Paint My Dreams – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


Waking up everyday a broken memory,

Living in my own sweet world since I was a teen,

Dreaming of an angel the one who takes me from the cold

I see you I can feel you are you real, I never know


I wake up and I feel the same,

I know your face but what’s your name,

You’re the only girl I see when I paint my dreams.


Everyone around me sees I have a heart of gold

A teen trapped in an aging body always does what it’s told

Living down in paradise will always make me smile.

I wish I could remember what its like to be a wild child.


Wondering who you are,

Why you seem so far

Why I always dream of you and me

Never met before,

But you keep me wanting more,

I wonder why you’re always in my dreams.

Alcohol Nostalgia – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


Sea breeze colliding, rustling the leaves

Dampening the sound running through the forest trees

Alcohol nostalgia walking back in time

Deep in the darkness ignoring all the signs

We drink the wine, see what can we find…


I wanna crawl inside the speaker box,

Kick start the past,

Watch the classic movies, memories attached,

I wanna crawl inside the speaker box,

Kick start the past,

13 years later, still the same old cast

Listen to the music play


Lyrics pull the trigger and the race begins

Who will be the winner testify their sins

Test the world around see if you can shine

Balancing your worries as you walk along the line.

We drink the wine, what can we find…


Hey now where you going come on back to me.

Hey now where you going try to keep it clean.

Flying Together – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


We’re on this ride, no one here to guide us

All alone we’re following the light,

Just go wherever it takes us.

We fly up high, passed the clouds to heaven,

Through the night a shooting star is sent in for you

I’ll make your wish come true.


We’re flying away living for the day,

We got wind in our hair, in the sky we play,

Got nowhere to go and the only thing I know..

I’m not traveling alone, we’re flying together.


The easels blank, lets paint on the canvas

Lets hide away, where no one else will find us

All alone, writing our story

Don’t let it go lets beat the odds together

Never alone, I promise you forever yea I’ll be there

Whenever you need me


Nothing’s gonna break our path,

With you this bond will last

Doesn’t matter where we go,

As long as it’s your hand I hold, away we go…

After Dark – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)

Verse 1:

Silence at night never feels right,

Watching the moon watching me.

Calming my heart right from the start

Deep in the dark I can see


I need the woman in my life

To keep me warm at night

I don’t wanna be alone after dark

I need the woman in my life

To keep me safe at night

No one wants to be alone after dark

Verse 2:

Holding your hand, feet in the sand

Watching the tide slowly rise

Seeing my dream standing right next to me

Deep down I feel it inside.


Blinded with happiness, living with no regrets

Watch as the sun paints the sky

All of eternity, cherish these memories

Today I feel like I could fly…

Higher Ground – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


It seems today, there’s nobody left to save me,

I just can’t catch a break, no no no

It rains it pours, a sudden rush of water,

Scares all the people away.


Streams are overflowing, hear it in the air

Darkness carries over, but my body doesn’t care.

Streams are overflowing, the castles coming down

Dry your tiny teardrops, we got to climb for higher ground.


At night it’s cold, my battery runs on empty.

I never win the race,

The only path leads me in a circle,

I walk for miles in place.


Higher ground will keep us safe.

If I stay in place I’ll go insane.

Gimme your heart, make it real or else forget about it

Well, I’ll tell you one thing, if you would leave it’d be a crying shame
In every breath and every word I hear your name calling me out
Out from the barrio, you hear my rhythm on your radio
You feel the turning of the world so soft and slow
Turning you ’round and ’round
