Jon Watts | Songs That I've Released | Lyrics

I’ve got to release these songs
Even when I want to hold on
the thought at fault is wrong
As long as I can live I can love
Maybe even longer than that
And if you asked me when I’m coming back
ask me again
and then run and tell a friend
because I ask that every minute

And while you’re out of this body
I’m living in it
While you’re thinking in detail
I’m feeling infinite
A little bit of pain
a lot of symptom
that’s the language of the body
I hope you’re listening
I hope you’re listening, so listen in to symphonies.

And if the chords don’t match up
pretend it’s meant to be
a little instance of forgiveness for this symphony
And that forgiveness that you’re giving me
that shit is meant to be
and that’s the grace of good intention

We hold onto this fear of never ending
living and sinning
and pretentiously intending
but not far from the beginning
you just may find that
you were never pretending

I can hold my fingers up and
tell you all I’ve lost
I can live intentionality
anticipating costs
I can feel emotion deeply
utill there’s no emotion left
I can feel my lungs collapsing
I can fill them with my breath
I can open up my eyes
I can close them if I want
I can eat breakfast for dinner
and dinner for lunch
or combine them all together
and call it all brunch
Oh, brunch

I can live into the victim role
where damage takes it’s toll
I can stop doing anything
when doing it gets old
I can be a living healer
prescribe love for pain
I can show you how to do it
Come dancing in the rain
I can climb trees or let the trees climb me
I’m so free and now so are these songs
that I’ve released
