Life Is Wonderful Lyrics - Jason Mraz

Review The Song (43)



It takes a crane to build a crane
It takes two floors to make a story
It takes an egg to make a hen
It takes a hen to make an egg
There is no end to what I'm saying

It takes a thought to make a word
And it takes some words to make an action
It takes some work to make it work
It takes some good to make it hurt
It takes some bad for satisfaction

La la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Al la la la la

It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother
And it takes some old to make you young
It takes some cold to know the sun
It takes the one to have the other

And it takes no time to fall in love
But it takes you years to know what love is
It takes some fears to make you trust
It takes those tears to make it rust
It takes the dust to have it polished

Ha la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is so full of
Ah la la la la la la life is so rough
Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ah la la la la la la life is our love
Ah la la la la la

It takes some silence to make sound
It takes a loss before you found it
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to make you care
It takes a hole to make a mountain

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful
Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle
Ha la la la la la life is wonderful
Ha la la la la la life is meaningful
Ha la la la la la life is wonderful
Ha la la la la la life it is...so... wonderful
It is so meaningful
It is so wonderful
It is meaningful
It is wonderful
It is meaningful
It goes full circle
Wonderful
Meaningful
Full circle
Wonderful

wonderful if we take it as wonderful | Reviewer: tsechoe | 12/28/12

i just fall in love with the lyrics...
its making us think deeply when it calls "LIFE IS WONDERFUL" over and again.
life is indeed wonderful if we take it that way,
i would say EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON, even bad thing happen for good

correction | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/11

following passages make more sense, don't they?

"It takes a night to make it dawn
And it takes a day to make you yawn brother"


and:

"It takes some silence to make sound
And it takes a loss before you found it
And it takes a road to go nowhere
It takes a toll to show you care
It takes a hole to see the mountain"

AMAZING SONG!!! | Reviewer: Jak | 12/17/10

...It's Storey as in floors of a house.

This song is EPIC! MR A-Z is Jason's best yet, but I just love any song that he does, he could cover any Justin Bieber or Eurovision song and I would still LOVE IT!!! Jason Mraz is my GOD!!!

I think that the song is just about the balance of the world.... everything has its opposite, without one we cant have the other. everything runs full cirlce, one perfect circle, and thats why its wonderful

It's not really a love song | Reviewer: JD | 7/25/10

I don't think this song is a "love Song" at all. I think it's clearly a song about life's ups and downs that we need to cherish... they make us stronger and better. like "it takes a hole to make a mountain" so that even at your lowest point, you can reach the sky. Life, in and of itself IS wonderful.....

So enthralling | Reviewer: Anne | 12/13/09

Oh i am so much in love with this song . . its deep and moving and lyrics are really profound you gotta make a sense of it . . . loved the second stanza especially! great listening . . Jason you rock!

How We Think So We Become | Reviewer: Marcia K. Voss | 10/21/09

This gorgeous relationship song by Jason Mraz is haunting. It is a mirror of life, complete with life's countless facets. Stanza 2 begins the philosophy that for every action, there is a reaction. In stanza 5, I especially love the reference to falling in love: "It takes some fears to make you trust, it takes those tears to make it rust, it takes the dust to have it polished." Beautiful! First time I've ever considered rust to be a positive thing since it can lead to polishing, refining a relationship.. Stanza 7 is another favorite: It does, indeed, take the time and sound of silence to eventually make a sound. "Be still and know that I am near." And one does search, long and wearily, before the treasure of love can be discovered. To continue, even to "go nowhere," we all need a path(road)... we all need a place to start our journey. Life Is Wonderful is a simple, thoughtful, amazingly accurate portrait of love, life and relationships! I'd love a "sit down" chat with Jason!

Stuff | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/2/09

Lyrics are important, and Mraz has stated that this song may be his favorite song he's written. I doubt it's meant as a musical joke, as the previous reviewer has stated, but one can definitely pull meaning regardless of *how* it was written. That's why it's art.

Person below me, shut up. | Reviewer: Malika | 10/3/09

I do philosophy at A level, and i've got to say to anyone that thinks this song doesn't mean anything or thinks it's cheesy is mistaken. It's not even about being meaningful or cheesy but what Mraz has done here is put all the blindly obvious things about the world in here to show you how meaningFUL the seemingly meaningLESS things are and appreciate everything about the world and how it works. I think it's an effective song and shows you how the things you don't ever think about (eg, the lyrics "It takes some good to make it hurt, it takes some bad for satisfaction") make everything work in the world. I think it's beautiful and it shows that there are people who just take the world for what it is and appreciate the good and take the good with the bad. It's all about language and anyone who doesn't understand what I mean by that, go on wiki and look at "logical positivism". Most people just don't realise how actions affect everything.. Good work Jason Mraz!

OMG | Reviewer: Pino | 9/12/09

Oh My God! I really don't understand you people! Don't you see Mr. A-Z is scrueing with you! This song is not sweet, not meaningful, but definiteley IS making music different. I mean, how can you make a song so funny and weard (in a good way). Wow. This song is AMAZING...I did nothing but laughing when i heard it and when i saw the lyrics, i just totally lost it! I just saw him sit with pen and paper and think "hmm, how can i make a song that some poeple think it emotional and everything, but i know its just a musical joke, so that i can piss my pants by reading all the reviews..." ( I know I did)

-xxx- still love y'all

It's not a cheesy song! | Reviewer: Lina | 8/27/09

This song is amazing. I don't understand how can you call it cheesy? It has so much meaning, just listen to it. It's saying that every big journey starts from one little step. It takes us to be little to become grown ups. And the words like "it takes a hole to make a mountain" means that sometimes to make something great you have to fall down. And this song has so much meaning. It's like saying that every thing is for a reason. You need to feel pain sometimes to appreciate happiness. So if you are too shallow to understand it's meaning don't say it's cheesy. By the way, lyrics are incorrect.

Simply Love This Song | Reviewer: Emmy | 8/21/09

I thought it was cheesy at first, but then, as I listened more, it sunk in. Now it almost makes me cry every time.

Just a few corrections (I tried to submit it officially, but it backfired on me)
"It takes two floors to make a STORY,"
"It takes the night to make it DAWN,"
"It takes a day to make you YAWN, brother,"

(: | Reviewer: S | 6/30/09

okay, you guys say it's a cheesy song, so i might as well give a cheesy review...

this song really did make me look at music differently. it's not just something you can dance to and be like 'oh, yeah this makes me wanna goooove' but it can be something that makes you think and makes you feel beautiful, and make you feel just... good. i feel like i can understand what jason is saying like he's sitting there explaining it to me, but he packs it into these beautiful one-liners. i love this song!!

Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/22/09

There are more meaning to the words than what they literally mean, or most of the times.
Also, how he made them rhyme and melody and all that junk and came up with this work of art is just crazy awesome
