Details In the Fabric
Jason Mraz feat. James Morrison Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling on your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
If it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
And everything will be fine

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine
Everything

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling?

Are the things that make you blow
Hell, no reason, go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Everything

Hold your own
And know your name
Go your own way

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine?

Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
Hell no reason go on and scream
If you're shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
Of faulty manufacturing

Everything will be fine




Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold

Overall Meaning

The song "Details In The Fabric" by Jason Mraz is a motivational song that encourages listeners to calm down, breathe deeply, and face their problems instead of panicking and letting the situation take over. The lyrics suggest that if something is broken they should fix it, and if they're broken-hearted, they should face their feelings head-on. The song is ultimately uplifting, telling the listener that if they hold their own, know their name, and go their own way, then everything will be fine.


In the second verse of the song, Mraz asks a series of questions such as "Are the details in the fabric?" and "Are your thoughts results of static cling?" He suggests that things that make one panic are like static cling, and they need to understand that life is imperfect and full of surprises. Mraz also questions if Mother Nature's sewing machine is responsible for making the details and things that make people panic.
