"Hawaii" as written by and Silas Utke Graae Joergensen Bo Rune Madsen....
You know time goes by fast like rain.
It swallows your every sound from whisper to rising howl.

Good luck trying to be someone
If you make it then you've won
You'll grow up to be someone

I can't go without you.
No, I need to have you.
Have you met someone?
Have touched the bottom?

The world is like you
Here times the charm
Like a dog it's breathing
They're just as lonely
And we all make mistakes once in a while

The world is like you
There times the charm
Like a dog it's breathing

And what's right beyond doubt
Things just didn't pan out
It's a movie set
It's a world constructed
I can't go without you
I know I got to have you
Have met someone?
Have you touched the bottom?

The world is like you
Three times the charm
Like a dog it's breathing
They're just as lonely
And we all make mistakes once in a while

The world is like you
Here comes the charm
Like a dog it's breathing

They're just as lonely
And we all make mistakes once in a while

The world is like you
The world is like you

    General CommentI think it's "it swallows your every sound" as opposed to just "swallows every..."

    General CommentThis is definitely one of my favorite songs in the album. When that "ahh ahh ahh ahh" number came with "the world's like you" it gave me shivers. Kinda uplifting actually.

    General CommentI like the part "Good luck trying to be someone/If you make it then you've won/You'll grow up to be someone".
    Ironically, it looks like the person in mention is never going to change at all, keeping it all the feelings and memories, so eventually he/she will be the same person as at the beginning and realizes his/her failed attempt to forget what he/she had before. It applies perfectly for long relationships that broke-up although love was hided for a while.
