Jon Watts | So Well | Lyrics

Now let’s spread it wide open
the distance should help
you know, and keep our eyes open
I’m hoping for self that I can get it together
and while it’s breaking apart
I took a break from this letter
You’re going to break our hearts

And that’s ok, Jon
That’s fine
This world is still a great place
for us to live out our lives
Just look around
I see a tree
I see this sea of mediocrity just vanish beneath me
I can go to him and climb up into my friend
Hatred turns to love as I climb from limb to limb
It’s like that

Suddenly everything has changed
I don’t feel the same
I envision my listening as a step outside this picture frame
and looking back in
how many virtues did I claim?
How many demons unnamed
that remained fueling all my flames?

I can go for long walks
I’m connected
taking in the sights and loving late night talks
My pain’s from the same place
the universe was made
so I live it and embody it
this running in place

The air’s full of life and everything is living
so when I’m walking at night
it often feels like I’m swimming
I’m so well held
I’m so far from hell
I’m exploring my story
and it’s going so well.
