Yesterday, I read an article about John Mayer. having never heard of him before, I decided to sample some of his music. It’s simple, very acoustic and just great. For those of you who can, catch him on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on the 19th of this month. Of the few songs that I’ve heard so far, this is one of my favourites:

Back to You

John Mayer

Back to you

It always comes around

Back to you

I tried to forget you

I tried to stay away

But it’s too late

I’m so good at forgetting

And I quit ever game I play

But forgive me, love

I can’t turn and walk away

Back to you

It always comes around

Back to you

I walk with your shadow

I’m sleeping in my bed

With your silhouette

Should have smiled in that picture

If it’s the last that I’ll see of you

It’s the least that you

Could not do

Leave the light on

I’ll never give up on you

Leave the light on

For me too

Back to me

I know that it comes

Back to me

Doesn’t it scare you

Your will is not as strong

As it used to be

Some other nice tunes are Love Soon and Your Body is a Wonderland. That last song is one of the few I’ve ever heard that speaks of such a topic without being lewd. You might not agree, but that’s my opinion. My apologies for the popups that will appear when you click on the links.
