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


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


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


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