Track Name: I Dedicate To You
This is not what I had in mind
I thought I would be of a happier kind
So I’ll go, go on to assume
That all I do I dedicate to you

So I’ll go on to bettering myself now
So I’ll go on to better myself somehow

Make believe what you think to be true
Keep telling yourself that it’s better for you
Life is not what you see on the screen
Not a TV show, wouldn’t you agree?

So I’ll go on to bettering myself now
So I’ll go on to better myself somehow

So I’ll go, I’ll go on to assume
That all I do I dedicate to you

- K. Hikele
Track Name: Love (Like You Used To)
Like a wave would you wash over me
And like a newborn baby
Would you cry over my shoulder please
Like a building in the city
Would you cover me with shade
And let me walk around amongst the trees

Do you still wish that you could love
just like you did when you were young?
Well you’re sharing this hope between everyone

Like a dawning in the spring
Would you let us all fly free
And would you allow all the birds to sing
Like a shadow in the night
Would you follow me
While I am waiting for the stars to slowly rise

Do you still wish that you could love
just like you did when you were young?
Well you’re sharing this hope between everyone

- K. Hikele
Track Name: So Long
One last night with Winter
And I know she cannot stay
One last breath inside her
Just to say these words again

That our time will pass
We will see the past
As only fun and games
One last night with Winter comes again

- K. Hikele
