This album encompasses folk-rock with Hawaiian and pop sounds. The songwriting is mostly mellow and groovy with a laid-back surf vibe. It's definitely good music for relaxing at the beach or driving in your car.

    Moments

    Every time I see you here, it seems to be you disappear

    I know that life is hard and things are crazy, but you can always be my baby

    Yeah time can often make you run, make you jump before the gun

    I know that what we need is to believe, in this moment to stop and breathe

    And if there was no future and there was no past, would you take this moment and make it last?

    I know that I would, Yeah

    Love someone or rush on by, time is just some alibi

    And simple things are so hard to find, just take this moment and free your mind

    And if there was no future and there was no past, would you take this moment and make it last

    I know that I would, take the sun down from above

    Together we could, Yeah

    And if there was no future and there was no past, would you take this moment and make it last?

    I know that I would, take the sun down from above

    Together we could, in harmony and love

    25th Hour

    What’s wrong with me today?  I walked out the door and forgot to say, just like yesterday...how much I love you babe

    And the day seemed to get away, I forgot to call and I got home late, you'd gone to bed...I missed the chance once again

    And I’m feeling it now

    Now that the day has slowed down

    And you said that I’m wrong

    And I need to make a change

    I’m hurting you everyday

    And you said it’s been too long

    And how it’s always been my way

    To wait for the 25th hour of the day

    Made a deal with myself I’d try, but before I remembered I saw that I lied...I could almost see something missing inside of me

    Feelings from my past rising up again, the damage that still lasts I can’t even begin to understand...I must be a broken man

    And I’m feeling it now

    All the pain that went down

    And I know that I’m wrong

    But I can’t seem to make it change

    And I’m losing you everyday

    Yes I know it’s been too long

    And you know it’s always been my way

    To wait for the 25th hour

    Where the day ends

    And where it begins

    There’s a little break in time

    Can we go there?

    I'll go everywhere

    Until I make it right

    Yes I know that I'm strong

    Yes I’m gonna make the change

    I’m working for it everyday

    Yes I know it’s been too long

    But maybe we can find a way

    To the 25th hour

    I Wonder

    I see you flying high, thru the trees and thru the sky

    I see you walking by, in the corner of my eye

    Love is in the things you do, and there’s a light inside of you

    It can make all things know, I know that is true

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder, about you

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder, about you

    In every sunshine beam, I can feel your happiness

    What a thoughtful word can bring, well I remember your kindness

    And there are so many things that I wish I wish I could say to you

    I only knew you for a short time, but you’re always on my mind

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder, about you

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder, about

    Everything that we can see, the things that would matter much to me

    But now all I can do is just believe, and fly

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder, about you

    Said I’m beginning to Wonder, I wonder

    About you, about you

    Closer

    When the day breaks I want you near

    In every moment your voice I hear

    But often times we’re far away

    Hey, hey, hey now why can’t I stay?

    Closer to you my dearest one

    Would the lord always bless and renew

    When the sun goes down and our world spins around

    I wish I was close, I wish I was closer to you

    Things can make you drift apart

    And time can often break your heart

    But there’s a thing I’d like to say

    Hey, hey, hey now why can’t’ I stay?

    Closer to you my dearest one

    Would the lord always bless and renew

    When the sun goes down and our world spins around

    I wish I was close, I wish I was closer to you

    But right now you’re so much further

    And I don’t mean to be your burden

    But won’t you let me? Did you forget me?

    Did you? Hey won’t you let me be?

    Closer to you my dearest one

    Would the lord always bless and renew

    When the sun goes down and our world spins around

    I wish I was close, I wish I was close, I wish I was closer to you

    Everyday We Must Try

    Good morning my friend what’s going on?

    Can’t we all just get some love?

    I don’t pretend to right all the wrongs

    There’s more to life than what we’re thinking of

    I can’t stop believing there’s got to be a reason

    So don’t give up on us now

    Every day we must try

    The signs I see of love are evidence

    Our best days are ahead

    Everyone can make a difference

    We don’t need to look in book we’ve read

    To believe that there's got to be a reason

    So don't give up on us now

    Every day we must try

    I see it in your eyes I know you wonder why but don’t give up on us now

    Every day we must try

    Beautiful Day (When I See You Comin' Round)

    Early in the mornin’ I gotta get outside

    Head out to the ocean, gotta take that ride

    Say I know you may be sad, I know you may be blue

    But life is yours to life and a light may soon break through

    Hey pretty mama, it’s a beautiful day

    And every time I see you coming round’ that’s what I will say

    Pour me some coffee, talk to me bout’ love

    Listen to the sweet songs the little birds are speakin’ of

    I welcome the rain, so the seeds may grow

    I welcome the sun, smile and say hello

    Hey pretty mama, it’s a beautiful day

    And every time I see you coming round’ that’s what I will say

    Some people talk some people stare

    But oh won’t you put, your good vibrations into the air

    Hey pretty mama, it’s a beautiful day

    And every time I see you coming round’ that’s what I will say

    Shine Down

    If there was a wish that I could wish for you and me then I’d wish all our dreams to come true

    I’d dedicate this song to you in love and peace and hope to remember all the things we knew

    If you remember our love, when there’s a rainbow

    Won’t You Shine Down, Won’t You Shine – Shine Down on Me

    If there was a way that I could ride the sunrise down the coastline in and out of the deep blue

    I’d find a way back home to you thru rain; hail, sleet, and snow say I will be your lover thru and thru

    Won’t You Shine Down, Won’t You Shine

    Do you remember the breadfruit trees when we’d cook on the fire

    Do you remember Mount Irvine Bay where we broke down from flat tires

    Do you remember the colors that shined from the rainbow of desire

    Well I...I remember you

    Won’t You Shine Down, Won’t You Shine

    Cause Every day I love you just a little bit more a little bit more

    Smile

    I heard you say happiness is an island far away...but maybe it's right here and it’s a choice we have today

    Our ship could sail into the biggest waves...then would it really matter all of the money that we’ve saved

    Someone said that loneliness, it's nothing but a dream...and is this moment here really what it seems?

    Don't you worry a‘bout your life now wherever you may be...there’s a light inside of you and inside of me

    Cause all I want is to see you happy

    And every day get what you need

    Cause I...I want to see you smile

    Cause I...I'd go a million miles

    Through every test or trial, I want to see you smile

    There's a spark of life in every single tree, there's an energy in every living thing

    In the laughter of a child and in every melody, we can be reminded of the things we really need

    Cause all I want is to see you happy

    And every day get what you need

    Cause I...I want to see you smile

    Cause I...I'd go a million miles

    Through every test or trial, I want to see you smile

    Make Me a Satellite

    Every one of us falls down...

    Sometimes...

    And lately I wish that you’re around

    We always move from town to town

    I’m feelin’ the wind under my clothes

    And feelin’ the sand under my toes

    Would you make me a satellite?

    Would you give me some wings tonight?

    Cause all I could do

    Sometimes all I can do

    Is think of my way back home to you

    High above all of the clouds...

    Looking down...

    Say maybe someday you’ll be found

    Someday somewhere out of bounds

    I’m feelin’ the wind under my clothes

    And feelin’ the sand under my toes

    Would you make me a satellite?

    Would you give me some wings tonight?

    Cause all I could do

    Sometimes all I can do

    Is think of my way back home to you

    Hawaiian Christmas Song

    If everyday we could give like Christmas

    Just give out love and hope to the world...

    Well underneath the mistletoe I'll give you

    Love and hope and whichever way that we may go we will say

    Hey, hey when it's a bright Christmas day

    Mele Kalikimaka we'll say

    We'll sing mele kalikimaka

    Mele kalikimaka

NOTES

The vibe is similar to prior albums but the songwriting has grown in many aspects. Check out the 'Hawaiian Christmas Song' and 'Make Me a Satellite' for a good feel of the album's content.
