Jon Watts | Instructions for Us(e) | Lyrics

These songs don’t say anything
you don’t already know
love your life, listen
and chew your food slow
climb trees and be happy and listen to your pain experience the spectrum and let go of your shame

Its all the same
I write reminders
don’t idolize me please
treat me like a post-it note
then idolize the trees
and life and earth and all that’s in between
we’re made of space so listen
because silence holds a key

You should use this album to return to listening
and when you’re ready, turn it off
and listen to something

Because I don’t exist inside of this
it just captures a moment
It’s good to look inside this book
at memories it’s holding
but I’m not here
I’m somewhere else continuing the story
Just because it’s written down does not make it euphoric

It’s like
sometimes good and sometimes bad
and sometimes it’s just

welcome, welcome, come on in
You’re welcome to enjoy it
Or turn it off and sit on rocks and listen to the morning
