My first tab! I believe it should be pretty accurate, I studied the videos below 
and experimented a lot to make sure I got the exact sound. It's not a very 
difficult song, tbh, but Jason Mraz's chord progressions are genius. Tell me what 
you think in the comments!

BM7 D#m7 G#m7 GM7-F#7

                   BM7
A little like Gene Wilder now
                 D#m7
Coming out of the tower now 
     G#m7
In a glass elevator 

that could take you all the way 
       GM7  F#7
to the sky 

                BM7
Ain't trying to fool ya now 
                D#m7
I got nothing to lose and no how 
      G#m7                                           GM7                           F#7
So be in it with the limitless image of the intimate figure that you're getting is love 

C#m7                F#
    All you need is love 


                     BM7
Ain't it nice to get out of here 
                   D#m7
Already out of the atmosphere 
            G#m7
Well if the glass ever shattered 

well it wouldn't really matter 
       GM7                     F#7
it's a love that is lifting us up 

C#m7                F#
    All you need is love 


            BM7
We're going up, up, up
        D#m7
Flying away
                 G#7 
We're taking the higher route
                 GM7         AM7
We're taking the ceiling out

            G#m7 
We're going up, 
              D#m7
we're flying away
      C#m7
Never coming down 
              GM7           F#7
because we're living it up, living it up, yeah 


BM7 D#m7 G#m7 GM7-F#7

                       BM7
What happens when your light goes out
                           D#m7
No one’s there to give you mouth to mouth
              G#m7
Don't let the break down trouble you 
                                  GM7      F#7
and claim that a brother need's a hero now

        BM7                                        D#m7
Cause I know, you know, baby once you know, you'll always know
          G#m7                                       GM7            
It's your own, your own, your own love that gets you where you wanna go 


            BM7
We're going up, up, up
        D#m7
Flying away
                 G#7 
We're taking the higher route

      C#m7
Never coming down 
              GM7           F#7
because we're living it up, living it up
            GM7           F#7
yeah you’re living it up 


             B
Knowing it's good
                 Em
And I don't mean good enough
                  D#m7
When it's really love
                  Em7          G#m7 
Well you can just rise above anything 
          GM7
it's our destiny

    GM7
Yeah
        C#m7
Oh-oh-oh
        Em7
Oh-oh-oh
      A7      BM7
Oh-oh-ah, ah, ah
Em7      A7     BM7

hey guys, for some reason my big 'M's for the major chords e.g. BM7, GM7, and AM7 became small 'm's. please note, they are MAJOR 7 chords, don't follow the mouseover chord shapes!

it's taking awhile to update.
