about

A message from Tash:

"When I found out about Jonah’s passing, I went through every message we had exchanged, remembering this amazing person I was so lucky to call a friend and someone I admired and respected deeply. One of the things we bonded over was our shared love of words as lyricists. Jonah was a true poet through and through with a beautiful heart to match. In the year that AL1CE formed, he sent me lyrics that he heard my voice on. I think one of the mysteries of art is that sometimes an artist can tap into a message that transcends time. Somehow his words feel like he was speaking directly to us now. In the weeks that has followed since Jonah passed, I am reminded of the gift that music is and how healing it can be. Jonah left us a gift to help us process his passing, and while it was really emotionally hard to sing it for the recording, I’m also so grateful to have had this song to create. AL1CE made the music around Jonah’s beautiful words in honor of our dear friend that we’ll be performing at his memorial show this Saturday. The proceeds of the song will go to his family with all our love."

lyrics

I’m slipping away - turning
Inside out

Drowning on the breaks - of
This sea of doubt

Crashing right through me - the
Waves pull me away

I would never leave you - but
My heart just won’t stay

All that you showed me - turns
Into a forgotten song

Fading now, you whisper to me
And the words are all long gone

So take me down
Pull me out to sea
It’s over now
Let the tides take me
Castles made of sand
Only stand so long
You hold out your hand
And I just can’t hold on
(Anymore)

Standing at the edge - we can see it all
But any closer now - and we just might fall
Wrapping my emotions - in this bed of salt
Nothing left to grow - but this guilt in my heart

If there was a way - to turn it all around
I would take you with me - but then we both would surely drown

So take me down
Pull me out to sea
It’s over now
Let the tides take me
Castles made of sand
Only stand so long
You hold out your hand
And I just can’t hold on
