This one’s for you John

jhnmyr:

I want to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the love and kindness you’ve shown me over the last week. It was such a wonderful and moving show of support that at times I almost felt embarrassed by it. (I don’t like taking up too much of the overall field of view.)

I also want you to know that I’m cool with things. Transitioning from bummed to inspired, and getting excited for you to hear this upcoming album while I dive deeper into another one.

Thanks again for the love.

John


Hi John, am sending you this poem - it has been written especially for you  by me. You inspire me in more ways tthan my physically challenged body hinders  me in the things it doesn’t let me do. Thank you for the inspiration, get well soon and keep up the music! Frederika x

HERO THAT YOU ARE
                          To John Mayer from Frederika Menezes

Wait…
Let not your face frown
Or your being despair
For, though a storm
Overcasts your days
And forces you
Where you are to stay
Remember what you already know…
Every storm stays only so long
And then the sun does shine again.

A smile will
Not allow tears to conquer…
Should you let yourself feel low
You’ll be letting the bad weather
Take control…

Tempests are greedy
They never are satisfied
Unless in their might
They are given power to
Rule a life!

There shall be rain
And thunder too
As the unfairness of this foul time
Passes over you…
You will not be sheltered
However much you wish otherwise
I know you know this…

Life is a rollercoaster
Ride of pouring skies and sunshine!

So, wait it out
It is the thing to do.
You are a fighter
Your strengths are in songs
You pen down and sing,
In delight you bring to
Others…

During the storm
Your voice will not be heard
Above the cold roaring wind
The thunder clapping…

Picture it like this:
Those thunder claps
That rain falling
It’s the storm applauding you
For braving it…
And as the hero you are
Once more shall you smile
Long gray days
Will be your past…

Bright sun rays will surely soon
Your future
Overcast…!

John Mayer | Can’t Take That Plane | Unreleased

According to John, this was to be the first track on Continuum. Many of his friends said it was not his strongest song of all time and didn’t fit with the other songs on Continuum so he pulled it a week before the release and made Waiting On The World To Change track 1.

I disagree with his friends.

MovesLikeMayer: OKAY GUYS!

reason141: hi… i’m new to tumblr.com. help me out here - have  a poem for John where do i send it so it’ll reach him maybe?

moveslikemayer:

So, getwellsoonjohnmayer, gl2enniv and myself are collaborating on this project together! Here are the new updates:

-Their project was based on specific types of signs, they wanted their fan made signs to say “_____ loves you, John” and you fill the blank with your name.

-Mine was more…

Keaton and my photo is submitted. And I am quite pleased with how it turned out.

Stay positive John

johnmayer:

Stay positive John… Its the one thing that gets one through the lows in life… You will be fine <3 you.

I have no idea how to introduce this post, so I’m skipping the first paragraph.

During rehearsal on Tuesday, it came to mind that I should see my throat doctor because something didn’t feel/sound right. I went in for a visit on Wednesday and a scope of my vocal cords revealed that the granuloma has grown back where it had mostly healed. This is bad news. Because of this, I have no choice but to take an indefinite break from live performing. Though there will be a day when all of this will be behind me, it will sideline me for a longer period of time than I care to have you count down.

I want to explain this a bit more in depth than I have in the past, because I know there’s some confusion as to what this condition is; a granuloma forms and continues to snowball because it’s in a spot where the vocal cords hit together and there’s no way to really give it a chance to heal without a good stretch of time and some pretty intensive treatment. In short, it’s one giant pain in the ass.

Okay, so here’s the plan… Born and Raised will be released as scheduled, but because I don’t make a very good anything-other-than-a-musician, I’m going to begin writing the next album very soon. I feel really vibrant as a writer at the moment and there’s no reason not to begin the next album project in the time I would have been touring. Somewhere in all of this is another surgery and a very long chemically-imposed period of silence, so I hope you’ll understand that I have to really pick that date carefully.

I’m pretty emotionally burnt out at the moment, but please know how hard I tried to resolve this and how disappointed I am that I can’t perform this record yet. I’m completely bummed, especially for all of you who started making plans to see a show. Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance, and I mean nothing. I love this band you were going to hear, I love the guys and girls I work with, and the only thing that stops me from devolving into a puddle of tears is knowing that it’s a long life, and the greatest gift in the world is being able to create music no matter what the circumstances. So these are the new circumstances, and I’ll find a way to make it mean something. That’s all you can ever do.

John
