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


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


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


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