3x5 Lyrics - John Mayer

Review The Song (12)



I'm writing you to
catch you up on places I've been
And you have this letter
you probably got excited, but there's nothing else inside it
didn't have a camera by my side this time
hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way with words
Today skies are painted colors of a cowboy cliche'
And its strange how clouds that look like mountains in the sky
are next to mountains anyway
Didn't have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world through both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm
in the mood to lose my way
but let me say
sponsored links
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
No more 3x5's
I Guess you had to be there
I Guess you had to be with me
Today I finally overcame
tryin' to fit the world inside a picture frame
Maybe I will tell you all about it when I'm in the mood to
lose my way but let me say
You should have seen that sunrise with your own eyes
it brought me back to life
You'll be with me next time I go outside
no more 3x5's
just no more 3x5's

love it | Reviewer: citlalli | 3/16/13

I didn't like this song at the begining when i first listened to the album, then since John is a genious i was like "ok i'm gonna give it a try" now i'm totally in love with it!!! And now more that i know what 3x5 means..... he is amazing. My second favorite artist after Paul McCartney :)

Wow, this song is just stuck in my head today and I can't say that I mind at all! What a brilliant, wonderful song this is. I just want to sing along with it at high volume, but hey, I want to do that with all John Mayer songs! :D

3x5 | Reviewer: rachel | 1/8/11

to whoever was asking what it meant by the title: 3x5 is a size of a picture, so he's talking about how he's not going to take anymore pictures, just going to see the world with his own two eyes, and the girl is going to have to come with him to see it.

Stupendous! | Reviewer: Alicia | 10/4/10

This song is so amazing, but isn't all of John's songs. I'm serious, this song makes me happy and I just want to sing with him. He just make music worth listening to. I have Room For Squares, Continuum, Battle Studies, and Disc 1 and 2 when he was live at the Nokia Theater. He is one of my favorite vocal artist and gutarist. I just love listening to him. His song writing is beyond comprehension to me.

Meaning | Reviewer: Floor | 9/24/10

I like the song, I've translated the whole lyrics to my language (Dutch) But I really don't know what he means with 3x5. That really anoyes me becouse IT'S THE TITEL.. Please, can anybody tell me what is means..

Amazing | Reviewer: Anisa | 7/9/09

room for squares by john mayer is one of the best album ever released. so easy listening- yet with such smart and meaningful lyrics. and really beautiful melodies.. i can't stop listening to songs like 3x5 and my stupid mouth. johncmayer is a genius!

:D | Reviewer: Megan | 2/24/09

I have to tell you, I absolutely LOVE John Mayer. He is about the only artist I've ever heard that uderstands what music is supposed to bring to the listener. All of his songs make sense, unlike the ones you constantly hear on the radio. I can't even describe what I feel when I listen to him. This song means so much to me, like so many others by Johnny. :]

Just another gr8 song by John Mayer..!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/18/09

His whispering voice make this song sound mystical. Guess what he wants to convey is said in one single line.,.. "Today I finally overcame
tryin' to fit the world inside a picture frame" .,.. thats it.,.. 3x5 refers to the dimensions of a photograph print. Personally i've felt how much of the real picture i miss trying to capture things on film.,.. Kudos Johnny...!!!

If only | Reviewer: Mandar | 11/29/08

If only i could express wot this song means to me.
John is an amazing artist, he understands the nerve of music. Especially his album "room for squares" is the most amazing work i have ever heard. The efforts put into each song is so visible with the feel you get while listening to them. 3x5 is THE SONG. every line is so jus insync wot the music and wow, i jus cant tell, you have to feel it, to know it

awesome | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/27/08

i have just recently became a huge john mayer fan but let me say that his songs are amazing and they relate to real life and you can understand his lyrics unlike some artists who cant even sing but say i kissed a girl or sings about money and instantly can have a number 1 he really gets into the heart of life i hope he comes out with a new CD in 2009

Amazing! | Reviewer: Mininger | 10/9/06

I love this song... it could possibly because I love sunsets and love songs... But it's a song that you can just close your eyes and sink into. Just Enjoy it!
