Letters for David Archuleta

Posted by djafan on Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Jason Mraz, one of David’s deservedly fave artists, just released a new single and video. Too new to ever fly under the radar of YouTube for use in a fan video (I’m still working on that idea) but lyrically a perfect tribute as it is. I love the song and the images of letters goes well with this recent news from Kariontour on twitter.  Enjoy!

    Lyrics to “I Won’t Give Up”
    Jason Mraz

    When I look into your eyes
    It’s like watching the night sky
    Or a beautiful sunrise
    Well there’s so much they hold
    And just like them old stars
    I see that you’ve come so far
    To be right where you are
    How old is your soul?

    I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up

    And when you’re needing your space
    To do some navigating
    I’ll be here patiently waiting
    To see what you find

    ‘Cause even the stars they burn
    Some even fall to the earth
    We’ve got a lot to learn
    God knows we’re worth it
    No, I won’t give up

    I don’t wanna be someone who walks away so easily
    I’m here to stay and make the difference that I can make
    Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts
    We got yeah we got a lot at stake
    And in the end, you’re still my friend at least we didn’t tend
    For us to work we didn’t break, we didn’t burn
    We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
    I had to learn what I got, and what I’m not
    And who I am

    I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up
    I’m still looking up

    I won’t give up on us
    God knows I’m tough, he knows
    We got a lot to learn
    God knows we’re worth it

    I won’t give up on us
    Even if the skies get rough
    I’m giving you all my love
    I’m still looking up

    Abrra…I have a question that you may be able to answer. I’ve had David’s vlog — audio (from the candy jar) on my ipod for a year or so. Only the first 30 seconds plays however. I noticed that if I play it on my computer or on my itunes site , the entire 7 plus minutes plays. Can’t figure out what the problem is. I even redownloaded it and put it back on my ipod, but it still does the same thing. Any ideas?

    Spirit
    I don’t know any reason why it would stop short on your device. Perhaps it got corrupted somewhere in the transfer to the device? If you can post a link to the video blog, I will make a new mp3 for you. I’d like to know what file it was from the Candy Jar so that I can check it out.

    Angelica,

    Loved this song. I think David will be shocked to see how many of us won’t give up on him. How could we, when he is the embodiment of all things good in this world. I can’t think of anyone with more talent, humility, compassion, selflessness, and not to even mention how beautiful he is on the outside. Even if he looked like a troll, all of the rest is worth waiting for. I can only imagine how much more amazing he will be when he returns. It may take us 2 years to prepare for the changes that will take place. I can hardly wait.

That’s 3 years! (except for an Live recording EP) We really got spoiled with the amount of music David put out in a short time!

  20. I turned a deaf ear to my children on occasion when they reminded me that there are other singers out there to listen to.

    Jason Mraz would have been among those I would have spent more time listening to and now I will do just that. I believe that my children were correct and one needs a balanced life even in music. Well I would have it another way though…

    I was just reading Wikipedia about Jason Mraz and he has a full life, with a healthy lifestyle eating mostly raw vegan foods and even owns an “Avocado” farm. He is a great humanitarian that has not gone unnoticed as we can see by the list of awards in his name accomplished while setting out to protect the earth. Is there anything more that we need? Well…;)

    I found this most interesting…”The rhythm of the heartbeat takes precedence on the record” on which “I Won’t Give Up” is the newly released single.

    This is a nice song by Jason Mraz. The tone and mood are somewhat similar to WAIT. Its interesting to note that Jason has not released anything for several years and now he releases this single and I wouldn’t be surprised if it shot up the charts. Its frustrating in that although his song is good, imo it pales in comparison to David’s WAIT. Its all about the promo I guess. JMHO. Have a good day.

    “Its frustrating in that although his song is good, imo it pales in comparison to David’s WAIT. Its all about the promo I guess. JMHO.”

    I share your opinion. I read the lyrics posted by Bebe first. Then took a listen to Mraz and it was pleasant enough but wasn’t able to listen to the entire song. What can I say. I went back and read the lyrics again and they’re beautiful the voice just doesn’t connect.

    Angelica’s analysis of Wait, David’s message for us to “Wait” is exactly what I plan to do. I’ll do my best to keep his name out there. With a full time job and huge family I don’t have time or desire to start listening to other artists. I have been listening to David sing and talk, I can do that until he comes back 🙂 I guess I will remain unbalanced lol.

    So this must be what the acting lessons are about. I say yay! I went to his Anaheim Grove show. At the VIP I told David if he were going to be in a movie or on television we would support whatever he did. Actually speaking to David caused me to go into a time warp or a parallel universe. I thought at the end of my little speech he was looking at me like I came from Mars. Maybe it was just me. David does that.

    Also, a belated thank you to all the administrators on this site for keeping it open during David’s mission trip. After his announcement at the SLC concert, I came onto The Voice the next morning looking for solace. When the site opened, all that appeared was a solid blue background with the burning candle and sidebar pictures. I panicked thinking that everyone was gone and the site had gone into a holding pattern. After sitting in shock for a minute, I refreshed the page, and there you all were! It was such a wonderful relief.

    a couple of years off to do missionary work.. He’s a very selfless and generous young person”

He was not going to say anything to him. After a while however, when my son turned around he and DA practically walked into each other.

    My two college age daughters, when talking about the boys that really appeal to them, they refer to them as “sparkly” boys. When I asked them what that meant, they said it was hard to explain, but that there is just this light about them and this sparkle in their eyes. May I submit to the jury #53!

    This new 17-minute tribute video is a first-time view for me. Fans from all around the world pay tribute to all that David means to them. A tear-jerker for sure.
