all John Mayer lyrics



No Such Thing
Welcome to the real world
She said to me kind of condescendingly
Take a seat, take your life
Plot it out in black and white
Well I never lived the dreams of the prom kings
And the drama queens
I'd like to think the best of me
Is still hiding up my sleeve

They love to tell you stay inside the lines
But something's better on the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

So the good boys and girls take the so-called right track
Faded white hats grabbing the credits and making transfers
They read all the books but they can't find the answers
And all of our parents, they're getting older
I wonder if they've wished for anything better
While in their memories, tiny tragedies

They love to tell you stay inside the lines
But something's better on the other side

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I am invincible
I am invincible
I am invincible
As long as I'm alive

I wanna run through the halls of my high school
I wanna scream at the top of my lungs
I just found out there's no such thing as the real world
Just a lie you've got to rise above

I just can't wait till my ten year reunion
I'm gonna bust down the double doors
And when I stand on these tables before you
You will know what all this time was forback to top
Why Georgia
I am driving up 85 in the
Kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
I'm just stuck inside the gloom

4 more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
And leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life
Am I living it right
Am I living it right
Am I living it right
Why, why georgia, why

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
Wood in places to make it feel like home
But all I feel's alone

It might be a quarter-life crisis
Or just the stirring in my soul
Either way

I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life
Am I living it right
Am I living it right
Am I living it right
Why, why georgia, why

So what so I've got a smile on
It's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head

Don't believe me
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is just a stranger
But that's the danger in going my own way
I guess it's a price I have to pay
Still everything happens for a reason
Is no reason not to ask myself
If I'm living it right

Am I living it right
Am I living it right
Why, why georgia, whyback to top
My Stupid Mouth
My stupid mouth,
Has got me in trouble.
I said too much again.
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see she was offended.
She said well anyway...
Just dying for a subject change.

Oh, it's another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said think before speaking
No filter in my head.
Oh, what's a boy to do?
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips. she looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the
Salt and pepper shaker.
And I could see clearly
An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what just
Slipped out and what went wrong.

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed.
Thanks for playing, try again.

How could I forget?

Mama said think before speaking
No filter in my head.
Oh, what's a boy to do?
I guess he better find one.

I'm never speaking up again. it only hurts me.
I'd rather be a mystery than she desert me.

Oh I'm never speaking up again.
Starting now

One more thing.
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked, I just wanna be funny.
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

I'm never speaking up again it only hurts me.
I'd rather be a mystery than she desert me.

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting nowback to top
Your Body Is a Wonderland
we got this afternoon
you got this room for two
one thing id love to do
discover me discovering you
one mile to every inch of
your skin like porcilean
one pair of candy lips and
your bubble gum tounge
cause if you want love
well make it
swim in a deep sea of blankets
take all your big plans and break`em
this is bound to be a while

Chorus

your body is a wonderland
your body is a wonderland ill use my hands
your body is a wonderland

theres something bout the way the hair falls in your face
i love the shape you take while crawling towards the pillow case
you tell me where to go and though i might leave to find it
ill never let you head hit the bed with out my hand behind it
you want love
well make it
swim in a deep sea of blankets
take all your big plans and break`em
this is bound to be a while


chorus x1


damn baby, you fusterate me
i know your mine, all mine, all mine,
but you look so good it hurts sometimes

chorus x1

This song is the coolest song by john mayer (besides my stupid mouth)

Neon
Sky blue gets dark enough
To see the colors of the city lights
A trail of ruby red and diamond white
Hits her like a sunrise

She comes and goes
And comes and goes
Like no one can

Tonight she's out to lose herself
And find a high on peachtree street
From mixed drinks to techno beats
It's always heavy into everything

She comes and goes
And comes and goes
Like no one can
She comes and goes
And no one knows
She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away

I can't be her angel now
You know it's not my place to hold her down
And it's hard for me to take a stand
When I would take her anyway I can

She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slipping through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns away (away)

She comes and she goes
Like no one can
She comes and she goes
She's slippin through my hands

She's always buzzin just like
Neon, neon, neon, neon
Who knows how long, how long, how long
She can go before she burns awayback to top
City Love
I never liked this apple much
It always seemed too big to touch
I can't remember how I found
My way before she came around

I tell everyone
I smile just because
I've got a city love
I found it in lydia
And I can't remember life before her name

She keeps a toothbrush at my place
As if I had the extra space
She steals my clothes to wear to work
I know - her hairs are on my shirts

I tell everyone
I smile just because
I've got a city love
I found it in lydia
And I can't remember life before
The day
She called up and came to me
Covered in rain
And dinnertime shadowing
And as her clothes spun, we spooned
And I knew I was through
When I said I love you

Friday evening, we've been drinking
2 am, I swear I might propose
But we close the tab
Split a cab
And call each other up when we get home
Falling asleep to the sound
Of sirens

I've got a city love
I found it in lydia

From the battery
To the gallery
It's the kind of thing you only see
In scented, glossy magazines

And I can't remember life before her nameback to top
83
I have these dreams I'm walking home
Home where it used to be
Everything is as it was
Frozen in front of me

Here I stand six feet small
Romanticizing years ago
Well it's a bittersweet feeling
Hearing wrapped around your finger on the radio

And these days
I wish I was six again
Oh make me a red cape
I wanna be superman
Oh if only my life was more like 1983
All these things would be more like they were at the start of me
I had it made in 83

Thinking about my brother ben
I miss him everyday
He looks just like his brother john
But on an eighteen month delay

Here I stand six feet small
And smiling cause I'm scared as hell
Kinda like your life is like a sequel to a movie
Where the actors' names have changed

Well these days
I wish I was six again
Oh make me a red cape
I wanna be superman
Oh if only my life was more like 1983
All these things would be more like they were at the start of me
If my life was more like 1983
Plot a course to the source of the purest little part of me

And most my memories have escaped me
Or confused themselves with dreams
If heaven's all they want it to be
Send your prayers to me care of 1983

You can paint that house a rainbow of colors
Rip out the floorboards
And replace the the shutters
But that's my plastic in the dirt

Whatever happened to my
Whatever happened to my
Whatever happened to my lunchbox
When came the day when it got
Thrown away
Don't you think I should have had some say in that decision

If only my life
If only my life
(fades singing if only my life)back to top
3x5
I'm writing you to
Catch you up on places I've been
You held this letter
Probably got excited, but there's nothing else inside it

Didn't have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world with both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it when i'm
In the mood to lose my way with words

Today skies are painted colors of a cowboy's cliche'
And strange how clouds that look like mountains in the sky
Are next to mountains anyway

Didn't have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world with both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm in the mood to lose my way
But let me say

You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
It brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
Just no more 3x5's

Guess you had to be there
Guess you had to be with me

Today I finally overcame
Tryin' to fit the world inside a picture frame
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm in the mood to
Lose my way but let me say

You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
It brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
No more 3x5's
Just no more 3x5'sback to top
Love Song for No One
Staying home alone on a friday
Flat on the floor looking back
On old love
Or lack thereof
After all the crushes are faded
And all my wishful thinking was wrong
I'm jaded
I hate it

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

Searching all my days just to find you
I'm not sure who I'm looking for
I'll know it
When I see you
Until then, I'll hide in my bedroom
Staying up all night just to write
A love song for no one

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I could have met you in a sandbox
I could have passed you on the sidewalk
Could I have missed my chance
And watched you walk away?

I'm tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
So tired of being alone
So hurry up and get here
You'll be so good
You'll be so good for meback to top
Back to You
Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I tried to forget you
I tried to stay away
But it's too late

Over you
I'm never over
Over you
Something about you
It's just the way you move
The way you move me

I'm so good at forgetting
And I quit ever game I play
But forgive me, love
I can't turn and walk away

Back to you
It always comes around
Back to you
I walk with your shadow
I'm sleeping in my bed
With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture
If it's the last that I'll see of you
It's the least that you
Could not do

Leave the light on
I'll never give up on you
Leave the light on
For me too

Back to me
I know that it comes
Back to me
Doesn't it scare you
Your will is not as strong
As it used to beback to top
Great Indoors
Check your pulse
Its proof that you're not listening to
The call your life's been issuing you
The rhythm of a line of idle days

Scared of the world outside you should go explore
Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors
The great indoors

Lamplight makes the shadows play
And posters take the walls away
The tv is your window pane
The view wont let you down

So put your faith in a late night show
I bet you didn't even know
Depends on how far out you go
The channel numbers change

Scared of the world outside you should go explore
Pull all the shades and wander the great indoors

Though lately I can't blame you
I have seen the world
And sometimes wish your room had room for two

So go unlock the door
And find what you are here for
Leave the great indoors
Please leave the great indoors

Check your pulse
Its proof that you're not listening to
The call your life's been issuing you
The rhythm of a line of idle daysback to top
Not Myself
Suppose I said
I am on my best behavior
And there are times
I lose my worried mind

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

Suppose I said
Colors change for no good reason
And words will go
From poetry to prose

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I am someone else?

And i, in time, will come around
I always do for you

Suppose I said..
You're my saving grace

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I'm someone else?

Would you want me when I'm not myself?
Wait it out while I'm someone else?back to top
St. Patrick's Day
Here comes the cold
Break out the winter clothes
and find a love to call your own

You - enter you
Your cheeks a shade of pink
and the rest of you in powder blue

Who knows
what will be
but I'll make you
this guarantee

No way November will see our goodbye
When it comes to December it's obvious why
no one wants to be alone at Christmas time

In the dark, on the phone
you tell me the names of your brothers
and your favorite colors
I'm learning you

And when it snows again
we'll take a walk outside
and search the sky
like children do

No way November will see our goodbye
When it comes to December it's obvious why
no one wants to be alone at Christmas time
And come January we're frozen inside
making new resolutions a hundred times
February, won't you be my valentine?

And we'll both be safe 'til St. Patrick's Day

We should take a ride tonight around the town
and look around at all the beautiful houses
Something in the way that blue lights on a black night
can make you feel more

Everybody, it seems to me, just wants to be
just like you and me

No one wants to be alone at Christmas time

Come January we're frozen inside
making new resolutions a hundred times
February, won't you be my valentine?

And if our always is all that we gave
and we someday take that away
I'll be alright if it was just 'til St. Patrick's Day

Bye bye baby, bye bye babe
