John Mayer has transcended to another level. A case in point is the song “You’re Gonna’ Live Forever in Me.”

What a beautiful ballad! It’s provocative and soulful…a song about death and the memories that remain. Take a look at these lyrics:

A great big bang and dinosaurs
Fiery raining meteors
It all ends unfortunately

But you’re gonna live forever in me
I’ll guarantee, just wait and see

Parts of me were made by you
And planets keep their distance too
The moon’s got a grip on the sea

And you’re gonna live forever in me
I guarantee, it’s your destiny

Life is full of sweet mistakes
And love’s an honest one to make
Time leaves no fruit on the tree

But you’re gonna live forever in me
I guarantee, it’s just meant to be

And when the pastor asks the pews
For reasons he can’t marry you
I’ll keep my word in my seat

But you’re gonna live forever in me
I’ll guarantee, just wait and see

Mayer’s on another level, standing next to the great songwriters. He’s become an Uber man, carefully crafting his poetic words. Age and wisdom have collided with musical talent.

The critics have long been divided on Mayer. Some people (see women) love his obsession with romantic topics. While others (red pill men) feel that he goes overboard on the topic. For example, there’s never been a straight man that sang “Your Body is a Wonderland” with conviction.

However, the musician needs time. As with any GREAT MAN, wisdom comes with age. You need to experience the vicissitudes of life. You need to see the Grand Canyon of Pain and the Great Wall of Suffering.

John’s officially there…and America needs him right now. We’ve seen too many musicians “check out” recently: i.e. Prince, David Bowie, B.B. King, Don Henley, Tom Petty, etc. So what’s needed is a new poet: a man of the new millennia.

A note to the nostalgic: Remember that the great men of a generation are like ocean waves; they soar and crash…until another wave comes to take their place.

At any rate, here’s a link to the wonderful video…enjoy!
