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


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


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


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