John Mayer - In The Blood Lyrics




How much of my mother has my mother left in me?
How much of my love will be insane to some degree?
And what about this feeling that I'm never good enough?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

How much of my father am I destined to become?
Will I dim the lights inside me just to satisfy someone?
Will I let this woman kill me, or do away with jealous love?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

I can feel the love I want, I can feel the love I need
But it's never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

How much like my brothers, do my brothers wanna be?
Does a broken home become another broken family?
Or will we be there for each other, like nobody ever could?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

I can feel the love I want, I can feel the love I need
But it's never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

I can feel the love I want, I can feel the love I need
But it's never gonna come the way I am
Could I change it if I wanted, can I rise above the flood?
Will it wash out in the water, or is it always in the blood?

    This song absolutely hit me like a ton of bricks. I don't even know what to say, but this song touched so deeply that I began to sob, because I could feel it in the pit of my stomach. How these words and the music can touch a person so deeply is amazing. That's that connection right there that we all share. As long as that emotion exists, we are all connected, even after we die.

  5. Billie V

    Sigh. The version by Home Free is SO. MUCH. BETTER.

    Amazing song. Questions I still ask myself at age 65. The love you want and are washed out in the blood of the One who died for us on the cross. HE will change you and satisfy your longings for love. I Know this is True. May you be given the desires of your heart. You are a seeker-you have the answer. JUST LOOK AND BELIEVE.

  27. Martinami

    John, you always foil my plans for taking my own life...

    😭🙏🏼❤️

  32. Christopher Jackson

    I did not know, until this song, that John had been directly following my life.

  33. Ale Torriggino

    In 2017, a month after it was released, my sister and I rented a car and drove from San Francisco down to San Diego while listening to this record. The sight of the oil pumps in the desert at dusk and this song's coda is something I'll never forget.

  70. Sheree Swanson

    John Mayer, please play this song when you are performing in St. Louis, MO in 2019! I was at Bourbon & Beyond (aka Mudfest 2018) and because I was with someone who made us leave early I missed you singing it and I will never forgive myself! Love you!

  71. Charlotte Shumate

    Makes you stop and think about your life and existence! Great song! ♥️👍🎶

  72. Sheri Lynn Bettevy

    Will it wash out in the water or is it always in the blood🎧🎧🎧🕯🕯🕯❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  73. KF Winterblue

    “I can feel the love I want, I can feel the love I need, but it’s never gonna calm the way the am.”
    Why an I so depressed? Why am I always hurt? Nothings happened... and all I feel is useless, and I feel like I could never be half the person my girl needs.

  74. Rita Bak

    Sok mindntől lehet jó egy dal . Nyilván a " jóság " szubjektív . Nem vagyunk egyformák , így az ízlésünk is különböző. Én imádom az olyan dalokat , amelyeknek lüktetésük van . Műfajtól függetlenül . Ez is olyan . Tetszik ! John hangszíne meg pláne bejön . Férfias, de mégis valahogy lágy .

  75. J024

    John was smart to add Sheryl Crow to this song. It adds a great harmony.

  76. Omo Myobya

    John Mayer just wrote my life story right here

  77. elia m

    How do you interpret "but its never gonna come the way i am"

    Elaine Grace

    elia m the love that he wanted and needed wont come to him because that ‘love’ can’t accept the way he was. So he was asking if he should change himself by going through the water (flood) that could clean his ego/past or avoiding it (rise above the flood), where he remains being himself and hence shows that it has always been in the blood - we can see he started of the song mentioning his family and coming from a broken family.
    Thats how I interpret it i could be wrong.

  78. Rose Waldeier

    The song I needed. For so long. Thank you, John.

  79. Gaming And vlogs Cruz
