Song Meaning of I'm Yours by Jason Mraz, and what it is about


The singer-songwriter acknowledged to Billboard that it only took him less than 20 minutes to write the song.


Five years prior to its release, he said, the melody simply appeared to him in his San Diego room. He then played it on the road for some time before finally recording it. According to Jason, the song is mostly about offering oneself to someone or something out of love and may either be a romantic song or a straightforward song about empowering oneself.


The song spent 76 weeks on the chart, beating the previous record for the longest-charting song. It peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.


Lyrics of I'm Yours by Jason Mraz


Well, you done, done me in, you bet I felt it

I tried to be chill, but you're so hot that I melted

I fell right through the cracks

Now I'm trying to get back


Before the cool done run out, I'll be givin' it my bestest

And nothing's gonna stop me but divine intervention

I reckon it's again my turn

To win some or learn some


But I won't hesitate no more, no more

It cannot wait, I'm yours


Well, open up your mind and see like me

Open up your plans and, damn, you're free

Look into your heart, and you'll find love, love, love, love

Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing

We're just one big family

And it's our godforsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved


So I won't hesitate no more, no more

It cannot wait, I'm sure

There's no need to complicate, our time is short

This is our fate, I'm yours


Do, do, do, do you

But do you, do you, do, do

But do you want to come on?

Scooch on over closer, dear

And I will nibble your ear


I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror

And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer

But my breath fogged up the glass

And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I'll be saying is there ain't no better reason

To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons

It's what we aim to do

Our name is our virtue


But I won't hesitate no more, no more

It cannot wait, I'm yours


Open up your mind and see like me

Open up your plans and, damn, you're free

Look into your heart, and you'll find that the sky is yours

So please don't, please don't, please don't

There's no need to complicate

'Cause our time is short

This, oh, this, oh, this is our fate

I'm yours


Oh, I'm yours

Oh, I'm yours

Oh, whoa-oh

Baby, do believe I'm yours

You best believe, you best believe I'm yours
