You and I Both

I just woke up from a restless night of very little sleep.  Normally, I would be complaining about it.  In fact, I feel a little hung over right now, just from the fact that I only got a couple of hours of real sleep.

But I am so grateful for the sleep that I did get.  Specifically, the very real-seeming dreaming I had during that couple of hours...

I dreamed that I was at a Jason Mraz concert.  My husband handed me my guitar, and I started playing "You and I Both" from the audience when Jason started playing it.  He then walked over to were I was-- I of course had great seats, very near to the stage because, well- this was a dream after all!-- and all of the sudden, I was mic-ed and plugged in.  Jason and I were magic together.  Dreamy, I guess you could say! 
 
Jason was so impressed by me- either by me personally, my guitar playing, or my singing~ it's not clear which- that he had to take an immediate break and have the opening band play a few songs so he could hang out with me for a little off-stage banter.

In real life, I've loved Jason since I heard this song when his first full length cd came out.  Now, several cds later, he's a big huge star and our relationship isn't quite as strong.  I'm not as loyal of a fan as I used to be because I know he has so many others out there.  And they're pretty much all younger than me.

But I was reminded of my original true love for Jason last night.

What does this dream mean? That Jason misses what we used to have together, hence the song choice?

So let me make this clear- Jason, I do still love you.  I bought my latest Taylor Nylon because I loved the sound of yours so much.  Next time you're in Dallas, please give me a heads up and I'll bring it to your gig and play with you.  "Cuz you and I both loved, what (you and ) I dreamed of..."

That's a wonderful dream.

Man that guy's got some pipes! I've only recently jumped on the Jason Mraz wagon. Really like his stuff.

And I bought my Taylor 612ce for a similar reason. I like the sound Dave Matthews gets with his Taylor. I've had mine for about three years.

Sadly, I'm gonna have to sell it. The economy has finally taken hold of me. :(

What a great dream. A duet between you and Jason would sound am(r)azing ;)
I got into Mraz when he was relatively unknown in the UK a few years ago after a conversation that went sort of like this:
"jason mraz is touring let's go see him pleasepleaseplease"
"jason...who?" *thinks* "wasn't he on that mix cd you made me?"
"osdjf nva yes. here. listen to this album for FIVE MINUTES and tell me one good reason why you WOULND'T want to see him live!"
"ooh ok."
*five minutes pass*
"alrighty, i'm convinced. when is it?!"
Like you though I have to admit my Mraz love has been on the downlow of late. Thanks for the reminder of the greatness that is Mr A-Z
