0% Interest - Jason Mraz

words by jason mraz & ariel quirolo
music by jason mraz

our friends on the front porch telling jokes and they swing swiftly towards happier times

expending lines and finding more energy for the effort and getting distance from that front porch spotlight


but us we found peace in shadows long enough to see the monsters rise


candy's got some space to fill in her daydreams living high on yesterday's lie

talking to me about some 0% interest and how she got a better deal than the next guy



and the way the lightning shocked us when we were lost and looking down that long missouri highway your hair was longer then and now I remember



oh the roads unencumbered by cats they're burning like wet matches thru my miracle mile mind

you left your thumbprint inside me now for months it seems but mine only brushes your soft surface


and somehow it leaves me listless, my tongue curls under my lips oh yes


so I cant speak to tell you of the months before I met you



and the way the truth it locked us right about the time after the lightning shocked us

when we were young and missing
round that small new england byway our lives they were sheltered then and I now I remember



well its not even being about that anymore I gotta get you down


those tiny fragments of perfection they please me in a time unchanged when its not the same beginning


or along awaited end... if I knew all the words I would write myself out of here


if I was all the colors I would paint you pretty in gold in a picture so I'm told little sister


so now I'm sold little sister why don't you tell me about the sunsets in sweden and the laws of eden


and how you were the rock of gibraltar and how they called you foxy


well that's another whole box of pandora's, that's another whole box of them ties


slide your foot off the gas before we crash right back into the median


it separates our house from the middle of the street... talking about our house



is on the front porch telling jokes and they swing swiftly towards happier times


expending lines and finding more energy for the effort and getting distance from that front porch spotlight


but us we found peace in shadows long enough to see a monster die.


we all need to find a little space in our daydreams long enough and just so long.


long enough, just as long, just so long as its long enough is it long enough?


Is it long enough for me? Long enough for me to chew on.


If it isn't... if it isn't .. if it ain't if it don't if it can't then it wont.

And that's just the way that it goes.
