I Can’t Think of a Good Title, so Until I Do, You’re Stuck with This

Whenever I found a song that I loved, or its lyrics moved me, I would write it in a journal. I probably have somewhere around four or five notebooks just filled with song lyrics. This is a habit that has waned in the last five years, which makes me a little sad. So to bring back some of that nostalgia, I decided to share with you one such song.

One of my favorite musical artists is Jason Mraz. As a singer, composer, musician, lyricist, he really is the whole package. He is electric on stage. And one of the three times I’ve ever been moved to tears by a live concert performance was with him. Here is, in my opinion, one of his best songs.

It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It take 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
And it takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la la la la Life goes full circle
A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la laaa

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

A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la la la la Life goes full circle
A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la la It is so…
It is so…

It takes some silence to make sound
It takes some lost before you’re found
It takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to make you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la la la la Life goes full circle
A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la la la la la la Life is meaningful
A la la la la la la Life is wonderful
A la 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

Life is Wonderful – Jason Mraz
