I can’t think of an explanation to justify how I feel about this.
I re-post. But I thought it deserved to be revisited.
Unbelieveable. He’s back, and he’s blogging. Er, at least he blogg*ed*
I am so grateful.
Thank you John. It’s been too long.
I hear you loud a clear john! atta boy.
I anxiously await your delivery…
Available to most everyone, but relatively very rarely enjoyed.
You know what I’m talkin’ about, right John?
‘I wanna tell you that I think about you every night. I mean this. I think about you every night when the house gets quiet, and the workday is done, and it’s down to me and a guitar, and my brain and my heart and my experiences. I think about you every night. And all I think about is proving the world wrong and you right! I think about living up to the standard that I might have somehow set for myself. And I don’t think it’s an impossible standard, I think it’s very possible. I think you just stay vulnerable. The stakes get higher, but you just stay as vulnerable— let the stakes look weird, let everything else look weird. But I wanna stay vulnerable and I think about you every night I pick up a guitar. And I play and I sing things I’m not quite sure of yet, because all I wanna do is give you twelve more songs. 12 more ideas. 12 more melodies. I wanna see you all again, and I know the only real ticket to seeing you all again is to live up to the standard of being a musician, and putting everything you have into your music. And I want you to know I might take a day off tomorrow, but after that, I really want you to know this, I couldn’t be more honest and serious and open and true right now. Pacific standard time, if you look at your clock and it’s between the hours of 11.PM and 5.AM I want you to know that I’m thinking about you. Until the moment you hold this record in your hands, I want you to know that I’m thinking about you. Will you do that for me? It’s true. And if you can’t sleep because you’re counting down the hours till the next thing you gotta do or the next day, just know that I’m awake, in a little tiny room with my Blackberry off, working on the next tour, the next trip around the world, the next time that I can see you. Because I don’t want wanna see you again until I can give you 12 more songs, because I know from the bottom of my heart I can give you 12 of the best songs I’ve ever written in my life for you. Just know that this is me. When you see my name printed, that’s just some random letters that spelled my name. This is me. I love you, I thank you, and I send this last part of this song out to you.’ - John Mayer, “Gravity” speech, MCC2.
please keep following! I will do the same!
loveandmemories said: i also miss his tweets!! :( he was so brutally honest, i loved it.
I never was on twitter… But I did come across a couple of his tweets a few times. I just love the way he expresses himself. Brutal honesty it is! I think he’s so awesome for speaking his mind. Took the words right out of my mouth.
So through research, I’ve come to better understand why John has left us. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to see his return.
Just because I understand, doesn’t mean I agree with it..
I myself let my blog drift for a while because of overwhelming criticism and a few people reading too far into things. HOWEVER. I have returned; a better blogger for it.
So john, as always if youre out there; Just give us some sort of Sign (or an email);), I’d like to discuss it.
Well I can dream can’t I?
Keep following, liking and reblogging. With your help, I hope to attract John’s attention to the void our lives!
Day 1 of my John inspired tattoo.His words penetrated my heart, seemed only right that they should penetrate my skin..
On the above portion, I chose to incorporate only two blocks, where John has three… Seems only natural. Just something to humble myself.
you can kind of see I encorporated the ‘JM broken heart’ logo on the top of my wrist. (It sits in place of the ‘V’ in the world ‘LOVE’ that sort of melts out of the stripes.
(sorry for the shot-y quality)
