about

"‘Words Like Daggers’ is an exploration of loss... the agonizing breakdown of a deep connection, merged with other poignant losses, like the loss of my bass player and spiritual brother, Robert Russell, who plays on the record.

I wanted the song to sound like a memory, like you’ve entered someone else’s dream space- the emotion is contained, very internal, so I juxtaposed a vocal vulnerability against a driving, incessant rhythm, where you can feel the underlying tension at the same time as experiencing the gentle plea, ‘Where’s my shelter…?’ Jhelisa's gorgeous, haunting vocals and stunning performance in the video capture the underlying intensity of the song, as she channels every emotion, unleashing demons, showing us what it feels like to maintain both power and empathy in the face of adversity.” - The Angel

This song is also included on LaunchLeft launchleft1.bandcamp.com Launched Artist Single Series. A compilation featuring various artists as part of the Aleka’s Attic #RiverPhoenix50 celebration. Each featured artist is associated by "6 degrees of River Phoenix" in celebration of what would have been River's 50th birthday this year.

lyrics

Where's my shelter

It's the look you gave me
Made your words
Words like daggers
Tempting and dangerous
Made your words
Words like daggers

Plundering souls
Hard to reach you
Along the way
Made it hard to reach you
To reach you, reach you reach you, reach you

Plundering souls
Made your words
Along the way
Words like daggers
Daggers, daggers, daggers, daggers

To reach you, reach you

When your storm came
Made your words
Words like daggers
Where's the shelter from your words
Words like daggers
Where's the shelter
Where's the shelter
Where's the shelter

Make it hard to reach you
Make it hard to reach you
