Comfortable Lyrics - John Mayer

Review The Song (51)

I just remembered, that time at the market
snuck up behind me and jumped on my shopping cart
And rode down, aisle 5
you looked behind you to smile back at me
crashed into a rack full of magazines
they asked us if we could leave.

Can't remember, what went wrong last September
Though I'm sure that you'd remind me, if you had to

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in

I sleep with this new girl i'm still getting used to
my friends all approve, say she's gonna be good for you
they throw me, high fives

She says the bible is all that she reads
and prefers that I not use profanity
your mouth was, so dirty

sponsored links
Life of the party
and she swears that she's artsy
but you could distinguish
Miles from Coltrane

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in
she's perfect, so flawless
or so they say, say

She thinks I can't see the smile that she's fakin'
and poses for pictures that aren't being taken
I loved you
grey sweat pants, no makeup, so perfect

Our love was, comfortable and
so broken in
she's perfect, so flawless
I'm not impressed, I want you back.

So Sad | Reviewer: ElleJay | 9/12/13

I heard this Song one morning when listening to John Mayer, I was so astounded to find how the lyrics echoed mine and my true loves heartbreak story. You see we are so in love and always will be but because of our different cultures and family lives our love is Forbidden & when 

My love told his family of our love, wrongly expecting them to Except &  Understand that because we are so involve & perfect for each other in Our Own eyes, heart and soul , But all be it Still in his family's cultures & societys eyes Not So,  instead an Arranged relationship & marriage is what is expected and considered best and because of our family's love and devotion and sacrifices they have made for us we have to try and except and honour their wishes and do what will make them happy and proud so have agreed to their demands but just because now we are trying so hard to be & do what they want and to live the life with the partner they choose for doesn't mean we are Happy and We Do So Wish our Lives could be different. We both know in our hearts that will always always love one another unconditionally and wish so much to be back Together where we truly Belong but through a different type of love and honour we have to our Family's this cannot at the moment be so. So we live a false fake happy life to please everyone else.

John Mayer is so AMAZING | Reviewer: Lovely | 5/20/12

I was on a train one night on my way to work when i suddenly heard this song and i became teary-eyed. I can not, in anyway, relate to the song but I really felt his emotions in every word that he's singing. So heartbreaking. Not only this, but all of his songs can really make all his listeners feel the connection, the love, the pain, all emotions... A great singer, song-writer, guitarist. What more can you ask for? So talented, so Amazing... <3

Where Have I've Been? xD | Reviewer: Ignss | 12/21/11

I just heard this song when I decided to download some John Mayer albums. When I was listening on it on the bus I suddenly felt nostalgic of the lyrics. The song really does remind US of our past. Too bad I wasn't able to watch John perform here in Manila. *Sigh. It really reminds me of my true love named Eru. Eru Seki to be exact. She is the only girl who made me feel loved. I remember back then when I told her that I could change for her. She was the only girl that I met who told me "Silly you. You don't need to change because I've liked you for what you are." She now has a boyfriend but like the song of Gwen Steffani, we are still cool about. I still remember the day that I met her which was back in 2008, she was just at 4th year highschool and I'm currently on my 3rd year of college. I always remind her every year about it and whenever that part of the year happens (25th of October) I feel like I want her back. *Sigh. ^~^

my interpretation | Reviewer: Jascer Merced | 3/9/11

Can you see how john plays with the lyrics? If you read through, try picturing out that john is with two girls: his ex and his current girlfriend. He makes comparisons between his girlfriends and tries to put the lyrics in a conversational manner. It's like his sitting in front of the girls and tries to say or tell them how he feels about each of them. Obviously he still likes the ex, thus reminiscing the past they shared

different | Reviewer: mindy | 2/16/11

this song is so sweet and genuine :) but what i noticed the first time i heard it was how different it is to his usual style like using the violin, prominent background vocals, dragging words along with beat in a pattern. not my favourite jm song, but definitely a good one.

John,you really hurts me | Reviewer: igo | 9/11/10

i really don't know how to express my feeling towards my ex now..
shes just to simple,no make be honest she wasn't my type..and sometimes she did something stupid that makes me so hhh..but deep in my heart i love her,its just weird i think..
we broke up..a year has past and this feeling doesn't change at all..
she has someone new now,but im still cooling down..
when i listen to this song,im crying..remembering me to my ex..
john,why are you so briliant?! damn u john..hhaa

amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/1/10

this song is absolutely amazing. it's been one of my favorites since the first time i heard it about ten years ago. it's so honest and john's guitar skills are phenomenal. i had someone play this to me once before on guitar and i got goosebumps just listening to it. well done, john.

The Wonder :) | Reviewer: JAN :D | 6/12/10

Words are not enough to appreciate this. Listening to it, motivates you and relaxes your spirit. It motivates you to go with that someone. And it's a really good dong to reminisce about the good times, how it all began or sometimes, even the bad times. For me, It's either his best song about Love, or the Best song in all the world. He has more creations that have moved me.


comfortable | Reviewer: rachel | 6/13/10

this is my new favourite song. when i first heard a immediately clicked replay over and over again.
at first i thought the lyrics meant the girl died in the 9/11 attacks. but after reading these previous comments im not sure.
i guess it doesnt really matter :)
the lyrics and the music touch my heart, it is the perfect romantic song...

<3 | Reviewer: T | 5/10/10

i love this song.

Once you have found that someone, you can never forget about them, even if you find someone new, they are always in your head. Even if everyone else is telling you shes perfect and good for you, you just cant see it.

If a boy ever played this song to me, i think i might cry there and then haha

girl who wrote "beautiful lyrics" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/13/09

i completely agree with you, he is a amazing artist, and all of these teen stars today write very immaturely! John Mayer is a great inspiration and couldn't commend him more for the work that he does with his gifted talent. ROCK ON JOHN MAYER!!!!!!!!

(ps heart of life is AMAZING my play count is 267--i just got it 4 days ago...bahah! i love him!)

Beautiful Lyrics | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/1/09

These lyrics are more then just words, it is like he is telling a story and that is what makes his music genuinely unique, he doesn't just sing about ex bf & gf's in a immature way like most of the teen stars do today.He is great and will have even more success in the future! He truly is a fantastic artist!

I love this song. | Reviewer: Cheyenne | 12/8/08

This song is probably one of my favorites by John Mayer ( who I am a HUGEEE fan of ).

"She’s perfect/So flawless/I’m not impressed/I want you back"
I feel that every single day... No one will ever match up to my first love.

Dumb Luck. | Reviewer: B.N.S. | 7/17/08

I've always loved this song, but the live version is really why it has become my favorite JM song.
"That you were my first love, is just dumb luck, a technicality, you were ahead of me"...that line gives me chills and completely applies to the relationship i had with my first love.
so simple, but so heartbreaking.

Perfect | Reviewer: Britt | 2/18/08

I hung out with an old friend of mine the other night that i used to date.... being with eachother that night brought back so many feelings and memories, he told me there was a song by john mayer that always makes him think of me, called comfortable. That no matter which girl he dated, he would think about how 'comfortable' everything about us had been...It's exactly how we were; carefree, our first love, adored life, crazy, adventurous, spontaneous, COMFORTABLE! It really had come September, and i knew why it had to end, even though he didn't understand... all of the lyrics tug at my heart because of how exact they are, this song is so... perfect.
