"Coyotes" as written by and Jason Thomas Mraz....
I'm sippin' coffee at a quarter to two
I wake and I'm dialin' and my mind's runnin' to you
No wonder I'm a one woman man
She keeps my heart in a jar on the nightstand

I should tell her that she couldn't be more
Opposite than a foot in the door
There's no one else I would rather go out with
That's hell when I see them standin' there

Me and my mouth, we don't mean to be rushin'
We talk about thee freely 'cause we crushin'
I wanna shake both sides of the butt, yeah
Theoretically yes, ain't we lucky

And when the coyotes, they sing in the park
It's when the city lights start fallin' for the sea
While them roads are windin' down
And the flying men'll hit the ground
Every notion is closer to touching
And the coyotes sing when they call on your lovin'

Hello, we're comin' back for more
You know why we're comin' for you
You know we should be, we should be together
'Cause once we rock, we won't wanna stop
Not today or tomorrow

And not today or tomorrow, oh no
You better lock your doors
You know why, 'cause we want you
'Cause we like you a lot

I wish the world was alive like you
I wish the world would blow me through
Another opportunity to approach you
Another telepathic rendezvous

I wish you well with your walkin' and joggin'
You got a double side in Mexico
I gotta try to keep your attention
Gotta write usin' less emoticons

I gotta figure out the snooze alarm
I wanna lay in your place till dark
I wanna play in the park, come on
Now let me see your other upper echelon

And when the coyotes escape to New York
Then the city life has crumbled to the sea
And the girls, all fall to the lost and found
The flying men'll hit the ground
Every notion is closer to touching the coyotes sing
When they taste on your lovin'

I'm a coyote and I got a taste for your lovin'
We're comin' back for more
You know why we're comin' for you
You know we should be, we should be together

Because once we rock, we won't wanna stop
Not today or tomorrow, not today or tomorrow, oh no
Because once we rock, we won't wanna stop
Not today or tomorrow

We're comin' back for more
You know why we're comin' for you
You know we should be, we should be together
'Cause once we rock, we won't wanna stop
Not today or tomorrow

    General Comment"coyotes" is about the one who got away..

    Its about a man who lost a girl and now realizes that he infact loves her...

    this song is his struggle, but yet a confidence that shows "You know I'm coming for you
    you know we should be should be together"

    Its a man remember the goodtimes and how they should be together and he is gonna try no matter what....(he is
    a coyote and coming after her theoretically) but is it too late?

    (amazing song...it should be your next single jason if you ever read this)

    General CommentExcellent Song, great melody and the children choir at the end adds an innocent and youthful touch to it. As Mr. Mraz says: Track 8 is always the standout one in albums.

    Meaning? A guy in love, after a girl, "we should be together" declaring his complete desire for her.

    Great song, inspiring and cheerful, perfect to fire up a night out!

    General CommentIt's more a generalization. Of those women who are incredibly sexy and they know it, and when they say your name, you drop everything to do their bidding. There are a lot of metaphors in the song about how bad he wants his "coyote," but he also talks about the hold those women have on men in general.

    General Commentgreat song lyrics got butchered though


    these sound right to me

    Sipping coffee at a quarter to two
    i wake up and i'm dallin and my minds running to you
    no wonder i'm a one woman man
    she keeps me hot in a jar on the nightstand
    i should tell her that she couldn't be more
    opposite then a foot in a door,
    Theres no one else i would rather go out with, thats hell when i see them standing there
    me and my mouth we don't mean to be rushing
    we talk about thee freely cuz we crushing
    i want to shake both sides of the butt yea
    theatrically yes aint we lucky

    and when the coyotes they sing in the park
    it’s when the city lights starts falling for the sea
    While them roads are windin' down and the flying men'll hit the ground
    every motion is closer to touching
    the coyotes sing when they call on your lovin’

    coming back for more,
    You know I'm coming for you
    you know we should be should be together
    cuz once we rock, we won't wanna stop
    not today not tomorrow.
    you better lock your doors
    you know why, cuz we want you
    cuz we like you alottta

    I wish the world was a lot like you.
    I wish the world would know me through
    another opportunity to approach you
    another telepathic rendezvous
    I wish you well with your walkin' and joggin'
    you got a double sided lexicon
    i got to try to keep your attention
    gotta write use less emoticons
    i gotta figure out the snooze alarm
    i wanta lay in a place till dawn
    i wanta play in the park come on
    now let me see your other upper eschellon

    And when the coyotes escape to new york
    then the city life has crumbled to the sea
    and the girls all fall to lost and found
    the flying men'll hit the ground
    every motion is closer to touching the coyotes sing
    when they taste on your lovin'
    I'm a coyote, and I got a taste for your lovin'

    We're coming back for more,
    You know why we're coming for you
    You know we should be we should be together
    Because once we rock, we won't wanna stop
    not today or tomorrow.
    Because once we rock, we won't wanna stop
    not today or tomorrow.

    General CommentI love the end when the kid is too close to the mike.

    You can hear Jason say "A little too close to the mike?"

    General Comment"I wish you well with your weapons of jargon"
    not
    "i wish you well with your walking and jogging."
    Good work decoding the lyrics though.

    General CommentActually, neither of you have verse two right. It's actually:

    I wish the wild was alive like you.
    I wish the wind would blow me through,
    Another opportunity to approach you,
    Another telepathic rendezvous.
    I wish you well with your weapons of jargon,
    You got a double-sided lexicon.
    I gotta try to your attention,
    Gotta write using less emoticons.
    Gotta figure out the snooze alarm,
    I wanna lay in your place till dawn,
    I wanna play in the park, come on,
    Now let me see your other upper echelon.

    He actually sung part of it a while back during Song for a Friend and I'm stoked that he included it in his new album as they are some of my favorite lyrics by Mraz.

    It's near the end.
