Ahhh... good old Jason Mraz... hung out in San Diego area, for awhile... I'm not big on his new album, but "Mr. A-Z" is an amazing album showing off his great singing, colorful/insightful lyrics, and gorgeous songwriting.

I really admire Jason Mraz's song Remedy!

The singing and the lyrics are great:

Remedy

Well I saw fireworks from the freeway and behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring
now something on the surface it stinks
that something on the surface well it kind of makes me nervous who says that you deserve this
and what kind of god would serve this? We will cure this dirty old disease
if you've gots the poison I've gots the remedy

the remedy is the experience. It is a dangerous liaison
I says the comedy is that its serious. Which is a strange enough new play on words
I said the tragedy is how youre gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends and when it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I wont worry my life away. yeah oh oh
I wont worry my life away. yeah oh oh

I heard two men talking on the radio in a crossfire kind of new reality show
Uncovering the ways to plan the next big attack
well they were counting down the ways to stab the brotha in the be right back after this
the unavoidable kiss, where the minty fresh death breath is sure to outlast this catastrophy
dance with me, because if you've gots the poison, I've gots the remedy

the remedy is the experience. It is a dangerous liaison
I says the comedy is that its serious. Which is a strange enough new play on words
I said the tragedy is how youre gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends and when it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I wont worry my life away.yeah oh oh
I wont worry my life away.yeah oh oh

When I fall in love I take my time
There's no need to hurry when I'm making up my mind
You can turn off the sun but I'm still gonna shine and I'll tell you why
Because

the remedy is the experience. this is a dangerous liaison
I says the comedy is that its serious. Which is a strange enough new play on words
I said the tragedy is how you're gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends when it all amounts to nothing in the end.

I wont worry my life away.yeah oh oh
I wont worry my life away.yeah oh oh
I wont and I wont and I wont [etc.]

I don't like the video much (it misses what i feel is the real meaning of the words), but you can hear the tune here:



the tragedy is how youre gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
