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: THIS MORNING AS
lover doesn't make you mine
but all my life I search for you
doesn't mean that I will find
but I have to try

lover doesn't make you mine
but all my life I search for you
just because you're by my side
doesn't make you mine

all this time,
you were mine

before I knew you.
Track Name: EVERYTHING TURNS ORANGE
I wash your hair in the morning
the waters cold but, your arms are open
the sun's hanging low, kissing the ocean

I'm shiver cold, but you say
love will keep us warm
as every pale thing turns orange
in the light of the morning.

and I think of you in the morning
in the morning light.
Track Name: YOU ARE WITH ME
when the sun goes into the night
you are with me, you walk beside
when we speak in the night
nothing to keep, nothing to hide
and I know in your eyes
you'll stay with me, all of my life

I'm not afraid of the dark
you're always there
right where you are
everythings bigger than how it
would seem, when you're with me

all of your life by my side
through the night.
Track Name: AGAIN
when I get scared I need you there
when I get alone, I can't bare
talk to me, be comforting
I need a hand to hold

everyone can never stay forever
but love can last a long long time
lets grow in love forever
or at least until we die

to love you till we don't exist in time
wouldn't it be wonderful to try
to love you till we don't exist in time
to try, to love you till we don't exist in time.
Track Name: FOR THE FIRST TIME
you are in the crowd
above us, hidden by the city
the stars are still shining
the stars are always shining.

but here we have made our own stars
sitting in apartment windows
they wait for us, they wait for us.

"love is hard" she says
I say good it can make me strong
you can make me strong
you walking towards the streetlight
refusing to be afraid, of meeting me here
again, or looking into my eyes
for the first time.

I think of you as I walk down the river
how long this earth has waited to hold me
you are somewhere within this, whirling
round the setting sun with me
in my head, in my heart, every part

like my mother's father,
this is the curse of eternal life
we all must choose who to spend with it
those who stay in our arms, or
memories that don't exist.

my mother said love is pain
then i say murder me with it
don't let me feel again
this fear we can't begin
to learn to fall in love again.
Track Name: WHERE HAVE THEY ALL GONE
here in your hands I feel empty
I can't understand when did you leave me
Track Name: AS I HOLD YOU
tonight was the night you told me your feelings were true
tonight was the night I fell asleep dreaming of you

you can see everything deep in me I want to be
you know how much it means, everything.
I didn't have to wish for you, bravest heart
you came through, and deep within
our bodies grew little shoots of love bamboo.
looking around my room, at all the things
oneday, I might share with you.

you have your fears, and I have the same
but our future is more, than what our past
relationships became, I have the answers
you have the same.

please, love your heart more than I do
I will try hard to love myself too.
Track Name: NOTHING CAN HURT US
I can't say, I'm done with love
and I can't say, I'm done with you.
but I won't give my heart away again
to words that I know are untrue.

this summer on the mountain
after burning all your things
standing on the water tower
I could feel the wings.

of the life that we tried to make
as it took you further, and further
and further away from the lake.

I was laughing, I was crying
cause I finally felt safe.
watching the plane you were in
take you far away from this place.

standing on the water tower
I could feel the wings
of the life we made
as it took you away.
