Lyric of the Day: Jason Mraz, Michael Natter

Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth;
We got a lot to learn
God knows we’re worth it

-Jason Mraz, I Won’t Give Up : second chorus

New song blazing across the internet. Go Mr. A-Z :o) I like his music but have never been a diehard fan. This one kind of snuck up on me and charmed me from the bottom of my shoes up – may be my favorite song by him. It’s a lovely song to mark the time – anyone in a Class of 2012 is lucky.

[Note on March 6, 2012] I’ve edited the title of the songwriters to take off Matthias Bell. I’ve gotten a few angry comments, and the ironic thing is that I got my information originally off Wikipedia. I was suprised to find, when going back to check Wikipedia, that this blog post somehow became the cited source of that information… Man, the internet’s bizarre. Anyway, I realized the smart thing to do would be to check through the Harry Fox Agency, but the song isn’t listed. Now I’m all paranoid so I’m just going to leave it at the sure thing with Jason Mraz’s name. With all the online shadiness, I’m leaving it like that until I get an email from Mr. Mraz himself or something.

  1. Matthias Bell DID NOT WRITE THIS SONG! Why is he claiming that he did??

  2. Who is Matthias Bell? He did not cowrite “I Won’t Give Up”… it was cowritten by Michael Natter.

    • Sorry, but I’m just going to blame the sketchiness of online sourcing and the difficulty of finding reliable songwriter information. Please see edit note.

  3. Thanks for making the correction! Here’s the way to verify it… go to the ASCAP website. Here’s the link right to it.

    Thanks again.

  4. Matthias Bell is a liar who pretends to write songs he didn’t
