lyrics

Jon Watts | This is Just a Song | Lyrics

It’s not
everybody living in the same space
It’s not
one thing you said or did that brought me to this place
I’ve got to face my fear
and then say it in a way that you can hear
but it’s unclear
and so I’ll focus on the clarity I have
I’ll spread out all my maps
and then perhaps what I have to do
is chart some new territory
I love this story
but I’m getting kind of tired of adventure
Is this essential?
When can I relax?

And I can hold on
I’m so strong
It’s been a long time coming and instantly it’s gone It’s just a song

It’s not the end of the world
It’s just another bad day
so please, I don’t need you to look at me that way
I’ll be ok
And this is nothing but a song
so just listen and nod
and then secretly wonder what you’ve done wrong

It’s just my voice
It’s just the core of me
It’s just as deep as you’ve ever heard me speak
It’s just some beats on a screen
I mean, I don’t mean to mean
You see? We’ve relied on our words for too long
It’s time to make songs

And I can hold on
I’m so strong
It’s been a long time coming and instantly it’s gone It’s just a song
