A Song on the Loop


John Mayer is going to Manila and will be having a concert this Friday. I wish to see the concert but I feel it would be best that I shouldn't. In a sea of screaming John Mayer fans and people seemingly lost in lovers' lane, I don't wanna be another social casualty or however you wanna call it. I love John Mayer since I heard the song "No Such Thing".

He's such a blabbermouth like me. I don't think we would be able to stop talking if I encounter him and be given the chance to do so, but he would be sinfully attractive and smoothly sarcastic that I might be praying for my own social demise. But who knows, I was just hoping that he was true to the essence of his songs, and I love them, so technically I love his thoughts. It makes perfect sense.

I stumbled upon a video on youtube, I think one of his live concerts where he was just blabbering away and he was coming up with lyrics and singing them as well and this song really affected me in such ways.

I took the liberty of copying the lines and posting it here thanks to MelleB90 from youtube who was seemingly meticulous in providing the lyrics to the public and the wonderful video along with it.

My Stupid Mouth

Added lyrics :

I'm sorry, if you could see inside my skull
You would know I've got the best of all intentions,
You know I'm sorry
I feel like it's my responsibility to fill the silence all the time
Only then do I talk off a ledge do I fall fall fall...
Oh, dahdah daahh dah...

I'm sorry and it's just my mouth and sometimes my head
but never my heart, never my heart
always a reason, always a reason
Oh dahdah daahh, hooohooo ooohooo...

Always my mouth never my head
maybe I'll stay home tonight and rent a movie instead
'cause all that I know is when I take this thing out
there's always some reason I got to explain what it's about


if you could see inside my head now oh,
you would know about me
you would know about me

-I just told someone the other day that-
getting your way inside is, getting your way inside is like piloting your way through a minefield.
-just a little ring, just a little circle that you got to get through-
once you're through you know then you're through with wondering
what's this boy about and what is he putting me on for 
it's a long ride through, yeah

but you'll be happy once you do.

-there's a song about that long ride through and how some people just never make it and that's alright-

oh, my stupid mouth has got me in trouble and now I
I said to much again to a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see she was offended
She said "well anyway..." just dying for a subject change.

Oh, another social casualty score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips, she looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly,
An indelible line was drawn between what was good, what JUST slipped out and what went wrong

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do

I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me, I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me.

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now...
Starting now.

One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard.
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked
I just wanna be funny
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

I'm never speaking up again
it only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery

than she desert me

oh i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
i'm never speaking up again
Starting now...
Starting now.


is it all on me?

is it really all on me?
are you saying it's got nothing to do, nothing to do, nothing to do with a little bit of chemistry?
how is it that I can be so cool to one man
I can turn around and be so cruel to another
it's got to be the way they understand
that it's a little bit crazy inside sometimes...
Ooohooohoooo...
