Intro: CC chord G7G7 chord FF chord CC chord G7G7 chord CC chord

Verse:
CC chord                    G7G7 chord   
a long long time ago, there was a volcano.
FF chord                        CC chord             G7G7 chord
Living all alone, in the middle of the sea.
CC chord                          G7G7 chord
He sat high above his bay, watching all the couples play,
FF chord                 CC chord              G7G7 chord
and wishing that, he had someone too.
CC chord                            G7G7 chord                            FF chord
And from his lava came, this song of hope that he sang out-loud everyday,
CC chord             G7G7 chord
for years and years.

Chorus:
FF chord                 CC chord
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
     G7G7 chord                      CC chord
that you're here with me and I’m here with you
FF chord                               CC chord
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
     FF chord       G7G7 chord         CC chord
will send me someone to la-va

Verse:
CC chord                         G7G7 chord
He was singing all alone, turned his lava into stone,
FF chord                   CC chord                G7G7 chord
until he was on the brink of extinction.
CC chord                           G7G7 chord
But little did he know that living in the sea below
FF chord                   CC chord                G7G7 chord
another volcano was listening to his song.

Verse:
CC chord                                 G7G7 chord
Every day she heard his tune, her lava grew and grew
FF chord                        CC chord                  G7G7 chord
because she believed his song was meant for her.
CC chord                       G7G7 chord
Now she was so ready to meet him above the sea
FF chord                      CC chord                 G7G7 chord
as he sang his song of hope for the last time.

Chorus:
FF chord                 CC chord
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
     G7G7 chord                      CC chord
that you're here with me and I’m here with you
FF chord                               CC chord
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
     FF chord       G7G7 chord         CC chord
will send me someone to la-va

Verse:
CC chord                         G7G7 chord
Rising from the sea below stood a lovely volcano 
FF chord                      CC chord                 G7G7 chord
looking all around but she could not see him.
CC chord                                     G7G7 chord
He tried to sing to let her know that she was not alone,
    FF chord                G7G7 chord           CC chord
but with no lava his song was all done.

Verse:
CC chord                                G7G7 chord
He filled the sea with his tears watching his dreams disappear 
FF chord                          CC chord             G7G7 chord
as she remembered what his song meant to her.
CC chord                            G7G7 chord
And oh they were so happy to finally meet above the sea
    FF chord                      G7G7 chord            CC chord
and all together now their lava grew and grew.

Verse:
CC chord                              G7G7 chord
No longer were they alone with Hawaii as their new home
    FF chord                    CC chord                 G7G7 chord
and when you visit them, this is what they sing

Chorus:
FF chord                 CC chord
I have a dream, I hope will come true,
     G7G7 chord                      CC chord
that you're here with me and I’m here with you
FF chord                               CC chord
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
     FF chord       G7G7 chord         CC chord
will send me someone to la-va

  1. In multiple verses it says to play a G7 chord then a C chord, but I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be the other way round.
