So, forget everything you thought you knew about Jason Mraz's hit song "I’m Yours."

Well, sort of!

"A lot of people think it’s a love song," Jason explains. "And singing and playing an instrument is my greatest love. It’s my first love; it’s my greatest joy. When I do it, I feel like I can completely disappear. So when I was writing this song, I was really writing to that great unknown, whatever it is that gives us ideas."

"And I said," he continues, "'Just make me an instrument, I am yours.' And then out comes the song!"

Swoon. Even Rach got chills!

(And yes, it’s technically still a love song.)
