John Mayer - In Repair Lyrics




Too many shadows in my room
Too many hours in this midnight
Too many corners in my mind
So much to do to set my heart right
Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart's advice
I should assume it's still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

Stood on the corner for a while
To wait for the wind to blow down on me
Hoping it takes with it my old ways
And brings some brand new luck upon me
Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart's advice
I should assume it's still unsteady
I am in repair, I am in repair

And now I'm walking in a park
All of the birds they dance below me
Maybe when things turn green again
It will be good to say you know me

Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
Oh but if I take my heart's advice
I should assume it's still unsteady
Oh, yeah I'm never really ready, Oh, yeah, I'm never really ready
I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there

I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there

John Mayer In Repair Comments
  1. Lyndzee 11

    This song will always hold a special meaning to me. It takes me back to when I was desperately trying to get clean (not long ago) and learning to live life differently. Been clean and sober for 6 months now though.

    Please check out my new single if you liked this song:

  3. chris woosley

    Sounds very early 70's Clapton, especially the fade out

  4. Shin Tuấn Thành

    Too many shadows in my room
    Too many hours in this midnight
    Too many corners in my mind
    So much to do to set my heart right
    Oh, it's taken so long
    I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh, but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    I am in repair
    I am in repair
    Stood on the corner for a while
    To wait for the wind to blow down on me
    Hoping it takes with it my old ways
    And brings some brand new luck upon me
    Oh, it's taken so long
    I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh, but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    I am in repair
    I am in repair
    And now I'm walking in the park
    And all of the birds, they dance below me
    Maybe when things turn green again
    It will be good to say you know me
    Oh, it's taken so long
    I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh, but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    Oh yeah, I'm never really ready, yeah
    Oh yeah, I'm never really ready, yeah
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair
    I'm not together, but I'm getting there

  5. Daffri1 K

    phenomenal phrasing with the solo

  6. Nick Swatson

    I made a cover of this song on my channel... I’d really appreciate anyone who wants to check it out and tell me what you think! :)

  7. Raja Leonardy

    Too many shadows in my room
    Too many hours in this midnight
    Too many corners in my mind

  8. brian levi

    Currently going through a heartbreak! This song is helping me get through the grief!

  9. Scififan9000 :P

    How the fuck does this have so little views?!

  10. Yaduraj

    Whenever I feel my heart is damaged.I am here to REPAIR!

  11. Bread

    This is probably one of his most under-rated songs

  12. T Reasons

    "I'm never really ready" - the words I'm living by in 2019. John Mayer, forever the master of timeless relevant lyrics.

  13. FollowTheRhythm

    crazy but not so so. I Mean Hi's Mr John Mayer Nothing Can Go Wrong. ;)

  14. Elizabeth Casey

    Still listening to this in 2019 🙌🏼

  15. Saad Ibrahim

    In this song he does Bittersweet better than Verve

  16. Ericka Murria

    Still here in 2019

  17. Alejandro Blanco

    I don't want to say it's a rip off , but sounds so much like "Your time is going to come" by Led Zeppelin , I think it's even in the same tonality and tempo 😮

  18. ShivaSix

    Jesus...masses of people sit in songwriters workshops & think if they've got a hook...they've got a song?. They spend their lives consumed in theory pondering how to write a hit song & 99% never do & never will. A bug crawls up Mayer's ass, he calls a few friends, plugs in a few ancient pedals, creates an ungodly tone. Guy's are dicking around for years on Guitar Rig, Amplitube or whatever chasing a tone... Those dude's jam for a bit, Mayer sits on the crapper & jots down some lyrics and BAM!!! -WTF!!! - It's actually frigging hilarious!... Just goes to show ya - He's a special talent. Glad he got the hell out of Dodge. Everybody wants what he has & there ain't enough of it to go around. The energy Vampires almost got him!!

    Azmin

    Energy vampire... What we do in the shadows?

  19. God: The MISSiah!!!

    Fidi i LOVE u :) eternity in My new kingdom together FOREVER ❤ my new 🌎 for us. My joy 🌹God💋

  20. Antonio Lopes Corrêa

    anyone here in 2019?

    glad i'm not the only one

    sissimaus20

    For me its the song of the year!

  21. Benjamin Tsimialona

    its so weird to say the documentary of how this song was written, and then come back to listen to the gem that is the finished product. Good on ya john, Charlie, and Steve.

  22. Aimin W

    Each one of us is evolving all the time. Just a matter of realization

  23. Aimin W

    This song speaks all aspects of life: love, career, and mentality

  24. Dragonborn

    I'm not together, but i'm getting there.

  25. sharedremedy

    This album made me take John Mayer seriously as a musician.

  32. MrFuzkee

    It will be good to say you know me.... long time since

  33. Chase Lyons

    So crazy to me this isn't one of the more popular songs on the Album. The organ guitar pedal is insane!!

    Angryfan

    This version of the song is not that good compared to the live version I downloaded on limewire back in the day. Somehow the vocals on that version are better than this one.

  34. Brian Beard

  35. Rinnn Luo

    6 years and still my favorite :)

    Is it just me, or does anybody else get this Coldplay X&Y vibe goin' on through this song? ^^

  45. Nick Beers

    My ex recently dumped me for another guy after being together for almost 2 years. The song has been speaking to me on every level.

  46. Aldo Jurado

    Solo un gran ser humano se atreve a decir: I'm in repair

  47. Marije

    Too many shadows in my room
    Too many hours in this midnight
    Too many corners in my mind
    So much to do to set my heart right
    Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    I am in repair, I am in repair


    Stood on the corner for a while
    To wait for the wind to blow down on me
    Hoping it takes with it my old ways
    And brings some brand new luck upon me
    Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    I am in repair, I am in repair


    And now I'm walking in a park
    All of the birds they dance below me
    Maybe when things turn green again
    It will be good to say you know me


    Oh it's taking so long I could be wrong, I could be ready
    Oh but if I take my heart's advice
    I should assume it's still unsteady
    Oh, yeah I'm never really ready, Oh, yeah, I'm never really ready
    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there


    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there
    I'm in repair, I'm not together but I'm getting there

    Ninoska Smith

    Thank you so much for putting together the lyrics!❤👏👏

  48. Terence Williams

    John, you are 1 of the best

  49. Goof Ball Prodigy

    I found my voice as a singer song writer in high school through this song.
    Did this song by my self, mixed with tnt but I called kfc and also with sweet home alabamba, but changed it to the name of my home town.

    I won that day...

    One day I'll be up there with you john.

    I'll leave this town, and my music will heal others like this song did me....

  50. Peggy Farrell

  51. Ice TTY

    ❤️❤️❤️

  52. Hrithik Diwakar

    Underrated song, sadly this doesn't even have good live versions too..

    Sammy Cruz

    @caprice.t
    Thank you honestly not much better will i ever get past this hurrdle in my life

    caprice.t

    @Sammy Cruz things take time. it typically takes much longer to get out of a habit than it got to get in it. once your out, it can kick you back in. quite normal I'd suppose, considering it's a habit. i hope it's possible for you to atleast get some professional support? I wish you mucb strength and clarity regardless. if you've made some progress I'd be interested to know :)

    Sammy Cruz

    @caprice.t
    Wow didnt think people like your self existed ty for the encouraging words much appreciated

    Silvio Lopar

    @Sammy Cruz One of my best friends had a Drug Problem since he was 13... He is now 26 and 2 Years clean. You can do it <3

    Sammy Cruz

    @Silvio Lopar thank you for a total stranger to encourage is golden I appreciate that u took the time for the word s I will get there one day

  71. Carlos Gonzales

    Nvm i found it if anyone was wondering its "your time is gonna come" Led Zeppelin

    Da Spotz

    +Carlos Gonzales Well done! So similar!!!

    Alejandro Blanco

    Yeeesss , I wrote a similar comment before I stumbled upon this one...

  72. Carlos Gonzales

    PLEASE HELP ME!! I heard a song like this on the radio the backing track was almost identical i think it could be a rolling stones song. If anyone knows please reply! Thanks

  73. FantasticFlop

    I do like this song and John Mayer but i'm just curious is anyone here from Joey Graceffa's book?

  74. Claudia Prieto

    This song is me right now. I love this.

    Erick Martim

    Think at some point in life, this song can be all of us Claudia... It is me right now as well. And it sucks cause I've been here before, but oh well... 😂

    Douglas McConnell

    I feel like I'm in repair right now too..🤔

  75. Jeffery Waz

    Something we all go through at one (or more) point in our life. A reality check, w
    ell done John !!!!

  76. Bat Man

    This is how my life feels right now

    Angel

    are you repaired now?

    Kyle Brady

    Angel He could be wrong. He could be ready.

  77. Nabib Hossain

    John Mayer never disappoints. This has to be one of his best songs

  78. Bradley Smith

    One of my favorite solos of all time. Such restraint and allowing it to breath at first and then brief spurts of speed. Great phrasing.

    Jordann Lee

    @Bradley Smith much like one of his heroes mr Eric Clapton .

    MMorgattto

    his solo is really bugging me :O i dont understand which scale he uses and why :O does anybody know? i know the song is in a major but i dont think he solos there :S

    Rik Allen

    I don't know, but I do know there is a video of the making of this song that shows him tracking the solo...might help.

    MMorgattto

    i figured it with some help later. Its D major up to a point and then D Minor or D blues scale.

  79. shanej2012

    Great song

  80. Vanessa Matos

    amooooooooooooooooooooo

  81. alienlovecharm

    The pyramid on your one dollar bill! You know the one with the Masonic eye above it? yea that one.. Your work is never finished! Yep that's what that symbolizes!

    Joe Jr.

    @alienlovecharm What the fuck are you talking about?

  82. Mike Kablack

    that solo 

  83. kirk von Nordstrom

    STOOD on the corner for a while, to wait for the wind to blow down on me . . . . bring some brand new luck upon mee . . :)  :)

  84. 1971EXODUS

    ....ohhh---ist´s taking too long

  85. PainterFRO

    "People are always on their way down or on their way up and you never really enjoy
    the moment when its all put together.Because it probably never really is..those moments where things come apart is only 
    setting you up for that moment when you put it back together again and your so surprised
    that its coming back together again..there's this beauty in the idea of being in repair"- John Mayer

    Len D.

    when/where did he said that? 

    Jose Cristerna

    @Len D. may 25 2005,New York, check the In Repair session, one day one song, Its in youtube

  86. Liz Baker

    The solo blows me away.You'd be tempted to go sick on scales as the tempo and space available gives you an opportunity to go for it.He is neither excessive or defective in the notes chosen for the solo.It's just perfection!

  87. Charles Kent

    Wrote it in one day... What a musical genius! Keep inspiring us all to create John

  88. whytheturtles

    Ben Harper - Please Please me. Same

  89. Michael Day

    just brilliant

  90. Cat Inglis

    My favourite John Mayer song by about a million miles ... Love :0)

  91. MrPrincepi

    My boy John hit maker, fact!

  92. Onowa Reina

    ooohh jaime trop

  93. Frederik Thaysen

    1:18 - 1:30 sounds a lot like something that could have been on Coldplay's "X & Y" album... It's awesome though!!

    Mary Jozwiak

    Not really tho. John different level.

  94. xArbilx

    The opening verse hits me hard. Such an immense song.

  95. Nick Ridley

    as a beatles feel

  96. Howage1

    Goosebumps!!
