David Ford If there was a “Rising Star” award for brony music, I believe Koa would take it for the past year. Her submissions have been highlights of the recent P@D albums, and now this debut album further showcases her talent. With great vocals amidst an impressively diverse array of genres, Koa has truly taken her music “to the nines.” Favorite track: Broken Wings.

Talk to Me 03:32
So You’re feelin’ kinda low You ask me how I know It’s just because I know... you Oh I see it in your eyes And I really wouldn’t mind If you wanted someone to hold you ‘Cause when the night falls, I know it falls heavy But if you’ll let me, I can be your levy And pick you up again If your skies turn gray And the rain just pours for days Whatever the weather, You can always talk to me If your heart’s weighed down And your feet sink in the ground We can take it together You can always talk to me Hey If you’re not okay It’s okay to say You don’t have to fake it But If it hurts too much Let me come in clutch (do people still say that?) Together we’ll make it And if the night calls for you, don’t you worry I’ll be there with you in a hurry I’ll pick you up again You can tell me anything, I’ll hear it all If you’re tired of everything, give me a call I’m never giving up, I’ll never let you down I’m always just so glad that you’re around So I think it’s time you know That I’m not letting go, oh no Let me pick you up again

Cold shoulder, leaving me on “read” Real mature Aren’t we old enough to use our words instead? Or is this par for the course? I’m so sick and tired of the games that you play I’ve been keeping quiet, bottling in my brain But now I can’t deny it, think I’m going insane Tearing off the tethers, ripping off all the reins I’m a salt shaker, boutta pour it all out I’mma let you taste the bitterness in my mouth Don’t you brush me off, I’m not fooling around Said I can take a hit, but you’re the one on the ground Buck up all your courage and take a swing Put up your hooves and face the music, let me hear you sing I’m ready, what are you waiting for? I’m taking this mare by the horn - I’m a mad, mad horse My patience, I feel it running thin It’s been too long Just break it to me, I can take it to the chin Just tell me what’s going on Why we sitting still like time ain’t passing us by? Why you look away when I look you in the eye? Why can’t you just own it? You’ve got nothing to hide But I’ve been done braying and I’m ready to bite Celestia forgive me for the words in my head Trying to be patient but I’m clinging to threads I’ve already said too much, why don’t you respond? I’m waiting for you in the ring so bring it on

Now listen up! Stretch those, stretch those glutes Let's see some faster trotting Nice flexibility Good pace, keep it up We're gonna need all the wing-power we can get To break that record, smash that record Are we ready to do this, do this? Cloudsdale still needs water Let's give it all we've got Take off! Confidence, or no confidence, I need you, need you Are we gonna train hard? Are we gonna be strong? Are we gonna be fast? Record-smashing fast? Are we gonna train hard? Are we gonna be strong? Are we gonna be fast? Who's with me? (Get your numbers up) SUCK IT UP, FLUTTERSHY!

Broken Wings 03:49
Is it what you expected? The answer is no, I already know You're just like the others The sisters and brothers that came before you They looked just like you do Lemme guess, you wanna run away? "It's just a bad dream, can't be as it seems" Oh, but it can It's all according to plan The grinding of gears, the echoing screams That will forever haunt your dreams Once the blade is sunk in deep And sends you off to sleep Oh, the colors give me life Beauty that only destruction can bring Say goodbye to the light That will shine through what is left of you The colors bleeding from your broken wings I see your body shaking You wanna be free, but don't you see? You're too late There's zero chance of escape All of this wretched machinery Will be your last glimpse of scenery Hush now, quiet now, don't you cry Just kiss the world goodbye

Silent 03:33
I can't count the years since we all lost our voice And not a day goes by that I don't regret my choice I wish I had the words to make them change their ways I wish I had the courage to leave like Autumn Blaze Now there's a mare in front of me She's asking if I speak She must not know about the stream She says her name and then repeats And then slumps down in defeat And I don't know if I should dare to dream Lost track of all the things I've wanted to say All the thoughts I've held in so I can stay But we have peace now, and surely peace must be upheld But there's a mare in front of me and it seems she wants to help 'Cause rainbows won't light up the sky Unless you let it rain You can't give up your laughter 'Cause you're scared of a little pain

They really think they know what's best for us? Well, if that's what they think, they don't know much We can be just friends, just friends, just friends if we wanna be So are you dumb or just colorblind? Have you even seen his palette next to mine? Some things are just not, just not, just not, just not meant to be And one of them is him and me! Why can't you let a good thing lie? Quit getting wet, we're keeping dry Don't get ahead of yourself, we're doing just fine Just friends, just fine, just friends, just fine If I so much as stand next to you They say it's just so long before "I do"s Yeah it's all too much, too much, too much, too much for us Sure, I can count on you in a pinch But isn't that just what friendship is? Yeah it's all too much, too much, too much, think we've had enough Seriously, what the fSQUEE? Why can't you leave a good thing be? It's so damn clear to see That we don't need any help, we're doing just fine Just friends, just fine, just friends, just fine I can say "I love you" And I can say "I love you too" Without the lewd, lewd, lewd, lewd things that they want us to do What's wrong with you? I can be your shoulder And I can be your confidant Without the kiss-and-tell, one bed at the hotel Sail your ship right into hell Have you not seen Trixie Lulamoon? Can't you two get a fSQUEEing room?!

The cards are stacked against me, that much is clear They'd all just love to watch me disappear I'm feeling kinda disenchanted A puff of smoke, their wish is granted My "powerful and great" Turns colorless and gray The ultraviolet shines over the blue I'm seeing stars It's no illusion, I'm falling apart But the curtains hide the truth She smiled at me softly, her words so kind But I know better, I know, I know It's all a lie I'm sorry, Princess, please forgive me It's not just you who will outlive me When I look upon myself In the mirror, I see my eyes Filled with emptiness I felt All I can do is sit and cry Why'd they drive me away? I just wanted to entertain Fine, then have it your way I hope they know they caused this pain Simple mare, talent right With no despair and magic lights To show and make ponies' nights But all it ever brings is strife Life is asinine unless a casket pulls a massive heist Relaxing time, at last I'll find a lasso trap and then be fine Try my best, it's not enough this time Always bested and one-upped in life Seems my quest to be on top's a crime You got your wish, I'll flatten the monitor line

To the Nines 04:07
Step down from the runway Spotlight’s on me to stay Done up from tail to mane I’ll turn this town into a cabaret When the curtains have closed, And the lights are off, still I know Color isn’t limited by lines The stage doesn’t end with the show So I’m taking mine on the road I’ll make my every day divine Hold my head up high Make it sparkle, make it shine So alive, the world is mine Until the end of time, I’m taking it to the nines, the nines Darling, why the long face? Come now, don’t be that way Chin up, look to the sun And see a brand new beautiful day has begun If you find yourself a little lost, Take a break and a breath and fear not There’s no need to make a fuss Change can be hard, this I know But without change, we cannot grow Who knows? The future could be fabulous
