1   The Horizontal Moon

 

They say the mountain is higher than I see

They say we never turn back to the past

Another world reflects on the water waving like a heat haze

Then I see the sky broken down the middle in the breeze

So tell me now

What you have ever seen ?

Tell me now

What you have ever heard ?

Tell me now

Let me hear your story, baby

They say we face many turns in a way

They say everybody is afraid of the darkness

Like the moon in the middle of night

She always comes in my mind

But I can see only part of her

that shines on a light

So tell me now

What you have ever seen ?

Tell me now

What you have ever heard ?

Tell me now

How does it feel ?

Nothing is over your head

Everything is going to the west

and sinking down on the horizon

Unformed clouds, drifting in the air

It will soon melt into the moon light, too

Time leaves me behind

Oh, Space makes me alone

Still we've lost ourselves in following a day

then a waxing moon would be on our eyes

So tell me now

What you have ever seen ?

Tell me now

What you have ever heard ?

Tell me now

How does it feel ?

Nothing is over your head

So tell me now, oh, take me now

that's where I belong

2   One Way Street

Her yellow signal gives you sing to come

Go straight before she changes her mind

It's time to drive yourself to the cliff

Do your best once you taste hell

Half baked words never burn her ears

Only your hot tongue can bring your heart

Her shot of eyes gives you a deadly wound

You've still aching from the first knock  aren't  you ?

Nobody can solve an equation of love

Nobody knows where the true love is

Falling in love means just "Falling"

It's too late after that

You've been already a prisoner

Stand up man at one way street

Throw a poor pride into a coffin

Nothing can keep you from going straight

Don't put on the brakes halfway to your goal

If you lose betting one ( Next bet two )

If you lose betting two ( Next bet four )

If you lose betting four

Play another hand betting all

A fat gambler said ( what did he say )

Son just try again and again ( again and again )

And a chance must come to you

A man would never miss it

Don't make some tricks

Nobody can solve an equation of love

Nobody knows where the true love is

Falling in love means just "Falling"

It's too late after that

You've been already a prisoner

Standup man at one way  street

Throw a poor pride into  a coffin

Nothing can keep you from  going straight

Don't put on the brakes halfway to your goal

Standup man at one way street

Throw a poor pride into  a coffin

Run through fears just like a cannon ball

Put your blood into loving her

 

3   I'm In Trouble

 

I'm in trouble

I must be large snail

Defend my self 

with shell of pride

From your garden

to San Quentin

I still have cards

Yes, I can knock on any doors

She told me

Son, you'll be fine

I pray for you every night and day

You got it son?

You'll be alright 

You'll be fine

A valley echoes over the line

and beyond oblivion 

and late night cries tonight

I'm trying to find the dim light behind the dark

 

Gloom on table

Dry stuffy room

A rays of the sun

The songs wait for a word

I've been trying 

to do what I can

Just 9 hours

Let me stay please don't go away

She told me

Hey you'll be fine

You wrote me great song in just one day

She told me

Hey you'll be alright

You'll be fine

She told me

Son you'll be fine

I pray for you every night and day

You got it son ?

You'll be alright

You'll be fine

A valley echoes over the line

and beyond oblivion

and late night cries tonight

I'm trying to find the dim light behind the dark

5   Dallas Road

 

 

I was dying in the heart of wild

I'd been searching a drop of water for miles and miles

My pistol had got no powder in Reno any more

Where is the woman who dropped out me from the time

 

I say oh, sandstorm

So don't you blow away the smoke behind me

Tell me oh, heavy sunlight

You're gonna burn out all my hope

 

The earth rolled away

The sky fell down

At last I saw the sun burn black in haze

Drag my rusty body

Now, go back to Dallas again

Ain't got no cars around here

Gonna catch a wild horse right away

 

I say oh, sandstorm

So don't you blow away the smoke behind me

Tell me oh, heavy sunlight

You're gonna burn out all my hope

6   Grandpa Grandma

When I talk with sister on the telephone

She tells me to eat more vegetable

Oh I love you sister, love you brother,

love you mother, grandpa grandma

There was daddy by 2003

He was really daddy

I hope  he's doing well

I know almost everything

I don't mind now

My life is strange like mystery train

Listen to the wheels going round and round

I wont you to be more careful grandpa, grandma

In my child hood

I used to go back home with grandma

We walk along a river

I was crazy about ABARENBO SHOUGUN

brandished a bamboo ruler and cut weeds

And I saw leaves fall down

down on long haul track

Then I wrote a song first time

the first one who praised my song is grandma

Don't you remember my song grandma?

Can you still sing my song for me? oh, grandma

I've tasted, not wasted

I want you to know that

four years have passed since I left my home

I've tasted, not wasted

I want you to know that

so many leaves have fallen after that

Indian summer

Nothing in my favor

There’s no clouds above me

I got my stubborn from my grandpa

He is a man from south west Islands

Hey grandpa why don't you tell me your story like you used to

I'm so proud of your way

I'll keep your lesson in my mind

Never a day passed

that I didn't feel your love grandpa grandma

Hey grandpa, grandma

You're ground son sings for you

7   After The Rain

A shaft of light came out from the sky

and grains of hope were scattered on the ground

We began to walk again as the sun was eating clouds

You got go now

I can't stay anymore

Have you ever seen birds playing on the evening calm ?

Oh we all live in a changing time

So, your bad times don't last so long

like birds fly away sooner or later

After the rain,

After the rain

After the rain the sun is shining now

Sometime I fall into evil ways

It got me down and might never end

I should know that who I am

You should know who you are too

Got no money ?

It's gonna be all right 

Got no love ?

You just don't know someone waiting

So, your bad times don't last so long

like a birds fly away sooner or later

After the rain

After the rain

After the rain the sun is rising now

After the rain

After the rain

After the rain the sun is shining now

8   Down To The Country

The day before we got on the boat was heavy rain and cold

A parting cup tasted bitter sweet

and thousand felling filled up the glass

The morning came silently

Farewell to our land

We raised the full sails

Tangled with love for the good old days

I remember tears dropped on the deck

Wiped with the smoke of the waves

and flowed to the shore

All the crazy things we had to try

We nearly dropped dead

They don't like to swim against the tide

They never know the tide turned

 

A trace is getting deeper and clearer as we go further

Now will it lead to the place ?

Well that sticks in my heart at any time

I remember you were standing with a smile

until we faded away in to the fog

And I believe the candles are still lighting for us

that's not lose the way even in the darkness

I hear the sound

I wonder you would call me

How fast days pass away

The afterimages of time live as memory even if a scene changed

I never forget the days passed with you

I hear the sound

I wonder you would call me

I've been waiting day and night

Oh, but I still live on the road

Someday I could go back to this town

I'm on the road again

until that day comes

until that day comes

9   Forgiven Song

 

 

There is something deep in my heart 

Something like a flower seeds

even I don’t know now

even I don’t know now

 

There is something deep in your heart 

Something like a flower seeds

even you don’t know now

But someday you’ll know it

The day is coming 

 

At least 18 years ago

while I was playing with friends in elementary school 

Some people still judged by their collar of skin under the law

 

It’s no surprise

whatever happen in our future 

We can’t runaway from the past 

I’m not telling about one hundred years ago

I’m not telling about kind of “once upon a time story “

I don’t pretend to be blind 

 

There’ve been fights I never know 

There’ve been truth I never know

I’ve been living in this world with no doubt 

Some were buried under the freedom 

Some flew the winning flag painted bloody 

Some stood looking at scars for a while

and thought about what someone had said

“All men are created equal ”

 

What should I sing for restless soul

Some said we gotta sins in a former life 

If it is so,

If it is so

I can’t resign myself to my fate

10   The First Waltz 

 

 

If you really looking for the love

I can really love you

If you really want some love

Don't you wait too long ?

Nothing  can replaces your love

I never tell a lie

Everything about you I love

Every little thing you do

Nothing in the world

if you don't love me

You are the one to live with my life

I've been looking for a girl just like you

You are the one to makes me smile

Nothing can replace your love

I never tell a lie

Let me walk with you tonight

Let me stay all night

Oh, love me,

Kiss me

Hold me tight

Oh, yes I know you love me before to long

Under the moon

Under the stars

Under the sun

Under the clouds

We can love, live, and share

We can love, live, and share
