about

“Jonah” was written when Lillora was in college. It was originally a poem, and was later turned into a song. In 2014, it has only been altered a little where the piano part and vocals/lyrics are concerned. The minimal percussion tracks are recently composed.
“Jonah” is a bit contemplative in nature, and was written from a place of trying to deal with changes in one’s life. It is definitely open to interpretation, so we hope you enjoy and maybe find something in it for you.

lyrics

Seconds slide silently
through minutes and hours
waves pass and crash over me
pressing their powers

I never turned my eyes
to warning light
and now my ship has crashed
deep into night

Floating I contemplate soft mysteries
fumbling to find the truth
lacking the keys

How the sand scratches
under my fingernails
how the sea pulses
through shallow trails

Crawling I’m creeping up
some steep embankment

This is the last place
I thought I’d be sent.
