Quicksand – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


I feel like I’m losing ground when I step in your direction,

You’re dragging me down when I feel we’re making a connection,

Walking the line between the realm of friends or lovers,

Knock, Knock on a door to a room that’s never been discovered.


I’m falling through quicksand,

I’m sinking deeper everyday,

I’m falling through quicksand…


The light at the end is blinking in and out of focus,

Burning emotions fire our need to live the moment,

Struggling to free myself from sinking any deeper,

The harder I fight the more I lose sight of the leader.


Everyday I want to go and fly away,

With my mind, with my mind so free…

Only in Hawaii – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


I know of a place not so far away.

Where the mountains and the ocean play together as the palm trees sway.

The mana of our islands has a special place in your heart.

E komo mai everybody come and join us from near or far…


Celebrate your life, in a place so nice,

Dance the hula to your favorite melody…

Only in Hawai’i.


Learn to surf build a castle feel the warmth of the sand.

Or go hiking to the top of Mauna Kea and see all that you can.

When you leave our special islands with Aloha in your memory.

Spread the word that ‘ohana in Hawai’i means you’re family.

Discover Aloha With Me – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


The Mountains, the Ocean

The sand beneath my feet

These little things are paradise to me

The water, and palm trees

Ka i’a in the sea

Come and visit paradise with me


She’s calling to you,

Wherever you may be

The hula maidens calling out to me.

Shes calling to you,

Come to Hawaii

And discover aloha with me!


Friends and ohana

Travel over seas

To watch the water dancing on the reef

Spirit of aloha

Embraces all you see

Come and visit paradise with me.

Lover’s Lullaby – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


Dim the lights my little baby close your eyes,

Listen as I sing this lover’s lullaby to you…


Close your eyes, every little thing will be fine,

I’ll be here, if the thought of being lonely makes you frightened,

Hold me tight, the beating of my heart will calm your soul,

Let this lullaby lead you through the night


Stay asleep, the wind will sing your melody,

Listen close, you can here the angels singing harmony,

In your mind, serenity will start carry through,

Let your dreams just show you how it’s gonna be…

Rainin’ – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


Its too bad the flowers, couldn’t grow,

With all the children dancing dancing on them to and fro,

They’re looking for answers, and the writing on the wall,

I think that you should head in before you slip and fall


Because it’s raining outside,

To the kids out playing, come inside.

Because it’s raining outside,

Say farewell to the sunshine, he says goodbye.


Looking to heaven waiting for the sun to shine

If only there was one way we could not step on the line

Get your feet up out and moving, make your mind start rolling around,

Your troubles getting bigger cuz the rains still coming down

The Train – Music and Lyrics by Alx Kawakami (ASCAP)


The black suits riding, at the 10 o’clock hour,

Mind is fading, but the last stops coming along.

The door slowly opens, Getting ready for the freedom

But Mama’s on the other side, her feet are moving trying hard not to miss this train!

Chorus: (2X)

Oh let her go right now,

Let her on the train

She’s got nowhere else to be,

We can wait till sunrise (for the train)


Starts out jumping, trying to hit the ground running.

Burning the rubber, at the bottom of the soles of her feet

Eye’s start staring, at the crazy little lady,

It’s amazing what you would do when you’re in a foreign country trying to get on home.
