When I Hear Hawaiian Music - Mel Peterson

When I hear Hawaiian Music I think of you
The strains of "Sweet Leilani" make me blue
And when they play "Across The Sea" my eyes fill with tears
Memories of the past haunt me through the years

And whenever shadows fall, "Hawaiʻi Calls"
"To You Sweetheart Aloha" they seem to say
When they play the steel guitar my heart goes where you are
When I hear Hawaiian music I think of you.
