Lyrics to Jason Mraz’ “If It Kills Me”

We Sing albumAlthough “I’m Yours” will always have a special place in my happy musical singing spot, “If It Kills Me” is my favorite song off of “We Sing”. Here are the lyrics. You can use them to write that love letter you’ve always wanted to send to the person you love who doesn’t know that you love him/her and would never suspect it because, gosh, you’re just such a good friend.

If It Kills Me
Jason Mraz

Hello
Tell me you know, yeah you’ve figured me out
Something gave it away
And it would be such a beautiful moment to see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now
And baby that’s a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing
Cause you and I, why we go carrying on for hours on end
We get along much better than you and your boyfriend
Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

How long can I go on like this?
Wishing to kiss you before I rightly explode?
And this double life I lead isn’t healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous
If I get caught I could be risking it all

Baby there’s a lot that I’ll miss in case I’m wrong
All I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

If I should be so bold
I’d ask you to hold my heart in your hand
Tell you from the start how I’ve longed to be your man
But I never said I would
I guess I’ve gone and missed my chance again

Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can’t say it after all we’ve been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
It’s a feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
I think it might kill me

And all I really want from you is to feel me
It’s a feeling inside that keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me
If it kills me
It might kill me

    Sometimes I swear Mraz is inside my head, writing songs about what he hears. It’s kind of eerie, but amazing at the same time. I’ve fallen in love with this song after the first listen.

    The best artists are able to take a common, shared human experience and make it sound intensely personal. At least, I think that’s what all my literature professors were trying to teach me.

    Mraz helps us to share our shared experiences. And he sounds lovely doing it.

    Thanks for stopping by,

    Yeah, this song pretty much sums up some feelings I have, hahaha. It was actually playing when I picked her up this morning…

    I saw him live two three days ago and I was blown away. It’s like he sings with his soul and opens up his entire heart as he does it. He conveys so much emotion in every song and they all hit so close to home. He makes me believe in love again.

    Hi Erica,

    Thanks for sharing your Mraz love with us. It makes me happy to know that many of the people who go to his shows get what he’s all about and aren’t spending the whole time playing with their camera phones, going to the bar for another drink, or chatting with their friends about what to do after the show. I mean, how can anyone see Mraz live and not be completely blown away?

    🙂

    I feel this song is about him being secretly gay. No?
