"Make It Mine" as written by and Will Sin Colin Angus....
Wake up everyone,
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap, and the net will appear

I don't want to wake before the dream is over
I'm gonna make it mine, this I, I know it
And I'm gonna make it mine, this I'll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it's lifting you up, up, up and away
And over to a table at the gratitude cafe
And I am finally there,
And all the angels they'll be singing
"I love this."

I don't wanna break before the tour is over
I'm gonna make it mine, this I, I know it
I'm gonna make it mine, this I'll make it all mine.

And timing's everything
And this time there's plenty
I am balancing careful and steady
And revelling in energy that everyone's admitting

I don't wanna wait no more
I want to celebrate the whole world
I'm gonna make it mine
Because I'm following your joy

I'm gonna make it mine
Because I, I am open
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes, I, I wanna show it
I'm gonna make it mine all mine
Gonna make, gonna make it mine...
It's mine, it's mine...

Yes I will make it all mine.

    How can you sleep at a time like this
    Unless the dreamer is the real you
    Listen to your voice
    The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue

    In this song the first verse, I believe, shows listeners what the entire song is about and how it should be looked at; so I'm going to break down the verse by line.



    "Wake up everyone"
    Open your eyes and mind to the world around you and what's going on in it.

    "How can you sleep at a time like this"
    There are forces at work and problems to be dealt with that people need to stop ignoring and being blind to.

    "Unless the dreamer is the real you"
    Unless you know the problems and choose to dream about solutions rather than focus on the negative.

    "Listen to your voice"
    Listen to yourself.

    "The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your toungue"
    The one inside you that drives you to question things and look beyond the ordinary.

    "Leap and the net will appear"
    Trust and have faith and everything will work out.



    The rest of the song and many chorus's are about capturing the good in life and living through it. Living life to the fullest and making everything in life good for you. It's basically a song about first understanding the world, then living a life of love and gratitude.

    General CommentHi :) great job!

    The 6th line is "Leap, and the net will appear"
    and
    "reveling in the energy that everyone's *emitting*"

    I LOVE this song, Jason Mraz moves me in a way no other musician can. His lyrics are so sincere, and he is sooo good with word usage. He is an amazing musician. :)

    General CommentI think the lyrics are "I'm gonna make it mine, yes I'll, I'll own it," not "I know it."

    General CommentHe has the desires to wake up at start of song, and make everything conscious to him HIS. 'i'm owed it,' shows slight greed but greed he deserves.

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't more comments on this song!! This is one of his best on the new album. My fav part is:

    And all the angels they'll be singing
    "I love this."

    Man the vocals and harmonization on the "I love this" part... Man, he was blessed with a great voice. I just keep rewinding it back to that part of the song. I wish I could sing like that! Amazing...
