I’m Yours Lyrics

Well you done, done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
And now I’m trying to get back

Before the cool done run out
I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s going to 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 God-forsaken right to be loved, love, love, love, 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

And do do do do you….
But do ya want to come on, scooch on over closer dear
And I will nibble your ear
So du ba ba….

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see you clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass, so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I’m 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

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 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 oh this is our fate, I’m yours-ah!

I’m Yours – Step 1

Let’s find out how to write a hit melody! The secret is in rhythmic repetition and how the intervals relate to the chords.

To understand this we start by studying the nursery rhyme Itsy Bitsy Spider, which is actually more complex than I’m Yours.

I’m Yours – Step 2

Let’s put 6 massive hits under the microscope that all use nursery style melody writing.

They all do so over the very catchy I V VI IV progression.

I’m Yours – Step 3 (Free Preview)

The time has come to learn how to play I’m Yours by Jason Mraz.

I actually recorded this before Jason released his official version and had my own first youtube hit with it.

Go to I’m Yours step 3.

I’m Yours – Step 4

In this step, we look at the M8. This section provides some much-needed tension!

Without it, I’m Yours may have been a bit too nursery rhyme like.

Go to I’m Yours step 4.

I’m Yours – Step 5

It’s time to play the complete song. A simple chart is provided in the key we think of as we use a capo.

Use the video with me and the singer(s) to help you learn this one guitar arrangement.

Go to I’m Yours step 5.

I’m Yours – Step 6

Let the real learning begin! By creating a simple 2nd guitar part we can move around the fret board.

Without a capo we are now in the key of B. It’s only four chords but the key is tricky…

Go to I’m Yours step 6.

I’m Yours – Step 7

Let’s work on a 2nd guitar part for the M8 section. As you’ve already done this for the verse it is not too difficult.

To challenge you a bit more, I’ve made another example, it’s a quick one…

Go to I’m Yours step 7.

I’m Yours – Step 8

Let’s play this song as a band.

You know what I’m going to play, it’s up to you to provide the variation by moving around the fret board in an improvised way.

Go to I’m Yours step 8.
