Track Name: Seattle Sunshine
Lyrics -

Its ya intellect that I check every millisec
Feel the chest heart beat racing down the intersection
such a great change from the rain drops
See the pain stops when we share the same spot
Could it be the way you carry yourself?
5 foot something with a face thatll melt
Any snow storm coming snow flakes and ya smell
Reminds me of some home cooked lovin and well
i just want to hold you close, and let go
fold any past hurt that I cant control
cold days in the winter time, see the thing that im
loving most about you has got to be your inner-shine
rockin no make up, and no Gucci flip flops
how you got a strong heart for hip hop
sick drops in the lab, inspired by you
the way you motivate writing when its half past two
A.M on the dial, I gotta be wild
for you, I run around plus a million miles
what I dont understand is the outcome if
our souls mixed together like an alchemist
i wish and pray hard hoping for the day God
youd shine forever instead of it being your day job

hook -
could it be your beauty? I dont think so
so I sink low staring out my window
see you shine bright so I cant stare long
so I show love through the gift of song


let me integrate my love through my vocals
polar opposites attract so I laugh cause im hopeful
rest your head on the side of the beach
as I reach in my bag give you something to eat
ham and cheese no mayo made it cause im grateful
tasted it twice a right blend of all flavors
im not major, just a poet at large
if we do end up together then im promising hard
times thatll follow mixed in with the best
yes well struggle with the hardest thump in our chest
forget the criticism im thinking on a higher intuition
fishing on a line to reach a vision
a girl like you deserves the best not to say that im the best
but recognition is a vex
sex is a special very intimate thing
so its something I aint doin till I slip on a ring
unlike most cats that just want you because
love, im koo to end the night with a hug
and maybe a second date when I next see you
Seattle Sunshine cause I feel you too
Track Name: Gowe - By the Sea
I've seen you change a lot you seen me grow up
From when my flow sucked threw shows but no one showed up
And so what you still had my back through the rain
Its crazy when I think about the change insane and lately
They show me love so when I spit I represent you
The 2-0, through gowe 6'ing instrumentals
Killing any beat in itself, Im speaking
myself so when the heat peeks im keeping it seeking for help
You light my eyes up when the night falls
So I slow down on I-5 to get a better picture
You're so pretty
I could leave but I would miss ya
And to breathe in the sea is where the air is never crisper
I've seen people leave but imma stand right here
So if the spotlight shines
you're gonna be right there
But tell me if I had no rhythm or flow
Would you still have a place in the city for gowe

Hook -
If I couldn't paint a picture with my words,
Or bring you bright lights with a stage
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?
If I couldn't fly around to all the different towns
And represent you with my sound
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?

I had a passion to write the pen was glued to my hand
When I was writing these poems they were forming a band
Alone did I stand my dreams still intact all the times
I was smacked for even mentioning rap
Now my folks love it and they just came to a show
They don't catch all of the words but they applaud for gowe
And as a son, that brings a big smile to my face
So When im done I'll leave the bright lights of the stage and recline
reminisce on the times like my first battle At the Nippon kan theatre
I lost that one Or my first out of state gig
and the crowd was small Or the time we didn't have a stage at terry hall
But we still rocked it, and its for the love of the art
And a rest in peace goes out to the dearly depart
So I bump biggie smalls one of the best emcees
While I zone out at my spot as I reflect on me

Hook -
If I couldn't paint a picture with my words,
Or bring you bright lights with a stage
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?
If I couldn't fly around to all the different towns
And represent you with my sound
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?

I used to sit at this bench and just write rhymes
So I could see the city lights and memorize the skylines
So when I closed my eyes
I would see without seeing you
It was beautiful the nights were so colorful
And now that I've grown up I return to the spot
And take a seat on this bench you got me thinking a lot
About the past and the present and
whether not I was destined
Or is it really a question will I compromise in my message?
Never, you also told me that my rhymes were too hard
That it was a bit complex and so I took it to heart
Now my parts are more friendly extending my hand
Not as abstract as then so we can both understand
See you relate to my words cause I experience you
Not to mention we been close since the days of my youth
So regardless of where I flew or might travel around
Where theres Gowe there'll also be Seattle my town

Hook (x2) -
If I couldn't paint a picture with my words,
Or bring you bright lights with a stage
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?
If I couldn't fly around to all the different towns
And represent you with my sound
Would you still love me? Would you still love me?
Track Name: Gowe Feat. Erin Kim - We Are The Lights (Remix)
Turn off the lights in here, baby
extra bright, I want y'all to see this
turn off the lights in here, baby
you know what I mean, want you to see everything
want you to see all of the lights

We can‘t stop, We’ll never stop
We are the lights, We are the lights

Until we’re shining all across the world
We are the lights

If you see us theres a purpose for the reason we shine
If you see us theres a purpose for the reason we shine

Verse 1

I started with a thought better yet an idea
To represent my city if you trying to go there
Then I watched it expand
while I tried to make plans
But it was a no go cause of my fears
Because of the dark, and I had no light
Blame it on the love cause I had no sight
And at night I would write thinking timing
was right In spite of the fact that she wasn’t my type
Kept on pushing got a deadly flow
Everybody listened and supported Gowe
Put on shows started painting poems but theres just one
thing that you’ve got to know
He is me and the reason I live
Wake in the morning and the reason I spit
Any fame I receive or attention I get
I would gladly lay down if I could show you His gift

Chorus
We are the lights
dark nights, hard nights, take flight
On sight, In life
we are the lights, we are the lights
hard life, enticed,
In light, been bright
every night
we are the lights

Turn off the lights in here, baby
extra bright, I want y'all to see this
turn off the lights in here, baby
you know what I mean, want you to see everything
want you to see all of the lights

Verse 2

If I was built as a light then I gotta shine bright
Any mic that I see guaranteed to ignite
When I write I would like to ponder on life
Instead of bars being nice am I honoring Christ
Am I caught in the ice with the pride and fame
Charge to the card and we’ll call it game And the flames
that’ll burn when im painting a word
Feel the rain on a verse like
planes or a bird up in the air like my thought process
Only drop tracks if
its hot no less I ain’t got no techs and I got no vest
Cause its not really me like a hot ol’ mess
Yes I invent, with the vision I see
Was caught for a minute in a prison im free
Read through my verse see the reason I breathe
And check my records as to why I MC!

Chorus
We are the lights
dark nights, hard nights, take flight
On sight, In life
we are the lights, we are the lights
hard life, enticed,
In light, been bright
every night
we are the lights

Turn off the lights in here, baby
extra bright, I want y'all to see this
turn off the lights in here, baby
you know what I mean, want you to see everything
want you to see all of the lights
Track Name: Gowe - Say Hello
Verse 1

He saw her enter by the hallway and the time was frozen
The time was afternoonish something maybe close to seven
It took him seconds just to step into the shoes he came in
Aiming just to tell her that he thought that he just witnessed heaven
But then he thought again and maybe it was kind of corny
Plus these pick up lines will never work they work against me
And so he took a breath and stepped outside his comfort zone
Pushed himself ahead just in hopes that he could say Hello

Chorus -

When you came into my life I had to say Hello Hello Hello Hello
And I never thought that I would have to tell you goodbye, goodbye

Maybe sometime in the future we can say Hello hello hello hello
maybe through the thick and thin this isn’t really goodbye, goodbye

Verse 2 -
She thought that he was kinda funny while hes getting nervous
And Not exactly what she had in mind as picture perfect
But vision blurred its kind of hard to see the worth in
Earthly standards reprimanded any chances to move forward with
Any type of guy because the past had really scarred her
Never thought that any man could replicate her father
In heaven or on earth and so it hurts to even bother
Chances to be given made the leap of faith much harder
Took a step, took a breath and even said Hello to him
Day to day, he would say, things that made him different
She would think and he would pray, couldn’t wait just to tell her hey
Hows your day? Are you free? Would you like to take a walk with me?
Yes, no, check a box right behind this note
Tell me yes and we’re good to go, hurry it up you move kinda slow
No just kidding, you’re cute when you’re mad
Plus I really like to make you laugh
Yes? Yes. I’m really happy that I said hello.

Chorus -

When you came into my life I had to say Hello Hello Hello Hello
And I never thought that I would have to tell you goodbye, goodbye

Maybe sometime in the future we can say Hello hello hello hello
maybe through the thick and thin this isn’t really goodbye, goodbye

Verse 3 -
They would walk around the park until the sun was gone
That’s when he promised that one day that he would write a song
And dedicate it but she probably didn’t pay attention
She probably let it go and made an effort to forget it
A couple weekends down the road is when they graduate
With plans to separate cause she was going out of state
Following her dreams to be a singer writing music
While he went onto a college cause he loved creating graphics
Hours turned to days and then the days turned into months now
Not a word from either party partly cause of time now
And both of them has thought about the other through a song
Would they ever sing along see that’s the question they would ask
A dangerous position if you ponder on the future it’s
Out of your control better focus on the present tense
And even if its relevant, you have to try to let it go
At least you have no regrets the day you said hello

Chorus -

When you came into my life I had to say Hello Hello Hello Hello
And I never thought that I would have to tell you goodbye, goodbye

Maybe sometime in the future we can say Hello hello hello hello
maybe through the thick and thin this isn’t really goodbye, goodbye

[Gowe]
See I’ve been working on this rocketship, so I could blast off
Relax off a single if I could sing my way to your heart
And your part is simple just believe in where my ship Is headed
I know its crazy but its love
So lets try to let it
Forget the second guesses
X’ing out the checklists, when the credit is requested
I’ll invest it in a necklace
Put it around your neck and if it is a bit expensive
I know you’d never ask so I know that you deserve it
Verses on the surface of my mind is when I write them
When we meet I try to hide it, but inside I get excited
A passion that ignited so im asking who designed it
Cause to me im feeling brightest when I look inside your iris
And I is, just a light beyond the cloud
Trying to get this right cause I would like to make you proud
And I hope you get the message that ive written in my bars
And until the day I meet you I’ll just look up in the stars

[Chorus]
Here we go, come with me,
There's a world out there that we should see,
Take my hand, close your eyes,
With you right here, I'm a rocketeer,

[Travis Graham]
Let's fly, [Yo]
Nah I never been in space before,
But I never seen a face like yours,
You make me feel like I could touch the planets,
You want the moon, girl watch me grab it,
See I never seen a star this close,
You got me stuck off the way you glow,
I'm like, oh, oh, oh, oh
I'm like, oh, oh, oh, oh,

[Chorus]
Here we go, Come with me,
There's a world out there that we should see,
Take my hand, close your eyes,
With you right here, I'm a rocketeer,
Let's fly, fly, fly, flyy.
Up, up here we go, go. [2x]
Let's fly, fly, fly, flyy.
Up, up here we go, go. [2x]
Where we stop nobody knows, knows, knows.
Track Name: Gowe - Before Tomorrow
Verse 1

This is written for the victims of the earthquake
Trapped in a building stay trembling when the earth shakes
Could be my birthplace, or my house too
Rebuilding of my life without a how to
And so im tasteless, cause I don't taste it
Face glued to the tube then erase it
Blame it on the races or the past invasions
Of my home continent instead of human relations
Post in my status, inside im careless
With a couple thousand of miles apart I feel fearless
And see its not me, and so I feel fine
Put it in the backburner have a great time
But that lacks effort with bad track record
instead of back tracking we should really act faster
And keep after, we keep praying
And start to take action instead of just saying...

Hook -
If I could make it all a dream a dream a dream
Without the pain and suffering I seem to see
If we could walk alone, the places I would go
When this is gone, before tomorrow

Verse 2 -

I got a daughter,
She was laughing when I pushed her on a swing
Before the we both felt disaster
A second after,
Like a bad backlash in a fat crash
Pedal on the gas faster
I heard laughter,
Then I heard a wave crash,
Seeing glass float around my feet like ASAP
I couldn't really think or fully comprehend
And So I grabbed her by the hand in AN attempt
to flee the land
As I'm Running through the sand,
I see a house fall, sky scrapers on the verge of falling how tall
A bunch of rubble with a stream of blood around it
I tried to hide her eyes, but inside I couldn't stomach
so close that I could touch it, and I could breathe it
The smell of death crept inside my chest felt bulimic
The sight of body parts scattered laying in the streets
Im praying for the weak, hoping this is just a dream dream dream

Hook -
If I could make it all a dream a dream a dream
Without the pain and suffering I seem to see
If we could walk alone, the places I would go
When this is gone, before tomorrow

Verse 3 -
The worst case situation, we know and do nothing
We let our days past acting like we know nothing
And keep moving like we see a brother losing
Blood on the sidewalk, let me get white chalk
Thinking one minute that im proud of my community
For calling out a racist, uproar, unity
Ching chong ling feels like a public enemy
But then I see the news, and what the numbers telling me
Take a back seat, the false it pretends to be
Nuclear reactor, oh an epiphany
See now its real, because it starts effecting me
Let me make a phone call, homeland security
This isn't 'they are', a student or a racist
This is 'we are', a nation and the faceless
Staring in the face a tragic moment in time
I come with open arms, your struggle is mine

Hook -
If I could make it all a dream a dream a dream
Without the pain and suffering I seem to see
If we could walk alone, the places I would go
When this is gone, before tomorrow
Track Name: Gowe - See The World
Lyrics -

Pens on a pad with the lights on late night
Can't write cause the bass don't play right
Been around the day light feelings on my face like
Seen better days so I take this to trace life
Thinking back to a time when you
Never been there, everything new
Right before summer, brand new colors
Purple and gold, when I first met you
Thought that you were cool, so I said hello
Never would have knew, that our hearts would go
On a brand new adventure, that would last a couple winters
And i got a couple splinters when my heart fell through
Who knew feelings true
Something I would guard and I would shelter too
Giving it away was a risk I consented
But living life is short I refuse to regret it

Chorus

I close my eyes and see the world
And you so briefly cross my mind
And im reminded of a time and its alright
To let it go go go maybe we could let it go go go

So You can be a better you
And I can grow the same way too
You're not to blame its not insane
To really live and let it go go go
Maybe we could let it go go go yeah

Verse 2

Take a look around and you see nothing but them
Trusting, in your heart got you nothing
But in, real life in the right light
You'd really fight for this like it was something
It was hard but was worth it though
When ya song play yall know how the verses go
And now it Hurts your soul, so you turn it low
You want to trust all that happened was purposeful
Yes things happen for a reason
seasons Always teach 'fore leaving breathe in
Exhaling with the right attitude could
Save another heartache give you something to believe in
I never played any games with love,
Only trusted two times and I'm thankful cause
When I do meet the one that I know for sure
I could tell her shes the one I've been waiting for

Chorus

I close my eyes and see the world
And you so briefly cross my mind
And im reminded of a time and its alright
To let it go go go maybe we could let it go go go

So You can be a better you
And I can grow the same way too
You're not to blame its not insane
To really live and let it go go go
Maybe we could let it go go go yeah

Verse 3

They say learn from your past, hold nothing back
wipe the pain off like rain on the glass
Take a look at them while they moving kind of fast
Feeling pretty good like they knew it wouldn't last
While you risked what was closed to you
Your heart and your time stayed vulnerable
Now you sitting by the phone like they feeling to call back
Reminiscing and It hurts so you done lost track
Looking past all their flaws and grow
some things you cannot control
Lesson learned that it better ended now
Then to walk down an isle with a ring and a vow
So you wait, and you smile and you heal
By the week, by the month and you feel
Better than before life is a lesson
Underneath the pain and the rain is a blessing

Chorus (x2)

I close my eyes and see the world
And you so briefly cross my mind
And im reminded of a time and its alright
To let it go go go maybe we could let it go go go

So You can be a better you
And I can grow the same way too
You're not to blame its not insane
To really live and let it go go go
Maybe we could let it go go go yeah
