She’s My Destiny (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1601)

Oh, sweet Lelani, will you marry me
We’ll live in a cottage by the peaceful sea
If you ask your mama, tell her to say yes
If you ask your papa, maybe he will bless

All day, I’m with my sweet Leilani
Strolling by the sea
All night, I dream of sweet Leilani
She’s my destiny

When sweet Leilani strolls along the shore
The palm trees wave and think she’s really neat
I could never want a love that’s any more
My heart is there at my sweet Leilani’s feet

All day, I’m with my sweet Leilani
Strolling by the sea
All night, I dream of sweet Leilani
She’s my destiny

Some day soon, she and I will marry
We’ll live in a cottage by the peaceful sea
Her gentle voice is like a sweet canary
Sweet Leilani is my destiny

All day, I’m with my sweet Leilani
Strolling by the sea
All night, I dream of sweet Leilani
She’s my destiny



Bora Bora Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1602)

If you like warm beaches and balmy air
Little grass roofed cottages every where
Then you’ll fall in love with Bora Bora
Kick back in Bora Bora in your easy chair

You could get to like the taste of fish and poi
Served on the balcony, just cover it with soy
You’re sure to fall in love with Bora Bora
Bora Bora is the place for island joy

A blue lagoon that seems to call to you
Mt. Otemanu reaches into skies of blue
Wahinis chase the guys around the bay
Bora Bora will make you wanna stay

If you go to Polynesia, say hello for me
The last time I was there seems like eternity
You’re sure to fall in love with Bora Bora
Love is in the air in the Bora Bora breeze

You’re sure to fall in love with Bora Bora
Love is in the air in the Bora Bora breeze



Island In The Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1603)

Find an island in the blue, blue, blue
Where all your dreams are coming true
And on that isle where love is true, true, true
You will find your one and only love

You can stroll together in the sand, sand, sand
Arm in arm underneath the moon above
She’ll be your girl and you’re her man, man, man
You’ll be sure to find your dream of island love

Just look at that big yellow moon
One kiss and you’ll be her fella soon
Then say some vows down by the bay
And you’ll allow her then to say

Let’s find a wedding ring, ring, ring
And send out invitations in the Spring
She’ll be your queen and you’re her king, king, king
Cause you know this is true, true island love

She’ll be your queen and you’re her king, king, king
Cause you know this is true, true island love



Anywhere You Are (Larry W. Jones 06/05/2003) (song#1604)

Your love has taken me
To paradise
Time has awakened me
To love in your eyes

An island kissed by tradewinds
And love I never knew
Music of guitars and violins
Made just for me and you

When I hold you in my arms
And look into your eyes
I’ll keep you safe from all harm
In paradise

An island kissed by tradewinds
And love I never knew
Music of guitars and violins
Made just for me and you

When I hold you in my arms
And look into your eyes
I’ll keep you safe from all harm
In paradise
For anywhere you are is paradise



Dark And Velvet Sky (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2003) (song#1605)

The night time velvet sky of island time
Comes to play upon the shadows of my heart
The moon upon the sea has just begun to climb
Toward the heavens to see if you and I are still apart

You strolled down the shore alone and went away
And left me with a mournful song that night
Love is now the moonglow of a dark and velvet sky
A song of island love that was betrayed

Sometimes I follow in your footsteps in the sand
Remembering our love was like a song
And then I hear the music of an island band
That reminds me of your arms where I belong
But then the dream will fade, the plans that we made
Now all that’s left of paradise
Is the moonglow of a dark and velvet sky

Beside the cottage gate when the moon is on the sea
I can’t wait to feel you in my arms in sweet ecstasy
Birds of paradise still fly across the moonlit sky
But my dreams are all in vain, all that remains
Is the moonglow of a dark and velvet sky

Birds of paradise still fly across the moonlit sky
But my dreams are all in vain, all that remains
Is the moonglow of a dark and velvet sky



Ring Of Love (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2003) (song#1606)

Where the moon shines on the water
That meets the golden sand
I held her in my arms
As I placed a ring of love upon her hand

There underneath the tropic heavens
When the moon was all aglow
We shared the time that we were given
And felt our love so tender grow

Where the moon shines on the water
That meets the golden sand
I held her in my arms
As I placed a ring of love upon her hand

Beams of the golden moon upon the sea
Danced in her eyes as I kissed her tenderly
We knew the magic of that night of bliss
Would bring us memories of nights to reminisce

Where the moon shines on the water
That meets the golden sand
I held her in my arms
As I placed a ring of love upon her hand



In My Loneliness (Larry W. Jones 06/06/2003) (song#1607)

Hawaiian islands in the blue
Remind me of love that was so true
I dream each empty night of you, in my loneliness

Every day I think again
Of how our love might have been
Until you’re here I’ll cry til then, in my loneliness

An ocean full of tears, it seems
Have flowed with dreams lost in the stream
But in my heart still lives a love that’s true
Lost in Hawaiian islands in the blue

The skies are fair but I’m so blue
Love was there and so were you
Hawaiian islands call me back to you, in my loneliness

An ocean full of tears, it seems
Have flowed with dreams lost in the stream
But in my heart still lives a love that’s true
Lost in Hawaiian islands in the blue

The skies are fair but I’m so blue
Love was there and so were you
Hawaiian islands call me back to you, in my loneliness



Only Next To You (Larry W. Jones 06/10/2003) (song#1608)

When I think of esctasy
A dream that only could come true
Is the time when you’re with me
My ecstasy is only next to you

It seems I’m dreaming endlessly
Of things with you I want to do
Please turn these dreams turn into reality
My ecstasy is only next to you

Darling, even when we’re far apart
My heart is always in your hands
May your love always impart
Sunshine as warm as island sands

Oh, how I pray you’ll never stray
If you did, my dreams would all turn blue
Darling, please return without delay
My ecstasy is only next to you

Until you’re with me on the isle
I’ll have a fragrant lei so fresh and new
Around your neck I’ll place it with a smile
My ecstasy is only next to you



Nau Ko’u Aloha Mau Loa (Larry W. Jones 06/10/2003) (song#1609)

Nau ko’u aloha mau loa
My love is yours forever
Nau ko’u aloha mau loa
May time itself our love ‘nere sever

Here where tradewinds whisper low
Our love will never end, no never
Nau ko’u aloha mau loa
My love is yours forever

You are my sweetheart, my love, my life
The islands sing their songs of love
Of you, my sweetheart, my darling wife
Nau ko’u aloha mau loa, my love

Never will I forget the moment our lips first met
Here on the sandy shore is where my love I swore
May time itself our love ‘nere sever
For my love is yours forever, come what may

Here where tradewinds whisper low
Our love will never end, no never
Nau ko’u aloha mau loa
My love is yours forever
Nau ko’u aloha mau loa



Lonesome As Lonesome (Larry W. Jones 06/10/2003) (song#1610)

All my friends are at the luau havin’ fun
I’m stuck here at home with my heart that’s on the run
I might as well have drowned in the deep blue sea
I’m just as lonesome as lonesome can be

Was loving her a big mistake, I wish I knew
Maybe there’s a way to break these lonesome island blues
But she’s as free as tradewinds in palm trees
I’m just as lonesome as lonesome can be

I know where she’s at tonight
Tiki torches burnin’ bright
At the luau eatin’ fish and poi
With all the island boys
My love’s still burnin’ bright
But it just ain’t right
For my heart to be so lonesome
While she’s havin’ island joys

Was loving her a big mistake, I wish I knew
Maybe there’s a way to break these lonesome island blues
But she’s as free as tradewinds in palm trees
I’m just as lonesome as lonesome can be

Yeah, she’s as free as tradewinds in palm trees
And I’m just as lonesome as lonesome can be



One For Waikiki (Larry W. Jones 06/10/2003) (song#1611)

Alone in Duke’s Canoe Club by the sea
Nobody here and my baby’s not with me
So, I’ll celebrate here by the shore
One time more
One for my island sweetie and one for Waikiki

It’s the same sad island song
About a girl who done me wrong
So, I’ll celebrate here by the shore
One time more
One for my island sweetie and one for Waikiki

Sometimes it’s hard to stay awake
Three AM is, after all, kinda late
Duke’s Canoe Club is about to close
Here where the tradewind gently blows
Well, my island sweetie’s gone with the winds
No use cryin’ over what might have been’s
So, I’ll just stroll down Kalakaua street
One for my island sweetie and one for Waikiki

It’s the same sad island song
About a girl who done me wrong
So, I’ll celebrate here by the shore
One time more
One for my island sweetie and one for Waikiki



Only In The Wind (Larry W. Jones 06/10/2003) (song#1612)

I sailed to Hawaii blue
To find a love that would be true
Someone said you can’t be sure
How do you know true love is yours
And will your island love endure

Someone said that island love is blind
The tropic sun and moon are intertwined
They’re there to trick you in disguise
They’ll only tell your heart more lies
True love is only in the wind in paradise

So I laughed and told them to go home
True love I had found in this tropic zone
But now my love has gone and I’m alone
Alone without my love in paradise

Now when someone asks me if I knew
My island love would prove to be untrue
I simply say I cannot tell them lies
The tropic sun and moon are a disguise
True love is only in the wind in paradise

Now when someone asks me if I knew
My island love would prove to be untrue
I simply say I cannot tell them lies
The tropic sun and moon are a disguise
True love is only in the wind in paradise



When Hawaii Calls (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2003) (song#1613)

The island love I want is the kind that lasts forever
Not one that’s nonchalant when Hawaii calls
This heart of mine will leave you, never
When Hawaii calls, when Hawaii calls

I can only stroll hand in hand in the springtime
And side by side in the winter, summer and fall
For your eternal island love, sweet as Maui chimes
When Hawaii calls, when Hawaii calls

Some island guys have told you, I’m sure
They would buy you the moon for a toy
The greatest joy I give is a love that will endure
From deep within the heart of this island boy

And if you wonder what I need in return
I only plead for something very small
Aloha, I love you, is what my heart does yearn
When Hawaii calls, when Hawaii calls

And if you wonder what I need in return
I only plead for something very small
Aloha, I love you, is what my heart does yearn
When Hawaii calls, when Hawaii calls



Love Has Begun (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2003) (song#1614)

The night has drawn the shades against the sun
Love has begun
The tradewind breeze now calls my lovely one
Love has begun
When nighttime stars begin to shine upon the bay
My heart calls to say, love has begun

The tropic moon is in its spelndor
It can’t be outdone
The island sun is no contender
For true love to be won
Time with you is always like fair weather
Together, love has begun

Here on the island by the deep blue bay
We stroll arm in arm beneath the moon
Sweet as Maui chimes is love the island way
Your every charm is like a lovely tune

Under the moonlight beams we kiss
And I hold you tight
Into the velvet night there exists
Dreams of sweet delight

When the tropic sun is high above
I pray for the shade to be drawn
Then at the setting of the sun
Together, love has begun



Just An Island Man (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2003) (song#1615)

As the band played island songs, we danced along
But I knew I didn’t have your grace
As we danced across the floor, I wanted nothing more
Than to tell you something face to face

Your mainland hospitality is fine
And I like your choice of top shelf wine
But let’s go get some fish and poi
And let me tell you all about this island boy

I’m just an island man
I eat my spam from a can
My little grass shack is by the sea
I work hard every day
And then I fish down by the bay
And, so, I guess I’ll have to say
Just an island man is all I’ll ever be

There’s no air conditioner in my old pickup truck
So, if you’re thinkin’ luxury, you’re outta luck
And my good old buddies in West Makaha
Well, they don’t study books or do the Cha Cha

And I’d rather paddle my old outrigger canoe
Across the bay to watch the setting sun
Than be saddled with a wealth of things that’s new
And try to live a dream that’s bound to come undone

I’m just an island man
I eat my spam from a can
My little grass shack is by the sea
I work hard every day
And then I fish down by the bay
And, so, I guess I’ll have to say
Just an island man is all I’ll ever be

I work hard every day
And then I fish down by the bay
And, so, I guess I’ll have to say
Just an island man is all I’ll ever be



Pandanus Trees (Larry W. Jones 06/11/2003) (song#1616)

I know of an island in the sea
A place that calls to you and me
With mountains high enough to climb
And life is slowly lived on island time

All the world could belong to us
But I’d trade it all for those leaves of pandanus
Pandanus trees so luxuriantly
Calling to you and me

There are pandanus trees to shade us from the sun
There in the tropic breeze where two hearts beat as one

Yes, there are pandanus trees
Where island love is in tune
An island with a tropic breeze
And a south sea island moon

All the world could belong to us
But I’d trade it all for those leaves of pandanus
Pandanus trees so luxuriantly
Calling to you and me

Yes, there are pandanus trees
Where island love is in tune
An island with a tropic breeze
And a south sea island moon



Lost With The Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2003) (song#1617)

There’s no sweet dreams left for me
Of island days that used to be
It seems they’ve gone somehow
Lost with the breeze

Your postcard from Hawaii blue
Scarred with a tear or two
A wilted lei that once was new
Now lost from view

A few dreams that still stay
Are of each night and day
Before you went away
For those I still pray

Tonight the same old dream will start
But it won’t come with ease
It starts when your love departs
Lost with the breeze

Tonight the same old dream will start
But it won’t come with ease
It starts when your love departs
Lost with the breeze



Another Isle Another Shore (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2003) (song#1618)

Another isle, another shore
We’ll meet again, of that I’m sure
This same sweet kiss, this time of bliss
You’ll still be mine, I’ll still be yours

We’ll say Aloha ‘oe, goodbye for now
Our new love, even time will still allow
One day we’ll renew what we’ve avowed
Aloha ‘oe, my love

When I feel soft island breezes blow
I’ll remember your sweet smiling glow
And, until then, I’ll pretend
That Aloha ‘oe just means hello

Now let me feel your arms once more
Let me kiss the lips that I adore
Parting is such sweet sorrow
But I know we’ll meet again, for sure
Another isle, another shore

Now let me feel your arms once more
Let me kiss the lips that I adore
Parting is such sweet sorrow
But I know we’ll meet again, for sure
Another isle, another shore



Born To A Sailor Man (Larry W. Jones 06/12/2003) (song#1619)

I’ve been an island man since I was a babe
Born to a sailor man free as the winds of trade
No ohana love there to care for me
Just a love of life for my destiny
My home’s on any island where I may be

Ain’t nobody callin’, crawlin’ ain’t for me
I may be alone, but pity I don’t see
No torch or light burnin’ in some cottage window bright
But I’m free as a bird in endless flight
Just an island man who’s disappeared from sight

I’m driftin’ along with an island breeze
Strollin’ different sands, sailin’ seven seas
Like shore birds or eagles that soar
Just an island man, never askin’ for more
Just an island man, never askin’ for more

Ain’t nobody callin’, crawlin’ ain’t for me
I may be alone, but pity I don’t see
No torch or light burnin’ in some cottage window bright
But I’m free as a bird in endless flight
Just an island man who’s disappeared from sight

Just an island man, never askin’ for more
Just an island man, never askin’ for more



The Island Life (Larry W. Jones 06/18/2003) (song#1620)

I don’t care for strivin’ while I’m drivin’
Or mainland cities where rage is rife
That’s why I’m contrivin’ a way of survivin’
Just give me the island life

Eskimos think it’s pleasin’ to live life freezin’
And just rub noses with your wife
But I’ll take sunshine cause snow, I decline
Just give me the island life

Oh, by the way, a cottage by the bay
And a tropic moon up in the sky
An easy day where palm trees sway
Is my simple recipe for paradise

Some like sad tunes, but I’d rather swoon
To an island tune as man and wife
Bring on the monsoon any afternoon
Just give me the island life
Just give me the island life



Her Aloha Smile (Larry W. Jones 06/18/2003) (song#1621)

Leilani is my girl and I love her so
She’s my island girl where breezes blow
When the tropic sun is high in the sky
She’s the coolest girl to ever catch my eye
Leilani is my true love, that I know
Her Aloha smile is why I love her so

When I’m feelin’ down and I have no joy
She comes over with a dish of fish and poi
We stroll down the beach in the island sand
She’s my island girl and I’m her island man
Leilani is my true love, that I know
Her Aloha smile is why I love her so

When I call her up on the coconut wirless
She never lets me down, her Aloha means yes, yes
She’s the sweetest thing on the island shore
I could never ever ask for anything more

In the balmy night with the moon on the sea
Leilani and the palms sway to the hula breeze
When I kiss her lips and hold her in my arms
A lunar eclipse could never hide her charms
Leilani is my true love, that I know
Her Aloha smile is why I love her so



Happiness Without Number (Larry W. Jones 06/18/2003) (song#1622)

Happiness without number, love on an island shore
Every tropic day I feel so blessed, just like the day before
Happiness without number, sweet as an island violin
Ever since you came, my heart has been aflame
That’s the day my ship came in

Happiness number one was when I found you
I always knew that love would find a way
Happiness number two is still your love that’s true
The kind of Aloha love that never goes away

Happiness without number, love on an island shore
Every tropic day I feel so blessed, just like the day before
Happiness without number, sweet as an island violin
Ever since you came, my heart has been aflame
That’s the day my ship came in

Happiness number three was under those palm trees
When the tradewinds whispered that you would be my love
And I’m so glad that you’re the one in love with me
Cause it’s you that I’ll be forever dreaming of

Happiness without number, love on an island shore
Every tropic day I feel so blessed, just like the day before
Happiness without number, sweet as an island violin
Ever since you came, my heart has been aflame
That’s the day my ship came in

Happiness without number, sweet as an island violin
Ever since you came, my heart has been aflame
That’s the day my ship came in



The Only Thing (Larry W. Jones 06/18/2003) (song#1623)

Is that the yellow moon upon the sea
Are those beams a measure of trigonometry
The only thing I can focus on is you in front of me
My eyes can only see you in paradise

What is that fiery streak across the sky
Is it a star to seek a wish for love tonight
The only thing I can focus on is a dream before my eyes
My eyes can only see you in paradise

I think I must be on a magic island in the blue
Magic is this night when I’m so in love with you

I know we’re not the only ones here, you and I
There must be a thousand couples strolling by
I’ve seen everything but here’s one thing that’s true
The only thing I can focus on is you

I know we’re not the only ones here, you and I
There must be a thousand couples strolling by
I’ve seen everything but here’s one thing that’s true
The only thing I can focus on is you



True Heart Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 06/18/2003) (song#1624)

True love can’t be bought from the five and dime
Sweetheart, I’ve told you time after time
There’s only one place it can be found
It’s here in this true heart of mine

Stroll on, stroll on down that lonely shore line
When you find yourself crying, you’ll know the sign
No matter how you’re trying, true love you won’t find
It’s here in this true heart of mine

The fragrant lei that I gave you was meant for love divine
Island love that’s here to stay when the sun goes down
One day you’ll think back to when you were mine
To island days before you left me in old Lahaina town

Winds will blow, but they’ll be so cold on the mainland
There’ll be times of woe, and I know you’ll miss me sometime
When you go, you’ll know where true love is
It’s here in this true heart of mine

When you go, you’ll know where true love is
It’s here in this true heart of mine



Be Sure (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1625)

Be sure to always look for a rainbow
On an island where soft breezes blow
You might one day find a pot of gold
And a lot of love your arms can hold

Be sure to walk on the sunny side
Jack climbed the beanstalk in a giant stride
A treasure might come sailing on the tide
A love in which your heart can abide

Be sure to treat her with all tenderness
Time still is on your side
To love, your heart will surrender when she says yes
True love is something you can’t hide

Be sure to dream of islands in the blue
One day your sweetest dreams may come true
And I’m sure you know who’s dreaming too
True love is always in my dreams of you

Be sure to dream of islands in the blue
One day your sweetest dreams may come true
And I’m sure you know who’s dreaming too
True love is always in my dreams of you



Come To Me (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1626)

Come to me, I’m like a lonely island in the sea
What I need is your sweet love, I’ll say out loud
I’m a lonely island man, alone in a lonely crowd

Where breezes play, tradewinds of love still have their say
But where palm trees sway, love has gone away
All I hear are cries here in my lonely paradise

I heard that you could find love in a tropic zone
So, why is it that I’m strolling here alone
Don’t you know how much you mean to me
Come to me, I’m like a lonely island in the sea

I’m on my own, what lies ahead is still unknown
Will I have to wait to see if love will come to me
My current state won’t let my heart be free
Come to me, rescue my heart from the lonely sea
Come to me, rescue my heart from the lonely sea



E Ku’u Lani (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1627)

E ku’u lani, my heavenly one
You are my beloved
E ku’u lani, my heavenly one
You’re my dream of island love

So happy is your pleasant smile
So pleased that you are mine
No finer one lives on the isle
E ku’u lani, your love is like sweet wine

I delight in bringing to you joy
E ku’u lani, my heavenly one
A dream you are of every island boy
Your loveliness can’t be outdone

E ku’u lani, heavenly are your eyes
In heaven itself you must belong
But here you are in paradise
E ku’u lani, heavenly one, my song

So ends the mele of my heavenly one
E ku’u lani



Undeniable Love (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1628)

Undeniable, you look so lovely by the shore
Undeniable, it’s true that I want you more and more
Soft as the moon that shines upon the sea
Sweet as the month of June that brought your love to me
I’m liable to say that it is

Undeniable, that you are my only dream
And I’m no longer just a lonely island in the stream
So, I can say, and I know it’s reliable
That my love for you is undeniable
It’s like a dream that’s hard to believe viable

That your love for me is undeniable too

Undeniable, that you are my only dream
And I’m no longer just a lonely island in the stream
So, I can say, and I know it’s reliable
That my love for you is undeniable
It’s like a dream that’s hard to believe viable

That your love for me is undeniable too



What A Change (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1629)

What a change a little island made
A big exchange for the mainland masquerade
A little flight of fancy, just taking a chancy
That I would find love that’s true

Yesterday was filled with gray skies
Today I’m basking in paradise
All I’m asking is for a change, a little trade
What a change a little island made

What a change a little island made
There’s rainbows I didn’t see before
Before I met you down by the bay
Now I know what island love is for

My world has changed and I can’t dismiss
That it was with just one little kiss
What a change a little island made
And, darling, for these tradewinds and you
I would never trade
What a change a little island made



Paradise Deja Vu (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1630)

Have you ever strolled down this same island shore
I’ve endeavored to remember when I’ve seen you before
I’ve seen love glowing like an ember deep in those same eyes
You must have been in my dreams of paradise

That sundress you have on is from the same tropic zone
And the smile you’re wearing is really no surprise
I’ve seen the same before on some tropic island shore
You must have been in my dreams of paradise

Some events are deja vu when you know you’ve seen a love that’s true
Some are heaven sent where breezes blow, just like my dreams of you

And so it is, I know it is that we have met before
Somewhere in time you were mine on some island shore
It’s so nice to find that you’re still mine with no disguise
You must have been in my dreams of paradise



Our Island Romance (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1631)

Who would have bet that the time when we met
Was a fortunate thing not known in advance
You dropped your ticket, I picked it up by chance
That was the spring of our island romance

On the flight to Hawaii on those silver wings
The time passed so fast and we laughed at everything
I held your hand like I was in some trance
Headed to tropic sand and our island romance

We danced in the sand to steel guitar bands
The night was warm and the moon was aglow
I even remember, we believed in love’s ember
And when we said goodnight, I didn’t want to let go

Well, that vacation is over, but we’re still in clover
And it all started with just a glance
We’re so in love and we thank those stars above
For a fortunate thing not known in advance
That was the spring of our island romance



Inside The Reef (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1632)

Over there, somewhere inside the reef
My true love strolls the sandy shore
She’s still waiting there, is my belief
For my return to love that’s evermore

Over there, somewhere inside the reef
My true love stands at her cottage door
I’m still dreaming here, heart full of grief
For my return to her lovely island shore

She’s so far across the sea
Those steel guitars still call to me
And in my heart I know that soon
I’ll return to her island in the sea
To my true love underneath that lover’s moon

We’ll meet again iside the reef
I’ll hold her close just like before
Nevermore will our hearts know grief
For my return to love will be for evermore



Island Maiden (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1633)

As the bird of paradise that islands bring
Neath the swaying coco palm tree
Perched on a frond in tropic skies to sing
To sing a song of love for Leilani

Leilani, Leilani, island maiden sweet and fair
Sunshine itself has shined on thee
Island maiden with the long black hair

Your cheeks have known the rose of morn
Your voice is as sweet as Maui chimes
Dark eyes are those from polynesia born
Songs of you are loving words of rhymes

Leilani, Leilani, island maiden sweet and fair
Sunshine itself has shined on thee
Island maiden with the long black hair

My heart you have taken since the spring
And my love, I give it all to thee
From this dream let me not be awakening
My love is yours for eternity, Leilani

Leilani, Leilani, island maiden sweet and fair
Sunshine itself has shined on thee
Island maiden with the long black hair

Leilani, birds of paradise will never flee
Sunlight of gold will ever shine when you are there
Tradewinds of love will call from off the sea
And I will answer to the love that’s in the air

Leilani, Leilani, island maiden sweet and fair
Sunshine itself has shined on thee
Island maiden with the long black hair



Kona Coffee (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1634)

I’m fillin’ up the pot right here at the sink
Before I stroll out the door, I think of you some more
I’m workin’ nine to five and it’s drivin’ me to drink
Kona coffee, just like love, an island brew
Seems I never see a weekend, and not a sight of you

I keep talkin’ to the walls from one til five
And there’s only one thing that’s keepin’ me alive
Kona coffee, just like love, an island brew
Kona coffee, overflowin’ dreams of love that I once knew
Monday mornin’ I’ll be drinkin’ Kona coffee missin’ you

An island girl is born for island love
And this island man’s forlorn here by the sea
I hate to stay at home when there are stars above
And sit here all alone just drinkin’ Kona coffee

The moon is out there shinin’ while I’m in here pinin’
Before the night is done, before the mornin’ sun
I’ll be feelin’ as old as these grounds of
Kona coffee, just like love, an island brew
Kona coffee, cold as the love that I once knew
Monday mornin’ I’ll be drinkin’ Kona coffee missin’ you



No Sorrow In Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1635)

Some folks were born to live in sorrow
And I’m sure they are not few
But sorrow, a sad tomorrow, isn’t in my dreams
Cause I was born to live in Hawaii blue

I see those silver stars above me
And beams from a golden moon are shining too
I could never live in sorrow, I have a bright tomorrow
Cause I was born to live in Hawaii blue

The day we met, I took a bet
That we would fall in love
You smiled and said Aloha
And the rest, as history knows
Has been a life of love and laughter
Will last forever after
And I’ve found more
Than all the gold of those rainbows

I guess I’m more fortunate than some
My heart is filled with loving you
And as for sorrow, I’ll have none tomorrow
Cause I was born to live in Hawaii blue



I’m Through With Lovin’ (Larry W. Jones 06/19/2003) (song#1636)

Lovin’, I’m through with lovin’
Lovin’ you when you won’t be mine
Cryin’, my heart is still cryin’
Schemin’ of some way to find
A new love, someone answer please
An island where love’s in the breeze
Til then I’m through with lovin’
Through with lovin’ you when you won’t be mine

Dreamin’ is something that I try not to do
Dreamin’ is only for lovers and fools
I’m through with lovin’ and I’m through with you
Til a new love comes singin’ a love song that’s true

Lovin’, I’m through with lovin’
Lovin’ you when you won’t be mine
Cryin’, my heart is still cryin’
Schemin’ of some way to find
A new love, someone answer please
An island where love’s in the breeze
Til then I’m through with lovin’
Through with lovin’ you when you won’t be mine
I’m through with lovin’ since you won’t be mine



Local Motion (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1637)

Local motion, in Hawaii they’re doin’
One thing I know, it’s love that they’re wooin’
The tradewinds are sighin’, nobody’s cryin’
When local motion takes a notion for love

Local motion, it’s made for romancin’
It makes your feet wanna go dancin’
You’ll never be lonely, if you let only
Local motion find your emotion for love

You’ll see it in the day time
You’ll feel it in the night time
It’s not just an emotional dream
Local motion on an island in the stream

Local motion, it’s not an empty fake
In Hawaii, it’s true love, not a mistake
You’ll never be lonely, if you let only
Local motion find your emotion for love

You’ll see it in the day time
You’ll feel it in the night time
It’s not just an emotional dream
Local motion on an island in the stream

Local motion, it’s not an empty fake
In Hawaii, it’s true love, not a mistake
You’ll never be lonely, if you let only
Local motion find your emotion for love



Feet In Island Sand (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1638)

Hawaii, Hawaii, in peaceful oceans of waters blue
Your songs of island love keeps my feet in island sand
My feet in island sand

Hawaii, Hawaii, where dreams come true
Keeps both feet in island sand for this island man

Riches of the mainland don’t reach my way no more
My only dream is here, it seems, on this peaceful island shore

Hawaii, Hawaii, it’s only here I find
Songs of island love that satisfies my mind

Riches of the mainland don’t reach my way no more
My only dream is here, it seems, on this peaceful island shore

Hawaii, Hawaii, it’s only here I find
Songs of island love that satisfies my mind

Songs of island love
That satisfies my mind



Tradewinds Of Islands (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1639)

A place to be livin’, a place to be lovin’
The tradewinds of islands are callin’ me home
Memories were made then, I was still young then
And the bays were all painted the blue of the skies

A place just for livin’, a place just for fishin’
An island just for dreamin’ dreams that come true
Memories were made then, I remember her love when
The tradewinds of islands are callin’ me home

A place of Maui chimin’, mountains to be climbin’
The tradewinds of islands are callin’ me home
Memories were made then, ohana love was there when
I decided one day that the world I would roam

A place to be livin’, such sweet memories it’s givin’
A warm paradise, a place for livin’ and to die
Memories were made then, I must return again when
The tradewinds of islands are callin’ me home

Memories were made then, I must return again when
The tradewinds of islands are callin’ me home



There Was A Time (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1640)

There was a time on the island
When days were filled with fun
There was a time when lush valleys
Heard our laughter where rivers run
There was a time when paradise
Meant an island love was forever true
And you and I were those island lovers
When our love was then so new

Island love has flown now
Where there were two, there’s only one
Gone is our laughter from the valleys
When one heart decided to run
Gone is the tradewind
With my lover’s heart that time has stole
Oh, where are warm islands
With the sand through which we strolled

I never knew that Aloha
Would mean that you would go away
My dreams have turned blue now
Where soft breezes used to play
Now there’s only emptiness
Since you went away from me
Now there’s no more happiness
Here on our island in the sea

I guess I’ll keep on dreaming
Since my heart still for you yearns
I guess I’ll keep on waiting
Since broken hearts never learn
Happiness can’t reside at home
When your love has left you all alone
So, please come home to your island sand
And let me be your island man, once again



Moana (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1641)

I wandered to places hither
And I wandered to places yon
I wondered as to whether
True love was something never won

I searched for the one who would play the part
Of being a true love to fill my empty heart
On shores far away I one day took a chance
On an island that beckoned with sweet romance

It was in Bora Bora far across the sea
A tropic island garden, kissed there by the breeze
Her name was Moana with a flower in her hair
Such a lovely island maiden, beauty so very rare

She made my days so pleasant with her beguiling smile
Moana’s still with me at present on Bora Bora isle
Praise be the day that I looked into her eyes
And saw there by the bay my bird of paradise



Lahaina Harbor Lights (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1642)

The harbor lights of old Lahaina were glowing
As I stood alone and watched the tide receding
Harbor lights were there to say that you were going
And to let me know how much my heart was bleeding

Aloha Oe meant the harbor lights were there for parting
As the tears I could not hide were only starting
The nights of sweet romance were ended now for you and me
As I took a final glance of harbor lights beside the sea

I knew my heart would ache each lonely night
And my empty arms would reach to hold you tight
Those harbor lights on old Lahaina’s shore
Would never light the love we shared before

Now those harbor lights only show my empty nights
They tell me that you’re somewhere out to sea
And my lonely heart keeps saying other harbor lights
Will steal away my dreams of love for you and me



My Little Island (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1643)

Come along and go with me
To my little island in the sea
We’ll dream a little dream, you see
On my little island in the sea

It’s there in the tradewind air
We’ll share such a sweet embrace
I’ll place a flower in your hair
We’ll say Aloha to a slower pace

And if you want to stay with me
On my little island in the sea
In a little cottage with me you’ll be
On my little island in the sea

Somehow I guess I always knew
That I would find a love that’s true
So I’ll say Aloha E Komo Mai, you see
Welcome to my little island in the sea



Oh, Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1644)

I saw them on the isle
I saw them as they smiled
I saw them kissing too
Oh, please tell me, tropic moon
What did you do with my love

I saw her in his arms
She shared all of her charms
I saw that romance had begun
Oh, please tell me, tropic moon
What have you done with my love

Oh, tropic moon, you promised me
That she would be mine endlessly
Now you’re just an old man in the moon
I’ll be a lonely island man real soon

Now look at them, they fell in love
Underneath that lyin’ tropic moon above
Oh, tropic moon, you’re tearin’ me apart
Oh, tropic moon, you really broke my heart

I saw her in his arms
She shared all of her charms
I saw that romance had begun
Oh, please tell me, tropic moon
What have you done with my love

Oh, please tell me, tropic moon
What have you done with my love



Tiki Torch Man (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1645)

The shoreline was made somewhat brighter
Wherever the little island man would go
The tiki torches showed his hair was whiter
Than when he lit those torches long ago

You can still see his footprints in the sand
The same shore he strolled as a younger island man
He always smiled at everyone that he would see
His smile hid a lonely heart there by the sea

And if there were lovers strolling in the sand
He might not light the torch, just let them be
Remembering days long ago as a younger island man
When he strolled the sand with his own love by the sea

He still remembers when dreams were fresh and new
He once had an island girl who loved him too
The tiki torches he lights reminds him of history
And the island girl still lives in his memory

The shoreline was made somewhat brighter
Wherever the little island man would go
The tiki torches showed his hair was whiter
Than when he lit those torches long ago

He still remembers when dreams were fresh and new
He once had an island girl who loved him too
The tiki torches he lights reminds him of history
And the island girl still lives in his memory
And the island girl still lives in his memory



There On Your Isle (Larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1646)

There on your isle
Would you please dream a dream of me
Though I know before you start
Someone else may own your heart

There on your isle
Do you remember our sweet sighs
Times that we smiled
Before Aloha Oe meant goodbye

Love still has an ember
That can’t be extinguished by rain
Oh, my love, try to remember
And light that flame again

I guess that I’ll
Have to be contented to know
There on your isle
Where soft tradewinds blow
That once in a while
You’ll dream a dream of me
There on your isle



When Will You Ever Know (larry W. Jones 06/20/2003) (song#1647)

Standing on the deck watching islands disappear
I wonder why it is that you’re no longer mine
I’m asking questions that have no answer clear
Years from now I know you’ll still be on my mind

Why did those polynesians sail across the oceans
Why do they call the islands paradise
Why did my heart succumb to these emotions
Why are these raindrops falling from my eyes

Where tradewinds blow
I thought love could be a mountain
But now I know
Why Hawaiian skies are blue
When will I ever know
Why love was not a deeper fountain
When will you ever know
That my love for you was true

Has anybody found an island love in tropic zones
Does anybody know how deep to dive for Davy Jones
Standing on the deck watching islands disappear
I’m asking questions that have no answer clear

Where tradewinds blow
I thought love could be a mountain
But now I know
Why Hawaiian skies are blue
When will I ever know
Why love was not a deeper fountain
When will you ever know
That my love for you was true

When will you ever know
That my love for you was true



Sweetest Rose Of Islands (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1648)

It was paradise the way your eyes looked at me
The look that only could be true love
Those flowers that I gave you by the sea
Are the kind that your love reminds me of

Tuberoses, tuberoses
Sweetest rose of islands in the sea
Tuberoses, tuberoses
Know how sweet your love is to me

My arms now hold the perfect island lover
In dreams untold from the very start
No sweeter rose has been discovered
Than my island rose growing in my heart

Tuberoses, tuberoses
Sweetest rose of islands in the sea
Tuberoses, tuberoses
Know how sweet your love is to me

Tuberoses
Know how sweet your love is to me



Sweet Maori Miss (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1649)

They say Cheryl Moana Marie is just a dream
A sweet Maori miss on an island in the stream
No one seems to know if she’s been seen
Could it be that Cheryl Moana Marie is just a dream

Cheryl Moana Marie
I heard that she was waiting on New Zealand’s shore
Cheryl Moana Marie
Are you still there waiting patiently as before

Cheryl Moana Marie
Will your true love find his way to return
Cheryl Moana Marie
For him will your heart forever yearn

They say Cheryl Moana Marie is just a dream
A sweet Maori miss on an island in the stream
No one seems to know if she’s been seen
But I know that Cheryl Moana Marie isn’t just a dream

Cheryl Moana Marie
I say that some day your waiting will end
Cheryl Moana Marie
It’s only with you, my life forever I’ll spend

Cheryl Moana Marie
I say that some day your waiting will end
Cheryl Moana Marie
It’s only with you, my life forever I’ll spend



Sigh Of Love (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1650)

The tropic breeze flowed through the trees so tenderly
Tall palm trees swayed in the tropic breeze endlessly
That’s when you and I came strolling by the sea
We were lost in that sigh of love tenderly

Gentle waves kissed the shore tenderly
Two hearts gave their vows of love endlessly
Your arms were there for a love affair tenderly
When I kissed your lips it was total eclipse effortlessly

Tall palm trees swayed in the tropic breeze endlessly
That’s when you and I came strolling by the sea

Gentle waves kissed the shore tenderly
Two hearts gave their vows of love endlessly
Your arms were there for a love affair tenderly
When I kissed your lips it was total eclipse effortlessly
We were lost in that sigh of love tenderly
We were lost in that sigh of love tenderly



An Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1651)

An island rose must be grown
Where gentle tradewinds have blown
Or a fragrant lei of love won’t come true
Where gentle tradewinds have blown
I have found my own, my one and only you

Not every song is an island song
So words of island love just don’t belong
Not every dream is of an island in the stream
But I have found a song and a dream that’s true
I have found my own, my one and only you

If a flame of love is to grow
It needs tradewinds where soft breezes blow
To open someone’s heart tenderly
You must unlock it with a golden key
Your love has opened up my heart patiently

If two lips are to be kissed
There must be two more that can’t resist
Otherwise they won’t find love that’s true
Your lips I can’t resist, so I insist
I have found my own, my one and only you

An island rose must be grown
Where gentle tradewinds have blown
Or a fragrant lei of love won’t come true
Where gentle tradewinds have blown
I have found my own, my one and only you
I have found my own, my one and only you



Easy To Be Loving You (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1652)

Easy, it’s easy to be loving you only
It’s easy, easy when love is so true
I knew that you were just what I wanted
And that someday I’d be finding you

Island, you were there on the island
Strolling in the sand just as I do
Easy, where tradewinds blow breezy
It’s easy, easy when love is so true

Easy when knowing that love is gold too
It’s easy for living, and easy for giving
And it’s easy to be loving you

Island, you were there on the island
Strolling in the sand just as I do
Easy, where tradewinds blow breezy
It’s easy, easy when love is so true

Easy when knowing that love is gold too
It’s easy for living, and easy for giving
And it’s easy to be loving you



Dreams And All (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1653)

Islands call without ceasing
Each time I dream of you again
Islands call without ceasing
When I hear your name whispered on the wind

I still dream of the time when we first kissed
I can’t seem to forget, ever since we met
Each night I go out when the sun has set
Dreams and all, islands call without ceasing

Islands call without ceasing
Every dream is just the same
Islands call without ceasing
And I know that I’m the one to blame

I could never find someone else to love
Someone as sweet as you, with a love as true
Each night I go out and my dreams turn blue
Dreams and all, islands call without ceasing

Dreams and all, islands call without ceasing



I’ll Dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1654)

I’ll be dreaming of you in all those tropic places
In among the faces of strangers all day through
Down at the dock, the face in Aloha tower clock, across the bay
The Waikiki shell, the tidal swell, the reef’s foaming spray

I’ll be dreaming of you every island summer’s day
Strolling among the coco palm trees that sway
I’ll always dream of you that way
You’ll be in the morning dew, a new dream fresh and new
And at night, under the moon so bright, I’ll dream of you

I’ll be dreaming of you in all those tropic places
In among the faces of strangers all day through
Down at the dock, the face in Aloha tower clock, across the bay
The Waikiki shell, the tidal swell, the reef’s foaming spray

You’ll be in the morning dew, a new dream fresh and new
And at night, under the moon so bright
I’ll dream of you



Haven’t Got Around To It (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1655)

I’ve told the man in the moon
Even told a falling star or two
That my heart and yours should commune
I just haven’t got around to telling you

I’ve told the little fishes by the reef
Even told a bird of paradise or two
That only you could give my heart relief
I just haven’t got around to telling you

Some people think that I must be in love
Written with indelible ink on my face thereof
So, I might as well confess today
The answer’s yes, they would guess anyway

I wonder if you’ve read between the lines
That you’re the object of my fantasy
If loving me is one of your designs
You just haven’t got around to telling me



In The Air For You (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1656)

Love is in the air where tradewind breezes play
Love is in the air, it makes me feel this way
This must be island love, the way I’m thrilled
Cause my head’s in a whirl over that girl still

Love is in the air and my world is not the same
The tradewinds always seem to whisper your name
This kind of island love is just beyond compare
Dreams are coming true cause love is in the air for you

If this isn’t island love, as such
Then why am I thrilled so much
Why would my head be in a whirl
While my heart is standing still for that girl

Love is in the air and my world is not the same
The tradewinds always seem to whisper your name
This kind of island love is just beyond compare
Dreams are coming true cause love is in the air for you



If I Had You To Love (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1657)

I would hide the world from your isle
I would build a cottage made for two
I could never be sad all the while
Cause I would be so glad if I had you to love

I would leave the mainland far behind
Don’t think I would ever miss it too
Then too, I could leave my friends behind
A life anew I wouldn’t mind, if I had you to love

I would climb the snow capped Mauna Kea
Paddle my canoe over oceans wide
I would do just anything to have ya
Just to know that you’d be by my side

I could be a big kahuna island king
You could be my ali’i island queen
There’s nothing that I couldn’t do
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
If I had you to love



Big Fun By The Bay-O (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1658)

Aloha Joe, me gotta go, where tradewinds blow
Me gotta go where there’s snow on Mauna Kea
Over done, the tropic sun, where tradewinds blow
Burnt by the sun, still have big fun on Mauna Kea

Fish and poi in paradise, make mine a great big jumbo
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my Cheryl Moana Marie-O
Steel guitar, luau under stars where palm trees sway-O
At the setting sun, we’ll have big fun by the bay-O

Call all the bro, Aloha Joe, the island’s buzzin
They all come to see Moana Marie and her cousin
Dress island style, go kalua pig wild, where tradewinds blow
At the setting sun, we’ll have big fun by the bay-O

Fish and poi in paradise, make mine a great big jumbo
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my Cheryl Moana Marie-O
Steel guitar, luau under stars where palm trees sway-O
At the setting sun, we’ll have big fun by the bay-O

Settle down in old Lahaina town, is what I say-O
Gonna eat lots of poi and fish just about every day-O
And love my Cheryl Moana Marie in every way-O
At the setting sun, we’ll have big fun by the bay-O

Fish and poi in paradise, make mine a great big jumbo
Cause tonight I’m gonna see my Cheryl Moana Marie-O
Steel guitar, luau under stars where palm trees sway-O
At the setting sun, we’ll have big fun by the bay-O



Cause I Love You (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1659)

Down by the bay where tradewinds blow
Tiki torches are burning bright
I feel the glow of love that grows
When I see the way you look tonight

Here in my arms your smile is warm
And I love to hold you tight
I can’t help but love your charms
When I see the way you look tonight

As each tender word of Aloha grows
I’m reminded of a work of art
Your laughing eyes and cheeks of rose
Brings paradise to my very heart

May your loveliness never change
Just keep that island charm in sight
I’ll sing you songs of love that I’ve arranged
Cause I love you
When I see the way you look tonight

Cause I love you
When I see the way you look tonight



Only An Island Theme (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1660)

If there could ever be
A painting of my love
It would have to be, it seems
On an island in the stream
For only there, lives someone so fair
Nowhere else could you paint a dream

She lives there by the sea
I know that she’s in love with me
A miracle I’ve seen
Dancing in my dreams
A painting of my love
Could only come from up above

And if you should ever see my love
You would know why she’s the only one I’m dreaming of

On her isle where tradewinds blow
She’s the real live angel that I know
The only one who’s as lovely as the dawn
She’s my true island love
The only one I’m dreaming of
Only an island theme could be a painting of my love



Ocean Of Emotion (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1661)

The harbor lights no longer shine for me
I was fine until you sailed upon the sea
Do you have a notion that you won’t be missed
My mind and heart are in commotion on this

Ocean of emotion
Broken heart and deep devotion
I’ve lost your love that was so divine
Oh, how I wish that you were still mine
I’m adrift and sinking swiftly on this
Ocean of emotion

I don’t know how it was that I lost you
All I know is how much your love has cost me
Where was it that I failed
Why was it that you sailed and left me on this

Ocean of emotion
Broken heart and deep devotion
I’ve lost your love that was so divine
Oh, how I wish that you were still mine
I’m adrift and sinking swiftly on this
Ocean of emotion

I’ve lost your love that was so divine
Oh, how I wish that you were still mine
I’m adrift and sinking swiftly on this
Ocean of emotion



Always Together (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1662)

We strolled the island sand together
Danced to the island bands together
Sang those island tunes underneath a tropic moon
We would be more than friends until the end

Then one day we said Aloha Oe together
We cast love aside as we cried together
You’re gone from me, from our island in the sea
But in my deepest memories
Come the tropic sun or stormy weather
You and I will always be together

We strolled the island sand together
Danced to the island bands together
Sang those island tunes underneath a tropic moon
As love on islands grow, so ours did long ago

You’re gone from me, from our island in the sea
But in my deepest memories
Come the tropic sun or stormy weather
You and I will always be together
You and I will always be together



I Will Give My Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/21/2003) (song#1663)

When I find an island love
She’ll be mine completely
Otherwise I’ll be empty of
A dream of one who needs me

I don’t want the tropic sun
To dry a love before it’s begun
I would cry for a true love
Someone I wouldn’t have to dream of

When I find a true heart
She’ll be mine forever
Otherwise I’ll be empty of
A love worth all endeavor

So, when I find an island love
If you feel the same way that I do
You will be the one I’m dreaming of
And I will give my heart to you

So, when I find an island love
If you feel the same way that I do
You will be the one I’m dreaming of
And I will give my heart to you



All Alone In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2003) (song#1664)

All alone in paradise, ever since Aloha meant goodbye
All alone just as I was at the start
Love is in the air all around
But I’m all alone when the sun goes down
And the only sound is the beating of my lonely heart

I still hear those island guitar bands
But now I stroll alone in island sands
There’s no use in looking at the tropic moon
For there’s no song of love in empty tunes

All alone in paradise, ever since Aloha meant goodbye
All alone just as I was at the start
Love is in the air all around
But I’m all alone when the sun goes down
And the only sound is the beating of my lonely heart

There’s no tradewind to whisper words of love
If I cry again, it’s you I’m thinking of
You’re the only love my heart could ever know
No other love is here where soft breezes blow

All alone in paradise, ever since Aloha meant goodbye
All alone just as I was at the start
Love is in the air all around
But I’m all alone when the sun goes down
And the only sound is the beating of my lonely heart



Softly, Gently (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2003) (song#1665)

Come to me softly, gently
Our love should take the easy way
Let me know that you still love me
As it was from that first day
Come to me softly, gently
We have time to make it last
For if you ever go, go softly, slowly
My poor heart would break if it fell too fast

I’ve been loving you for, oh, so long
Your sweet love is now a part of me
On our isle of love is where we both belong
So, bring your love to me softly, gently

Come to me softly, gently
Like the summer’s gentle rain
Let me know that you still love me
So that true love can be maintained
Come to me softly, gently
Let me love you longer still
For if you ever go, go softly, slowly
My poor heart would break if not fulfilled

I’ve been loving you for, oh, so long
Your sweet love is now a part of me
On our isle of love is where we both belong
So, bring your love to me softly, gently

So, bring your love to me
Softly, gently



Cast Upon The Breeze (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2003) (song#1666)

A thousand leagues of windblown nights
From peaceful bays to arctic seas
A true love for me is out of sight
My dreams I cast upon the breeze

I’m at home alone with destiny
I steer my ship to dreams appease
A true love is out of sight for me
My dreams I cast upon the breeze

A sailor’s life is full of change
From youth to older years
It’s one of strife and interchange
Of laughter but mostly tears

I’ve been to islands in the stream
Strolled the sand under swaying trees
But finding true love was not the theme
My dreams I cast upon the breeze

A sailor’s life is full of change
From youth to older years
It’s one of strife and interchange
Of laughter but mostly tears

I sailed the seas and I played the part
Of a sailor man with an empty heart
True love is something I never seized
My dreams I cast upon the breeze

True love is something I never seized
My dreams I cast upon the breeze



Just A Game (Larry W. Jones 06/22/2003) (song#1667)

Here on my island in the sea
You’ll never know what’s hurtin’ me
Gone just like the tide
Are these tears I keep inside
I wonder how long I can hide
My sorrow and shame
Your love for me was just a game

I’ll look for stormy skies in paradise
You’ll never see the tears flow from my eyes
I still love you so where tradewinds softly blow
And through the years there’ll still be tears
I wonder how long I can hide
My sorrow and shame
Your love for me was just a game

The moon that’s shining from above
Speaks of eternal island love
But for me it brings the flooding tide
And draws the tears so hard to hide
I wonder how long I can hide
My sorrow and shame
Your love for me was just a game

Some day my eyes are gonna dry
But til then I feel like I could die
I still love you so where tradewinds softly blow
And through the years there’ll still be tears
I wonder how long I can hide
My sorrow and shame
Your love for me was just a game

I wonder how long I can hide
My sorrow and shame
Your love for me was just a game



Raquel (Larry W. Jones 06/23/2003) (song#1668)

Esta noche yo sueño en Barcelona
En España donde las brisas soplan
Sobre las flores y la tierra
Y sobre mi rosa espanola, mi amor

Raquel Cabanillas Comino
Está como una canción dulce de Espana
Raquel Cabanillas Comino
Está como una canción del amor de España

Esta noche yo sueño en Barcelona
En España donde las brisas soplan
Sobre las flores y la tierra
Y sobre mi rosa espanola, mi amor

Esta noche yo oigo esas guitarras españolas
Cuándo la luna sale a jugar
El viento habla del amor por la costa
Para Raquel Cabanillas Comino, mi amor

El perfume de flores dulces
Estaba en el aire como rosas
Como Raquel caminaron al lado mío
Bajo la luna amarilla de España

Esta noche yo sueño en Barcelona
En España donde las brisas soplan
Sobre las flores y la tierra
Y sobre mi rosa espanola, mi amor
Y sobre mi rosa espanola, mi amor
Y sobre mi rosa espanola, mi amor



Ma`Anei Mai Käua (Larry W. Jones 06/25/2003) (song#1669)

Ma`anei mai käua, you and I are here together
In my dreams it’s always the same
Regardless of the island weather
That stirs the fragrant lehua in the rain
Ma`anei mai käua you and I are here together
In the place for love

My dreams, to you alone are bringing
The sweetness of the lehua at twilight
As I listen to the little birds there singing
Our song of love through out the night

Ma`anei mai käua, you and I are here together
Our love comes from deep within
Regardless of the island weather
That stirs the fragrant lehua in the rain
In my dreams, we are always together
Our love is whispered in the wind

My dreams, to you alone are bringing
The sweetness of the lehua at twilight
As I listen to the little birds there singing
Our song of love through out the night



Maui Song Of Love (Larry W. Jones 06/25/2003) (song#1670)

Beloved is Maui, island of mountains like towers
Pi’ilani has bays which beauty consumes
On the shores there plays the roselani flowers
Pua blossoms adorned with sweet perfumes

Renownwed is Maui for Kahului
With the inflowing and outgoing tide
Where the harbor beckons to the sea
And to peaceful Maui it will guide

In pride, you will hear the gentle music
At Kepaniwai, the singing stream of ‘Iao
To such a place you are bringing to visit
All who love the beauty of Maui so

Haleakala is the mountain of majesty
The highest mountain of renown
Such a lofty place to view the sea
And Hawaiian islands all around

This ends my mele of Maui
Tell the story of the sweet refrain
Of Maui, majestic island in the sea
Of Maui, an island song of love again



Steamship Line (Larry W. Jones 06/25/2003) (song#1671)

Steamship line, steamship line, hurry up some more
Get to that island in the stream by that sunny shore
I’ve got the blues, wanna see those rainbow hues
Steamship line, make up some time to my Hawaii blue

Way over yonder, islands are calling to me
Way over yonder is my island in the sea
I still can see there, in my memory
My mammy and my pappy
And that island girl who’s still in love with me

Steamship line, steamship line, hurry up some more
Get to that island in the stream by that sunny shore
I’ve got the blues, wanna see those rainbow hues
Steamship line, make up some time to my Hawaii blue

Summer nights, clouds of white and a yellow moon
I’ll be quite all right when I see my island soon
My island there is for luaus by the shore
Steamship line, I implore hurry up a little more

Steamship line, steamship line, hurry up some more
Get to that island in the stream by that sunny shore
I’ve got the blues, wanna see those rainbow hues
Steamship line, make up some time to my Hawaii blue
Steamship line, make up some time to my Hawaii blue



I’ll Still Be Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/25/2003) (song#1672)

My love for you will never end
My mind is made up too
In memories of island times back then
Brings back my love for you
I guess there’s no use to say
How much I’m missing you
So, in my dreams of yesterday
Today I’ll still be blue

I once gave you a lei of flowers
Long ago, that were colored blue
Now my heart is broken every hour
And every day I’m still missing you

My love for you will never end
My mind is made up too
In memories of island times back then
Brings back my love for you
I guess there’s no use to say
How much I’m missing you
So, in my dreams of yesterday
Today I’ll still be blue

I guess there’s no use to say
How much I’m missing you
So, in my dreams of yesterday
Today I’ll still be blue



Still In Love (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1673)

Today I strolled by you on the isle
And my heart stopped beating for awhile
I can’t help from feeling blue
Since I’m still in love with you

Another man was at your side
And there’s one thing I must confide
I can’t help from feeling blue
Since I’m still in love with you

Those dreams of yesterday came back to mind
Of an island love that once was true
Someone is in my heart that I can’t leave behind
I can’t help from feeling blue
Since I’m still in love with you

My heart broke when I saw him kiss you
And felt that same love that I once knew
All I can do is dream about you
I can’t help from feeling blue
Since I’m still in love with you

Today I strolled by you on the isle
And my heart stopped beating for awhile
I can’t help from feeling blue
Since I’m still in love with you



Back Home To My Hawaii (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1674)

The loneliness of mainland cities causes me dismay
Most of them are not very pretty on any day
There’s only one place on earth I want to be
I must return to my island in the sea

My heart is still there, in Hawaii
The love that’s in the air is calling for me
Where ohana love has no bars
And there are luaus under the stars
No other place fulfills what the mainland denies
As my Hawaiian island paradise

My island love is waiting for me there, in Hawaii
Islands in the blue and peaceful sea
When I return to my Hawaii
Back home is where I and my heart will be

My island love is waiting for me there, in Hawaii
Islands in the blue and peaceful sea
When I return to my Hawaii
Back home is where I and my heart will be



On My Islands In The Blue (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1675)

Islands in the blue
Are where my dreams come true
Where gentle breezes blow

Islands in the blue
Are where she said that she would love me too
Where the pace of life is slow

Islands in the blue, Maui chimes, and a moon that
Shines, on me and you when the day is through

That’s the only life I knew
On the islands when Hawaii calls
That my heart answers to them all
And where my dreams come true
On my islands in the blue

Islands in the blue, Maui chimes, and a moon that
Shines, on me and you when the day is through

That’s the only life I knew
On the islands when Hawaii calls
That my heart answers to them all
And where my dreams come true
On my islands
On my islands
On my islands in the blue



My Island Romance (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1676)

My island romance
Was under a big yellow moon in the sky
My island romance
Was that blue lagoon as we went strolling by
It was in the month of June, a lover’s moon
And soft guitar tunes like island lullabyes

My island romance
Was as gentle as the misty island rain
Like a dance
In the midst of a steel guitar refrain

I don’t need to sleep, my heart skips a beat
My island romance is a dream come true
Because my dreams of island romance
Really needs just only you

My island romance
Was as gentle as the misty island rain
Like a dance
In the midst of a steel guitar refrain

I don’t need to sleep, my heart skips a beat
My island romance is a dream come true
Because my dreams of island romance
Really needs just only you
My dreams of island romance
Really needs just only you



Far And Distant Land (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1677)

In a far and distant land
An island girl with polynesian eyes
Placed her gentle hand in mine
And whispered Aloha, I love you so
But that was in a far and distant land
An island girl from paradise
A long time ago

Once down by the bay
Where tall palm trees gently swayed
We counted tropic stars
As we strolled along the sand
But that was in a far and distant land
A dream comes til the dawn
But those tropic stars are gone

How that tradewind breeze caressed her hair
How she smiled when I placed a flower in her hair
She always laughed and filled my heart with cheer
Why did it have to disappear

In a far and distant land
An island girl with polynesian eyes
Placed her gentle hand in mine
I said I would return to her island in the blue
But somehow that far and distant land
That island paradise we knew
Never came again



Here I Linger (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1678)

Here I linger on the sand
Watching the tide take you out of view
A lonely island man on a foreign strand
Knowing that I’ll be dreaming dreams of you

Here I linger on the sand
Watching as your ship sails away
The ring on my finger doesn’t understand
Why you took my dreams today

The sighing of the waves upon the sea
The wailing of the tradewind breeze
The tears that fall now constantly
All plead, my love, oh, please return to me

Here I linger on the sand
Watching the tide take you out of view
A lonely island man on a foreign strand
How long must I linger with my dreams of you



Those Things (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1679)

The way the breeze blows through your hair
The way you stroll down by the sea
The mem’ry of love that’s in the air
Are things no one can take away from me

The way the moonlight on you beams
The way my heart gave you it’s key
The way you fill up all my dreams
Are things no one can take away from me

If we never meet again
To share our laughter and our love
I will always remember when
You did those things that I’ll dream of

The way the breeze blew through your hair
The way you strolled down by the sea
The love that was in the air
Those things no one can take away from me

The way the breeze blew through your hair
The way you strolled down by the sea
The love that was in the air
Those things no one can take away from me



Lonely Island Shore (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1680)

Here I sit by my cottage window
Looking at my lonely island shore
Watching lovers strolling as the breeze blows
Dreaming of the things that are no more

Dreams, when we strolled in the park
Dreams, of the palm tree where we made our mark
Dreams, of the rain when the monsoon poured
Dreaming of the things that are no more

Memories are what my dreams all come to
An empty heart on my lonely island shore
I’m dreaming again of a love that was true
Dreaming of the things that are no more

Dreams, when we strolled in the park
Dreams, of the palm tree where we made our mark
Dreams, of the rain when the monsoon poured
Dreaming of the things that are no more

In my mind I hear steel guitars playing
And the love I feel is written in each score
Yet, I still know what they’re saying
Dreaming of the things that are no more

Dreams, when we strolled in the park
Dreams, of the palm tree where we made our mark
Dreams, of the rain when the monsoon poured
Dreaming of the things that are no more
Looking at my lonely island shore
Looking at my lonely island shore



Ka Ua Tuahine Rain (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1681)

Gentle is the misty rain of Manoa
The Ka ua Tuahini rain
My love is like the freshness there of
The Ka ua Tuahini rain

So lovely is the pua miulana blossom
Grown from the Himalayan tree
Sweetest in the night when I succumb
To my pua miulana blossom by the sea

What my heart’s desire is
To feel the Ka ua Tuahini rain
And what my heart says is
That my sweet love is like
The gentle Ka ua Tuahini rain

All the way from Puna comes the smell
Of the pua miulana blossom strain
Upon my heart it casts it’s spell
Of the gentle Ka ua Tuahini rain

Let be told always the refrain
Of my lovely pua miulana blossom
My sweetheart
In the Ka ua Tuahini rain



Pandanus Tree Grove (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1682)

There’s a place on earth I know about
An island where dreams drift about
Where birds of paradise fly about
And where love is there for you and me

Under a grove of pandanus trees
That grows there by the sea
A place that’s so entrancing
For island love and sweet romancing
Waiting there for you and me

The southern seas has a yellow moon
That shines upon our rendevous
Under a grove of pandanus soon
A lover’s cove for me and you

There, palm trees are gently swaying
And island guitars are softly playing too
And to us they will soon be saying
Sweet words of love so true

Under a grove of pandanus trees
That grows there by the sea
A place that’s so entrancing
For island love and sweet romancing
Waiting there for you and me



A Sunny New Love (Larry W. Jones 06/26/2003) (song#1683)


My name is Sonny, but it ain’t very funny
When I’m feelin’ blue
No one says howdy when my eyes get cloudy
When I’m missin’ you
When the rains fall, I hear islands call
But it don’t matter about the pitter patter
Cause you’re not there at all

My name is Sonny, but there’s no sunshine for me
Like the kind that shines upon your isle
There’s no warm breeze that sways the palm trees
Where you strolled the sand in island style
When island music starts, it just breaks my heart
Those guitars are there without a care today
Cause you have gone away

I loved to hear you laugh, to see your smile
My name is Sonny, but it ain’t a very funny game
It was a sad affair when you left me there on the isle
Somehow Sonny will never be the same

But then, you never know, dreams come and go
So, there may come along one new
Hurry up and bring a new love where soft breezes blow
And bring Sonny a sunny new love too

Hurry up and bring a new love where soft breezes blow
And bring Sonny a sunny new love too



With Islands On My Mind (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1684)

As I stroll along this mainland bay
I dream of islands far away
Misty clouds surround the mountains there
Where a hazy outline fills the air
But dreams are never what they seem
Just what used to be or might have been
My dreams are only clouds blown by the wind

With islands on my mind
And a love that I left behind
I dream there’ll be someway
I can get back there someday
But her love was not for me to choose
She was just another love to lose
As my dreams disappear into the bay

I wish that I could stroll
Where the waves and breakers roll
And just let the breezes blow
All these lovesick blues away
With my love there at my side
Somewhere across that ocean wide
Just like the dreams of yesterday

With islands on my mind
And a love that I left behind
I dream there’ll be someway
I can get back there someday
But her love was not for me to choose
She was just another love to lose
As my dreams disappear into the bay



Your Lyin’ Eyes (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1685)

Your lyin’ eyes just told on you
In paradise you made me blue
You’ll see that I see right through you
Your lyin’ eyes just told on you

When breezes blow through tall palm trees
You’ll see that I’m on bended knees
Bring back the love that I once knew
Your lyin’ eyes just told on you

Your lyin’ eyes will see some day
That my heart was made of clay
You made it beat for you, it’s true
Your lyin’ eyes just told on you

When breezes blow through tall palm trees
You’ll see that I’m on bended knees
Bring back the love that I once knew
Your lyin’ eyes just told on you
Your lyin’ eyes just told on you



Strolling Along Faithfully (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1686)

As long as there are islands in the sea
I know where I must be
I’ll be there for her eternally
Strolling along faithfully

Our love will live as long
As there are islands filled with song
With her I will always be
Strolling along faithfully

At one time I was a lonely man
Til I found a place where tradewinds blow
Now I’ll always be her faithful island man
Simply because I love her so

Our love will live as long
As there are islands filled with song
With her I will always be
Strolling along faithfully

With her I will always be
Strolling along faithfully



I Can’t Save Face (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1687)

I guess I’m acting like a clown
I’m so depressed in old Lahaina town
All the rest have someone new
But I’m only blessed when I have you

I can’t save face from losin’ you
I’ve been disgraced and I’m so blue
You’re the only one, it’s true
Whose love I knew

I saw another girl where tradewinds blow
I said Aloha, she said hello
Then I watched as she walked away
Just like you did to me that day

I can’t save face from losin’ you
I’ve been disgraced and I’m so blue
You’re the only one, it’s true
Whose love I knew

I’ll never find another you
Never mind if I stay blue
Now that you’re gone without a trace
Old Lahaina town is such a lonely place

I can’t save face from losin’ you
I’ve been disgraced and I’m so blue
You’re the only one, it’s true
Whose love I knew

You’re the only one, it’s true
Whose love I knew



Love Rushes In (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1688)

Love rushes in where fools always tread
Like the blush of youth, it’s all they’re thinking of
So, love rushes in where my heart has led
Just call me a fool, a fool in love

Love rushes in where fools always go
But then fools will fall in love
Anywhere that tradewinds blow
You’re the only one that I’ve been dreaming of
You’re the only one who sets my heart aglow

In the sea of love, there’s danger there
But a fool doesn’t see when love is in the air
So, I’ll take a chance as love rushes in
Just call me a fool as our island love begins

So, open up this foolish heart of mine
And let your love rush in
So, open up this foolish heart of mine
And let your love rush in



Garlands (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1689)

For you I will weave a garland of moonbeams
Made for such a lovely island miss
And I will receive from you, sweet dreams
Paid by each and every little kiss

For you I will weave a garland of starlight
To place upon your lovely long hair
And I will for you, guitar island songs write
To embrace your love that’s in the air

The tropic moon is yellow on the sea
The stars are filled with jealousy
But all beauty is not just up heavenly
And your beauty is heaven near to me

When you wear my garland of moonbeams
I will receive from you, sweet dreams
And when you wear my garland of starlight
I will sing you guitar island songs
Songs of my love for you tonight



Golden Is The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1690)


Golden is the moonlight of the big yellow moon
Emboldened by this lovely tropic night of June
The moonlight I see is straight from paradise
Reflected in the magic of your polynesian eyes

Some celestial powers are hard to resist
In such a moonlit hour of your moonlight kiss
Our love began to flower in front of my eyes
From the first hour I found you here in paradise

Finding you has engendered
Words of love and surrender
For my heart there’s no defender
To the power of your love

Golden is the moonlight of the big yellow moon
Emboldened by this lovely tropic night of June
The moonlight I see is straight from paradise
Reflected in the magic of your polynesian eyes

Some celestial powers are hard to resist
In such a moonlit hour of your moonlight kiss
Our love began to flower in front of my eyes
From the first hour I found you here in paradise



My Moana Marie (Larry W. Jones 06/27/2003) (song#1691)

My Moana Marie
You have answered every prayer
My Moana Marie
You are the love that’s in the air

You are to me
The voice of love that echoes in the night
For when you are near me
Love songs of Hawaiian guachos you incite

My Moana Marie
You and I must never part
My Moana Marie
You are forever in my heart

This love I have for you
Will always see us through
My Moana Marie
Let me share my love with you

You are to me
The voice of love that echoes in the night
For when you are near me
Love songs of Hawaiian guachos you incite

My Moana Marie
You and I must never part
My Moana Marie
You are forever in my heart



This Island Life (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1692)

When the tropic sun goes down
Rainbows are always hangin’ round
This island life is such a good life
It’s the only life for me

Island folks just like me
Don’t have to dream of what could be
This island life is such a good life
It’s the only life for me

Here, the only blues that’s playin’
Is in these skies of paradise
This is what Hawaiian eyes are sayin’
This island life, it sure is nice

Life in this peaceful island scene
Is where every dream comes true
This island life sure is my life
It should be your life too

Life in this peaceful island scene
Is where every dream comes true
This island life sure is my life
It should be your life too



Wild Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1693)


She was a wild island rose
Where the tropic tradewind blows
My love for her was oh, so true
But island life for her would never do
The mainland life is what she chose

Last week I saw my wild island rose
Back on the isle where tradewinds blow
She looked sad in her fancy clothes
The mainland had taken her apart
She’s back now with her broken heart
Doesn’t know if she can start over
She’s just a token of a wild island rose

She was a wild island rose
Where the tropic tradewind blows
My love for her was oh, so true
But island life for her would never do
The mainland life is what she chose

Last week I saw my wild island rose
Back on the isle where tradewinds blow
She looked sad in her fancy clothes
The mainland had taken her apart
She’s back now with her broken heart
Doesn’t know if she can start over
She’s just a token of a wild island rose

She’s just a token of a wild island rose



Island Nights (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1694)

It was I who was lost and lonely
At times I thought that this life was only
A tragedy on a stage, a worn out page
Until I found your island and your love

Island nights with island stars
Island sounds from my guitar
Drifting on the gentle breeze
That flows through the coco trees

Island thoughts and island dreams
Strolling slowly by the valley streams
A cottage window looking out to sea
Where winds blow love to you and me

This isle of dreams is where I want to be
As long as I have your love with me
As long as there are dreams to remember
As long as life itself has an ember
As long as I have your island love



Reason For My Broken Heart (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1695)


Listen to the reason why my heart’s in pain
I didn’t know until she left, and then
I knew that I had played her foolish game
And now I find myself alone again

My island girl has gone elsewhere to do her hula sway
She says she’s looking for a brand new start
I saw her stroll with someone new down by the bay
And that’s the reason for my broken heart

The pain in my heart is in the tropic air
Where there used to be love, now she don’t care
The island is supposed to be where dreams come true
But now it seems that it’s where broken hearts are too

Listen to the reason why my heart’s in pain
I didn’t know until she left, and then
I knew that I had played her foolish game
And now I find myself alone again

My island girl has gone elsewhere to do her hula sway
She says she’s looking for a brand new start
I saw her stroll with someone new down by the bay
And that’s the reason for my broken heart

I saw her stroll with someone new down by the bay
And that’s the reason for my broken heart



I’ll Say It Again (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1696)

Aloha means that I love you
It comes like the tide
Fills my heart with love inside
I’ll say it again, Aloha, I love you

I’ve said it so many times today
Aloha has so much love to convey
Aloha, I love you, so, let love begin
I’ll say it again, Aloha, I love you

Sometimes my mind’s in a haze
When I try to think of a phrase or two
Something to tell you how much you mean
Just to let you know in between
That you’re a dream from the blue

Pardon me if I’ve told you before
I just want you to know for sure
That I love you with a love so true
I’ll say it again, Aloha, I love you

Pardon me if I’ve told you before
I just want you to know for sure
That I love you with a love so true
I’ll say it again, Aloha, I love you



Twilight By The Bay (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1697)

It is now twilight by the bay
I sit where gentle breezes play
Lovers are strolling places by the sea
But there’s no place to go for me
I hide the tears that fill my eyes

Money did not buy happiness
That’s what I need now nonetheless
There’s only sorrow in paradise
My dreams were filled with only lies
I hide the tears that fill my eyes

It is now twilight by the bay
I sit where gentle breezes play
Lovers are strolling places by the sea
But there’s no place to go for me
I hide the tears that fill my eyes

Doing things I never thought I’d do
Wishing that our love was still brand new
There’s only sorrow in paradise
My dreams were filled with only lies
I hide the tears that fill my eyes
I hide the tears that fill my eyes



Island Rose Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1698)

Tradewinds blew o’er the peaceful sea
He would take with him on the summer breeze
An island rose, an island rose of mine

He would leave behind his heart for me to wear
He said it would remind me of
An island rose, an island rose of mine

He would return, he would return
He would come back with an island rose for me

He never did return, never did return
With love on the tradewind air
And so my heart has died
Died dreaming of a flower for my hair
An island rose, a rambling rose of mine

He would return, he would return
He would come back with an island rose for me

He would come back with an island rose for me



Wiki Wiki Wicked Hula (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1699)

If you wanna do the wiki wiki wicked hula
The way they do in Honolu-la
You don’t need a lotta mulla
To dance the wiki wiki wicked hula

First you sway and move your hips
Like the rocking of the ships
You don’t need many tips
To dance the wiki wiki wicked hula

Now, around the sand you have to go
To get your man where breezes blow
Then you just sway like hula trees
If your island man you wanna please

Now you can do the wiki wiki wicked hula
The way they do in Honolu-la
Now from this day on, you’ll-a
Be dancin’ the wiki wiki wicked hula

Now from this day on, you’ll-a
Be dancin’ the wiki wiki wicked hula



Seventeen Hundred (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1700)

Seventeen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Seventeen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Seventeen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Seventeen hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Seventeen hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Seventeen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Seventeen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Seventeen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Seventeen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun



I Beg Your Return (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1701)

Sweetheart, I beg your return
To warm this isle
My sweetheart, for you I have yearned
For oh, so long a while

A single moon, why must there be two
One for me, one there for you
Say that soon I can say Aloha
On our island shore

The stars above all shine for you
To guide you home
My sweetheart, please follow their chart
And never more roam

And sweetheart, when you return
My love will be here, evermore

A single moon, why must there be two
One for me, one there for you
Say that soon I can say Aloha
On our island shore

The stars above all shine for you
To guide you home
My sweetheart, please follow their chart
And never more roam

And sweetheart, when you return
My love will be here, evermore



My Heart Has A Door (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1702)


And my heart has a door
That’s still open for you
There’s one thing I must confess
Sometimes I cry from loneliness
And my heart has a door
That’s still open for you

You were as warm to me
As tradewinds in the trees
As a gentle tropic breeze
And my heart has a door
That’s still open for you

Even though sometimes I cried
I know it’s better that tears not hide
When will I see you coming onthe tide
Again to stand with me by my side

You were as warm to me
As tradewinds in the trees
As a gentle tropic breeze
And my heart has a door
That’s still open for you

And my heart has a door
That’s still open for you



Aloma, My Aloma (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1703)

Aloma is a flower
A wild flower in the tropic breeze
Aloma, my Aloma
My wild flower of the southern seas

Aloma is so lovely
And no other love she knew
Aloma, my Aloma
Oh, how I’m missing you

Our love was just waking, now my heart is aching
For Aloma, my Aloma
My wild flower of the southern seas

Aloma is a flower
A wild flower where palm trees sway
Aloma, my Aloma
Oh, why did I have to go away

Our love was just waking, now my heart is aching
For Aloma, my Aloma
My wild flower of the southern seas

Aloma is so lovely
And no other love she knew
Aloma, my Aloma
Oh, how I’m missing you



Ku’u Lei Nani Aloha (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1704)

Ku`u lei nani aloha, my beautiful lei of love
Where palm trees sway, there’s beauty from above
Ku`u lei nani aloha
You are the flower that I’m dreaming of

A red carnation has been warmed by the sun
A creation that is second to none
Your location on the sunny isle thereof, is for
Ku`u lei nani aloha, my beautiful lei of love

My sweetheart on the island
Wears a red carnation lei for me
E Ku’u nani Aloha, my beautiful sweetheart
Wears my beautiful lei of love by the sea

Ku`u lei nani aloha, my beautiful lei of love
The sun has made you sweet and precious there
Ku`u lei nani aloha
So lovely with a red carnation in your hair

My sweetheart on the island
Wears a red carnation lei for me
E Ku’u nani Aloha, my beautiful sweetheart
Wears my beautiful lei of love by the sea
Ku`u lei nani aloha, my beautiful lei of love



Every Island (Larry W. Jones 06/28/2003) (song#1705)

Every island has seen a love sometime
Every island is made for love somehow
And the way you just kissed me by the shore
My island is yours

Every island has a special some place
A grove of palm trees gently swaying
And my heart to you is now saying
Your love I embrace

I give to you this lei of flowers
That I’ve arranged to match your charms
And I’ll do all that’s in my power
To give you love and keep you in my arms

Every island has seen a love sometime
And I know dreams in Hawaii do come true
Love is what the islands are creating
Island love for me and you

Love is what the islands are creating
Island love for me and you



In The Island Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1706)

In the island moonlight
By the tiki torch light
I love to hold you real tight
When I’m with you

On a far away isle
Anything is worthwhile
If I can see your smile
And be by you

Up on Mauna Kea
Or in Manoa valley
Anywhere the breeze blows
Anywhere that you go
I’ll be there

In the island moonlight
By the tiki torch light
I love to hold you real tight
When I’m with you

(spoken)
I could love you under the tropic moon
And place a flower from your lei in your hair
I would be a king in just a cottage by the sea
As long as you were there
I might never be rich, but I’ll never be poor
If you would only be my bride
My love for you would always be true and pure
And as steady as the tide

Up on Mauna Kea
Or in Manoa valley
Anywhere the breeze blows
Anywhere that you go
I’ll be there

In the island moonlight
By the tiki torch light
I love to hold you real tight
When I’m with you



Alphabet Island Love (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1707)

“I” is for the island where I found you
“S” is for a very special one
“L” is the love that you give me too
“A” is for always being fun
“N” is for all the tropic nights I held you
“D” is this delightful dream that’s coming true

Island love is all that I can give you
It’s the love I hope you live for too
When love is true, then time can’t shake it
When a heart is true, then love will never break it
So, take my heart and my whole life too
Island love was made for me and you

“L” is the love you gave me too
“O” is for the only one for whom I sing
“V” is for the very special things you do
“E” is everything that island love can bring

Island love is all that I can give you
It’s the love I hope you live for too
When love is true, then time can’t shake it
When a heart is true, then love will never break it
So, take my heart and my whole life too
Island love was made for me and you



Favorite Island Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1708)

The sweetest of berries grow at Hanalei bay
I’ll weave the mokihana berries into a sweet lei
For all the tomorrows that pass with the time
Kauai will be the favorite island of mine

The mokihana is as sweet as the morning glory
That grows all year in Kauai’s eternal spring
It’s the lei of love in the ancient talk story
That makes lovers laugh with joy as they sing

The sweetest of berries grow at Hanalei bay
I’ll weave the mokihana berries into a sweet lei
For all the tomorrows that pass with the time
Kauai will be the favorite island of mine

I’ve been a sailor and I’ve been a rover
But now it’s only you for whom I sing
I’ll feast at your luau until the music’s over
Your sweet love has played on my heart strings

The sweetest of berries grow at Hanalei bay
I’ll weave the mokihana berries into a sweet lei
For all the tomorrows that pass with the time
Kauai will be the favorite island of mine

For all the tomorrows that pass with the time
Kauai will be the favorite island of mine



Palm Trees Wave For Me (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1709)

Palm trees wave for me, palm trees wave for me
Wave your fronds so green
On your islands in the stream of the sea
Please see my misery, palm trees, wave for me

My island love has gone, left me all alone
Gone and broken my poor heart that’s not of stone
Brave though I may be, palm trees, wave for me

Love is whispered on the wind
But my poor heart will never mend
Hear my heart now breaking, hear my cries
Tell the man in the moon, don’t arise too soon
So none will see how I am aching here in paradise

Palm trees wave for me, wave with sympathy
Cast your fronds now to the wind and cover me
When the islands call
Wave, oh palm trees, wave for me

Palm trees wave for me, wave with sympathy
Cast your fronds now to the wind and cover me
When the islands call
Wave, oh palm trees, wave for me



Romancing Under The Moon (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1710)

We’re romancing under the moon tonight
The stars above are up there shining bright
You look so lovely dressed in island white
Let me caress you tonight, my island love

We’re romancing under the moon tonight
The stars above are up there shining bright
Moonbeams that dance upon the sea invite
The Aloha that I see in your eyes of love

We’re romancing under the moon, it’s true
Making make believe come true anew
And I believe you feel the same way I do
Romancing under the moon tonight

We’re romancing under the moon, it’s true
Making make believe come true anew
And I believe you feel the same way I do
Romancing under the moon tonight



Soulful Sailor (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1711)

Some year an old forgotten tear
Will reappear and call my name
And then my dreams will be gone
This island will sing a soulful song
But until then, I’ll stay on the isle
And watch the beauty of your smile

Eventually an old man of the sea
Will come to call again on me
And you will see why a sailor man
Has to plant his feet in other sand
But until then, here in paradise
My dreams will be reflected in your eyes

Some year, tradewinds that blow
Will whisper in my ear it’s time to go
Then I’ll sail away with you behind
But you will be forever on my mind
But until then, I’m your island man
Just remember that I’m a sailor man

But until then, I’m your island man
Just remember that I’m a sailor man



Dreams Are Gone (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1712)

I remember when our love was new
Do you remember the same way I do
By the sea, under a tropic sun
Dreams down by the bay, but the dreams are gone

We strolled together hand in hand
In the tradewind breeze in island sand
By the sea, under a tropic sun
Dreams down by the bay, but the dreams are gone

You and I were so happy then
We knew we could handle any weather
I can’t remember exactly when
Our dreams drifted away forever

Maybe some day an island breeze will come again
To whisper those words of love and song
When our hearts were young and knew no pain
Like those dreams down by the bay that now are gone

You and I were so happy then
We knew we could handle any weather
I can’t remember exactly when
Our dreams drifted away forever

Maybe some day an island breeze will come again
To whisper those words of love and song
When our hearts were young and knew no pain
Like those dreams down by the bay that now are gone

But now the dreams are gone
But now the dreams are gone
But now the dreams are gone



Timeless Rhythm, Endless Love (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1713)

The warmth of the island sunshine feels good against my skin
Melting any troubles away
I walk along the water line leaving footprints where I’ve been
Engraving shadows by the peaceful bay

So deep is the blue ocean, deep and powerful
Timeless rhythm, endless love
In storms of deep emotion, on my heart you ever pull
Timeless, endless dreams of love

The warmth of your loving smile comforts and embraces me
Melting any fears away
Walking through my mind awhile, thoughts making memories
To last forever and a day

So deep blue are your dancing eyes, peering deep into my soul
Timeless rhythm, endless love
In storms or peaceful paradise, my heart you control
Timeless rhythm, endless love

Timeless rhythm, endless love
Timeless rhythm, endless love



A Diamond Is Forever (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1714)

A diamond is forever, forever bringing smiles
Beauty deep within a gem
Diamond Head is forever, watching over peaceful isles
Forever guarding them

The body is there for to embrace, forever keep from harm
To keep forever warm
Bodies of water are set in place, to keep Hawaii warm
Waves of love there conform

The heart is strong and warm, for sharing life and love
To all who love in return
The heart of the earth gave life and form, to islands thereof
For Hawaii it did burn

The Garden of Eden was a paradise, though worlds and time away
So the Scriptures say
Hawaiian islands are a paradise, where tall palm trees still sway
Forever and a day

Forever is just eternity, like the endless rolling seas
Where sunsets blaze
God has given you and me, an eternal island breeze
For Hawaii give Him praise



My Island Summer Place (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1715)

An island is not just some summer place
To keep you safe from the storm
An island is there so that all can embrace
The love that will keep you warm
And from my island, a summer place
My arms reach out to you
With a love that no one can replace
For my love is ever true

Here there are skies with magic might
To warm the tropic night
And in your eyes I see paradise
Under stars shining bright

An island is not just some summer place
Where love is in the air
An island is there so that all can embrace
True love when two people share
And from my island, a summer place
All my dreams I give to you
With a love that no one can replace
Please make my dreams come true

And from my island, a summer place
All my dreams I give to you
With a love that no one can replace
Please make my dreams come true



Ocean Waves (Larry W. Jones 06/29/2003) (song#1716)

Moana Marie, ocean waves are now making
Moana Marie, on the reef they are breaking
Just as my heart you are taking
From me, from me
And tears are now falling
As I recall
The moon in all it’s glory
That soon revealed it’s story
When you, when you
Kissed your new lover
And I that night discovered
That my heart, my heart
Would never recover

Moana Marie, ocean waves are now making
Moana Marie, on the reef my heart is breaking
Just as your love you are taking
From me, from me
And tears are now falling
As I recall
The moon in all it’s glory
That soon revealed it’s story
When you, when you
Kissed your new lover
And I that night discovered
That my heart, my heart
Would never recover
Moana Marie
Moana Marie



He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2003) (song#1717)

He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha, I confess my love
It is for you that my heart does long
He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha
The love I confess is oh, so strong

Remembrances of love come back to me
Like a bubbling, rising spring
Romances thereof with you by the sea
Are comprising songs of love to sing

He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha, I confess my love
For my darling lehua blossom rare
Watered by the springs my heart is speaking of
E Ku’u ipo, my darling beyond compare

You are the one to whom I give my heart
My fragrant one, my treasure within
He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha, I confess my love
We have come to where love begins

Ha`ina mai ka puana lâ
Tell the refrain of my confession
He Ka ha`ina Ku`u Aloha
I confess my love for you
Like a bubbling, rising spring



Sweetheart Palm Tree (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2003) (song#1718)

They say there’s a tree on the island
Where soft breezes blow
They say there’s a tree on the island
Where new sweethearts go

They say there’s a tree on the island
Where love blows in the wind
They say there’s a tree on the island
Where new love begins

Come and stroll with me
To the sweetheart palm tree
Let me engrave a sign
And carve your name next to mine

They say it’s the place where new love starts
For hearts that are true
They say that it’s there for new sweethearts
And sweetheart, I love you

Come and stroll with me
To the sweetheart palm tree
Let me engrave a sign
And carve your name next to mine

They say the first kiss is like a flower
A sweet lehua blossom bower
They say a true love by the isle shore
Will last for evermore

Come and stroll with me
To the sweetheart palm tree
Let me engrave a sign
And carve your name next to mine
For evermore



Surrender (Larry W. Jones 06/30/2003) (song#1719)

Try to remember the island of splendor
Where life was slow and easy
Try to remember the island of splendor
Where tradewinds blow so breezy
Try to remember the island of splendor
When dreams flowed oh, so freely
Try to remember, island love is an ember
That begs you surrender

Try to remember that islands engender
A lover and not a contender
Try to remember that islands engender
Dreams from a true love sender
Try to remember that islands engender
A true heart, not a pretender
Try to remember, island love is an ember
That begs you surrender

Come to me tender, young love to remember
When stars were shining brightly
Come to me tender, young love to remember
When I held you oh, so tightly
Come to me tender, young love to remember
When we shared our love nightly
Come to me tender, island love is an ember
That begs you surrender
Surrender
Surrender



Somewhere Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 07/04/2003) (song#1720)

Somewhere, sweetheart
Islands are in the stream
Somewhere, sweetheart
There is no snow or cold
There we will find
Love and sweet songs to sing
There we will find
Warm sunsets of red and gold

Somewhere, sweetheart
Islands are in the stream
Somewhere, sweetheart
There is beauty to behold
There we will find
That love isn’t just a dream
There we will find
An island paradise to unfold

Some fine day, you and I will be on that lovely shore
Some fine day, when all of our dreams come true

You will wear a lei
Just like the one so long ago
Warmed by the sun
Of islands where tradewinds blow
Until that day, sweetheart
Dream of me once again
Until that day, sweetheart
For you only my love remains

Some fine day, you and I will be on that lovely shore
Some fine day, when all of our dreams come true

You will wear a lei
Just like the one so long ago
Warmed by the sun
Of islands where tradewinds blow
Until that day, sweetheart
Dream of me once again
Until that day, sweetheart
For you only my love remains



Midnight Polynesian Eyes (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1721)

Midnight polynesian eyes
Stars are shining in your polynesian eyes
Please, please don’t be shy
My Aloha means hello and not goodbye

The moon has returned
With beams of love as true as gold
Here by the sea
I see in your polynesian eyes, your love for me

Midnight polynesian eyes deeply shine with island love
And your eyes reflect the only one I’m dreaming of

Bright polynesian eyes
Prettiest eyes in all of paradise
Midnight polynesian eyes
My love for you I can’t deny

The moon has returned
With beams of love as true as gold
Here by the sea
I see in your polynesian eyes, your love for me

Midnight polynesian eyes deeply shine with island love
And your eyes reflect the only one I’m dreaming of

The moon has returned
With beams of love as true as gold
Here by the sea
I see in your polynesian eyes, your love for me



Diamond Head Daydream (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1722)

I was sunning on the warm sandy beach
Looking up at Diamond Head, so far to reach
Daydreaming of the past that disappeared so fast
Staring at the rugged cliff and wondering if

Diamond Head, do you hold secrets yet untold
What visions of the past do you still hold
Did you know those ancient voyagers’ hopes and fears
And have you seen all the island lovers through the years

Diamond Head, do you remember kings who feasted here
And long canoes that toward your promontory steered
Hula dancers talking stories with their arms over there
And songs of island love that filled the very air

Diamond Head, do you remember swift canoes on the sea
And the smell of island flowers oh, so sweet
The moon and stars that through the heaven flies
Diamond Head, you’re guarding the shores of paradise

Well, Diamond Head, I’ll let you daydream too
Here where island breezes make the palm trees sway
If my wish comes true, I’ll be here with my love so true
And look up at Diamond Head and daydream every day



The Soft Tradewind (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1723)

The soft tradewind
Came flowing in from somewhere out at sea
The soft tradewind
Flowed through your hair just as it pleased

As the summer rolled along
We fell in love and made our plans
And we strolled along
As all new lovers do in island sands

Two hearts full of love within, in the soft tradewind

Like tiki lights
The summer nights were soft and warm
New love invites
The calm before the storm

Our love was new
And we both knew it would never end
Then disguised as a friend
Why, I still can’t comprehend
It whispered in your ear
Things I didn’t want to hear
I lost our love and you
To the soft tradewind

One heart full of love within, in the soft tradewind

The stormy winds
Are now the ones that come to chill my bones
The love within
My heart is all that helps me carry on

I still hear your sighs
Like sweet lullabyes
On the soft tradewind
On the soft tradewind



Island Days Now Past (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1724)

Once in island days now past, when I was young
Island love was sweet, as when spring had sprung
I laughed at life with no set aim
Like the tradewind breezes met a tiki flame

The plans I planned, the dreams I dreamed
There on island sand were of the grandest schemes
The isle was my delight with no thought of future days
Now I see the light that the years have taught about my ways

Once in days now past, when I was young
Those lovely Maui chimes were there just to be rung
Life on island time was fun beyond compare
No strife was mine when love was in the air

The pace of island life was slow, but youth was fast
I chased the rainbow’s gold right to the very last
Now when I hear the tradewinds of the islands call
I can only shed a tear within the dreams that now are small

Once in days now past, the moon was gold
In every crazy way, I broke the island mold
I was in a cage with the mainland far beyond
Like a play upon a stage where only fools respond

Island love was just a game, something to be tried
If a love was true, it drifted out of sight upon the tide
The ohana love from family and friends
Now just haunts my memory, begging for amends

I still hear those island songs
Which so long ago were sung
Island love was sweet, as when spring had sprung
Now there’s only memories that come
Of a time that came and went so fast
Once in island days now past, when I was young



Music On The Breeze (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1725)

It was on an April day
When we strolled down by the bay
Where the tradewinds from the seas
Played island music on the breeze

But you laughed when I tried
To ask if you would be my bride
You didn’t seem to understand
That I could be your island man

So, no wedding vows were ever made
And my dreams began to fade
Somehow I felt betrayed
When the tradewinds from the seas
Played island music on the breeze

Now, just like the ocean breaks
On the reef where foam it makes
My broken heart sits here at home
While my love the world does roam

But I still remember an April day
When we strolled down by the bay
Where the tradewinds from the seas
Played island music on the breeze



My Lovely Island Belle (Larry W. Jones 07/05/2003) (song#1726)

I met an island girl the other day
She was a lady I could tell
For just a moment I couldn’t think of what to say
To such a lovely island belle

She had eyes so bright, a smile so right
She looked so precious standing by the shore
She was a gem shining in a tropic night
And I wanted to know her even more

This island girl now owns my very heart
And from her side I didn’t want to part
There on the island where the breezes blew
I found a dream that finally came true

The stars were shining up above
The moon was beaming forth its love
She was the island girl for me
Love was being whispered on the breeze

Now she’s my bundle of island joy
She even makes my special fish and poi
She’s my lovely island belle
My love for her is like an ocean swell
She’s my island girl
My lovely island belle



Hale’iwa Home (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1727)

The sun shines brightly on the north shore of Oahu
On the little town that I call home
Hale’iwa, where the north shore waves break with foam
Hale’iwa, I’m coming home to Oahu and you

The days all start with the morning dew
Then the skies turn to a brilliant blue
Hale’iwa, where the tall palm trees sway
Hale’iwa, where dreams are made at Waialua Bay

Home is where the heart is
And although my feet have roamed
My heart within me says
Hale’iwa is my Oahu home

I know a sweet wahini that I left waiting there
She’s an island beauty with a flower in her hair
When I see her again on that Hale’iwa shore
I’ll just explain that I’ll roam never more

Home is where the heart is
And although my feet have roamed
My heart within me says
Hale’iwa is my Oahu home

When I see her again on that Hale’iwa shore
I’ll just explain that I’ll roam never more



Hawaiian Family Tradition (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1728)

Hawaii is filled with island tradition
Some don’t even need permission
Like a wedding on the beach with vows from each
It’s just island love submission
A Hawaiian family tradition

They played the Hawaiian wedding song
When my aunt and uncle strolled along
While the sun was setting on their brows
They both recited their wedding vows

My sister got engaged in the setting sun
Another Hawaiian tradition had begun
He was Hawaii’s favorite island son
A Hawaiian family tradition

There must be magic in the tropic moon
My parents celebrated another island honeymoon
And that’s where my love and I will be real soon
A Hawaiian family tradition

Now here we are in paradise
In her wedding gown she sure is nice
And, yes, I did ask her permission
A Hawaiian family tradition

This is where dreams still do come true
So, take this advice, I give to you
If island love is your ambition
You don’t need my permission
It’s a Hawaiian family tradition



Moana In The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1729)

No one is quite as lovely
As Moana in the moonlight
When down by the peaceful bay
I see her strolling there
No one is quite as lovely
As Moana in the moonlight
Gentle as the breeze
That blows the flower in her hair

She looks like a dream strolling by the sea
Moana is supreme when it comes to island charms
When I arrive, I’m so alive when she’s beside me
I know our love will thrive when she’s in my arms

No one is quite as lovely
As Moana in the moonlight
Making wishes with all the falling stars
No one is quite as lovely
As Moana in the moonlight
Her love is as sweet as island steel guitars

No one is quite as lovely
As Moana in the moonlight
Kissed by beams of love
That shines from her dark hair
And as we stroll along
I’m thankful for the night
No one is quite as lovely
Never quite as lovely
As Moana
My Moana in the moonlight



Island Bird (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1730)

Island bird, high up in pandanus tree
Island bird, isn’t it a lonely deep blue sea
Did your lady fair leave you sitting there
And fly away

Here’s something more to ad, doesn’t make me glad
I thought it was true love I had
Before she went away

She was such a pretty island girl
We strolled together down by the bay
But, just like the other pretty island girls
She broke my heart, then she flew away

Island bird, high up in pandanus tree
Island bird, isn’t it a lonely deep blue sea
Did your lady fair leave you sitting there
And fly away

You better find a way to find her pretty soon
The night will come, and with it, the moon
And maybe here by the lonely deep blue sea
Love will find a way

If I could be an island bird
I would fly away and find her too
But since I’m not an island bird
I’m sitting here alone and feeling blue

If I could be an island bird
If I could be an island bird
If I could be an island bird
I would fly away and find her too



Purple Velvet Skies (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1731)

As the purple velvet skies descend to cover paradise
And the moon ascends into the sky
From the veil of my dreams
You come back to me, it seems
Whispering my name as you stroll by

It is then, when stars are bright
Your love, once again is my delight

Though you’re far away
I know some day in paradise
As long as I can dream
You’ll come back to me, it seems
Under purple velvet skies

It is then, when stars are bright
Your love, once again is my delight

Though you’re far away
I know some day in paradise
As long as I can dream
You’ll come back to me, it seems
Under purple velvet skies

Under purple velvet skies



On A Day Such As This (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1732)

On a day such as this
When island skies of blue and oceans call
This is when I reminisce
About the way things were as I recall

Then I hear that familiar island music
Playing on the tropic breeze
And I recall the words of every topic
As we strolled beneath palm trees

On a day such as this
I remember kisses sweet as wine
And singing songs that I now miss
When we loved and laughed on island time

On a day such as this
I wonder if you wonder too
What became of me, what became of you
Are you still singing songs of bliss
On the isle with someone new

I picture you strolling where tall palm trees exists
Recalling the island love we knew on a day such as this

On a day such as this
I remember kisses sweet as wine
And singing songs that I now miss
When we loved and laughed on island time

On a day such as this
I wonder if you wonder too
What became of me, what became of you
Are you still singing songs of bliss
On the isle with someone new



A Sailor’s Star (Larry W. Jones 07/06/2003) (song#1733)

I was born to follow a sailor’s star
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
Sails are made for unfurlin’, for to sail the brine
I’ve never seen an ocean that stirred more emotion
Than the one on a new horizon line
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
A sailor, sailor’s star

The mainland can make you a captive
But that’s not for a sailor guy
The oceans will make you adaptive
But still you might one day die
The flat lands are made for comin’ from
And islands are worth goin’ to
A sailor must follow a sailor’s star
To see if his dreams come true

I was born to follow a sailor’s star
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
Do you know where Hawaii is
Where Aloha means hello
Old Lahaina town is a sailor’s paradise
Where sailors like me can spend their dough
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
A sailor, sailor’s star

I was born to follow a sailor’s star
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
When I get to Hawaii, I’ll stroll under palm trees
Then I’ll pull anchor and sail again
You’ll find me somewhere in a tropic breeze
Sailing to islands still afar
I was born to follow a sailor’s star
A sailor, sailor’s star



Hang A Ginger Lei (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1734)

I’m sailin’ to my island home this time
Spent enough years wasted in the brine
I wonder if she got my message from the sea
Suggesting what to do if she still loves me
This was my plea

Hang a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahahamoku
That statue on Kuhio beach
Where I fell in love with you
And if I don’t see a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahanamoku
I’ll reboard the ship
Let the shore lines slip
And sail back out to sea
If I don’t see a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahanamoku

Oh, captain, send a man ashore for me
Does the tradewind air have a song of love, you see
My heart is so afraid, afraid of what might be
One ginger lei would mean she still loves me
This was my plea

Hang a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahahamoku
That statue on Kuhio beach
Where I fell in love with you
And if I don’t see a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahanamoku
I’ll reboard the ship
Let the shore lines slip
And sail back out to sea
If I don’t see a ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahanamoku

Well, the whole ship’s crew was drinkin’
I don’t know what I was thinkin’
I’ve been sailin’ much too long
My island baby’s up and gone
So, I know just what to do
I’ll reboard the ship
Let the shore lines slip
And sail back out to sea
Cause I don’t see a single ginger lei
Around the neck of Duke Kahanamoku



Almost Like A Dream (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1735)

Once in a while, a love comes to the isle
Like the day when I met you, it seemed
It was almost like a dream
I let you into my heart, we were a team
Love like ours could never part
It was almost like a dream

That year that I remember
Came and went so very fast
Then your love died to an ember
And the dream didn’t last

Now my empty arms
Cry for your many charms
It was almost like a dream
But it wasn’t what it seemed

I let you into my heart, we were a team
Love like ours could never part
It was almost like a dream

Now my empty arms
Cry for your many charms
It was almost like a dream
But it wasn’t what it seemed

No, it wasn’t what it seemed



Loneliest Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1736)

Island rose, do you still wear that faded flower lei
Could it be an island rose that wasn’t meant to be
And did you meet him by the bay where you heard him say
He would take you to his island in the sea

She’s a solitary soul and the years have taken toll
And her friends know that her mind isn’t whole
She strolls the sidewalk as if it’s made of sand
Waiting for a dark tanned island man

Dressed in island clothes, they call her island rose
The loneliest lady the mainland knows
Ever since the time she was in her prime
When he promised she would hear those Maui chimes

Island rose, do you still wear that faded flower lei
Could it be an island rose that wasn’t meant to be
And did you meet him by the bay where you heard him say
He would take you to his island in the sea

Island rose, do you still wear that faded flower lei
Could it be an island rose that wasn’t meant to be
And did you meet him by the bay where you heard him say
He would take you to his island in the sea

Cross The Oceans (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1737)

On the mainland shore it was night time
Leilani was sweet on his mind
The life of a sailor he had chosen
And he had left Leilani behind
Too long he had been a sailor
He knew he had let Leilani down
But that day he had received a letter
Leilani wanted him back in old Lahaina town

Cross the oceans toward islands
Sail hard and I’ll be island bound
Cross the oceans toward islands
My love waits in old Lahaina town

He remembered the night that he met her
It was under the stars shining bright
He knew he could never forget her
Now he could set everything right
In old Lahaina, Leilani was waiting
For the promise he had made long ago
It seemed like the storms were abating
Over islands where soft tradewinds blow

Then the night came alive with lightning
The gale blew the ship on the reef
The breakers were awesome and frightening
The ocean would not give relief
Leilani knew her sailor was dying
Washed up on the shore in vain
As she kissed his lips while crying
Leilani heard him whisper again

Cross the oceans toward islands
Sail hard and I’ll be island bound
Cross the oceans toward islands
My love waits in old Lahaina town

My love waits in old Lahaina town



Baffin Bay Blues (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1738)

Her eyes are as bright as the tropic stars
Her cheeks are as warm as an island rose
Moana is a most beautiful island girl
Back home where warm tradewinds blow

Weep all you cold arctic rains
Wail through the yardarms in gales
Wishing whaling was not in my veins
Nor cold arctic winds in my sails

Sail throughout the lonely nights
Sail on through the lonely days
Chasing whales in northern lights
Wishing I could just change my ways

Her eyes are as bright as the tropic stars
Her cheeks are as warm as an island rose
Moana is a most beautiful island girl
Back home where warm tradewinds blow

Baffin Bay sure is stormy at night
So dark are the gray cloudy skies
Wish I were under tropic moons bright
With my Moana in her paradise

Her eyes are as bright as the tropic stars
Her cheeks are as warm as an island rose
Moana is a most beautiful island girl
Back home where warm tradewinds blow



Rose Of Old Lahaina Town (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1739)

Way out in the sea lies a memory
Of an island rose in old Lahaina town
Where in dreams she seems like a melody
A song of island love I found

The air is warm where soft tradewinds blow
Deep velvet nights filled with stars up above
The moonlit bay sets lovers hearts aglow
They hear my broken song of island love

Tropic moon, be the defender of my broken heart
Speak to my rose, island rose of old Lahaina town
Her love was sweet and tender, right from the start
Shine your beams upon my love when the sun goes down

Broken hearted song, empty dreams I’ve found
Somewhere in my heart they still hang around
For that moonlit bay where island love was found
And my rose, island rose of old Lahaina town

Broken hearted song, empty dreams I’ve found
Somewhere in my heart they still hang around
For that moonlit bay where island love was found
And my rose, island rose of old Lahaina town



Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1740)

I’m so lonely tonight, island girl
I’m lonely and sad and blue
There’s an empty place in my heart
That no one can fill but you

Please come back, island girl
Please come back and stay
My heart is sinking as in a whirl
Of the ocean outside the bay

I’m dreaming of you, island girl
My dreams are empty and sad
You were always my island pearl
The sweetest love I ever had

Do you remember our moonlight walks
We talked as we strolled along
Please come back and undo this lock
Open my heart with an island song

Think of me tonight, island girl
You know I’m thinking of you
You’re the only island girl
That my heart ever loved so true

Do you remember our moonlight walks
We talked as we strolled along
Please come back and undo this lock
Open my heart with an island song



Island Breeze Dreams (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1741)

I’m an island man, young and strong
Breezes around me sing their tradewind song
Island delights under a tropic moon
I stroll along and I sing this island tune

Here in old Lahaina town
Never do I wear a frown
An island man I’ll be found
Strolling along in the island breeze

I left the mainland behind
Here is where dreams come to mind
An island love I will find
Strolling along in the island breeze

I know that when dreams are forgone
Another dream will come with the dawn

I’ll keep strolling along
In my heart rings a sweet island song
Here on the isle I belong
Strolling along in the island breeze

I know that when dreams are forgone
Another dream will come with the dawn

I’ll keep strolling along
In my heart rings a sweet island song
Here on the isle I belong
Strolling along in the island breeze



When It’s Luau Time (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1742)

Most people say that there’s no place like home
Somewhere within their fondest memories
Well, around the world I have roamed
And there’s only one place I’d rather be

When it’s luau time in Hawaii with a hula girl on the stage
I long to be back in Hawaii instead of Texas’ purple sage
I can smell kalua pig cooking in that underground imu pit
Kiho’alu songs the big band’s playing always are a hit

Just a strollin’ rollin’, surfin’ in the bay all day long
Just a meetin’, greetin’, eatin’ fish and poi, singin’ island songs
Don’t know when I’ll get back to turn back to that page
When it’s luau time in Hawaii with a hula girl on the stage

When it’s luau time in Hawaii with a hula girl on the stage
I long to be back in Hawaii instead of Texas’ purple sage
That old sugar mill is calling, calling me from afar
Back to those island luau nights under those tropic stars

How I long to return to where island roses grow
Back to my hula girl rose, the one that I love so
She’s the cutest island beauty and in Hawaii she’s the rage
When it’s luau time in Hawaii with a hula girl on the stage

She’s the cutest island beauty and in Hawaii she’s the rage
When it’s luau time in Hawaii with a hula girl on the stage



Lowly And Lonesome (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1743)

Lowly and lonesome, gloomy and blue
Dreaming only of your isle and you
You’re the only worthwhile girl I knew
I’m lowly and lonesome dreaming of you

Do you miss me on your island too
Let me know, darling, if it is true
Is your heart yearning for my returning
I’m lowly and lonesome dreaming of you

Lowly and lonesome, don’t know what to do
You’re the only worthwhile girl I knew
Don’t make me wait, love, it’s just not right, love
I’m lowly and lonesome dreaming of you

Do you miss me on your island too
Let me know, darling, if it is true
Is your heart yearning for my returning
I’m lowly and lonesome dreaming of you

Lowly and lonesome, don’t know what to do
You’re the only worthwhile girl I knew
Don’t make me wait, love, it’s just not right, love
I’m lowly and lonesome dreaming of you



Waltz Of The Soft Tradewind Breeze (Larry W. Jones 07/08/2003) (song#1744)

In the warm balmy air as I held you
So closely there in my arms
The breeze seemed to whisper about you
All the magical things of your charms

On island sand in the moonlight
The wind swayed the palm trees
As we danced to the waltz that night
The waltz of the soft tradewind breeze

The moon up above beamed down with love
And told me that you too were pleased
As we danced to the waltz that night
The waltz of the soft tradewind breeze

I knew then that every endeavor
Was worth more that the rainbow’s gold
For this love that would last forever
In my heart and in my arms to hold

Now I’m dreaming all day about you
For you held my heart and its keys
As we danced to the waltz that night
The waltz of the soft tradewind breeze

The waltz of the soft tradewind breeze



Makawao Kiho’alu (Larry W. Jones 07/07/2003) (song#1745)

If you’re gonna play music in Hawaii
You gotta know some kiho’alu
That piano might be hot, you see
But not for an island man like me and you
So, loosen up those koa guitar strings
And play some Gabby Pahinui songs of island love
If you’re gonna play music in Hawaii
You gotta know what kiho’alu songs are of

I remember over in old Maui
Seemed like the show was goin’ slow
When a Hawaiian cowboy in the back yelled at me
We want to hear some kiho’alu here in Makawao
He said you mainlanders don’t know what you’re doin’
The music’s good but you’ve got it all wrong
So, he showed us how to loosen the strings
And play sweet sounding kiho’alu island songs

If you’re gonna play music in Hawaii
You gotta know some kiho’alu
That piano might be hot, you see
But not for an island man like me and you
So, now when we go to play music in Hawaii
We loosen up the strings and away we go
That kiho’alu slack key sure sounds sweet
When it’s played like they do in Makawao

If you’re gonna play music in Hawaii
You gotta know some kiho’alu
If you’re gonna play music in Hawaii
Loosen up the strings like they do in Makawao



A New Song Blowin’ (Larry W. Jones 07/10/2003) (song#1746)

There’s a new song blowin’ in the tropic air
I hear it whispering through palm trees
Deep in my heart I feel it there
Warm as the island breeze

I’m carried back to gentler times
When I strolled these sands before
Life back then had Aloha love’s designs
As gentle as the tide upon the shore

Don’t know why, I can’t describe what’s in the air
Its soothing balm just feels so very rare
I haven’t changed at all, but everything hears the island’s call
There’s a new song blowin’ in the tropic air

The breeze is blowing, soon be going
There’ll be another blowing in
In my heart I feel love that’s growing
Taking me back to where I’ve been

I guess it’s something I can’t understand
But I can feel you and me strolling in the sand

Don’t know why, I can’t describe what’s in the air
Its soothing balm just feels so very rare
I haven’t changed at all, but everything hears the island’s call
There’s a new song blowin’ in the tropic air

There’s a new song blowin’ in the tropic air



Kapalua Bay (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1747)

The Maui shoreline held her
As an island girl where tall palms sway
Now, as an island lady, she still prefers
The shoreline of Kapalua bay

The valley streams feed the water
To the rhythm of Maui chimes
And I still need that Maui’s daughter
As I’m turning back the times

The sandy beaches still look the same
As they did that long ago day
But the tide won’t bring her love to claim
Where breezes blow on Kapalua bay

The sails I see out on the water
Are coming to take me away
Away from Maui’s lovely daughter
And away from Kapalua bay

Just a few miles from old Lahaina
Maui’s shoreline holds her still
So, with a smile I bid Aloha ‘oe
I could never hold her against her will

Now I’m weighing anchor and sailing past
The memories that take me away
Back to the island girl that I saw last
On the shoreline of Kapalua bay



When Gabby Pahinui Played (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1748)


When I bought this koa guitar
It had new tight strings
But in Hawaii, if you wanna be a star
You gotta make slack key kiho’alu music ring

I took it to every island I went
Played everywhere and every event
I could see the island girls liked it too
When I played that slack key kiho’alu

Wish I could win their hearts like when Gabby Pahinui played
Pickin’ slack key guitar so kiho’alu will never fade

But I’ll need more lessons from Kapono Beamer too
To play slack key guitar like kiho’alu dreamers do
My pickin’ is good but any day I’d trade
Anything to pick guitar like Gabby Pahinui played

I took it to every island I went
Played everywhere and every event
I could see the island girls liked it too
When I played that slack key kiho’alu

Wish I could win their hearts like when Gabby Pahinui played
Pickin’ slack key guitar so kiho’alu will never fade



A New Devotion (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1749)

I’m looking for a road sign
That says I’m going the wrong way
Daring to dream that you’d be mine
Here on the isle where breezes play

But all I hear is a new song
Like the one before she went away
And it made me feel so very fine
When a sweet Aloha I heard you say

A new devotion, one with emotion surrounds me
A new devotion I can relate to
And what it’s relating, I’ve been waiting
A long time to come true
A new devotion, one with emotion
Is surrounding me and you

There’s no more looking for road signs
That say I’m going the wrong way
You’re sharing the dream that you’d be mine
Here on the isle where breezes play with…..

A new devotion, one with emotion surrounds me
A new devotion I can relate to
And what it’s relating, I’ve been waiting
A long time to come true
A new devotion, one with emotion
Is surrounding me and you

And what it’s relating, I’ve been waiting
A long time to come true
A new devotion, one with emotion
Is surrounding me and you



Just Like Our Love (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1750)

In days of yore with a younger island maid
He was so in love and couldn’t ask for more
Her heart he won and their love has stayed
Like a love song played on a moonlit shore

And they still promenade on the ocean liners
Although their dancing is a little slow
And you couldn’t ask for anything finer
Than their love that stayed to grow and grow
Just like our love here where tradewinds blow

Even though they’re up in years, they’re still kickin’
And the reason is still the same old thing
On the island and ocean liners, they’re still pickin’
All those island songs, makin’ steel guitars ring

And they still promenade on the ocean liners
Although their dancing is a little slow
And you couldn’t ask for anything finer
Than their love that stayed to grow and grow
Just like our love here where tradewinds blow

They still promenade on the ocean liners
And you couldn’t ask for anything finer
Just like our love here where tradewinds blow

Just like our love here where tradewinds blow



That Dream In My Life (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1751)

Sometimes the more you try the harder it gets
I’ll bet my bottom nickel that’s the way it went
And I’m glad it’s you who has the regrets
Cause as long as I have her love, I’ll be content

There’s something on the isle that makes me smile
I see it everywhere I look, it’s true
It’s a dream that came from where breezes blew
That dream in my life is you

Now, I’ve strolled the sand like many an island man
And I don’t even know where the time was spent
Until I saw her strolling too, looking tall and tan
And as long as I have her love, I’ll be content

One thing’s for sure on the island shore
I don’t need no cure, I just ask for more
For the rest of my life, I’ll dream, it’s true
That dream in my life is you

One thing’s for sure on the island shore
I don’t need no cure, I just ask for more
For the rest of my life, I’ll dream, it’s true
That dream in my life is you



The Moon Aglow (Larry W. Jones 07/12/2003) (song#1752)

You never know how far a kiss might go
On a moonlit night where tradewinds blow
On a night like this with the moon aglow
This time I might hear those Maui chimes

When I kiss this island miss here in my arms
And tell her I insist on all her charms
If this is island love, she’s the one for me
She has all the ingredients for love’s recipe
On a night like this with the moon aglow

I made a mental list here by the sea
Of things that I insist are just gotta be
Like a kiss and a hug from this island miss, you see
On a night like this with the moon aglow

Right here on the sandy shore where love found us
It sure was handy that island love was around us
Now it can’t leave cause it can’t get around us
But I’ve gotta know, is it just the moon aglow

I’ve gotta know, this love that flows
Is it love that’s true and does she know
That love can die if it’s just an afterglow
So, I’ve gotta know, is it just the moon aglow
Sure hope that’s not so

I’ve gotta know, this love that flows
Is it love that’s true and does she know
That love can die if it’s just an afterglow
So, I’ve gotta know, is it just the moon aglow
Sure hope that’s not so

Let me know, oh let me know
I’ve gotta know
I hope it’s not just the moon aglow



Call Of The Island (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1753)

There’s no smile on this mainland
Not even a moonlit bay
I hear the call of the island
Soon I’ll be on my way
Lately I’ve been schemin’
About when my ship comes steamin’
I won’t have to a-dreamin’ any more

When my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in
I’ll just float right off the mainland
Be on a boat toward soft tradewinds
Answerin’ the call of the island
She’ll be waitin’ when my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in
Gonna disembark where soft tradewinds blow
I’ll find my island love one more time
Where the weather’s fine
When my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in

I know I’m not just dreamin’, this feelin’s real
That call of the island reveals a tropic zone
This isn’t just some mainland fever
It’s a dream weaver on an even keel
Takin’ me back to my island home

When my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in
I’ll just float right off the mainland
Be on a boat toward soft tradewinds
Answerin’ the call of the island
She’ll be waitin’ when my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in
Gonna disembark where soft tradewinds blow
I’ll find my island love one more time
Where the weather’s fine
When my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in

I’ll just float right off the mainland
Be on a boat toward soft tradewinds
Answerin’ the call of the island
She’ll be waitin’ when my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in
Gonna disembark where soft tradewinds blow
When my ship comes steamin’, dreamin’ in



Been There Done That Too (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1754)

I thought islands of love were only a dream
And that endless love didn’t mean a thing
But when I found you, something had a familiar ring
Like a love song that came from eternal spring

When the sun and moon were put in motion
And paradise saw stars that would bring emotion
When Mauna Kea first felt the snow fall
And the tropic island first made it’s love call
I loved you then and now I love you true
Like I’ve already been there, done that too

When the island felt the first warm tropic breeze
You and I were there strolling by the seas
When the dawn shed light on old father time
I was drawn to your island and you were mine

When the sun and moon were put in motion
And paradise saw stars that would bring emotion
When Mauna Kea first felt the snow fall
And the tropic island first made it’s love call
I loved you then and now I love you true
Like I’ve already been there, done that too

Like I’ve already been there, done that too



One In A Million (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1755)

The chance of a lifetime only comes around once a week
That’s what they say in real estate
But a love like this only comes once in a million years
So, I hope I’m not too late
She’s a moonlight swing on a tropic star
Makes the island ring like a steel guitar
She’s one in a million and I could be a millionaire
The chance of a lifetime beyond compare

Well, she caught my eye with her hula sway
At the big luau down by the bay
Like a lifeboat, a loveboat on the deep blue sea
She’s a love note that time wrote for harmony

I hope I’m not late, might not be a tomorrow
And I would hate to see my heart in sorrow
She’s one in a million and I could be a millionaire
The chance of a lifetime beyond compare

The chance of a lifetime only comes around once a week
That’s what they say in real estate
But a love like this only comes once in a million years
So, I hope I’m not too late
She’s a moonlight swing on a tropic star
Makes the island ring like a steel guitar
She’s one in a million and I could be a millionaire
The chance of a lifetime beyond compare



Face The Fact (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1756)

When the tropic moon is shining bright
On any starry island night
There’s a million diamonds on the bay
And one memory that makes me say
I’ll just have to face the fact
That I want her warm embraces back
Once in a while

My mind is open to that memory
I just close my eyes and smile
At a paradise that used to be
When I used to be with her on the isle
I’ll just have to face the fact
That I want her warm embraces back
Once in a while

There were times I tried to forget her
But those times are just a blur
Every day and night here in paradise
I see her somewhere before my eyes
And sometimes I whisper her name out loud
Catch myself smiling alone in a crowd
They think I’m in a cloud

My mind is open to that memory
I just close my eyes and smile
At a paradise that used to be
When I used to be with her on the isle
I’ll just have to face the fact
That I want her warm embraces back
Once in a while



South Seas Ocean Breeze (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1757)

This is now a fortnight under south pacific shooting stars
I crossed the equator on a southern breeze
I wonder if Tahiti is where you are
You said that you would go there
If our love should ever freeze
A fortnight past the equator on the south seas ocean breeze

So I sailed the southern seas into Pago Pago, Samoa
They said you sailed south five degrees
To Avarua Rarotonga
You said that you would go there
If our love should ever freeze
A fortnight past the equator on the south seas ocean breeze

There’s an island in the ocean where our love began
It was filled with such emotion
With tradewinds the flame was fanned
In a quiet seaside village
Of the sunny southern seas
Music of love was in the air on the south seas ocean breeze

The pace of life is slowing the further south I go
I feel soft breezes blowing
But for whom, I do not know
I’ll keep on searching
For that girl my heart to appease
Somewhere south in Tahiti on the south seas ocean breeze

There’s an island in the ocean where our love began
It was filled with such emotion
With tradewinds the flame was fanned
In a quiet seaside village
Of the sunny southern seas
Music of love was in the air on the south seas ocean breeze

A fortnight south of the equator
On the south seas ocean breeze



West Maui Mountains (Larry W. Jones 07/13/2003) (song#1758)

In the west Maui mountains
Tradewinds whisper through the trees
And sweet lehua flowers are blooming
In the valleys by the sea

My lonely heart is achin’
For that island girl I left behind
And I’d give my all to hear that call
From the girl who’s on my mind

In the west Maui mountains
Tradewinds whisper through the trees
And sweet lehua flowers are blooming
In the valleys by the sea

From across the sea they call me
Two loves that I love true
For the west Maui mountains
And the girl I love there too

In the west Maui mountains
Tradewinds whisper through the trees
And sweet lehua flowers are blooming
In the valleys by the sea

From across the sea they call me
Two loves that I love true
For the west Maui mountains
And the girl I love there too



Southern Seas Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2003) (song#1759)


Low and sweet, sweet and low
Tradewinds of the southern seas
Love is complete where there blows
Tradewinds of the southern seas

Over the peaceful oceans go
Come from the tropic moon and blow
Blow my dear one back home to me
While my baby sleeps so peacefully

Dream and sleep, sleep and dream
Your sailior Papa will come back soon
Sleep and dream while starlight beams
Your sailior Papa will come back soon

Papa will see his baby in his bed
No more tears will then be shed
Billowed sails will come home soon
Under the full gold tropic moon

Dream and sleep, sleep and dream
Your Papa will see his baby soon

Blue Moon Again (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2003) (song#1760)

Well, my gold moon turned to blue again
And the clouds drove the rainbow far away
Yeah, my gold moon turned to blue again
The day you turned my love away

I thought your memory would warm my heart
But those memories just brought me pain
I thought you would be my sweet sweetheart
But my gold moon turned to blue again

The lips I used to kiss right from the start
Now just dismiss that right for me
I can only dream of your love, sweetheart
Cause my gold moon is just a memory

The castles we built were made of sand
And my heart now has a ball and chain
I guess I’ll never be your island man
Cause my gold moon turned to blue again

The lips I used to kiss right from the start
Now just dismiss that right for me
I can only dream of your love, sweetheart
Cause my gold moon is just a memory

The castles we built were made of sand
And my heart now has a ball and chain
I guess I’ll never be your island man
Cause my gold moon turned to blue again



Island Girl I Love (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2003) (song#1761)

Over the ocean, waiting there for me
Back on the island where I long to be
I know this light that’s shining here on me
Will shine on the island girl I love

As I look up at the moon
The moon is looking down on me
Down from the heavens
And out across the sea
May the beams of love that shine on me
Shine on the island girl I love

As I listen to the morning dove
The dove listens to my plea
He sings to me a melody
A song about my island love
May the song that I hear so sweetly
Be heard by the island girl I love

As I kiss the petal of a rose
The rose sends back a kiss for me
Just like the fragrant tuberose
From her island somewhere in the sea
May a rose like this that’s kissing me
Bring a kiss to the island girl I love

May the moon and morning dove and the petal of a rose
Guide me safely to the island girl I love
Guide me safely to the island girl I love



Valley Island (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2003) (song#1762)

Over oceans west I’m longing to be
Where an island rests so lovely in the sea
Where the Lokelani rose blooms luxuriantly
On a gentle slope of Maui, the Valley Island

Maui is the isle of my childhood
The one I’m dreaming to see
As the ship leaves the mainland
And steams across the sea
Soon I’ll see the tropic moon
Shining golden just for me
When I rest once more upon
The Valley Island

Gentle are the waves that roll at Kapalua bay
Where the palm trees wave at island folks at play
On the sands of time I’ll stroll along each day
And I’ll never roam again from the Valley Island

A shining gem of Hawaii, basking in the sun
Of a balmy summer dawn where local folk are one
Oh, how I’ve waited for the day to view the starry night
On my childhood Maui home, the Valley Island



Island Soul, Afterglow (Larry W. Jones 07/14/2003) (song#1763)

See the sunshine on the isle
Feel the warmth that makes you smile
Taste the flavors for awhile
Island soul, afterglow

As the island days unfold
The days are warm, there is no cold
Island ways are there to hold
Island soul, afterglow

An island is the place to live
Folks you meet are there to give
Find an island just for you
Find an island love that’s true

I found mine in old Lahaina town
She smiles at me when I’m around
Her love will never let me down
Island soul, afterglow

An island is the place to live
Folks you meet are there to give
Find an island just for you
Find an island love that’s true

See the sunshine on the isle
Feel the warmth that makes you smile
Taste the flavors for awhile
Island soul, afterglow



Claudette (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2003) (song#1764)

Well, there’s a brand new hurricane blowin’ no good
She’s churnin’ up the gulf like I knew she would
She’s on her way to my house and I’m outta breath
When I see her tonight she’s gonna be my death
Claudette, blowin’, goin’ hurricane, Claudette
Make me feel so ‘fraid, Claudette
You’re the nastiest girl I ever met
I get the worst feelin’ I’ll ever get
From Claudette, make me sweat, Claudette

I don’t feel like a lucky man, baby don’t treat me right
She’s gonna blow from Lousian’ to Brownsville tonight
When July 15 is over, she’ll be at my front door
But I can’t kiss that windy miss blowin’ on the Texas shore
Claudette, not my pet, Claudette
You’re the nastiest girl I ever met
I get the worst feelin’ I’ll ever get
From Claudette, make me sweat, Claudette

Well, when she comes ashore at Matagorda Bay
I’m not gonna ask my baby to stay
I’ll be happy and free from strife
If I never see another Claudette for the rest of my life
Claudette, make me sweat, Claudette
You’re the nastiest girl I ever met
I get the worst feelin’ I’ll ever get
From Claudette, make me sweat, Claudette
Hurricane Claudette



Dream Come True (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2003) (song#1765)

I thought right here in Hawaii blue
You would be my everything
But even rainbows have lost their hue
And lost their island theme

Adversities from your lonely past
Means that you’re still blue
Why can’t you fill my memories
And be my dream come true

Can’t you hear those Maui chimes
Playing now for me and you
Why can’t you just forget past times
And be the one who says I do

Your heart is filled with agonies
From some island love you knew
Why can’t you fill my memories
And be my dream come true

Maui chimes play for me and you
Here by the deep blue sea
But your heart is empty now, it’s true
And there’s no room for me

The shore has drawn your boundaries
Here in Hawaii blue
Why can’t you fill my memories
And be my dream come true



An Island Man Some Day (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2003) (song#1766)

I’m just a mainland lonely soul
But I’m gonna be an island man some day
I’m gonna grow where breezes blow
Then I can smile at the human race

I’m livin’ here where the nights are cold
And I cain’t go out and play
I’m just a mainland lonely soul
But I’m gonna be an island man some day

I’m gonna learn to speak like a real Hawaiian
Or maybe that reggae lingo they call Jawaiian

I’m gonna practice my slow island strollin’
Learn how to net reef fish instead of bowlin’
Ride them big surfboards with the breakers rollin’
I’m gonna be an island man someday

I’m just a mainland lonely soul
But I’m gonna be an island man some day
Find me a girl where breezes blow
I’m gonna be an island man some day



A Faded Island Star (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2003) (song#1767)

The crowd was light the night he played the luau show
His big days were gone but he smiled as if he didn’t know
When the tiki torchs they lit that night began to burn down low
He knew his big time days were gone where island breezes blow

How soon would the tropic moon stop shining on a faded island star
His tunes were no longer topics lining billboards from afar
Something all along said that I might be no longer making par
But I’ll sing island songs all night if you’ll listen to a faded island star

He used to play Waikiki to the biggest tourist crowds around
But now all he sees are the dark clouds coming down
They used to say where the breezes play that his was the best guitar
But now today they’ve gone away to find a brand new island star

How soon would the tropic moon stop shining on a faded island star
His tunes were no longer topics lining billboards from afar
Something all along said that I might be no longer making par
But I’ll sing island songs all night if you’ll listen to a faded island star

I’ll sing island songs all night if you’ll listen to a faded island star



Nä Makani eha O Moloka’i (Larry W. Jones 07/15/2003) (song#1768)

Nä makani eha o Moloka’i, four winds of the valleys by the coast
Are like beautiful girls about whom the locals boast
They are beauties of the wind like a love song in the air
Nä makani eha o Moloka’i, like beauties with flowers in their hair

The Halawa valley wind is a strong north wind
But it’s still warm on Moloka’i
When you go there and feel it on your skin
You’ll know the Ho’olua beauty is flowing from the sea

Wailau valley has a secretive wind
That blows in gently from the ocean swell
The Ekepue wind feels as soft as a violin
It’s an island beauty where tradewinds dwell

Pelekunu valley has a warm damp wind
Flowing through the narrow valley floor
When you smell the fragrant Pu’upilo wind
You will want to feel this island beauty more

Waikolu valley has the lush ferns and grass
That sways in rhythm like the waves
The Kilio`opu wind is an island girl with class
An island beauty that Waikolu valley gave

Let the refrain be told
Of the winds of the valleys of Moloka’i
Nä makani eha o Moloka’i
Four winds of the valleys by the coast



Jealous Moon (Larry W. Jones 07/16/2003) (song#1769)

The man in the moon is jealous of me
Especially in June of fellas like me
Cause I’m staying here making her swoon
While the moon has to leave real soon

Here I can stay beside my sweetheart
The night is young and love is in tune
But pretty soon, the man in the moon must depart
While we stroll in the sand in June

It’s a warm summer night on the island
All the stars are staring at us like eyes
They’re all jealous that you’re the one
That I can stay with here in paradise

The man in the moon has no arms to hold you
The stars will close their eyes come the dawn
But my heart is still here to enfold you
And love you jealously til time itself is gone

The man in the moon is jealous of me
All the stars are staring at us like eyes
They’re all jealous that you’re the one
That I can stay with here in paradise



An Island Love Like This (Larry W. Jones 07/19/2003) (song#1770)

An island love like this was meant to be
All you have to do is believe
And I’m sure you’ll agree
It feels like such a familiar shore
Almost like we’ve met here before
I know love like this was meant to be

An island love like this was meant to be
A lifetime has passed, it seems
For this moment of dreams
Who could have foretold of this
That it would be worth waiting a lifetime
A lifetime for your kiss

Times change and people change
But true love will always be around
An island in the stream of time
Will last forever til the end of time
We will let this island love, our life surround
With music of love as sweet as Maui chimes

Ours will be the longest lasting love of all
Forever and a day as long as islands call
All you have to do is believe
And I’m sure you’ll agree
An island love like this was meant to be
An island love like this was meant to be



That Same Dream Is Mine (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2003) (song#1771)

Dream that you’re on an island
In a turquoise sea
Strolling along the sand
In the soft tradewind breeze
Along comes an island man
Dreaming too on island time
You’ll recognize the dream and know
That same dream is mine

Islands are made for dreaming
And sometimes dreams come true
Where moonlight is softly beaming
There you’ll find love for me and you

Dream that you’re on an island
In the sunny summertime
There’s no tuxedo or cummerbund
Or funny love pantomime
Romance is the real thing
That you’ve been dreaming of
So, take a chance on what I bring
And dream a dream of island love

Islands are made for dreaming
And sometimes dreams come true
Where moonlight is softly beaming
There you’ll find love for me and you

Romance is the real thing
That you’ve been dreaming of
So, take a chance on what I bring
And dream a dream of island love
Along comes an island man
Dreaming too on island time
You’ll recognize the dream and know
That same dream is mine

You’ll recognize the dream and know
That same dream is mine



Hawaii’s Shores (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2003) (song#1772)

Listen to the breeze tradewinds are bringing
Of Hawaiian isles across the silver sea
Love is there to please your heart with singing
Where dreams come true for you and me
Bright the moon above with beams of love
Shining on the sea like diamonds in the night
See the tall palm trees swaying in the breeze
Dreams of love they will to you invite

Across the silver sea something is calling me
Causing my heart to forever yearn
Calling me back so temptingly
Back to fair Hawaii I must return

Watch as the waves roll upon the sand
Like a gentle kiss of an island girl and man
Soft as the moonlight on a distant shore
Calling me home with dreams I can’t ignore
See the stars that fill the tropic sky
Guiding dreamers back to open doors
Never more to say goodbye
For love is on Hawaii’s shores



Music On The Shore (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2003) (song#1773)

In a peaceful corner of the world
On a little island in the sea
In a cottage window there unfurled
A curtain flutters in the breeze

The breeze is as gentle as silk
Whispering through paradise
The curtain is as white as milk
So pleasing to the eyes

The island music that I hear
Reaching clear into the sky
Is floating from the windowsill
Just like a lovely butterfly

Music on the shore of the tropic sea
Music that fills every part of me
Music from my corner of the world
No one can take this song from me

The island music that I hear
Reaching clear into the sky
Is floating from the windowsill
Just like a lovely butterfly

Music on the shore of the tropic sea
Music that fills every part of me
Music from my corner of the world
No one can take this song from me



The Rain That Never Fell (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2003) (song#1774)

Listen to the talk story told
The legend from Hawaiian isles of old
About the rain that never fell
And of love’s magic spell
That til this day is still retold

A stranger strolled upon the shore
By the Hilo bay so warm
An island maid he found there to implore
A gift from her loving charms

This mystery was her gift of love
That in Hawaiian skies above
Dark clouds would never fill the air
And no rain to mar the sky so fair
Any time that she was in his arms

A stranger strolled upon the shore
By the Hilo bay so warm
An island maid he found there to implore
A gift from her loving charms

This mystery was her gift of love
That in Hawaiian skies above
Dark clouds would never fill the air
And no rain to mar the sky so fair
Any time that she was in his arms

Let the refrain be heard
Of the island maiden’s gift that day
And the rain that never fell
By the Hilo bay



Raindrop (Larry W. Jones 07/20/2003) (song#1775)

So lovely was the raindrop in the sky
That mingled with the rainbow’s hue
Just a shining point in paradise
A single raindrop so hard to view

Then the lovely raindrop fell
Onto the island ground below
Where it would go no one could tell
Even the raindrop didn’t know

The raindrop disappeared for just awhile
It was just moisture in the earth
But then the sun shined on the isle
And showed the raindrop it’s real worth

The raindrop smiled with great delight
As from the ground the water flowed
All around was viewed by all a lovely sight
For it was now a fragrant island rose

The raindrop disappeared for just awhile
It was just moisture in the earth
But then the sun shined on the isle
And showed the raindrop it’s real worth

The raindrop smiled with great delight
As from the ground the water flowed
All around was viewed by all a lovely sight
For it was now a fragrant island rose



Eternal Song (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1776)

I asked the stars up in the skies
What can I give my love in paradise
I can’t give her stars up in the skies
But I can give her a love that never dies
The stars remained silent to my surprise

I asked the waves of the deep blue sea
To show me how our love was to be
Could I show her true love tenderly
But the waves only answered back to me
With silence to my earnest plea

I asked the moon shining up above
What could I give my island love
To let her know who I’m dreaming of
And the moon shined upon a dove
So I gave to her my everlasting love

Oh, I could never leave her weeping
Only silence would surely be wrong
My love from her I can’t be keeping
She is my heart’s eternal song
For I will love her my whole life long



Leilani’s Kiss (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1777)

I met Moana in the island spring
I kissed her by the island shore
But it was just a passing thing
For I saw Moana never more

I met Malea in the island fall
I kissed Malea by the lovely bay
But one kiss and that was all
I haven’t seen Malea since that day

I met Leilani by the peaceful sea
But Leilani only looked at me
Yet the kiss in Leilani’s eyes
Haunts my memories of paradise

Moana’s kiss was lost in time
Malea’s kiss was lost in rhyme
Yet the kiss in Leilani’s eyes
Haunts my memories of paradise

Moana’s kiss was lost in time
Malea’s kiss was lost in rhyme
Yet the kiss in Leilani’s eyes
Haunts my memories of paradise



Lonely Ache (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1778)

Her beauty was beyond compare
Girl with the flower in her hair
For her love I sleep and wake
Since my life was hers to take

Losing her is too much to bear
She drifted with the island air
Now my empty heart will break
And who can heal this lonely ache

Now I stand alone on the shore
Looking at the deep blue sea
Will I ever see her more
Will she come back to me

All the loves in all the world
Could never fill my empty breast
Away from me her love was hurled
No other love can give me rest

Now I stand alone on the shore
Looking at the deep blue sea
Will I ever see her more
Will she come back to me

Will I ever see her more
Will she come back to me


Love Me Kiss Me (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1779)

Birds of paradise are singing all day long
Singing by the sea
Birds of paradise are singing all day long
From the island sweetheart tree

Fly to my love this island song
Fly to her for me
Fly to my love this island song
Please love me, love me, love me

When you find her, this please say
Please say for me
When you find her, this please say
If she does miss me

Stroll with me down by the bay
By the peaceful sea
Stroll with me down by the bay
And kiss me, kiss me, kiss me

Birds of paradise are singing all day long
Singing by the sea
Fly to my love this island song
Please love me, love me, love me

When you find her, this please say
Please say for me
Stroll with me down by the bay
And kiss me, kiss me, kiss me



Old Lahaina Sugar Mill (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1780)

There’s an old sugar mill outside Lahaina town
At the foot of a red dirt hill
It still has a chimney that’s partly tumbled down
With a sign that says Old Lahaina Sugar Mill

There’s no more smoke from the chimney arises
Nothing from that old tumbled stack
But I guess there aren’t many surprises
Everybody knows it’s never coming back

And I only hear the sound
That is whispered on the wind
As it blows through old Lahaina town
This is the end, this is the end

There’s no more sounds that start at dawn
From the old Lahaina sugar mill
Those island ways have come and gone
Now it’s quiet and all too still

I’ve been here too long to make a change
But I’m still too young to want to die
There’s no place else where I could rearrange
This life I’ve lived in paradise

And I only hear the sound
That is whispered on the wind
As it blows through old Lahaina town
This is the end, this is the end

There’s an old sugar mill outside Lahaina town
At the foot of a red dirt hill
It still has a chimney that’s partly tumbled down
With a sign that says Old Lahaina Sugar Mill
Old Lahaina sugar mill



At The Luau Once Again (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1781)

When you live on an island of Hawaii
Everybody is your friend
That’s one thing on which you can depend
And they’ll all come to the luau
But that’s no big surprise
Cause Aloha ‘oe means we’ll see you again in paradise

Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means that I’ll see you again
Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means I’ll see you at the luau once again

Island folks are comin’, some aren’t even cousins
Eatin’ fish and poi down by the bay
And when the eatin’s over, they just all roll over
And this is what they have to say

Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means that I’ll see you again
Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means I’ll see you at the luau once again

Poor old kupuna wahini grandma
Wish they would all be like old grandpa
And help her cook the fish and poi down by the bay
But all the cousins are waving bye bye
Poor old kupuna wahini grandma gives a sigh
But then you will hear her say

Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means that I’ll see you again
Aloha ‘oe, Aloha ‘oe
Oh, Aloha ‘oe means I’ll see you at the luau once again



Hawaii, Wait For Me (Larry W. Jones 07/21/2003) (song#1782)

Hawaii..
You are the dearest island this side of heaven to me

Hawaii,
I miss your warm beaches and tall coco palm trees

When I die, I want to sleep by your beautiful sea
And in God’s new world, I’ll live in Hawaii eternally

Hawaii,
I miss the kama’aina folks playing koa guitars at night

Hawaii,
I miss the luau under the bright tropic moonlight
I know that makuahini, makua kane and ku’u ipo are waiting for me

Hawaii,
Your shores I will see very soon

Hawaii…
Please wait there for me



A Tropic Island Boy (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1783)

I’m just a tropic island boy
Returning to the shores where I belong
Where the tall palm trees all wave in the breeze
And the people are filled with song

I’ll be crossing that equator soon
Toward home for this island boy
I remember those times under the moon
When I went to the luau and sang those tunes
And ate my fill of fish and poi

I’m just a tropic island boy
Returning to the shores where I belong
Where the tall palm trees all wave in the breeze
And the people are filled with song

I can almost see the waves breaking against the reef
Sending salt spray in the air
How I’ve missed ridin’ waves just like a chief
Can’t wait til I’ll be there

I’m just a tropic island boy
Returning to the shores where I belong
Where the tall palm trees all wave in the breeze
And the people are filled with song

I’ve done a lot of sailin’ and met some girls
But none of them can compare
To the ones back on my island world
So pretty with the flowers in their hair

I’m just a tropic island boy
Returning to the shores where I belong
Where the tall palm trees all wave in the breeze
And the people are filled with song



True Love Winds (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1784)

You four winds blowing through Hawaiian skies
You all are knowing true love here in paradise
Oh, please whisper to me what to do
And tell me if my island love is true

The Ho’olua wind came from the north
And whispered in my ear just what to do
If you want true love to blossom forth
Love her true and she will love you too

The Ekepue wind came from the south
And whispered in my ear just what to say
Let only truth come from your mouth
And she will love you come what may

The Pu’upilo wind came from the east
And whispered in my ear just how to be
Be as generous to her as a luau feast
And she will love you endlessly

The Kilio’opu wind came from the west
And whispered in my ear just how to love
With Aloha love give her your very best
Then her true love you’ll be deserving of

You four winds blowing through Hawaiian skies
You all are knowing true love here in paradise
You have whispered on the wind just what to do
And now my true island love knows it too



Song Of Waimea Falls (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1785)

Throughout the darkened tropic night
Waimea falls sang a bubbly song
It sang a song of love’s delight
To the mountain made of stone

Waimea falls sang a bubbly tune
But the mountain never stirred
Only the yellow tropic moon
In the starry heavens heard

Waimea falls sang until the dawn
Its bubbly song would linger on
Until the sun shone from overhead
And the mountain awakened from the dead

Sunlight was shining through the mist
Even the dewdrops seemed to know
That the bubbly Waimea song had kissed
The mountain and the sun’s rainbow

Sunlight was shining through the mist
Even the dewdrops seemed to know
That the bubbly Waimea song had kissed
The mountain and the sun’s rainbow



Wind Of Love (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1786)

My love for her is whispered on the wind
On every island found, though far and wide
My love for her is whispered on the wind
And from my love she cannot hide

Oh, my true love will find me everywhere
When she strolls the island sand anywhere
Just look around and she will find me there
For my love will enfold her in the air

The shadow of my love is always in her sight
No matter whether it be day or night
My love for her is whispered on the wind
My love for her is just as soft as violins

My love for her is always here to stay
Whispered on the wind with such desire
Drawn upon the wind and clouds by day
And strong at night just like a burning fire

My love for her is always here to stay
Whispered on the wind with such desire
Drawn upon the wind and clouds by day
And strong at night just like a burning fire



Crying For My Love (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1787)

At night I could hear the breakers roar
Stars filled the sky as night unfurled
The tiki torches that lined the shore
Sparkled on the sea like diamonds pearled

Gleams of gold from the moon above
Painted lines of gold on the peaceful bay
The mirrored lights all spoke of love
Where the palm trees gently sway

So, why isn’t it enough to be
Here where beauty is so prized
My song should be of ecstasy
Beneath these skies of paradise

But, beauty, you are not enough
To stop me from crying for my love
Though young I am, I’m not so tough
To stop me from crying for my love

I have put off all my pride
For love has gone from me tonight
I stroll the sand unsatisfied
Through the beauty of the island light

It is I for whom the stars do shine
It is I for whom the torches burn
It is I for whom the moon does pine
While for my love my heart does yearn
For my love my heart does yearn



Mended Heart (Larry W. Jones 07/22/2003) (song#1788)

I tried to tell my broken heart
That I have closed its open door
For love from it did depart
When she said goodbye for evermore

But over the island one day there came
The tropic wind from off the bay
And it fanned at love like a dying flame
Until an island song began to play

My heart was warmed then by the sun
And love cried from deep inside of me
Oh, let me out, for I’m not done
And only love can set you free

Now I tell my mended heart
As I kneel on bended knee
That island love still has a heart
For her island love has set me free

My heart was warmed then by the sun
And love cried from deep inside of me
Oh, let me out, for I’m not done
And only love can set you free

Now I tell my mended heart
As I kneel on bended knee
That island love still has a heart
For her island love has set me free



Eyes Of Island Love (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1789)

When I see your eyes looking into mine
I see the love therein that makes them shine
Your eyes that reflect so very fine
That same love for you that I have in mine

Through the years our love is like the island breeze
Through laughter, tears and joyous range
Our love flows along with quiet ease
Steady as the mountains here that never change

And when you look, you know I feel
That no other love could I love so
And we both know that our love is real
Here on the isle where tradewinds blow

Through the years our love is like the island breeze
Through laughter, tears and joyous range
Our love flows along with quiet ease
Steady as the mountains here that never change

And when you look, you know I feel
That no other love could I love so
And we both know that our love is real
Here on the isle where tradewinds blow



Home In The Islands (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1790)

My home is in the islands
Where Mauna Kea tops them all
Where the valleys meet the lowlands
And rainbows kiss the waterfalls

I sailed away as a young man
Just going on year nineteen
Not looking back at island sand
Just searching for a dream

So, I sailed the oceans ramblin’
With money enough to spare
Til I failed at games of gamblin’
And found my pockets bare

I met a lot of wayward friends
Most of whom I have forgot
No longer can I now pretend
That dreams can still be bought

As for me, I’m still at sea
But soon I’ll be headed home
To the only place that’s left for me
To my island, never more to roam

My home is in the islands
Where Mauna Kea tops them all
Where the valleys meet the lowlands
And rainbows kiss the waterfalls

As for me, I’m still at sea
But soon I’ll be headed home
To the only place that’s left for me
To my island, never more to roam



Little Kalua Piggy (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1791)

There were three polynesian piggies
Two were fat and proud
As I got a little closer, the little piggy squealed out loud
Aloha ‘oe mama pig, pappa I’m going now
With that man who’s gonna take me to the luau
With that man who’s gonna take me to the luau

He showed his polynesian piggy parents
The Honolulu Times that he had read
About an invitation for all kalua pigs, and it was apparent
They would get a free ride to a grand pig pen and a real warm bed
And a pretty island gal to stick an apple in your snout
And a pretty island gal to stick an apple in your snout

If I live another lifetime, I’ll not forget the sight
When that little polynesian piggy squealed with delight

Aloha ‘oe mama pig, pappa I’m going now
With that man who’s gonna take me to the luau
With that man who’s gonna take me to the luau
I’ll get a free ride to a grand pig pen and a real warm bed
And a pretty island gal to stick an apple in my snout
And a pretty island gal to stick an apple in my snout



At Your Command (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1792)

The first time I ever held your hand
I felt the movement of the island sand
And the wonder of being your island man
My heart is at your command, my love
My heart is at your command

The first time I looked into your eyes
I saw the blue of island skies
I knew that I’d found paradise
True love was there with no disguise, my love
True love was there with no disguise

The tropic moon and the stars that shine
All say the same, that you are mine
There’s nothing else in the whole wide world
That can compare with you, my island girl

The first time I ever kissed your lips
My legs felt the movement of decks of ships
Just like the swaying of your hula hips
There’s nothing that your love could not eclipse, my love
There’s nothing that your love could not eclipse

The tropic moon and the stars that shine
All say the same, that you are mine
There’s nothing else in the whole wide world
That can compare with you, my island girl

The first time I ever held your hand
I felt the movement of the island sand
And the wonder of being your island man
My heart is at your command, my love
My heart is at your command



A Sailor’s Ballad (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1793)

They were strolling in the island sand
When she placed a ginger flower in his hand
A sailor, away from his island love was sailing soon
Tomorrow at the dawn he would sail with the tide
And the tears they could not hide
As she gave him a flower lei under the tropic moon

Hold me close, my love, and linger
For this is what I have to say
Whaling time has called your sailor’s name this June
So, for me please keep your heart a-burning
For soon I’ll be returning
And I’ll give you this flower lei under the tropic moon

When the full moon is on the rise
Here on the shores of paradise
The tradewinds will play our favorite tune
And home from the arctic grounds I’ll come
Once again I’ll be hearing island drums
And I’ll give you this flower lei under the tropic moon

With the crash of the mast in splinters
From the arctic gale that should only come in winters
The captain kneeled beside the sailor in the spray
Captain, I feel that I am dying
Tell my true love to not be crying
When you see her, here’s what you must say

When the full moon is on the rise
Here on the shores of paradise
The tradewinds will play our favorite tune
And home from the arctic grounds I’ll come
Once again I’ll be hearing island drums
And I’ll give you this flower lei under the tropic moon
I’ll give you this flower lei under the tropic moon



Hana Bay Maid (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1794)

The moon was bright that night on Hana bay
When I strolled the sand with my island maid
That was the night we fell in love
Under the stars that shined above

My sweet island maid where tradewinds blow
My sweet island maid, I love her so
I know I’ll never give away my heart
To any other girl from any other parts
One of these days I’ll return to Hana bay
And when I’m there, that’s where I’ll stay
We’ll stroll the sand there by the sea
My sweet island maid, my sweet island maid and me

My sweet island maid where tradewinds blow
My sweet island maid, I love her so
I know I’ll never give away my heart
To any other girl from any other parts
One of these days I’ll return to Hana bay
And when I’m there, that’s where I’ll stay
We’ll stroll the sand there by the sea
My sweet island maid, my sweet island maid and me



Island Luau Time (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1795)

I was sittin’ in Duke’s Canoe Club, sittin’ all alone
When I met this old island man, someone I’d never known

The sun had long gone down over the peaceful sea
When this old island man started to converse with me
And he told me what was on his mind
A full moon, true love and island luau time

He asked if I’d ever been down by the bay at luau time
He said the years had brought joys and heartaches
But he could still hear those Maui chimes
A few joys I remember well when I was in my prime
A full moon, true love and island luau time

He said a full moon had brought him love in old Lahaina town
And before she died, his true love never let him down
They were always down by the bay when it was luau time
He said, I had some joys when I was in my prime
A full moon, true love and island luau time

A full moon can bring you love on any island, any day
A true love is like a sweet flower lei here where breezes play
Then the old island man just strolled away
But to this day, I can’t get his words out of my mind
A full moon, true love and island luau time

The next day I sailed away from Honolulu bay
I remember his words that true love was like a flower lei
And the winds remind me of his joys while in his prime
A full moon, true love and island luau time

A full moon, true love and island luau time



Hawaiian Cowboy Moon (Larry W. Jones 07/23/2003) (song#1796)

When it’s twilight on the island and the full moon’s on the rise
Hawaiian cowboys hear those doggies bawling there in paradise
And the talk stories that they’re telling are island somgs at night
When it’s twilight on the island and the full moon’s on the rise

Campfires are burning under the full yellow tropic moon
Where Hawaiian cowboys and koa guitars sing an island tune
It’s a hard earned living, but ways Hawaiian cowboys don’t despise
When it’s twilight on the island and the full moon’s on the rise

Soon the longhorns will be sleepin’ and the cowboy songs all sung
And the talk stories they remember telling in their Hawaiian tongue
Til the tradewinds whisper that the day is past and gone
And the tropic sun will rise again come the island dawn

Campfires are burning under the full yellow tropic moon
Where Hawaiian cowboys and koa guitars sing an island tune
It’s a hard earned living, but ways Hawaiian cowboys don’t despise
When it’s twilight on the island and the full moon’s on the rise

When it’s twilight on the island and the full moon’s on the rise



Icebergs On The Sea Again (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2003) (song#1797)

The ocean slides under the hull slowly, Leilani
Icebergs are on the sea again
The midnight sun is rising low, Leilani
On the island with you is where I should have been

I know island guitars are playing softly, Leilani
But here the canvas sounds only bring dismay
Wind through the rigging is sad and low, Leilani
Not like the music you hear down by the bay

Even though I feel the snow and ice, Leilani
I know these arctic gales will soon be past
We’ll sing island songs together, Leilani
I’ll be done with my days before the mast

I know island guitars are playing softly, Leilani
But here the canvas sounds only bring dismay
Wind through the rigging is sad and low, Leilani
Not like the music you hear down by the bay

Even though I feel the snow and ice, Leilani
I know these arctic gales will soon be past
We’ll sing island songs together, Leilani
I’ll be done with my days before the mast

And you’ll be in my lovin’ arms at last



Fifty Days Fifty Nights (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2003) (song#1798)

Fifty days more, fifty nights more, ku’u ipo
Five seas and oceans away
Fifty days more, fifty nights more, my darling
To your island where you wait today

Through one sea, I’ll remember your laughter
Through one sea, I’ll whisper your name
One ocean, your beauty, and one for the shore
And through the last sea when I’ll hold you some more

Fifty days more, fifty nights more, ku’u ipo
Five seas and oceans apart
Fifty days more, fifty nights, of sailing
As each ocean brings me home to your heart

Through one sea, I’ll remember your laughter
Through one sea, I’ll whisper your name
One ocean, your beauty, and one for the shore
And through the last sea when I’ll hold you some more

Fifty days more, fifty nights more, ku’u ipo
Five seas and oceans apart
Fifty days more, fifty nights, of sailing
As each ocean brings me home to your heart

Fifty days more
Fifty nights, ku’u ipo



Paoakalani, Royal Perfume (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2003) (song#1799)

Paoakalani, royal perfume
Gentle is the breeze that brings your scent to me
Paoakalani, royal perfume
Sweet are my memories of you by the sea

From Pauoa Valley comes my dear island flower
To warm my heart like islands in bloom
To Iolani Palace fresh as an island shower
To me you are Paoakalani, royal perfume

There are so many lovely flowers
That fill the islands with bloom
But none there can ever compare
With my sweet Paoakalani, royal perfume

Her voice is that of an angel
Her face is so lovely indeed
Now, you breezes where soft tradewinds dwell
Bring me the love that I need
Bring me the sweetest flower that blooms
My dear Paoakalani, royal perfume

Ha`ina `ia mai ka puana la
Let the refrain be told
Of the fragrant Pauoa Valley flower
Of Paoakalani, royal perfume, my love



Eighteen Hundred (Larry W. Jones 07/24/2003) (song#1800)

Eighteen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Eighteen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Eighteen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun

If you ever ask me how long for you my love will be
Eighteen hundred lifetimes, then we would wait and see
If I could do it over, not a thing would I ever change
I could sing you island songs of love that I’ve arranged

If you ever ask me how deep for you my love will be
I can only tell you that my love is deeper than the sea
Eighteen hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

Eighteen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Eighteen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Eighteen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
Eighteen hundred songs and counting, up to number one
You’re my island sweetheart, our love has just begun
