Jason Mraz - Back To The Earth Lyrics




Whenever my head starts to hurt
Before it goes from bad to feeling worse
I turn off my phone
I get down low
And put my hands in the dirt

I try to stop the world from moving so fast
Try to get a grip on where I'm at
AND simplify
This dizzy life
And put my feet in the grass

I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth

The only explanation for a high rise
Must be that everybody wants to get high
And move on up
To a deluxe
Apartment in the sky

Well, the higher we go, the taller we grow
We lose sight of the land below
Well, you can have your place
Up in outer space
'Cause my home is where my food is grown

[2x]
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth

(All right lets get the rest in over this bridge)

We are animals (we are animals)
We are wild (we are wild)
We started with the motion
At the bottom of the ocean
Now we're swinging from the tops of the trees

We are animals (we are animals)
We are wild (we are wild)
And to truly be forgiven
We must all get back to living
With the land in harmony

[4x]
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to the earth
I'm going back to work
I'm going back to the earth
(Two more times around!)

  13. Zeus Zeus

  14. Fox1nDen

    always try to plant green and purple string beans that bear even without full sunlight on my back porch on ground floor of this high rise. I enjoy wild peas and black raspberries, too. I know where there is a row of blackberry trees, sweet and abundant. Always know where the wild food is. we do not know when the rest may fall apart.

  15. Tarcísio Barros

    Que pena que conheci essa música só quatro anos depois. Mesmo assim, amei!

  16. Dew Right

    Like a double edged sword slam dunkin it from the free throw line with my tounge out. Consider the planes going up and down and the route I took. Now picture Jordan and what I'm trying to say.

  17. Dew Right

    Walking in the cold I had to stop in the atrium building to warm up. Took the escalator up for something to do instead of just standing their. Not that I care how I looked, I just hate to stand still. I took the elevator back down to the floor I entered on instead of going down another level to ask about work for the next day. People who live in basements typically do not get enough sunlight for lack of windows. I'm not sure if that concept in this case lacks windows unless I should be looking up to this guy! Boys will bee girls and girls will bee boys. Correct me if I am not righting a song here but does this have anything to do with windows. If so in my case maybe boys will be girls and girls will be boys. Washers run For 30 Minutes and dryers for 1 hour. Speaking of in and out and preferring the windows out side looking up to the sky. Thank god for escalators and elevators together. I didn't start this shit, but I'll finish It. Eyeing me down like already a bad boyfriend, well she can get her toys out of the drawer then:) She'll get bi with out me! :) This is a nice comment for those who understand what I am saying! If not I guess we should think about it!

  18. Baleling Castanas

    Really luv ur music....wish I can meet u in person this may2019....
    From Philippines here😘😘💕💕

    And put my feet in the grass

    I'm going back to the earth
    I'm going back to the earth
