about

Songkites supports Cambodian songwriters to write, record and release creative, original music. This album is the result of a six-month period of workshops and recording sessions with 12 amazing young Cambodians.

Songkites is not a competition. It is a supportive community of songwriters who inspire and challenge each other to express their originality through music.

The name ‘Songkites’ is inspired by Cambodia’s famous musical kites, Kleng Ek, which produce melodic tones as they fly. We imagine each original song here as a ‘songkite’ – released and flying free with the songwriter holding the string.

Thank you for supporting original music in Cambodia. All profits from the sale of this CD return to the songwriters and future seasons of Songkites.

Track Name: ប្រពៃ (Propey) - Journey of Heart
I believe that someday you and me
You and me
We're gonna be together
Even if it takes forever
I think it doesn't matter

I believe that I will find my way
Find my way
To the place where I could stay
Stay with you all day
Da de da de da dum

Cos I will follow my heartbeat
It knows what I really need

Would you mind giving me
A little tiny space in your heart
It sounds so crazy
But I know I want your heartbeat next to me
And feel our journey of heart

I believe I'm just a daydreamer
Daydreamer
Who keeps dreaming day and night
Wishing you would stay by my side
And make everything feel right

Cos I will follow my heartbeat
It knows what I really need

Would you mind giving me
A little tiny space in your heart
It sounds so crazy
But I know I want your heartbeat next to me
And feel our journey of heart

Would you mind giving me
A little tiny space in your heart
It sounds so crazy
But I know I want your heartbeat next to me
And feel our journey of heart

Track Name: ប្រាក់ ចិន្តានីតា (Alexta Kava) - I Still Love You
I’m hurt when you leave me, oh baby
When will I see you face again?
Oh baby

Don’t you know
That I’m waiting for you?
Oh!
Don’t you know
That I still love you

When I close my eyes
You’re right next to me
But it’s only just a dream, baby
Today everything has changed
It’s not the same without you, baby
I only pray that you,
Come back to me
Oh!
Don’t you know
That I still love you

If you come back I’d do anything
To make up for my mistake
We could be sweet again
If you let me

Don’t you know
That you mean so much to me
Don’t you know
That I still love you

When I close eyes
You’re right next to me
But it’s only just a dream, baby
Today everything has changed
It’s not the same without you, baby

I only pray
That you come back to me
Oh!
Don’t you know
That I still love you.
Track Name: សេនតូសា ម៉ម (Sentosa Mam), ប្រាក់ ចិន្តានីតា, (Alexta Kava) - ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប (I'm Hurt)
គេបានបែកខ្ញុំហើយ ខ្ញុំមិនស្មានថាចឹងទេ
គេរត់ចោលខ្ញុំហើយ គេមិនវិលវិញទេ

បើគេគិតពីខ្ញុំ គេមិនធ្វើចឹង ទេ
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប់

As much as I have tried
You don’t seem to care
Don’t you think of me?
Don’t you feel my pain?
I know you don’t care anymore
But I still do

I’m hurt
I’m hurt
I’m hurt
I’m hurt

ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប
ខ្ញុំឈឺចាប់
Track Name: និគីនិគី (Nikki Nikki) - Home For Dinner
So many things aren’t right
I try to tell you some things aren’t worth the fight
If you open up your mind, show me your heart
It would help to fix these broken parts

I need you to listen, I need you to care
Like a bird with a broken wing, I fall to the depths of my despair

Come home for dinner, come home to each other
It really matters to me
Forgive me if I ask for too much, but forget about being judged
Cause I won’t judge

So tired, I would carelessly rest
You would carry me through my beautiful darkness
It was smart of me to keep my eyes shut
Safe in my room now
I miss that so much, yeah

Never needed you to listen, never needed you to care
It was all too good I wish there was some left that I can spare, so I said

Come home for dinner, come home to each other
It really matters to me
Forgive me if I ask for too much, but forget about being judged

No matter what you are, no matter what you do
You’ll always be in my, you’ll always be in my heart
No matter what you are, no matter what you do
You’ll always be in my, be in my heart

Come home for dinner, come home to each other
It really matters to me
Forgive me if I ask for too much, but forget about being judged
I said come home for dinner, come home to each other
It really matters to me
Forgive me if I ask for too much, but forget about being judged
Cause I won’t judge
Track Name: កាន់ ពេជ្រ (Kan Pich) - Who I Am
Look at the clear blue sky
I wish I could fly like a bird
Sleep in a peaceful place
Where I could hear the song that I love

It's time to break out from the fakes
There's no more room left in the shade
For my life, where I can bring back my smile

Ink may stain my skin and mind
But this black diamond brightly shines
In the sky, where I feel I could always be

Hey! Don't tell me what to do
I can run my life
I am not afraid
Stop! Stop painting my life
I am strong enough to stand on my own

Let me walk my way
I'll brighten my day through the dark
If you can let me go
Then you will know
You will know

It's time to break out from the fakes
There's no more room left in the shade
For my life, where I can bring back my smile

Ink may stain my skin and mind
But this black diamond brightly shines
In the sky, where I feel I could always be
To be who I am

Hey! Don't tell me what to do
I can run my life
I am not afraid
Stop! Stop painting my life
I am strong enough to stand on my own
