A Mrazian Blog Post for Some Friends

It’s been a weird couple of weeks. First, I get an email from the mother of a friend I haven’t talked to in ages, letting all his friends know that he had brain surgery, but was doing fine and was even cracking jokes.

Then, within 24 hours I find out that one friend is pregnant, and another one has died of a heart attack. That’s a little too much Circle of Life for me in one day. This is all within a month of another friend’s parent’s death, a co-worker’s biking accident death, and a couple of other pregnancies.

Is this what your 30s is all about? People being born and people dying or coming close to death? If so, I’d like my 20s back, please.

What’s a Mrazonite to do in times like this? A few dozen listens to “Song for a Friend” for one thing.

Song For a Friend
Jason Mraz

Well you’re magic he said
But don’t let it all go to your head
‘Cause I bet if you all had it all figured out
Then you’d never get out of bed

Well no doubt
Of all the things that I’ve read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping to be
Keep on keeping it real
‘Cause it keeps getting easier he’ll see

He’s the reason that I’m laughing
Even if there’s no one else
Said, you’ve got to love yourself

He said you shouldn’t mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble onto something
Better remember that it’s humble that you seek

You’ve got all the skill you need
Individuality
You’ve got something
Call it gumption
Call it anything you want
Because when you play the fool now
You’re only fooling everyone else
You’re learning to love yourself

Yes you are
You are
Yes you, you, you

There’s no price to pay
When you give and what you take
That’s why it’s easy to thank you
You, you, you, you, you

Let’s say take a break from our day and get back to the old garage
Becuase life’s too short anyway but at least it’s better than average
As long as you got me and I got you
You know we’ve got a lot to go around
I’ll be your friend
Your other brother
Another love to come and comfort you
And I’ll keep reminding
If it’s the only thing I ever do
I will always love you
You, you, you
You

It’s you I love, it’s you I love, it’s you, it’s you I love
It’s true I love, it’s true I love
It’s true, it’s you I love
It’s you I love, it’s you I love, it’s you, it’s you I love
I love you I do

Oh, it’s you I love

It’s you I love, it’s you I love, it’s you, it’s you I love
It’s true I love, it’s true I love, it’s true, it’s you I love
I’s you I love, it’s you I love, it’s you, it’s you I love

And I love I love I love
And I love I love I love
It’s you I love
It’s true
See my love my love my love
You see my love my love my love
It’s you my love my love my love oh

Climb up over the top
Survey the state of the soul
You’ve got to find out for yourself
Whether or not you’re truly trying
Why not give it a shot?
Shake it, take control
Inevitably wind up
Finding for yourself
All the strengths you have inside still rising

It’s you I love,
Lisa
