"Watching You Well" as written by and Matthew Berninger Scott Devendorf....
You stand now, on yourself
A little moon is coming in the room
You stand there still
Like you were in the arms of
Everyone you ever wanted

I was watching you well

I won't stop you, I won't speak
The water on your cheek is the only thing smooth and
I'm ashamed that I'm ashamed of you
Standing in my room, lest more water overtake you

And I was watching you, watching you well

Why won't you leave me quicker?
Why won't you leave me?

I'm ashamed that I'm ashamed of you
For standing in my room, lest more water overtake you

I won't stop you
And I won't speak

Why won't you leave me quicker?
Why won't you leave me?

    General CommentI dont think the lyric is "the water on your cheek is the only thing smooth"
    I think its "The water on your cheek is the only thing thats moving"

    He is so angry at himself for what she has done and possibly angry because he can't tell her that he still loves her. Dented pride us males suffer from this a lot.

    She tells him what happened but he cant speak, he cant move and she is motionless also and for that instant or that collection of moments. The only thing moving is the tears on her cheek. This could also be the fact that whatever she says will not move him and he doesnt feel anything for her

    perhaps he wants to cry himself, but she won't leave the room quick enough.

    General CommentWOW. such a vivid picture, she stands there in a dark room crying over a mistake she's made, he just stares at her, and he can't even believe that they are at this point, he wants to be sympathetic but he's ashamed of her.
