Mraz Makes Meaning Out Of Anything

Posted on: September 17, 2009

“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
And it takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

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 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 the dust to have it polished, yeah

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 life is wonderful
Ah la la la la

It is, it is so
And it is so

It takes some silence to make sound
And it takes a loss before you found it
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 life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la life is meaningful
Ah la la la la la la la life is wonderful

Ah la la la la la la it is so wonderful
It is so meaningful
It is so wonderful
It is so meaningful

It is wonderful
It is meaningful

It goes full circle
Wonderful
Meaningful”

And it takes a misstep to cause a sprained ankle.
In my case.

In any other case, life is indeed ponderous. We have had moments when we would drown out the voices and sounds of the world, and simply block out that time to recollect, reminisce and reflect. Ah, life can be that complicated.

(While I typed that sentence, I knocked the wind out of my electrical fan. Literally. It was knocked to the ground and then it ceased to operate momentarily. Yup, I am such an appliance abuser.)

However, if you intend to simplify it for just one day, so take a listen to Jason Mraz. He such packs a punch of words in one song. Come on, rhythm and poetry in one tune? Blast that funky music white boy!
