Life Is Wonderful  Jason Mraz

/ Jason Mraz / I don't really see what this song is about besides from
/ Life is Wonderful / being an innocently overt appreciation of life. I think
/ Mr. A-Z / it's mostly just about Mraz' wonderful wordplay, and I
/____________________/ really think he has made up some great lines in this song!

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
 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 life is wonderful
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
Ah-la-la-la-la-la life is wonderful
Ah-la-la-la-la-la life goes full circle
Ah-la-la-la-la-la life is wonderful
It is wonderful
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 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-la-la life is wonderful

It is so meaningful
It is so wonderful
It is meaningful
It is wonderful
It is meaningful
It goes full circle
Full circle
