"Life Is Wonderful" as written by and Jason Thomas Mraz....
It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I'm saying

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
It takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

La la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn, brother
And it takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
And it takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes some dust to have it polished

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
And it takes some loss before you found me
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to make you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la
It is so wonderful
It is so meaningful
It is so wonderful
It is meaningful
It is wonderful
It is meaningful
It goes full circle
Wonderful
Meaningful
Full circle
Wonderful

    General Commenti absolutly love this song.
    i think jason is just telling everyone that no matter how hard things are you have to go through the hard things to get to the wonderful things.


    i found some lyric mistakes
    "it takes some tears to make you trust
    it takes some years to make it rust"

    i should be
    "it takes some fears to make you trust"
    "it takes some tears to make it rust"

    i think.
    i was just listening to the song and thats what it sounded like to me.

    General CommentThis song just shows how simple and wonderful love is. It takes a night to a make a dawn...duh like thats how simple love can be. And it takes no time to fall in love but once youre in love it can take you a lot of time for you to figure out everything that goes along with it
    it takes no time to fall in love
    but it takes you years to know what love is
    it takes some tears to make you trust
    it takes some years to make it rust
    it takes some dust to make it polished
    (That part kind of shows that you have to take the bad things or the things that dont really work between the 2 people and make it work)

    General CommentI think this song is about loving the simple things in life. Also i noticed that the song time is 4minutes and 20seconds exactly. At 4:20 life is pretty wonderful!

    General CommentI totally agree with triste on how good of a song it is and yet so few comments. I think that jason is trying to explain that everything works in circles. Sometimes there are bad parts in the circle but since its okay because its going to become good sooner or later. He's admiring the way life works.
