Make It Mine
Jason Mraz Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you

Listen to your voice
The one that tells you
To taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap in, the net will appear

I don't wanna wake before
The dream is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I, I know it

I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it's lifting you up, up, up and away
And over to a table at the Gratitude Cafe

And I am finally there
And all the angels they'll be singing
Ah la la la, ah la la la
I la la la la love you

I don't wanna break before
The tour is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I, I'll own it

I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

And timing's everything
And this time there's plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that everyone's emitting

Well I don't wanna wait no more
Oh I wanna celebrate the whole world
I'm gonna make it mine
Oh yes I'm following your joy

I'm gonna make it mine
Because I, I am open
I'm gonna make it mine
That's why, I will show it

I'm gonna make it all mine
Gonna make, gonna make, gonna make, gonna make, make it, make it mine




Oh mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

Overall Meaning

In the song "Make It Mine," Jason Mraz encourages his listeners to wake up and make their dreams a reality. The opening lines question how anyone can sleep at a time like this, suggesting that it is important to take action in the midst of our waking lives. Mraz goes on to encourage listeners to listen to their inner voice, the one that encourages them to take risks and venture beyond their comfort zones. He tells listeners to leap into life with the confidence that the net will appear, inspiring them to take bold and courageous steps toward their dreams.


Mraz then shifts into a reflection of his own life, describing how he keeps his life on a "heavy rotation" and works to keep the people around him "up, up, and away." He sings about arriving at the Gratitude Cafe, where he is surrounded by angels singing and a deep sense of love. He recognizes the timing of the moment and the energy being emitted by those around him, encouraging listeners to find balance and excitement in the present moment.


Ultimately, Mraz expresses a deep desire to make his dreams a reality, celebrating the beauty of life and following his joy. The chorus repeats the phrase "I'm gonna make it mine," emphasizing the importance of taking ownership of one's life and pursuing one's dreams with intention and purpose.

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don't wanna wake before
The dream is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I... I know it
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it's lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at the gratitude cafe

And I am finally there
And all the angels they'll be singing
Ah la la la ah la la la I la la la la love this

Well I don't wanna break before
The tour is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I... I'm alone and
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

Timing's everything
and this time there's plenty
I am balancing
Careful and steady
And reveling in energy that everyone's emitting

Well I don't wanna wait no more
Oh i wanna celebrate the whole world
I'm gonna make it mine
Oh yes, I'm following your joy
I'm gonna make it mine
Because I... I am open
I'm gonna make it mine
That's right... I will show it
I'm gonna make it all mine
Gonna make, gonna make, gonna make, gonna make it, make it, make it mine
All mine
Yes I'll make it all mine
