about

Promises is the first offering from London-based, Yorkshire-born musician Mikey Donnelly under the pseudonym 'miles.'. Inspired after reading Psalms, Mikey was fascinated by the almost equal portions of lamentation and praise throughout the book and sought to draw from this in his music.

Track Name: Dust
I could hold here, tell my soul your eyes are open
Heavy roads here, made a boat; your roads are oceans

Took from the dust
Thought I had ended
Your voice hits the water
Could you have seen it
Written in dust
Grows to a furnace
Floods in the spirit
You come to end this

Is this a ghost near, am I alone or have you spoken?
Are you close dear? My spirit jolts; its heart beholdent

Took from the dust
Thought I had ended
Your voice hits the water
Could you have seen it
Written in dust
Grows to a furnace
Floods in the spirit
You come to end this

Behold it in mortar no one can rewrite
Your word builds an altar the sun won’t outshine
His breath cannot falter; these sails will rely
The Lord is the water; my King is my life
Track Name: Wild Heart
Taken to the tide
Arms outstretched to mine
Called to Walk alike:
How could I?
Fought in thoughts and fires
Worlds try undermine
But your word breaks through the night
"I made you wild"
Romance won't describe
Or any words of mine
Nor likeness by my eyes
The grace he pours
Taken to the tide
Take me, Adonai
Write into this life
The story's yours

Sorest seasons bore into my soul
Take these darkened months
Lord you own them all
Highest reason picks me from the fall
Let your will be known
Jesus I'll stay yours

We haven't spoke for weeks
And vultures circle me
With the weight of my defeat
I'm breaking underneath
But you come through the weeds
Your magnificence; replete
It lifts me from me knees
Jesus cling to me

And it makes me wild
Track Name: The Wind, The Quake, The Fire... A Whisper
Seen your wilderness, won’t come out from under it
Lost your wars, the battles for your head
Called upon the West, they won’t court a kinship
Wrought in flaws as thoughts break your defense
Lost your God to bottles in bars and brawls and women
None could burn the fire you won’t quench
Seen your wilderness, I won’t learn to fear
You don’t know the storms I’ve overwhelmed

My head, so soluble it
Burns white standing next to Him
My heart cries, and calls to the wind
Oh Adonai, rise again my King

Walked this wilderness
Lost my might to my head
You’ll soon know walls that all surmount your strength
Mourn the King; His city is
Brought to life as death trips
No tomb could hold no fire could relent

For He is King
Lord of all
Commander of the tides, applaud
Oh Elohim
Begin your law
Once human, ethereal

My head, so soluble it
Turns white standing next to Him
My heart cries, and calls to the wind
Oh Adonai, rise again my King
Track Name: Promises
Where are you in this?
My heart cries, speak with it
To fought the wilds I’d hid
My mountain’s climbed is there more still?
Could this be cloud or His?
Oh Adonai I’m in your mist
Where you are in this:
Now I'm tired of waiting here

Now I’m in the water it’s
As solid as the mortar on your ground
Blown away; in awe of it
From my knees oh I stand overwhelmed
Now I lay in your promises
You brought before me even in my doubt
Now I’m in the water this
Is where we meet; I know that I won’t drown

Is this your voice I hear
I lift my eyes my arms adhere
From the clouds you near
My heart refines like silver

Now I’m in the water it’s
As solid as the mortar how your
Blown away; in awe of it
But from my knees oh I stand up and
Step into your promises
You brought before me even up to
Now I’m in the water this
Is where I meet my king my feet my crown

You promised me this
