about

Unsung Lullabies was a title I suggested to Saara. I had an idea about these songs, lullabies that won't be heard because some people are not able to have their own children. It can be of biological or legislative reasons, like gay couples. Anyway, the actual lyrics ended up very different. Despite the soft sound of the song the lyrics are depicting anxiety. The arrangement is very layered and a lot of things are happening. I find this quite suitable for the lyrics.

lyrics

Night - shining right outside
So wide and so alive

Silencing these songs that are mine
Unsung lullabies

Night - loud and wild and bright
Please, ease me from your light

Let me sing these songs that are mine
Unsung lullabies

Full of fumes and rain and neon
There are hidden streets to be on
Those endless rows of light
That remap the world in the night
