Another lovely Sunday means another opportunity to listen to a great song here on the blog.  I’m looking out the window at another sunny spring day.  All of the trees on my street have exploded with pink and white flowers.   Nature’s signs of dormant life renewed are everywhere.  It “looks” hopeful, which is the inspiration for today’s song selection, Jason Mraz’s Make It Mine.

In my opinion, Jason Mraz writes uplifting songs about love and life.  The melodies are always catchy, and the lyrics are thoughtful.  Make It Mine, in particular, is about chasing your dreams, and energizing yourself and others along the way.  I believe we can do that for each other.

Optimism is contagious.  If you start down a path and you get support, you will keep reaching until you succeed.  The happiness you feel from getting closer to your own goals can inspire you to encourage others to find theirs…and the cycle repeats.  That’s what I think this song is all about.  Take a look at the lyrics then watch the Youtube video below to listen.  I bet you’ll be humming it for the rest of the day!

Make It Mine

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don’t wanna wake before
The dream is over
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes I… I will own it
I’m gonna make it mine
Yes I’ll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it’s lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at the gratitude cafe

And I am finally there
And all the angels they’ll be singing
Ah la la la ah la la ah la la la la la love this

Well I don’t wanna break before
The tour is over
[Refrain]

Yes, I will make it all mine…
And timing’s everything
And this time there’s plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that everyone’s emitting

Well I don’t wanna wait no more
No, I wanna celebrate the whole world
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I’m following your joy
I’m gonna make it mine
Because I… I am open
I’m gonna make it mine
That’s why… I wanna show it
I’m gonna make it, it mine
Gotta make gotta make gotta make gotta make it make it mine
Oh mine…
Yes I will make it all mine…

 

Now take a listen to an acoustic version of the song (which I took off his official Youtube channel)…and then go have a great day!
