remember keys
AbAb chord
The light was leaving and the west it was blue
DbDb chord
The children's laughter sang
AbAb chord
And skipping just like the stones they threw
DbDb chord
Their voices echoed across the way
EbEb chord    
It's getting late


AbAb chord      GbGb chord           DbDb chord
It was just another night
       EbEb chord
With a sunset
      AbAb chord        GbGb chord         DbDb chord
And a moonrise not so far behind
            EbEb chord
To give us just enough light
    AbAb chord        GbGb chord             DbDb chord
To lay down underneath the stars
         EbEb chord
Listen to papa's translations
AbAb chord       GbGb chord                DbDb chord
Of the stories across the sky
             EbEb chord
We drew our own constellations


AbAb chord
The west winds often last too long
DbDb chord
The wind may calm down nothing ever feels the same
AbAb chord
Sheltered under the Kamani tree
DbDb chord
Waiting for the passing rain
AbAb chord
Clouds keep moving to uncover the scene
DbDb chord
Stars above us chasing the day away
AbAb chord
To find the stories that we sometimes need
DbDb chord
Listen close enough
EbEb chord    
All else fades, fades away


AbAb chord      GbGb chord           DbDb chord
It was just another night
       EbEb chord
With a sunset
      AbAb chord        GbGb chord         DbDb chord
And a moonrise not so far behind
            EbEb chord
To give us just enough light
    AbAb chord        GbGb chord             DbDb chord
To lay down underneath the stars
         EbEb chord
Listen to papa's translations
AbAb chord       GbGb chord                DbDb chord
Of the stories across the sky
             EbEb chord
We drew our own constellations
