Tuesday Tunage: "After An Afternoon"

In Honor of his 32nd Birthday today, I want to share one of my favorite songs, sung by my boyfriend Jason Mraz.

I like this song because I too feel like a past relationship offended my faith and trust, until all was lost; and the beauty is I can love again.

And when he sings, "your rich brown eyes Your lips and your dark hair", yeah... well I know pretend that was written for me... not to mention the "Face to palm, Tear to tear, And Mouth to tongue..." oh...yeah...

It's three minutes that reminds you what love feels like. Enjoy...

I bare my windowed self untamed and untrained
Dreams that hardly touch our complexions truest faults
If room enough for both my drowsy spirit shall fall
Bold waves tumble, are to the season of my heart
And You have offended my faith and my trust
Until all is lost into the beauty of the day
Until all is lost
(yeah, see-yeah, see-yeah)
And I think It's Lost

And there's something in the way you laugh
And it makes me feel like a child
Aspects of life they confuse me
You and your thesis amuse me
After an afternoon with you
And your rich brown eyes
Your lips and your dark hair
Elbows and exposed knees tossing toward your ceiling
After an afternoon

Face to palm
Tear to tear
Mouth to tongue
Heart to ground
Heart to ground
Say, "I am in love"
Say, "Heart to ground"
Say, everything
Oh, Heart
Oh, Heart
Oh, Heart to ground
I am in love
