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!

A little like Gene Wilder now

In a glass elevator

So be in it with the limitless image of the intimate figure that you're getting is love

    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

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
