Impatience 03:34
when i got up to try to leave, you said just wait here for a while and i like your company, so i decided i would try practising patience, watching and waiting but waiting for what? that’s what i thought we wait and wait til a quarter past eight, till a quarter to three then we wait some more, what are waiting for, what are we hoping we’ll see we’ve been here too long i don’t like this song i just wanna go home so wait all you like, you can wait all night, but you’ll be waiting alone i don’t understand i don’t understand you i don’t understand i don’t understand (oh yeah) why don’t you just go to bed? the research is pretty conclusive your head will get all tangled in a mess if you don’t get enough sleep you’ll be further from your dreams and no one wants that hey are you listening? or will you just wait and wait till a quarter past eight, till a quarter to three then will you wait some more what are you waiting for what are you hoping you’ll see we’ve been here too long i don’t like this song i just wanna go home so wait all you like, you can wait all night, but you’ll be waiting alone i don’t understand don’t understand you don’t understand i don’t understand you i don’t understand don’t understand you i don’t understand i don’t understand

well i just realised in a dream it’s all too wonderful for me there’s way too many things to see and way too many things to be no i'm not crying there's just something in my eye it's a tear cause i have actually been crying i wish that i could see it all but he said “i’ll make you a wall” and i don’t know exactly what that means and now i can’t remember what i dreamed no matter how i stretch, it’s out of reach and now i can’t remember where i’ve been hold me in your arms and tell me that everything’ll be all right i’ve just gotta be sure we’re gonna make it through the night oh whoa there’s no one waiting on me now these one-way wafers are too sour while i’m away i’m thinking, “wow – i can while away the hours” but does that time go to a place and inside time can you find space there’s something here that is the same but i just don’t know how to say it and honestly, i’m desperate that i did cause it’s the only thing i want to do and now that dream is starting to come back to me and this time when it goes i’ll miss it more so hold me in your arms and tell me that everything’ll be all right i’ve just gotta be sure we’re gonna make it through the night

tuggeranong parkway is in the middle of an earthquake multiple vehicles are swallowed up whole the exits are closed and the earthquake is highly localised, so no one knows between caswell and drakeford, soon enough it's just a big gaping hole who will save us i'm just trying to drive home but this is way too dangerous out on the road glenloch interchange such a beautiful place glenloch interchange i heard you can see it from space well i love glenloch interchange the wonderful sights and the sounds well i love glenloch interchange but now most of it's underground who will save us i'm just trying to drive home but it's too dangerous out on the road

she said she could never wanna be with me and i know that she meant it very seriously but i just can't get her off my mind and i know i should just forget about her and go find somebody that i understand but being with her just feels so right and she was there when i was broken and she was there when i was right she don't miss me, but i'm still hoping she wants to see me tomorrow night i call her on the phone: 'i wrote you another song, i hope you like it but i know it won't make sense to you' i know that i'm long gone from your life but i want to see you one last time, just to recall when you were mine so forgive me, if you don't wanna be with me it's a mystery, how you exist so wonderfully i get tongue-tied, just thinking of you but i know, i should just be getting on with things i'm a sad sight, just waiting for the phone to ring but i don't know what else to do and you were there when i was broken and you helped me see the light but i left my love unspoken and that is why i'm calling you on the phone cuz i wrote you another song and i hope you like it but i know it won't make sense to you i know that i'm long gone from your life but i want to see you one last time, just to recall when you were mine i know that i'm long gone from your life but i want to see you one last time, just to recall when you were mine, when you were mine just to recall when you were mine, when you were mine just to recall when you were mine

Plans 02:25
so you look up and what do you see is this where you wanted to be if you stepped back, back out of your life what would you notice that you've tried to hide i'm sorry that i never found the words to say i'm sorry that i never held your hand and ran away but there's just too many logistics, right now and there's too much on my mind so you find out that you can be free and you write out who you're gonna be and you think to yourself 'this wasn't part of the plan' every time something happens that you don't understand all plans will fail but we just can't do without all the plans we make but some things just don't work out so you look up and what do you see is this where you wanted to be

about

in january of this year (2019), i put together a band to play some of my songs.
we became known as the Jonah Myers and the Monah Jyers, and after playing shows for a number of months i thought it would be a good idea to record a few tunes.
the band and main vocal tracks were all done live at my place, with the odd harmony or extra instrument overdubbed later.
it's a bit different to other stuff i've done, although that makes it the same i guess, cause i generally try to do stuff i haven't done before.
i really hope you enjoy it.
