Jason Mraz - Galaxy Lyrics

Well here I am
I'm sitting alone again
I'm staring up at the sky
Which at this lonely moment is my only friend
And suddenly as I gazed upon the night
Well I notice the stars
They began to shake and dance and burst
And fall into the darkness
They exploded down
I knew what I had to do
I ran up to the top of the hill
And I took a hold for you
You were the sweetest star that fell
And yes, I held onto it close
To the numbness in my heart

And then I kissed a star
Yes I did
I wrapped it up inside of a golden bow
And then I ran away
Just to find you
'Cause this was your gift
Your gift
Oh shit
A star that I kissed
Oh the galaxy that lives inside your eyes
Was in need
I said it was in need
Of a, of a brand new shining light
I said I wished to the dark sky above
That all I had was to be captured
And willingly turned over to you
I know you better now
And at this I smile
I simply gave to you
The symbol of what you are to me
You are the star that shines
And explodes with light
And I love and embrace
Love and embrace all that I can
You better take this blindess and stay away from me
And let me bask inside of your golden seam
I never knew such simple astronomy
I never knew it could come to me
And not by the ways of the heart

And call on me
To be one of those strangely dressed wise men
Who follow the stars to their love
You are such a perfect star to wish upon
Well I love you and god and I'm hopeful
Of what this lonely night may lead me to
So I said, God I'm hopeful
Of what this lonely, lonely night
Will lead me tonight
Oh well, well I'm hopeful that this lonely night
Well it shines so right
I'm hopeful
I'm hopeful of all good things
To come about
I'm wishing upon you now
Yeah, I'm wishing upon you now

Free me and let me indulge my view
Oh most beautiful you
Keeper of starlight
Take on me
Oh, oh, oh
Well here I am
I'm sitting all by myself again
I stare up at the sky
Which at this moment is my only friend
Say well, suddenly as I gazed upon the night
Well i notice the stars
They began to shake and burst
Oh it looks like they want to fight, no
They were dancing
They were romancing
Oh, they were falling in love
They falling in love all over
Falling in love all over
Falling in love, falling in love, falling in love
I say falling in love, falling in love all over
Falling in love, is my best friend
Falling in love all over,
All over again

  5. B Miller

    I wish Jason would release a album with just guitar and percussion. I would buy that for sure. I like his songs in more of a "coffee shop" sound. I half to go to youtube to listen to Jason at his best.

    John Webb

    @B Miller Live at Java Joe's. It's the first album of his I bought back in 2002 or something.

    Jeff Geld

    He has one. Live at Java Joes! https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/jason-mraz-live-acoustic-2001/274127659

    Vicki Cupper

    Live at Java Joe's is one of the best live albums I've ever heard. I wore out 3 CDs I listened to it so much.

  6. natalia ruiz

    i'm kinda in love with the chord progression...i'm not sure if i've heard it before...which should be impossible...

  18. amovirgo

    I totally agree! He even sounds better live which is hard to do. After all, most people now can't sing without major editing.

  19. Windi Srilestari

    hahahah LOL.. i like your comment man... it's true!!!

  20. John Gallagher

    Considering Stardust came out after they wrote it, I doubt it occurred to them.

  21. Andrew Wonders

    Ummmm... did it occur to you or your Buddy that this is based on Neil Gaiman's "Stardust"?

  22. Jonathan Hedrick

    That last note...

  23. TokyoDrift

  28. Kelly Hrivnak

    This is such a beautiful song. My coaches loved it so much that they made it our winterguard music for this season! :D

  29. Jonathan Hedrick

    Jason, this is awesome. And btw, thanks for letting us read your thoughts too from time to time; we're not all cynics and creeps.

  30. Jasmine

    jason mraz could sing me the nutrtion facts on the back of a bag of chips and itd still be BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL.

  31. MrsMattSkiba

    When my dad wears sandals with socks I get horribly embarrassed.
    When Toca Rivera wears sock with sandals I find it to be incredibly cool.
    Love is blind -_- Lol.

  39. Dinmhor

  51. bangjiwoo

    also around this time it is very pure- no gf, not too much fame, no drugs so he is not really starting his celebrity had not been even got close to being touched by hollywood or big record comps.

  52. Joe Rieder

    rare? what is this, pokemon cards?

  53. Ulfy Ulfer


    That reason why he is the only one that can pull that off is because he will beat the shit out of anyone who says otherwise.

  54. VanceEllis

    @FLIGHTCOMPANY it just might be.... i didn't look close enough!

  55. dmowmow

    I like the percussion's better, the words could use some help

  56. Tanya Walters

  81. DanteDarcangelo

    @conkereye I can't agree more, if someone told me six months ago that I would be a Jason Mraz fan I would have pissed myself laughing. I had no idea how good he is.

  82. Jeff Pelton

    Thank you Stevey for sharing such a sweet song.

  83. ncanert

    it's actually a 612. when you carefully look, you can see the sides of the guitar and the 7 series uses indian rosewood for the sides and back which has a darker color where the 6 series use maple for sides & back which has a lighter color almost just the same as the wood used for the top which is seen here

  84. conkereye

    I dont even like this kind of music normally but you can tell this guy is talented , to be this fluent live is incredible!
