Kainoa - by James Lono Taka

I'm waiting on a warm and sunny seashore
Yearning for the one that I adore
My love for you is true
I'm thinking of you
Forever I will love you, Kainoa

I see a sunbeam dancing on the waters
Surfing on a wave that comes to shore
The promise in that beam
Is a long awaited dream
That tells me that you love me, Kainoa

Now day is done the sun sets, Kainoa
Stars are peek-a-booing from above
The moon gets brighter still
In my heart I feel a thrill
The tradewinds say you love me, Kainoa

The silv'ry moon is shining o'er the land
Casting palm leaf shadows on the sand
They dance beneath the moon
While the breezes hum a tune
They do this 'cause you love me, Kainoa
