Track Name: Heiau
Father can you hear me now
I'm just one voice in the wind
Where the lava meets the sea
Chills run up and down my spine
There's a vision in my mind
Of some place that's been before me

Heiau Heiau
Lava stone sacred ground
Heiau Heiau
earth and sky rain and sun

Mother let your tears fall down
As I watch them hit the ground
The sound seems to be calling me
Children born within these walls
Your life upon the earth
A symbol of the soul within us all

Heiau Heiau
Earth and sun rain comes
Heiau Heiau
Lava stone sacred ground

Chant

E malama i ka Heiau
Malama pono i ka Heiau
Made from lava stone
Track Name: Love Has Come featuring Nadia
Love has come my way
Love is here to stay
Love has cleared the way
Could it be Love has Come

I was blind I could not see
till you gave your love to me
Now I know just who I am
Now I really understand
it's got to mean

Love has come my way
Love is here to stay I can see
Love has cleared the way
You can believe me when I say

I was searching high and low
Though I knew not where to go
Then one day I realized
When I looked into your eyes
I believe

Love has come my way
Love is here to stay I can see
Love has cleared the way
You can believe me when I say

Deep inside I could not hide
the way I felt back then
You restored my faded pride
when you became my friend
You became my friend

We were walking by the sea
when you turned and said to me


Love has come my way
Love is here to stay I can see
Love has cleared the way
You can believe me when I say

Love has come my way
Love is here to stay
Love has cleared the way
I know that Love has come
Now I know Love has come
Track Name: Kama'aina
Stuck on the road
No need worry
E' na Kama'aina comin for me
no need to hurry
It's the Island way

Family and friends
Love makes them strong
The door is always open
you know you belong
Laughter and music
You'll be glad you stayed

E' na Kama'aina
E' na Kama'aina

The usual place
down by the bay
Fishing with the children
Till the end of the day
You can believe it
What the old folks say

E' na Kama'aina people of the land
E' na Kama'aina

Way up Waimea way
Right down to Hanalei
There is no better place to be

E' na Kama'aina
E' na Kama'aina

There's no other place for me
I'm so happy just to be
E' na Kama'aina
Track Name: Dance
Come bring your baby and dance tonight
We play the music you feel alright
No shame no worry get on the floor
You dance one dance you'll want to dance some more

The band is jamming we feel alright
We move outside under the cool moonlight
The sand is soft the rhythm's in our feet
it keeps us moving to the jingo beat

Freedom it's alright to move about it
Freedom it's alright for you to

Dance won't you dance with me
Dance dance one dance with me
Dance won't you dance with me
come on and dance with me

Now that the music has got your soul
You feel as though you're out of control
Try to resist It's just a losing fight
Why not then dance until the morning light

Freedom it's alright to move about it
(fijian chant)
Freedom it's alright for groove about it
Dance
I wanna be free
Let the music carry me
All I wanna do is dance

Dance won't you dance with me
Dance dance one dance with me everybody
Dance dance one dance
Won't you dance one dance
Dance dance one dance
Won't you dance one dance
It's alright to move about it
It's alright to groove about it
Track Name: Deeper In Love
Deeper in love Deeper in Love
Together you and I we could sail away
Find some distant shore beneath the sun
Where children could sing with the birds in the trees
While we become deeper in love

Deeper in love than the moon and the sun
up above where the skies are so blue
Deeper in love is what I want to be with you

I can see in your eyes
What you need to know
Will I promise to stay by your side
If i could possess all your sweet tenderness
I'd stay with you the rest of your life

Deeper in love than the moon and the sun
Up above where the skies are so blue
Deeper in love is what I want to be with you

Take my hand
Take my heart
May we never be apart
These dreams that I share won't come true
Without you

Hawaiian verse

Deeper in love than the moon and the sun
Up above where the skies are so blue
Deeper in love is what I want to be with you

Deeper in love than the rain from above
Falling down when the sunlight comes thru
Deeper in love is what I want to be with you

Deeper in Love than the moon and the sun
Up above beyond skies so blue
Deeper in love is what I want to be with you
Track Name: Old Style Way
In a stone wood house
In the cool green shade
At the foot of the mountain
So far away
Sits a barefoot boy there born and raised
Singing songs
In the Old Style Way

In the Old Style Way
Life was so simple then
Unlike today in a world gone mad
Where eyes warm and bright
Turn cold and grey
There's a lot you can say
For the Old Style Way

As he works the land
He sows the seed
That grows into his destiny
Wind in his heart
Earth in his hands
He won't forget where he began

In the Old Style Way
Life was so simple then
Unlike today in a world gone mad
Where eyes warm and bright
Turn cold and grey
There's a lot you can say
For the Old Style Way

By the light of the moon
She comes to watch him play
As he sings to her the story of his life
The night ends to soon
He wishes she would stay
As his eyes see stars up above

In the Old Style Way
Life was so simple then
Unlike today in a world gone mad
Where eyes warm and bright
Turn cold and grey
There's a lot you can say
For the Old Style Way
