Love is a four letter word

The opening track off this, Jason Mraz's fourth album, has him singing these lines: 'I see birds fly across the sky, yeah, and everyone's heart flies together.

Food is frying and people smiling, like there is no other way.’ It’s extraordinarily sloppy writing from a man who refers to himself as a singer-songwriter. 

What makes it worse is how the entire album is supposedly inspired by love. Sample this from The Woman I Love: ‘Maybe I annoy you with my choices, well, you annoy me sometimes too with your voice.’ Or this, from Who’s Thinking About You Now?:

‘I want to be the one to help you ignore Mr. Loneliness peeking his head into your door.’ Skip it and listen to some vintage Stevie Wonder instead.
