SLS – Fate

Jim chose an interesting theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday, including the word “fate”. It took me a while to figure out which song to pick. But in the end I went with a song that is so upbeat it makes me smile from ear to ear.

Jason Mraz penned and sang “I’m Yours” and I believe it is his biggest hit yet. I defy you to listen to this song and not feel good about love and life!

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill, but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
Now I’m trying to get back

Before the cool done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon, it’s again my turn
To win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate
No more, no more
It cannot wait
I’m yours

Well, open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
And look into your heart and you’ll find love, love, love, love
Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing, we’re just one big family
And it’s our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved

So I won’t hesitate
No more, no more
It cannot wait
I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate
I’m yours

But don’t you want to come on and scooch on over closer, dear
And I will nibble your ear

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I’ll be saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

But I won’t hesitate
No more, no more
It cannot wait
I’m yours

Well, open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours
So please don’t, please don’t, please don’t
There’s no need to complicate
‘Cause our time is short
This oh, this oh, this is our fate
I’m yours

Oh, I’m yours
Oh, I’m yours
Oh, oh
Baby, do believe I’m yours?
You best believe, you best believe, I’m yours
