Peaches Wale This is a really good album about feelings and sometimes it's important to tell people about your feelings and to listen to your friends about their feelings too. Favorite track: a tree in the park.

Track Name: twenty-second street
twenty-second street

on the shoreline for you I wait patiently
you and i together by the sea
on my way i smell the cool salty breeze
fills up my heart into my mind it goes on endlessly

run with me through the city in our heart
we’ll go away so far to the other side

everything that I want to be
all of the visions that I see
call back to such a time so far from me
to when my spirit felt more free

every single loving memory reminds who I should be
and though I know it’s far from me
we’ll meet on twenty-second street

distant shoreline
one year ago promised you
til the end i will always have you

why?
don’t ask
it’s just a feeling that comes from me naturally
but i fear it’s not the thing i thought it was before

when i woke heard you cry from in our room
what do i do when i know i can’t help you

everything that I want to be
all of the visions that I see
call back to such a time so far from me
to when my spirit felt more free

every distant longing memory becomes my enemy
but though I know it’s far from me
we’ll meet on twenty-second street

everything that you mean to me
all of the visions that I see
call to my mind the list of many things
that just belong to you and me

every distant longing memory reminds who I should be
and though I know it’s far from me
we’ll meet on twenty-second street
in the end I know we’ll meet on twenty-second street
cause twenty-second street is just a place for you and me
Track Name: a tree in the park
light shines through my window at 6 AM
begins again
no dream in my heart
let me sleep in until when
i can rise up feeling my life anew
i’ve got a thought right now if you don’t mind me mentioning to you

since springtime i told myself
this summer this is the big one
it’s fall and I feel I’ve let it all slip

i took a little walk to find a tree in the park
and when I found a spot I went to take apart
every cloudy thought to dig in deep into my heart
to take these words and call them art

i found it there right on a bench in the shade
i thought about before and all the things that we made
to all the promises and all the words that i never forgave

light shines through my window
i’m wide awake
i feel it’s all a big mistake spending all of my time dreaming

i’ll tell you i’ve failed you
no you’ll tell me that i’m conceited
i tell you
i miss the time before i felt so defeated
you told me my greatest strength is to be self evaluated
that no one can see the world like I want to see

i took a look inside with every feeling laid
i thought about before and all the things that we made
to all the promises and all the words that I never forgave

i know I need to change

i took a walk to find a tree in the park
and when I found a spot I went to take apart
every cloudy thought to dig in deep into my aching heart
Track Name: a blanket of white (feat. Dear Jia)
hidden hope in a blanket of white
endless night
will this be for my whole life
lift my dream
tell me it will not die
looking up for a sight known as the blue sky

lie to me
tell me you will try
to me it is just your words that keep me here alive
keep on fighting for me please
it is you that’s keeping me determined in my soul

hidden hope in a blanket of white
endless night
will this be for my whole life
lift my dream
tell me it will not die
looking up for a sight known as the blue sky

why do you keep yourself so far
is there someone in your heart
don’t fear a thing from me
all I need from you is light
so keep on shining bright
undying is your soul

i’ll cheer for you when there is no one left
believe in me just as I believe in you
know if I could I would keep you safe too
though I know that you think that I’m just a kid

hidden hope in a blanket of white
endless night
will this be for my whole life
lift my dream
tell me it will not die
looking up for a sight known as the blue sky
Track Name: smiles and dreams
awake and next to you
i hear you talk in your sleep
although you’re here with me
you’ve not the strength to weep
you’ve been alone till now
and you’re not used to me
but know I’m here for you
for you whenever you need

awake and next to you
my feelings build within me
i want to sing to you
for you to dance with me
i know it’s hard so you
can’t open up to me
but know I’m here for you
where your father should

be with me
smile at me
know I know you more than you know me
i hold my heart so distantly

i’ve been here by your side for all this time
know if it was a choice that it would be for all my life
i know that in my heart you won’t be mine
whisper into my ear from your dream
be with me
stay with me
trust in me
don’t leave me

come close
come into my embrace and look at me
let’s see
let me clean your face and wipe your glasses off
so you can see
see the way I feel for you and need me
love me
love me like a brother
love anything

be with me
smile at me
know I know you more than you know me
i hold my heart so distantly

i’ve been here by your side for all this time
know if it was a choice that it would be for all my life
Track Name: splash nebula (feat. Slime Girls)
come meet me by the shore
one light before the splash nebula

let’s be the breeze before the sunset
tell me you’ll dream about you and I out there

what will it mean
the space between tears us through
just tell me when you look back on me
you’ll see me by your side
my eyes are shining bright
you’ll take me to the starry sky

dive in
swim into the night
grant me this wish of mine
sharing the night before you go

we still have time before the sunrise to go
just hold on to me until the end
i know what’s coming to
i cannot be with you
don’t tell me I don’t understand

i know it’s not right
just fool me one more time

dive in
swim into the night
grant me this wish of mine
trust I know it isn’t right
this is our last chance to shine this bright
so see me off just one more time
meet me one light before the sky
Track Name: a little voice
hear a little voice from beyond
sing a rigid voice
it’s all wrong
shout beyond these walls I will call
who will stay to catch me if I fall

hear my little voice from my soul.
hide this rigid voice
i’m not whole
tear away this shell all around me all around

we are not alone
we’re not required to be
yet we are clawing
crawling
biting
screaming
running away to feel something

what is the truth of me
my hidden identity
is it true
is it the truth or am I truly fake
it’s time to wake up
shake up
what to make of it

i don’t know if my feelings really make much sense
but what I do know I’m not alone
though I don’t want the world to see
maybe just maybe oh maybe I will find a voice for me

hear a little voice from beyond
sing a rigid voice
it’s all wrong
shout beyond these walls I will call
who will stay to catch me if I fall

hear my little voice from my soul.
hide this rigid voice
i’m not whole
tear away this shell all around me all around

i will never know what I’m required to be
so I am clawing
crawling
biting
screaming
running away to find anything

what is the truth of me
my hidden identity
is it true
is it the truth or am I truly fake
it’s time to wake up
shake up
what to make of it

i don’t know if my feelings really make much sense
but what I do know I’m not alone
though I don’t want the world to see
maybe just maybe oh maybe I will find a voice for me
Track Name: disconnect
losing living
hiding from you
fading signal
disconnect

follow me
i cannot take the lead
nobody
is in it anymore no

or is it me
what do I have to be
can we be
like what we were before

losing living
hiding from you
fading signal
disconnect

guide me
through what i cannot see
connect me
to someone like you were

somebody
please get a hold of me
just make me
be like i was before

losing living
hiding from you
fading signal
disconnect
Track Name: proximity
as you depart again to go home
i scream inside oh please don’t leave me alone oh no

i never feel myself by myself
i know that’s crazy
i can’t digest discontentment to be left alone

it’s not like we can meet again tomorrow
the future’s not so clear oh no please tell me how
to know how much more I’ll have to wait for a star to shine

we cannot fall behind
to struggle all the time
we all get down and beaten
but still you hit my LINE

it’s such a dream to see
us out here so truly
close and yet far gone

we live our day to day
future on a delay
we know that we will fight and
keep hold til then someway

this insecurity
so unbecomingly

link me to proximity

you’re on the other side
once again
our memories are the one thing we have to keep hold on

afraid and yet it feels I’m alone
i can’t forget that online you’re never far away

our highest and our lows we’re always fighting through
we’re doing all we can there’s nothing left we need
the stars are shining bright and only more as time draws near

we cannot fall behind
to struggle all the time
we all get down and beaten
but still you hit my LINE

it’s such a dream to see
us out here so truly
close and yet far gone

we live our day to day
future on a delay
we know that we will fight and
keep hold til then someway

this insecurity
so unbecomingly

link me to proximity

sideeyed
want to hide
my hope right by your side
out of sight
how I’ve tried
to see this in my mind

we live our day to day
future on a delay
we know that we will fight and
keep hold til then someway

this insecurity
so unbecomingly

link me to proximity
save me straight to SSD
i’ll be waiting patiently
Track Name: last summer, when everything changed
look up
be careful
don’t let memory own you
as the voice in your head begs you
take me to that summer time

one day
you’ll wake up
and it will come back to you
fight back and you will come through
you will feel the sun shine

let’s take a ride on time
summer wasn’t all i thought that it would be for me
it was that memory
we’re still alive this time
someone will hear our voice
and take with it hope, and smile
so look ahead
know it will arrive on time
Track Name: a sentimental cry (feat 加奈子 from 禁断の多数決)
light of the night
a memory so childlike

a cloudy sky
a whisper of a soft bye bye
my youth departing

i’ve been looking all this time to find a memory
even though with every day we make a new fantastic dream to share together

ゆめ ひかっている むね ときめく
ほら きらきらきっと とおいそら
まだ とどかないね このうた うたって
てをつないだら さあ いこう

even in the city light
i’m dreaming of a starry sky
even if I cannot be with you
i’m singing a sentimental cry

ひとりじゃないの いつもそばにいる
あしたはもっと ずっとつよくなれる

light of the night
a sparkle in my line of sight

just close your eyes
imagine it’s the stars that you loved
oh so dearly

look and see it’s all around in the light of the streets
there with all the memories of every night we spent and the dreams we made together

あい それはとても つよいもの
まだしらない ゆめ みている
そう あえなくても このうた うたって
この せかいは とてもすてき
しんじていて

even in the city light
i’m dreaming of a starry sky
even if I cannot be with you
i’m singing a sentimental cry

ひとりじゃないの いつもそばにいる
これからずっと きみと かがやける
Track Name: your fairyland
my friend
from you i feel the inspiration
my heart
is yours to shape

teach me
lift me up with your guiding wisdom
kiss me again
remind me that you’re here for me
are you?

i’ll see you soon
the same I do every day
waiting for you
to show me something i haven’t ever seen.

can i sit next to you
catching pennies falling from the sky, up above
please tell me stories from the
time you saw another world

remind me when it’s time to leave
to head to your fairyland

i’ll see you soon
the same I do every day
waiting for you
to show me something i have not seen ever before

my trust in you
it’s something I’ve had all my life since I was born.

so where are you
i’m waiting for you to take me away

can i sit next to you
catching pennies falling from the sky, up above
please tell me stories from the
time you saw another world

remind me when it’s time to leave
to head to your fairyland

i still remember the smell from the rain
as the sun still shone down through the dark clouds up above
the day you said goodbye to your fairyland
