CD:

Like drowsy waters are thy deep-lit eyes, loveKealoha e malia ma i oe
And my heart the flower thirsting deep on hope's brink,Oia i kea loha i ke kino
Oh give me to drink thy tender sighs, loveUa kui a pa'a lei
Give me to drink, again, give me to drinkI wahi ho'o heno noka lani
The scent of your hair is here at my heart, love,Auhea wela oe kealoha
Old kisses burn softly along my veins, loveLa au ho'o ulu I ke kino
But oh, where are you and why are we apart, love Ia i la ka u a e pili a i
Without you naught of joy remainsI ka o lu o wai la
The rainbow in the sky aloft is gleamingUa la na loko i ka make make
The wind among the palms, is softly singingI ka nani o mai le ha he i
While far o'er the sea your voice calls me,I u he ne ika po-lio ma lio
Drowsy waters, by whose shores I lie dreaming.I ke one ma lua ka a ka wai



Mahalo to Larry W. Jones for the sheet music image.
