Song Lyric Sunday – In Repair by John Mayer

When I first decided on the theme for this week, I really didn’t have a song chosen.  I didn’t at first realize how difficult it would be to find a song to fit the theme, especially the way I was thinking of it.  There’s many breakup songs that could fit the theme, but that’s not necessarily where I wanted to go.

Sometimes, the best thing to do is to scan every song in my iTunes library until I happen upon one that works.  It usually doesn’t work, but yesterday it did.

I’ve said before that John Mayer is one of my favorites.  His lyrics and talent blow me away.  There’s an 18 minute video on his Vevo that talks about how this was written and recorded in one day.  I wanted to focus on the song itself, so I used a different video, but if you have time and want to look it up, I think it’s pretty amazing.

I know when he’s singing about his heart in the song, he’s not necessarily singing about it the way it had meaning for me this week, but this song really hit home for me, what with my fiance’s surgery.  I know he wouldn’t appreciate too much information here, but this has been something he’s been dreading for much of his life, and I’m so happy he’s finally on the other side of things and healing more and more every day.

I think life has a way of making things happen exactly when they were meant to.  While it wasn’t ideal, I think it happened at the time in his life when I was here and could help him get through it.  I also believe it will allow us to spend many more years together.

So, once again, I’m dedicating this song to you, my love.  You’re in repair, but getting there every day.

In Repair by John Mayer
Lyrics by John Mayer
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Too many shadows in my room
Too many hours in this midnight
Too many corners in my mind
So much to do to set my heart right
Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

Stood on the corner for a while
To wait for the wind to blow down on me
Hoping it takes with it my old ways
And brings some brand new luck upon me
Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

And now I’m walking in a park
All of the birds they dance below me
Maybe when things turn green again
It will be good to say you know me

Oh it’s taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart’s advice
I should assume it’s still unsteady
Oh, yeah I’m never really ready, Oh, yeah, I’m never really ready
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there

I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
I’m in repair, I’m not together but I’m getting there
