catch up again, jumping higher and flying more often than not
Your trampoline has got holes in it but I can still see the top
Let me climb aboard and sample some of next years fashion
I'll wear the coat if you can put the hat on, I will wear the coat,
Just let me clear my throat so I can say what's been delayed away

Let me fall into your lap and just lay here for a while
Satisfied by your seduction like a handshake would do the job
Never know how long I have waited, anticipated your smile to be pressed against mine
Your smile pressed against mine
Well I feel it. (yeah)
Well I feel it. (oh boy)
Well I feel it. (oh my)
and I'm gonna settle tight (settle down)

She could pour me over this sugar hill or mountain
Until I get hat cool breeze, tight squeeze, I'd do it over again
And I drink from her ever flowing fountain
And then I wake up I comb my hair and I hurry it up
But I arrive late I pack my things and I pick it up
Well I put down a good amount of deodorant on this morning
And I found that I could drown a little bit of peace of mind
Cause it's no secret that to some degree they're gonna have to see you sweat
Strong enough for a man just do what you can to keep me soft and dry,
I’ll stink awhile

I don't know anything about those things
I almost don't wanna know anything about those things
I don't care anything about those things
Cause if I did you know I'd share myself on those things, and

Well I feel it. (yeah)
Well I feel it. (oh boy)
Well I feel it. (oh my)
I’m finally settling down,
Maybe you and I can settle down

And I'll be here all night, I'll pick up the pieces and I put them back together now
They may not be the right way but that's okay, okay, as long as they're all the same
I wish you well that you'd get better, and I know you'll find that it's a wild world
That’s okay, cause you’re a wild girl
And I took the hits, and I turned to shit
And if you had noticed well would you have thrown the towel in
Before I missed out on all this love, and watch me roll away again
Watch me disappear up under my skin
I don't believe it that things could get any worse than they did that time
You must have seen it I mean how could we get lost running in a straight line
Your cries of why's and why not's, may it all get back to you
And trickle and dance upon your headaches, years of biting cheeks are through
So I don't believe in it.

But I feel it.

Well I feel it. (at least I’m feeling something)
Well I feel it. (oh boy)
Well I feel it. (oh my)
I’m saving it up again to share it all with you,
Oh, that what I wanna do,
I be feeling it, be feeling it,
Hope you’re feeling it too.

(You Make Me High)
I don't know just what I'm here for
I want more than words can describe
I've been deprived
Can you believe it
My whole world, well its falling apart
It falls, yes it falls, its falling apart around me

And you pick me back up, oh said you’re picking back up
You’re gonna pick me back up and you get me high
Said you pick me back up, oh said you’re picking back up
oh you’re gonna pick me back up and you get me high

I'm drinking all of the tears you cry
I’m breathing up every breath you sigh
I don't wish to know my ending
I just wanna know when I begun
I wanna know when I begun
I wanna know where it started from
where it all had started from

Feel like I am spinning,
Feel like I'm spinning
Well I feel just like I'm spinning, I'm spinning around
I feel like I am spinning around the summer
Then the winter comes and another storm
it falls, well it falls, yes it falls apart around me

And you pick me back up, oh how you picking back up
oh you’re gonna pick me back up and you get me high
Said you’re picking me back up, oh now you’re picking me back up
oh you’re gonna pick me back up and you get me high, high, get me high

I'm drinking all of the tears you cry
I’m breathing up every breath that you sigh
I’m breathing up,
You pick me back up and you get me high,
Only once, I’m flying in all your confidence
Easy does it, I don’t want to fall to pieces
Don’t want to fall to pieces

(Eyes Open (Remember My Name))
So I Keep my eyes open as if
Love could come a walking as if
Everything else is meaningless, meaningless
And that's the way it oughta be
Mystery including me
Oh everything else
Is almost meaningless, meaningless
Okay,
Well I will always feel that way
And if a time of change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well I will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name

Keep your eyes open as if
Everyone else a poet as if
Everything else is meaningless, meaningless
And that's the way it oughta be, yea
Mysteries, especially she
Oh well everything else
Is almost meaningless, meaningless
Okay
Well I will always feel that way
And if a time of change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well I will always feel that way
And if a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name
Say yes, you will, I will remember you
To be a little bit advanced
You gotta take a little bit of a second chance on your life
You gotta get on up and dance
And maybe wave all your precious plans goodbye
You gotta keep your eyes open
As if everything else is just come along on its way
And that's the way it oughta be
Little mysteries in everything
Well I say, I say
Well I, I will always feel that way
And if a time of change should come
You'd remember my name
Oh say
Well I will always feel that way
If a time a change should come
You'd remember my
You'd remember my
You'd remember my name
Say yeah
Baby, you remember my... and I’ll remember us,
Always

(On love, In sadness)
Sing about that whole
“Love it’s a brittle madness”
I sing about it in all my sadness
Not falsified to say that I found god so inevitably well,
It still exists pale and fine. I can't dismiss
And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in life sins
And I'm in like Flynn again

It comes around

so go on place your order now because some other time is right around the block
You can stand in line. it finally begins just around the clock
You can have your pick if your stomach is sick whether you eat or not
And there is just one thing that I never forgot

You and me, we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind, rivers unwind so easy
These are the comforts that be

You see well I'm feeling lucky, oh well, maybe that's just me
Will you be so proud of me, oh hell, if you could only see
How we're gonna grow on up to be, oh yes
We are thick as thieves

Sing about that whole
“Love it’s a brittle madness”
I sing about it in all my sadness
Not falsified to say that I found god so inevitably well,
It still exists pale and fine. I can't dismiss
And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in through hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind and rivers in wind endure
The rust and the rain endure

I am insofar to know the measure of love ain't loss
Love will never ever be insofar to know the measure of love ain't loss
Love will never ever be lost on me.
Not tonight,
Love will never ever be lost on me.

(Dead End)
Singing easily with me, I show affection
but it's creeping up, creeping up on me
in another direction
I love a ride
and I know someday i'm gonna buy it
so I try to ask no questions
but the weary one is often me
do you think it's obsession
the smoke will find you a choker
that matches your coat
not fit to be tied
the mirror
it makes it all clearer
as you stand alone and can see your behind

well they tried it
and they like to say nobody would believe this
Yes, you tried it and you liked it
nobody would ever conceive of it
the way you stayed up locked away up
keeping the flame for yourself
the way you played it out
pushing the blame of
reaping the fame for yourself
oh, it's a it's a dead end
it's a dead end day
it's a dead and lonely day
said a day
it's a dead end
it's a dead end thing
it's a dead and lonely day
and it's a long way
a long way down
sing it again
and it's a long way
it’s a long way down
A long way

change is coming baby
don't be startled lady
every once in awhile they do it again
you're gonna shake it, shake it
you know you wanna take it
back to where you once belonged
said back beneath the sheets
and between the pillow cases
and the snake he races out
and then he tangles into your hair
oh, funny the fruits you choose
oh the time it takes the words you lose
and it all goes back to rotation
over the back of your hand
said the back of your hand
said the back of your hand
the map is your hand
the back of your hand
it’s the back of your hand
you know the map is your hand
You better take pictures of it and remember what you can

Cause it's a long, long way
and it's a long, long way
and it's a long, long,
It’s a long, long way down

(Galaxy)
Here I am I'm sitting alone again
I'm staring up at the sky which at this lonely moment is my only friend
Suddenly as I gaze upon the night
I notice the stars began to shake and dance and fall into the darkness
They exploded down.
I knew what I had to do.
I ran up to the top of the hill and took a hold for you
The sweetest star that fell
and yes I held on to it close to the numbness in my heart

And then I kissed a star.
I wrapped it up inside a golden bow
I ran away just to find you.
This was your gift, oh shit, a star that I kissed.

The galaxy that lived inside your eyes
was in need of a brand new shining light.
I wished to the dark sky up above that all I had
was to be captured and willingly turned over to you.
You are the star that shines and explodes with light and I love and embrace all that I can.

You better take this blindness and sail away from me
let me bask inside your golden sea.
I never ever knew such simple astronomy
never knew it could ever come to me by ways of the heart.

Call me to be one of those strangely dressed wise men
Who follow the stars to their love
You are such a perfect star to wish upon
I love you and god, I'm hopeful
Of what this lonely night may lead me into.
I’m hopeful of what this lonely, lonely night may lead me into now
I’m hopeful that all good things will come about
I'm wishing upon you now.
I’m wishing upon you now.
Glory light, glory, yes, glorious light
Free me and let me indulge in my view
A most beautiful you
A keeper of starlight
Keeping me up, just a little

Here I am I'm sitting alone again
I'm staring up at the sky which at this lonely moment is my only friend
Suddenly as I gaze upon the night
I notice the stars began to shake and burst looks like they wanna fight
No they were dancing. They were romancing.
They were falling in love all over.
Falling in love all over again
Yes, they fall in love
Connecting the dots and crawling around this galaxy
From town to town, look what I found
Falling in love,
Look what I found,
Falling in love again
All my friends falling in love all over

(The Darkest Space)
I'm not just a song anymore
I might be the whole damn score
I might be reeling in your head while
you're sleeping in your bed at night
I'm not just along anymore
Well I finally found what I was lookin' for
I might be sitting in the passenger's side but not along for the ride

Cause I've got control of a home grown situation
I lay back and then I turn the alarm off and turn out the light
There's going to be some quality sleeping
quality's keeping quality up at night
I am fixed to lay with my arms out and learning to fly

Through the darkest space
Where I try to catch up to a catch phrase
To human race I say let the games begin
Under way still in conditions that we play in
Maybe these things are better this way
may the games begin today

Oh well

I'm just above
any ailing aggravation of love
and I raise to optimistical fortune
toasting it twice
I'm getting high on an anytime any day night
And I laugh to think I'm crying my eyes out well isn't it nice

It’s the darkest space
Where I try to catch up to the catch phrase
Human race I say let the games begin
Under way still in conditions that we play in
Maybe these things, maybe these things
may the games begin in open space

I finally catch up to a catch phrase
To human race, well I say, honey let the games begin
Under way still in conditions that we play
Maybe these things should begin today
Boy, this whole damn world is your toy, boy

Mraz: Thank you. That was the first song, we’ve got about 15 more of those. Sweating just a little. That was a lot of fun, you guys.
