Black, white, brown and green were the color of the sands
The different shores that we enjoyed in this little paradise
We were waiting for the day when looking up to the sky
We could move forward a bit and help each other …

Out in the magic forest shinning emeralds in the rain
Kaliuea spitting fire so the land can change again
It might have answers for us something to help us wake up
It's the earth's little mouth singing to us we need to listen
Or Pele will scream very loud

Malama da aina
Malama da aina

Malama da aina
Malama da aina

Ancestors are still with them they can see them all around
Night walkers with their bright light they'll be always watching out
Giving us meaning we need to feel it and Lono will sing very loud

Malama da aina X9
