Bigger Than My Body – John Mayer

This is a call to the color-blind
This is an IOU
I’m stranded behind a horizon line
Tied up in something true

Yes, I’m grounded
Got my wings clipped
I’m surrounded (by)
All this pavement
Guess I’ll circle
While I’m waiting
For my fuse to dry

Someday I’ll fly
Someday I’ll soar
Someday I’ll be so damn much more
Cause I’m bigger than my body gives me credit for

Why is it not my time?
What is there more to learn?
Shed this skin I’ve been tripping in
Never to quite return

Yes, I’m grounded
Got my wings clipped
I’m surrounded (by)
All this pavement
Guess I’ll circle
While I’m waiting
For my fuse to dry

Someday I’ll fly
Someday I’ll soar
Someday I’ll be so damn much more
Cause I’m bigger than my body gives me credit for
Cause I’m bigger than my body now

Maybe I’ll tangle in the power lines
And it might be over in a second’s time
But I’ll gladly go down in a flame
If the flame’s what it takes to remember my name

Yes, I’m grounded
Got my wings clipped
I’m surrounded (by)
All this pavement
Guess I’ll circle
While I’m waiting
For my fuse to dry
For my fuse to dry

Someday I’ll fly
Someday I’ll soar
Someday I’ll be so damn much more
Cause I’m bigger than my body
I’m bigger than my body
I’m bigger than my body now

Speak for Me – John Mayer

Now the cover of a Rolling Stone
Ain’t the cover of a Rolling Stone
And the music on my radio
Ain’t supposed to make me feel alone

What a drag to know
I have to learn to let it go

Show me something I can be
Play a song that I can sing
Make me feel as I am free
Someone come speak for me

Now they’re celebrating broken things
I don’t want a world of broken things
You can tell that something isn’t right
When all your heroes are in black and white

What a drag to say
At least I still have yesterday
Show me something I can be
Play a song that I can sing
Make me feel as I am free
Someone come speak for me
Someone come speak for me

La di da di da
La di da di da
La di da di da di da
La di da di da di da
Oh yeah

I’m not mad about it
But I’m not mad about it
I’m not mad about it
But I’m not that mad about it
Just show me something I can be
Play a song that we can sing
Make us feel as we are free
Someone come speak for me
Someone come speak for me
Someone come speak for me

Now the cover of a Rolling Stone
Ain’t the cover of a Rolling Stone

The Heart of Life – John Mayer

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There’s things you need to hear
So turn off your tears
And listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know, it’s nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then, circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who’s misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good
I know it’s good

Bold as Love – John Mayer

Anger he smiles towering in shiny metallic purple armor
Queen Jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her fiery green gown sneers at the grassy ground
Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted
They quietly understand
The once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready
But wonder why the fight is on

But they’re all bold as love
Yeah, they’re all bold as love
They’re all bold as love
Just ask the axis

My red is so confident that he flashes
Trophies of war and ribbons of euphoria
Orange is young, full of daring
But very unsteady for the first go around
My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact I’m trying to say it’s frightened like me
And all these emotions of mine keep holding me from
Giving my life to a rainbow like you

I’m bold, bold as love
Yeah I’m bold, bold as love
I’m bold, bold as love
Just ask the axis
Yeah he knows, he knows everything
I’m bold, bold as love
