“Woke up today a lil heavy. didn’t know why, just some days are like that. but then realized i am inextricably connected to my friend [Lindsey Byrnes] who’s sweet father just passed away,” Williams shared on Instagram. “One of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers so this self-serenade is actually for her since i can’t hang with her or hug her tight. Check on your friends and send them your love. Just because we are all isolated right now doesn’t mean we aren’t as close. Our connection to each other defies space and time.

“ps [Phoebe] I’m sorry for butchering your beautiful guitar parts. And also, this is just a perfect song.”
