I have loved Mraz music since I was a sophomore in high school. It’s chill; it’s happy; and it reminds me of summer.

Since the 2008 single “I’m Yours” released from his third studio album We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things, more and more people have hopped on the Mraz fan train.

And I’m happy for the company.

But Mraz is so much more than the radio favorite “I’m Yours” and even “Lucky {I’m in love with my best friend}.”

He has so many great songs– take the less-known “Live High,” for example. Here he literally walks around singing and playing guitar on the streets of France, producing great music:

Listen to some more of Jason Mraz, okay? He’s really even more amazing than you think he is :-)!

Live High

I try to picture the girl
Through a looking glass
And see her as a carbon atom
See her eyes and stare back at them
See that girl
As her own new world
Though a home is on the surface, she is still a universe

Glory God, oh God is peeking through the blinds
Are we all here standing naked
Taking guesses at the actual date and time
Oh my, justifying reasons why
Is an absolutely insane resolution to live by

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Takin’ it easy
Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously

And try to picture the man
To always have an open hand
And see him as a giving tree
See him as matter
Matter fact he’s not a beast
No not the devil either
Always a good deed doer
And it’s laughter that we’re making after all

The call of the wild is still an ordination why
And the order of the primates
All our politics are too late
Oh my, the congregation in my mind
Is this assembly singing of gratitude
Practicing their lovin for you

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Takin’ it easy
Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously

And singing out
And just take it easy
And celebrate the malleable reality
You see nothing is ever as it seems
Yeah this life is but a dream

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Takin’ it easy
Live high
