Jason Mraz: Hello, You Beautiful Thing

The way Jason Mraz sees it, everything in life boils down to people saying “yes”. “Yes inspires creativity. It’s what allows creativity to occur,” he says. “Yes is love. Yes is what gave us life. We’re all here because two people said yes.” Saying yes has given this singer, songwriter, musician, photographer, filmmaker, and social activist a life beyond his wildest dreams. Since getting his start 15 years ago performing in coffeehouses in his adopted city of San Diego, Mraz has brought his positive message and soulful, folk-pop sound to rapt audiences around the world through his recordings, vibrant live performances, and philanthropic efforts. Along the way, he has earned platinum or multi-platinum certifications in more than 20 countries for his various releases, sold 48 million singles, made pop history with his record-breaking classic single, “I’m Yours,” racked up two Grammy Awards among six nominations, won a prestigious Hal David Songwriter Hall of Fame Award, performed in amphitheaters and arenas across the globe, and sold out such iconic venues as The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and London’s O2 Arena. Saying yes has been good to Jason Mraz.

Jason Mraz: Hello, You Beautiful Thing Lyrics:
Fall out of bed and catch a fading star
Fancy I woke up before my alarm
Rub my mind through my eyes
It’s the best I can do
Before it’s automatic, habit of returning to you
Though i smile when it happens, almost as if it was magic
It means there’s a god somewhere and he’s laughing
And I shuffle my slipperless toes to the kitchen
Still low to the ground, but high on living

And I know, I know, it’s gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

Waking up, I stretch my body and acknowledge some aches
It must be something I did yesterday
Pour a cup of liquid gold, ’cause my engine’s still cold
And in a minute everything’s gonna change

And I know, I know, it’s gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

This is what I’ve been waiting for
This is what I’ve been waiting for
This is what I’ve been waiting for
This is what I’ve been waiting for

Looking out from a cul de sac watching the band of the Earth take the plaque of the night from the dirt
I can see from the depths of my readjustinized reflection of yes’s and that ever changing sky
But why do bad dreams linger long after I awake?
I don’t need no scenes of violence or pain replayed
And I feel quite foolish sometimes when I pray
But my thoughts are all I’ve got so I try to make’em brave

And I know, I know, it’s gonna be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing

This is what I’ve been waiting for (this is what I’ve been waiting for)
This is what I’ve been waiting for (this is what I’ve been waiting for)
This is what I’ve been waiting for (this is what I’ve been waiting for)
This is what I’ve been waiting for (Hello)

And I know, I know, it’s going to be a good day
Hello, hello, you beautiful thing
