“Jehovah” is a song by Lane Shuler, a spoken word poet. It is a song that has a vulnerability that strikes a chord with the listener. The downbeat chords merge well with the boom bap beat. I think that the lyrics are achingly vulnerable as well because they talk about past relationships and the fact that they won’t return.
It is a song that helps Shuler understand this reality, and it has a slow, almost crooning delivery. It puts you in the picture of Shulers mind, which is something all great songs should do.
