about

Elijah Jalil is a singer-songwriter based in Missoula, Montana. Originally from the Bay Area (CA), Elijah made his way towards the mountains after studying theater in Portland, OR to work on his Masters of Fine Arts in Acting at the University of Montana. He is a dedicated social justice artist focused on changing the world by creating and collaborating on all forms of art.

Largely inspired by Hip-Hop, R&B, Soul, and other Pop genres, Elijah started his journey with a guitar and his voice. After playing at multiple open mics around Missoula, the consistently magical collaboration with Britt Arnesen helped this debut album, Nothing to Say, come to life.

lyrics

5. DOWNPOUR
Words and music by Elijah Jalil

If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour
For you
For you

I need some time alone
I need some space away from everyone
This home don’t feel like home
Not ‘til everyone’s gone
Just like I hoped for
Just like I asked for

If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour
For you
For you

I’m taking a walk ‘cause
This talking ain’t helping
Feel anxious as hell, but
The rain is calming

It’s pouring down
My brain is so loud
When they hit the ground
The raindrops are louder
I hear the thunder
I see the lightning
Passing me by like...

It’s pouring down
My brain is so loud
When they hit the ground
The raindrops are louder
I hear the thunder
I see the lightning
Passing me by like...

They’re crying for me
Like they’re crying for me

If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour for you
If you can’t shed no tears,
Let the rain down pour
For you
For you
