Jason Mraz’s If it kills me

I wrote yesterday that I really enjoyed Geek in the Pink at the Jason Mraz Kuala Lumpur concert. It wasn’t all that I enjoyed. I had a really great time, to the point that I lost my voice. I haven’t shouted or screamed at a concert that much in a long time (and the concert hall was almost completely full, how awesome was that?).

The song that stuck to me was If It Kills Me. There was such emotion, such sincerity, it felt that he was singing this song to a very specific person. I found myself being swept away by the beauty of the music and the depth of the emotion.

Did he ever tell her, I wonder?

Jason Mraz
If it kills me

Hello, tell me you know
Yeah, you figured me out
Something gave it away
It would be such a beautiful moment
To see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now

And baby that’s a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing
Well, you and I
Why, we go carrying on for hours on end
We get along much better
Than you and your boyfriend

Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

How long, can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
Well, this double life I lead isn’t healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all

‘Cause maybe there’s a lot that I miss
In case I’m wrong

All I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me

If I should be so bold
I’d ask you to hold my heart in your hand
I’d tell you from the start how I’ve longed to be your man
But I never said a word
I guess I’m gonna miss my chance again

Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
I think it might kill me

And all I really want to do is feel you
Yeah, the feeling inside keeps building
I’ll find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
It might kill me

    Believe it or not, I think this type of thing is probably common… I know I have personal experience with it.

    Geminianeyes: I don’t think anyone’s ever articulated it this well to me at least. ^^; I mean the feeling of the song.

    Whheee! And I just came back from his SIngapore one!
    He was da bomb! But he didn’t sing If It Kills Me, though.

    Still, it was amazing! He did this whole showdown with one of his sax players and that was just…mind blowing.

    I loooove Jason Mraz!

    Geminianeyes: He didn’t? Awww, that’s kinda sad. He’s awesome, right? XD I wish the concert didn’t end! :P
