Album: This Is All Yours (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This acoustic-driven track is the first of three tunes on This Is All Yours named after a Japanese city in which tame deer are viewed as divine. Nara doesn't actually appear in the lyrics, which detail a drowning girl singing as she falls into the ocean.
