01. Like A Star
Lyrics, Composed & Arranged by: 4beontaja

Even though deep yearning shines painfully, the moon shines coldly; the memories will always be in my heart, shining brightly Like A Star. Like A Star is a depressing ballad track which talks about a man, whose lover will always shine in his heart no matter how crestfallen he is. The piano serves as the instrumental of the track, and slowly unfolds the depressing lyrics, one by one…

Lyrics by: Ppalgangmeoliaen, Oh Ja Hyeon (CLEF CREW)
Composed by: Ppalgangmeoliaen (CLEF CREW), Shin Yun Soo (11:11)
Arranged by: Hwang Seong Jae (BJJMUSIC Hwang Gun Dan) 

The title track of Ryeowook’s debut mini album The Little Prince, is a ballad track that is inspired from Saint-Exupery’s classic novel of the same name. Ryeowook starts the ballad track off without any accompaniments, highlighting Ryeowook’s gentle yet sweet voice. The track then gradually builds up to its climax; this depicts the level of pain that a man is currently suffering due to love. The lyrics of the song is made up of conversations between the man and the protagonist of Saint-Exupery’s novel “The Little Prince”.

04. 알 수도 있는 사람 (People you may know)
Lyrics, Composed & Arranged by: Park Chang Hyun

People you may know, is a soft ballad track which describe the feelings a recently-broke-up person who sees his ex on the SNS recommendations list. Throughout the song, the man tries to say goodbye to whom he loved, yet it is extremely difficult and painful for him. The piano once again served as the instrumental of the song, slowly fading towards the end; as if the man gradually leaves his relationship behind.
