Jayanga Nanayakkara is a singer/songwriter with a sincere "heart on sleeve"-esque type approach to composing music. "Little Less" is a fitting display of this very attribute and invites you the listener to sit yourself down and be taken into a story which is both relatable and tugs at your heart strings.

"Little Less" is the second release under the Melomanic Records label.


Lyrics :

She felt like a pillow in the morning,
Her kisses soft and tender, passionate,
Ever heard of many gods or saints or angels, but,
How I know my heavens where you are

A hundred miles I'd ride and a hundred more,
Realize the pain wasn't in my bones,
And here I am, it feels like pain I guess,
And then I see your smile, your glow again

It was once for me, but now for someone else,
But to see you glow it hurts a little less.

When it came to being me I was never brave,
When it came to loving you, girl I was never afraid,
Watched you leave, wanting you to stay
Prayed to your god to let me burn instead,
You weren't beautiful for the shade that you left,
No, you were beautiful for the way you felt.

So here I am, the feels a little less
You've been gone a while and the road's been quite a mess,
A part of me is gone there's not much else,
All the love that's in your letters is all I've left

To see you glow it hurts a little less,
To see you glow it hurts a little less,
You said you're happy now, you've found someone else,

But to see you glow it hurts a little less,
To see you glow, it hurts a little less
See you glow... a little less,
Baby I swear that it all hurts a little less.

I once felt that heart beat soft upon my chest,
But now that heart is beating,
For someone else.
