about

Kohaku Rivver Ohio

These songs are about the two of us, perhaps before we met, or long after. Sometimes it can be impossible to tell. Part of me is here with you, both of us present, in this moment. Even if I have gone, nothing can change this. I tell you this, incase you may feel alone, as I sometimes have. If you are here, I am still listening. ... more

Track Name: THE LOVE YOU FEEL IS REAL BUT IT WILL BREAK YOUR HEART IN TIME
Do you remember laying in my father's cornfield
our backs against the earth staring at the stars
and I said one day were going to be out there

now I'm a million miles away floating through the stars
I cant remember back at least what we said them to,
if maybe I'd choose you maybe I'd choose
sometimes I feel your fingers slip into my hand
and its as if they've always belonged there
you and me you and me

like a photograph of a photograph
little wisps of hair blowing in the wind
once in focus but now blurry
like a teenage boy laying in his bed
thinking about her every night
except I am twenty one now

like the fingernails that grow even though I tell them not to
until I cut them down, until the nail meets the skin
and even then, continues to grow
continues to grow
continues to grow
continues to grow

continues to grow
Track Name: YOU'RE NOT ALWAYS HAPPY WHEN BAD GUYS DIE
I remember as a boy thinking of you
one day I'd find out, all the things I never knew
and one day I'd find out and one day
I'd be so proud to have a dad
a dad like you a dad like you
you'd pick me up in your arms
and you'd protect me from harm
and I'd hold onto you and you'd hold me
and I'd hold onto you

now I'm holding you, I'm looking into your eyes
and I can see you love me, I can see you love me
I wish I could go back and that you'd choose a different path
but for now I know you love me, I know you love me

I finally found you, I'm never leaving
I finally found you, I'm never leaving
and I'll hold you and I'll love you
and I'll hold you and I'll hold you
and I love you and I'll hold you
and I love you and I'll hold you
