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


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


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


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