We Have To Go Back 2010
a song from her musical THE MORNING.

We Have To Go Back
 by Ada
 
 We have to go back and save our kind
 We know what's right -- don't fight
 Save the inn.
 
 Don't stay, save the hotel!
 We will go and save them,
 Right now!
 
 We have to go back and save our kind
 We know what's right -- don't fight
 Save the inn.
 
 I know what it feels like
 We must go, save the hotel
 Right now!
 
 We have to go back and save our kind
 We know what's right -- don't fight
 Save the inn.
 
I'm Lost In The Sea And I Don't Know What To Do (2007)
a song from her film THE WHITE CRYSTAL (2007).


I'm Lost In the Sea And I Don't Know What To Do
by Ada

Why
Are you all alone?
Are you in some town
That you can go and moan
But all you have is luck.
Some luck!

When you're out at the sea and you don't know what to do,
Everybody's lost in the waves and dew.
Everybody knows what to do ,
But I just
Sit here and do nothing to do it.
Do it.

When you come out, you feel like you have to hide his bound.
To go free:
Wish you could have wings to fly away but you didn't really have them to stay.

You think that everyone's going to be proud of you,
Everybody's going to be laughing and cheering,
Everybody's going to like to see you again to life.
Oooh.

When you're finding a White Crystal,
When you are inside me,
Just listen to them talking and one sweep of them you'll be
Gone.
Well, what do you think.

What happened to you?
When you come out, Tinkerbelle?

Coco: Meow!
      I think that it might be very sophisticated...
Mimi: Don't!
Coco: Meow!
      Ok, um, the ship is going to be docking!

Ahh - do you really realize?
Hello?

Is anybody here, or is someone behind me?
It's a sting that's behind me,
But who would know?

Am I dumb?
Or am I listening?
Am I just dumb or is it really just something I have to keep control of?
Am I just a slave, or do I have to be so mad at him, 'cause why do I have to be so mad.
It's so dumb.
I don't have to be so mad in the first place.
Why does anybody going to see what I am?
Why does anybody have to know who I am?
Why does anybody have to be in control of me?

Why do I have to go around in this sled?
I have a big baron on my face and I don't know what to do.
I really don't know but why can I keep up complaining and then - Oh My!

What do you think of this mess we're in?
Kidnapped first and then sent to sea?

How do you dock? How do you get out of control?
How do you see
Where to go?
Everybody's got their happy joys and everybody's free!
Just take away your hand and figure out who is there and what is keeping you  from
Going back.
Going back to the future!
Why do you have to go?
Into the go, 'cause you never have seen the snow.
When you're lost in a dream you fell in a stream
Then you're lost , definitely.
You do not where to go
You do not know why
You are
In the ville, 'cause you never know how you can get anywhere 'cause you are
Tinkerbelle.

The Hill (2008)
Composed and played by Ada, recorder track by Henry.
The Hill

There was a stream around the hill.

Your gravestone was on top, covered with flowers and cards

The Hill. That Hill.
 
Ada's Number Song (2006)
The printer is broken, and Ada reads the results, over dubbed, with a little Garage Band accompaniment.

Marshmallow (2006)
This is a little demo Ada sings, accompanied by psaltery strums.
Marshmallow, don't you cry!
Marshmallow, aren't you sly!
Marshmallow, don't you cry!
Marshmallow, aren't you sly!
Marshmallow!
Marshmallow, don't you cry!
Marshmallow, aren't you sly!

Yesterday I woke up in the morning
And I saw you on my bed
In a package full of marshmallows
You're the only one burned dead.

Oh Marshmallow, don't you cry!
The death is not too far!
Don't you know why you're (e)aten?
It's because you're so tastin'!
Oh yes, on mashmallow!

Marshmallow, don't you cry!
Marshmallow, aren't you sly!
Marshmallow, don't you cry!
Marshmallow, aren't you sly!
Aaai!

The Recycling Song (2006)
This is another little demo Ada sings, accompanied by psaltery strums.
Inside, inside, inside inside.
Inside, inside, inside inside.
Inside, inside, inside inside.

Oh the Recycling is part of really using stuff.
The recycling is part of reusing stuff.
The recycling is part of the reusing stuff

[end of the recycling song!]
Got My Wings (2013)
The teenaged Ada has kept right up with singing and writing songs. Here she is, singing a song written by her brother.
Got My Wings
Words and music by Ray 
Vocal by Ada

The sky
I'm in the sky

Finally got my wings
they are dark black things
not of Earth, or what's above

It's a tragedy
how this came to be
when a push became a shove

Calm - soaring, air's roaring past
Drop - shudder, kingpost won't last
Dive - flailing, wings failing fast
Stop - falling, time crawling past
Fall - fast, let my limbs go slack
Glide - down, glimpse an aerostat
Call - loud, but there's no call back
Glide - slow, make my wings go flat

Watch the Earth and sea
rushing to meet me
a lark's
what I wish I was

There's no substitute
for a parachute
so I glide
down from above

Watch the Earth and sea
rushing to meet me
stuck with this thing 
and all its flaws

Landed on a blimp
tangled up in gimp
it's not what
your thinking of

enervated, wings no more
I looked up, there's a door
opened up, second floor
sifting through the first-aid drawer

quickly wrapping, wings to sew
backstitch on the spinal row
hemming so the edge won't show
leather's thick, it's sturdy though

Thread
Goes back and forth
point away
not towards south, point towards north

Done
You'd never know
may not hold
but you'll reap what you've sewn

Stand
I need first-aid.
slightly cold
it's not as bad as they say

Stunned
hurts to walk
lost foothold
stumbling towards the airlock

Launch back towards the sky
but the wings belie
and a tear rips through the suede

Like a bat, I sprawl
let my suit take the fall
never buy shagreen low grade

Calm - soaring, air's roaring past
Drop - shudder, kingpost won't last
Dive - flailing, wings failing fast
Stop - falling, time crawling past
Quick - panic, pins come undone
Grasp - frantic, pull all straps down
Kick - deadweight, now I've got none
Gasp - stanchion, fell struck my crown

Time slows

Time froze

Seems like I can't
build a gadget
that runs smoothly
or to vend

Like the time I
tried to make a
souped-up junker
with two ends

Or the time I
tweaked a bomber--
wait a minute,
hold the phone

I remember
my flight training,
jumping at
the aerodrome

snagging branches
as you're falling
heightens drag
on you're way down

slacken muscles
bend your knees
feet first down can
minimize sound

break your fall
with both your arms
don't break your arms
but break your side

hold your head
so you are blinded
see no evil
dare to hide

Ouch you're in two but
it'll work for you but
there's no mending, still
robot legs are just now trending

I wake up to the world to
see where I've been hurled to
I've landed by a hill
the engine motor's still - not starting

It's an easy fix just
give it a few kicks but
It'll start for now just
Wait until the sound - it starts up

Slowly

Sit up

Stand up


Alive
Please tell me why
Alive
Lift off and fly

Finally got my wings
from a trav'ling king
not of Earth, or what's above

It's what he gave me
with a dying plea
when a push became a shove

It's like I've stolen these
Though not technically
Troops I manage to evade

I've been forced to flee
Fled from royalty
I've escaped from every raid

I'm soaring high
Lift off and fly

The right place and time
and these wings were mine
Taken from where such things lie

Stolen from the throne
They were all alone
Got my wings now I can fly.
Now I can
Fly.
Jump On Board - Epic Battle of the Spirit Theme (March 2014)
Ada is a big fan of Anime Theme Songs, and harmony.
Jump on Board!
Jump on Board!

I created this world so I could rule a land.
It seems as if nobody gives a helping hand!
I'm only doing this so I get get one thing
but I can't get information from the Spirit King!

Sharing with new friends,
Hope that life extends
Just hope to find out
Who I am, and what it's about!

Jump on Board!
Jump on Board!
That Time of Year (2014)
This is an older song that Ada re-orchestrated in Garage Band.
That Time of Year
By: Ada Iris Justine Graham-Lowengard, 2013
______________________________________________
(Away, away from here)

There’s a time of year where I can rest
away from always trying to do my best
And I’ve moved and 
I’ve contained my fears
I’ll wait
For that time of year

I’ve never been one to complain
But now it always seems it’s raining
And I can’t wear a jacket
I’ll wait
‘till I can rest again.

There’s a time of year where I can rest
away from always trying to do my best
And I’ve moved and 
I’ve contained my fears
I’ll wait
For that time of year

It’s time to pack and move on
I’ll get the job done on time, this time
But if you don’t get off soon,
you’ll slow-
-ly meet your demise

There’s a time of year where I can rest
away from always trying to do my best
And I’ll move and 
I’ll contain my fears
I'll know
That that time is near.

(Away, away from here)
Stars Open Up
A song from 2015's collection The Locked Door, redone in 2017
Ah...

Stars open up, open up like a daisy
Daisy in the sky up above.
Where're you gonna find, where're you gonna find a fast snow
While you're cookin' on your stove?

Color turns to light, and light into air,
Light particles are everywhere
But you see them
But you can't see them,
'Cause they're tiny
And you can't see them.

Stars open up, open up like a window,
Window in the door of my house,
House across the street they didn't look inside their windows
They didn't look or have a chance.

Daisy blooms, but doesn't bloom until the time is right.
A person's like a flower, a flower made of light
 
Caramel cooking on your cook stove, while you are away
Burglars will still, and you can't change that
Pick the daisy onthe ground today
 
Daisy blooms, but doesn't bloom until the time is right.
A person's like a flower, a flower made of light
 
Color turns to light, and light into air,
Light particles are everywhere
But you see them
But you can't see them,
'Cause they're tiny
And you can't see them.

Stars open up, open up like a window,
Open like a daisy.
