Terrific In Old Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 03/18/2003)(song #1201)



Whenever I’m in old Lahaina town
Whether monsoon gales or fair wind sails
Breakers booming on the reef or quiet as a leaf
Whenever I’m here, I’ve reason to cheer…

I love old Lahaina in the ocean blue
Maui island is my home where love is true
I love old Lahaina when the tradewinds blow
I love old Lahaina town so much I crow

I love old Lahaina in the Pacific
I love that old town, to be specific
My love for old Lahaina town is prolific
Cause the girl I love lives there
And she’s terrific

I love old Lahaina in the Pacific
I love that old town, to be specific
My love for old Lahaina town is prolific
Cause the girl I love lives there
And she’s terrific



Aloha ‘ia (Larry W. Jones 03/22/2003) (song#1202)


Aloha ‘ia
Sounds the tradewind breeze
Aloha ‘ia
Resounds the waterfalls
Aloha ‘ia
The golden sunset seems to tease
As again I will hear as
Hawaii calls

Here the spring has sprung again
Birds of paradise are
On the wing again
Underneath the stars
They sing again
Island melodies that I recall

Aloha ‘ia
An island song that never ends
Aloha ‘ia
To me they will always belong
Aloha ‘ia, where love and friends
Forever will be strong
Aloha ‘ia will always belong
To you and me

Here the spring has sprung again
Birds of paradise are
On the wing again
Underneath the stars
They sing again
Island melodies that I recall

Aloha ‘ia, where love and friends
Forever will be strong
Aloha ‘ia will always belong
To you and me



In The Moonlit Island Night (Larry W. Jones 03/22/2003) (song#1203)

In the moonlit island night
I think about the love we knew
And before the dawn of light
My dream again belongs to you

In the moonlit island night
When the island lies in slumber
Words of love I still recite
From promises I can’t outnumber

Darling, is your love for me
The same as mine for you
Will you be my wife to be
Your name assign here too
Or will this moonlit island night
See this dream drift from my sight

Just as these velvet skies
Fade away when dawn arives
In the moonlit island night

Darling, is your love for me
The same as mine for you
Will you be my wife to be
Your name assign here too
Or will this moonlit island night
See this dream drift from my sight

Just as these velvet skies
Fade away when dawn arives
In the moonlit island night



It’s The Right Time (Larry W. Jones 03/22/2003) (song#1204)

Tonight is the right time and this is the right place
Music like Maui chimes and you to embrace
Tonight is the right time for your lovely face
Tonight is the right time for love

This is the right song, Hawaiian style
I can’t go wrong with your lovely smile
This is the right song to sing awhile
This is the right time for love

You must know how pleased I am we met
My heart has been eased by you too
The moon makes such a lovely silhouette
This is the right time to fall in love with you

It’s the right time with all the right scripts
It will be excite time when I kiss your lips
It’s the right time to be in Hawaii
It’s the right time for you and me



Future Dreams (Larry W. Jones 03/22/2003) (song#1205)


I’ve rested my future dreams on you
So, don’t make my dreams turn blue
Yes, I’ve tested my dreams on you
And you made all my dreams come true

I’ve rested my future dreams on you
So, don’t leave the island to roam
Yes, I’ve tested my dreams on you
So, don’t go away from our island home

By the way, I have some schemes for you
They’re future plans I want you to see
Down by the bay here in Hawaii blue
I want you to say your future dreams are of me

By the way, I have some schemes for you
They’re future plans I want you to see
Down by the bay here in Hawaii blue
I want you to say your future dreams are of me



You In My Arms (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1206)


I have you in my arms
I have you intensely in my dreams
So passionately that dreams are reality it seems
I have you in my arms
My heart just caved in to your charms
When you said Aloha with those polynesian eyes
I knew I was in for love in paradise
I have you in my arms

I’d pay any price, come what may
Just to hear you promise this very night
That you’d be mine forever and a day
So I wouldn’t just dream of holding you tight
I know I’ll dream, I’ll even scheme for your love to win
It’s not insanity, or vanity, so have no alarm
I’m just ready for our future to begin
Cause I have you in my arms

I’d pay any price, come what may
Just to hear you promise this very night
That you’d be mine forever and a day
So I wouldn’t just dream of holding you tight
I know I’ll dream, I’ll even scheme for your love to win
It’s not insanity, or vanity, so have no alarm
I’m just ready for our future to begin
Cause I have you in my arms



I Want To Be A Maui Boy (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1207)

I want to be a Maui boy
A Maui boy through and through
I want to be a Maui boy
Over there in Hawaii blue

I could learn to dance the hula
Play the ukulele and slack key guitar too
Over where the breakers curl, introduce me to a girl
Because I want to be a Maui boy too

I’m here on the mainland, but I’ll be gone to Maui
There I’ll be a Maui boy and make some wowie too

I want to be a Maui boy
A Maui boy through and through
I want to be a Maui boy
Over there in Hawaii blue

I could learn to dance the hula
Play the ukulele and slack key guitar too
Over where the breakers curl, introduce me to a girl
Because I want to be a Maui boy too



Let’s Fall In Love (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1208)


Well, we’re alone, here in this tropical zone
So, turn off the cell phone, let’s fall in love

There’s something so sweet about you, mystical
It all adds up, statistical, logistical, let’s fall in love

When King Kalakaua won Kapi`olani’s hand, it was his duty
To fall in love with the number one island beauty

Islands in the spring, bring one thing to think of
So, let’s be like paradise birds, let’s fall in love

If you would just go along, it wouldn’t be wrong
Let’s make it a beautiful song, let’s fall in love

When King Kalakaua won Kapi`olani’s hand, it was his duty
To fall in love with the number one island beauty

If you would just go along, it wouldn’t be wrong
Let’s make it a beautiful song, let’s fall in love
Let’s fall in love



Standing By You (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1209)


Standing by you
The dark clouds are fleeing
Rainbows are forming too
Cause I know you’re agreeing
With our love that’s so new
Standing here in front of me

What are these beams
That glows when you’re near me
Like the moonlight of dreams
Or the starlight to steer me
Love is expanding, demanding and new
When I’m standing by you

Standing by you, I’m overcome by the joy of
The girl and the boy of love
Standing by you, island songs sing of
Our dreams of love

Life used to be such a fright
I just wandered about in it
Until that unforgettable night
When you erased all the doubt in it
Here, forever in dreams come true, I’ll be
Standing by you



Island Honey (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1210)

I used to always fall
When islands call
In love with all
Those island wahinis
But now I know
I have to show
The love that flows
With the island breezes
Since my heart now understands
True love in island sands

Now I’m in love, with my turtledove
She’s not in it for the money
She’s the only girl I’m dreaming of
She’s my true love island honey

When I’m out and about, there’s no doubt
I act like all my days are sunny
When I ask her out, I want to shout
Cause she’s my true love island honey

Yes, she’s my true love island honey
She’s not like the other wahinis
When the islands call, I think of all that’s sunny
Love comes with ease on the tropic breeze
Cause she’s my true love island honey
Yes, she’s my true love island honey



My Heart’s Song (Larry W. Jones 02/23/2003) (song#1211)

Like the strum, strum, strum in my ear drum
Of the island guitars in the band
Like the boom, boom, boom of breakers flume
As the waves break on the sand

Like the song, song, song of the song birds
On wings through paradise as they go
So the song within my heart is the sweetest heard
You’re the one that I love so

Underneath the moon with you in June
You always steal the show
My heart’s tune, I know will soon
Tell the world I love you so

Twilight and night or rays of day, there’s an afterglow
My heart’s song lasts all day long, that I know
In the island sand, like an island band
My heart’s song says I love you so

Underneath the moon with you in June
You always steal the show
My heart’s tune, I know will soon
Tell the world I love you so

Twilight and night or rays of day, there’s an afterglow
My heart’s song lasts all day long, that I know
In the island sand, like an island band
My heart’s song says I love you so



Hunkered Down (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1212)



Well, the bombs are raining down just like they said
I guess the world will frown unless they’re dead
I found a peaceful place to bunker down
I’m hunkered down in old Lahaina town

What ever happened to peace and love
Who will answer to God above
The world is mad with a warlike sound
I’m hunkered down in old Lahaina town

Peace and love is the only cure
But the nations haven’t learned it, that’s for sure
Who will be next in the burial mound
I’m hunkered down in old Lahaina town

God has a peaceful purpose for this earth
His kingdom will remove all the tears and hurt
The nations won’t see it coming til it’s too late
But you don’t have to be a part of its fate

Until then I’ll seperate
Myself from the conflicts and the hate
Some day soon the dove of peace will settle down
On a cleansed earth where peace will abound
And I won’t have to bunker down
Like I’m hunkered down in old Lahaina town



Leinora (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1213)



I met a girl named Leinora in a small island town
Ever since I met her, I’ve been acting like a clown
I bought her ice cream and things
And I might buy her a ring and a wedding gown

She lives in a small town by the sea
Her name is Leinora Lokelani Kalikanakemalani
But I just call her Leinora
And Leinora knows that I adore her

Leinora knows it’s her that I pursue
She knows how to use sweet kisses too
The next thing I lose won’t be my heart
Cause I lost it to Leinora from the start

She lives in a small town by the sea
Her name is Leinora Lokelani Kalikanakemalani
But I just call her Leinora
And Leinora knows that I adore her

Leinora knows it’s her that I pursue
She knows how to use sweet kisses too
The next thing I lose won’t be my heart
Cause I lost it to Leinora from the start
I lost my heart to Leinora



Under The Moon In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1214)



It’s unusual, dear, when you’re near
That suddenly it would appear
That stars shoot across the sky
And the moon gets in my eye
Even when you’re out of my sight
My arms still hold you tight
And I’m sure that you know why
I love you like the stars love the sky

Why I love you is no mystery
Lonely nights are now history
Like islands love the sea and shore
It’s your love for me that I adore
So, let me tell you what you mean to me
You mean the future is what’s meant to be
We’ll make the stars shoot across the sky
When we’re under the moon in paradise

Even when you’re out of my sight
My arms still hold you tight
And I’m sure that you know why
I love you like the stars love the sky
So, let me tell you what you mean to me
You mean the future is what’s meant to be
We’ll make the stars shoot across the sky
When we’re under the moon in paradise



Island Love Is True (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1215)


Island love I give from me to you
Love true, love true
Love like ours never will be through
Love true, love true

For island love lasts eternally
Island love is true
Our love is not just externally
Island love is true

Love true, love true
Island love is true and kind
Island love isn’t blind
Island love is true

Island love I give from me to you
Love true, love true
Love like ours never will be through
Love true, love true

For island love lasts eternally
Island love is true
Our love is not just externally
Island love is true

Island love I give from me to you
Our island love is true



The Perfect Wave (Larry W. Jones 03/23/2003) (song#1216)


The sun shimmered brightly on the sea
As if it knew my destiny
The waves were steady, smooth and clean
The best surfing waves I had ever seen

I knew it was beautiful before I went
I paddled my board into waves that were heaven sent
I thought there were other surfers just as brave
But it was only pelicans bobbing in the waves

A set rolled in that was a beautiful sight
Shining through the wave was a shimmering light
It seemed like forever that it would last
It looked like a lamp shining through polished glass

I turned my board and headed toward the shore
The stained glass beauty started my heart to soar
I hung ten off the nose for all to see
But it was just me and the pelicans bobbing peacefully

I still go there almost every day
I wax my board and watch the foaming spray
I look for the sun through the waves of the sea
Searching for the perfect wave endlessly

I still go there almost every day
I wax my board and watch the foaming spray
I look for the sun through the waves of the sea
Searching for the perfect wave endlessly



My Heart’s Still There (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1217)


My heart’s still there, in old Hawaii
Far away at sea, Hawaii calls to me

My heart’s still there, where the tropic air
Blows from the seas, a balmy breeze
The sun and moon sings a lovely tune
In old Hawaii

My heart’s still there, in old Hawaii
Far away at sea, Hawaii calls to me

When I return, one thing I’ve learned
Never more must Hawaii call to me
For I’ll be there where my heart meets the sea
In old Hawaii



Brokenhearted Island Bay (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1218)


I’m gonna steal away
Steal away to brokenhearted bay
I’m gonna steal away
To that brokenhearted island bay

My love said she would always be
True to my heart and me
But now I see it wasn’t meant to be
Now blue is my heart you see

I’m gonna steal away
Steal away to brokenhearted bay
I’m gonna steal away
To that brokenhearted island bay

There’s no one to treat me, no one to beat me
Until I’m black and blue
There’s no one to greet me, no one to meet me
Cause my heart’s through with you

I’ll be there for a long, long time
Until the day that I can find
A brand new love who will always be
True to my heart and me

I’m gonna steal away
Steal away to brokenhearted bay
I’m gonna steal away
To that brokenhearted island bay
To that brokenhearted island bay

The Same Old Line (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1219)

Nothing’s missing in your kissing
And I know that you said you’re mine
I hope I’m not falling for the same old line

I know I shouldn’t doubt your promises
But I’m like that doubting Thomas is
I hope I’m not falling for the same old line

That same old line that I once fell for
Or was it twice or three or more
That same old line from days of yore
That left my heart stranded on love’s shore

The fog is lifting off the bay
Is this the beginning of a brand new day
I hope I’m not falling for the same old line

That same old line that I once fell for
Or was it twice or three or more
My heart couldn’t take it if your heart’s not mine
I hope I’m not falling for the same old line
Hope I’m not falling for the same old line



Under The Island Moon (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1220)


If you’re wild about a hula girl
Beguiled with insides in a whirl
Just can’t stay away
Stroll with her by the bay
Then bring her love with an island tune

But don’t propose just any time
Under stars above is where you’ll find
The right time if the month is June
It’s always better in the summertime
Under the island moon

Just find you an outrigger canoe
Not one bigger than made for two
She’ll love you with a love that’s true
Nothing’s wrong when all is right
The yellow moon is full tonight

The stars above are big and bright
She’ll be falling in love with you soon
Under the island moon
She’ll be falling in love with you soon
Under the island moon

But don’t propose just any time
Under stars above is where you’ll find
The right time if the month is June
It’s always better in the summertime
Under the island moon



Best Thing Under The Sun (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1221)


I’ll take a chance
When romance comes along
I know it will fit me to a tee,
That island love
Some wise sage said don’t engage too strong
But wise old sages don’t know the wages of love

When the sun has set,
I’ll just bet it’s fun
I know I’ll get deep in debt
Before the race is won
But that’s the price you pay when you can’t delay what’s done
I’ve fallen in love and that’s the best thing under the sun

The islands are made for love
That’s what I’ve been told
So, I’m doing my part thereof
I’m taking a chance on love

When the sun has set,
I’ll just bet it’s fun
I know I’ll get deep in debt
Before the race is won
But that’s the price you pay when you can’t delay what’s done
I’ve fallen in love and that’s the best thing under the sun
Love is the best thing under the sun



So Gentle To Know (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1222)


You would be so gentle to know
So gentle like the breezes that blow
So priceless beyond compare
So gentle for me to love with care

And we would be so good together as one
That it’s sad our love has never begun
I wish you’d see yourself in my dreams
Since you would be, oh, so gentle to know

You would be so gentle to know
So gentle like the breezes that blow
So priceless beyond compare
So gentle for me to love with care

We would be so good together as one
That it’s sad our love has never begun
I wish you’d see yourself in my dreams
Since you would be, oh, so gentle to know

So gentle to know
Gentle to know



So Sweet To Love (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1223)


You would be so sweet to say Aloha to
You would be so sweet to dream of
While the tradewinds whispered through the trees
I would be pleased to have you to love

When the moon is on the silver sea
When the sun paints rainbows above
You would be so sweet here in paradise
You would be so sweet to love

You would be so sweet to say Aloha to
You would be so sweet to dream of
While the tradewinds whispered through the trees
I would be pleased to have you to love

When the moon is on the silver sea
When the sun paints rainbows above
You would be so sweet here in paradise
You would be so sweet, so sweet to love



I’m Reminded (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1224)


I’m reminded of sweet tuberoses in the springtime
I’m reminded of how rosemary goes with thyme
I’m reminded of soft tradewinds from over the sea
And you remind me of how paradise was meant to be

I’m reminded of the harvest moon in September
I’m reminded of how a flame comes from embers
I’m reminded of how nice your island love came to me
And you remind me of how paradise was meant to be

The world before you was empty and blue
I remember the day I met you
I’m reminded each day to be true
Cause I remind myself how much I love you

I’m reminded of the harvest moon in September
I’m reminded of how a flame comes from embers
I’m reminded of how nice your island love came to me
And you remind me of how paradise was meant to be



I Mean You And Me (Larry W. Jones 03/24/2003) (song#1225)


All my dreams were painted blue
My future plans were that way too
But then an island love came through
When I said Aloha to you

It’s a mystery so unclear
How you just happened to appear
But now it’s his’try since you’re near
Those dreams that were painted blue

You’re everything I used to dream of
Bluebirds sing so supremely of love
I hope you realize what you mean to me
What I mean is, I mean you and me

Now all my dreams are doing well
Since I’m under your tropic spell
It’s an island of love, one from above
Since I bid those blue dreams farewell

You’re everything I used to dream of
Bluebirds sing so supremely of love
I hope you realize what you mean to me
What I mean is, I mean you and me
I mean you and me



Lovely Jewel Of The Islands (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1226)


Lovely jewel of the islands
Precious as diamonds that shine above
You fuel the torch that burns
Within my heart filled with your love

Like the sweetest lei garland so prized
Fragrant flowers assembled with care
Lovely jewel of paradise
You are the answer to my prayer

Never must you go away
Such days would never do
Forever must our love here stay
Forever will I be loving you

Lovely jewel of the islands
Lovely island love song
Lovely jewel of the islands
My heart to you will ‘ere belong



What Happened To Me (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1227)


The glossy ads will enrapture you
Your heart will be captured too
That’s what happened to me

The island sand got in my shoes
The tropic stars got in my eyes
The tradewinds whispered too
And you captured my heart in paradise

The islands in spring will sing to you
The moon in June will beam there too
That’s what happened to me

The stars came out so bright at night
The peaceful bay was there to entice
I heard you say a kiss was alright
And you captured my heart in paradise

The glossy ads will enrapture you
Your heart will be captured too
You may fall in love by the silvery sea
That’s what happened to me
That’s what happened to me



Into You (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1228)


I always wondered who
Would make my dreams come true
I wondered and wandered
And it’s a wonder that I wandered
Into you

I once was so sad
I thought loneliness was the fad
But now I can add that I’m certainly glad
That for a certainty, I wandered
Into you

I wondered if you knew
How blue my dreams were too
I had all my bridges burned
But then my dreams all turned
Into you

I once was so sad
I thought loneliness was the fad
But now I can add that I’m certainly glad
That for a certainty, I wandered
Into you



It’s Back In Lahaina (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1229)


It’s back in Lahaina, a little island town
I met her in a cafe, she was tall and brown
Her lips were soft as roses, sweet as wine
Somebody’s heart’s now broken, it surely must be mine

It’s back in Lahaina, she was a dream so nice
Now I know I left my heart when I sailed from paradise
I left my heart when I left that girl so tall and brown
It’s back in Lahaina, a little island town

My heart is in Lahaina, I left it there, I know
My sweetheart’s in Lahaina, where tradewinds softly blow

It’s back in Lahaina, a little island town
I met her in a cafe, she was tall and brown
Her lips were soft as roses, sweet as wine
Somebody’s heart’s now broken, it surely must be mine

It’s back in Lahaina, she was a dream so nice
Now I know I left my heart when I sailed from paradise
I left my heart when I left that girl so tall and brown
It’s back in Lahaina, a little island town



When I Glanced At You (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1230)


It happened when I glanced at you
I must have looked like I was in a trance to you
The heavens opened and a dream came true
It happened when I glanced at you

Tradewinds were blowing and it felt so fine
I took a chance to see if you’d be mine
When we danced it felt like too much wine
It happened when I glanced at you

I’ve been to dances where romances come and go
But with one glance I knew I’d take it slow
Those Maui chimes sure came in handy too
It happened when I glanced at you

Cheek to cheek with you was oh so nice
I fell in love without even thinking twice
I think about that night and dance with you
It happened when I glanced at you

I’ve been to dances where romances come and go
But with one glance I knew I’d take it slow
Those Maui chimes sure came in handy too
It happened when I glanced at you
It happened when I glanced at you



Let’s Do That Stroll Again (Larry W. Jones 03/25/2003) (song#1231)


Let’s stroll again, hand in hand
Hold my hand, in the sand, in paradise
Let’s do that stroll again
Do you remember Waikiki
Let’s do it like we did back then
Let’s do that stroll again

It was in Waikiki where dreams came true
It was lovely you, not just the sand
Let’s do that stroll again
Do you remember dancing to that island band
Let’s do it like we did back then
Let’s do that stroll again

It was in Waikiki where dreams came true
It was lovely you, not just the sand
Let’s do that stroll again
Do you remember dancing to that island band
Let’s do it like we did back then
Let’s do that stroll again

Let’s do it like we did back then
Let’s do that stroll again



It Was So Easy (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1232)


That lovely day, and lovely you down by the bay
What can I say, I’m glad we met
I remember it was so easy
So easy that I can’t remember to forget

It was just a chance meeting, an Aloha greeting
A fleeting romance when the sun had set
I remember it was so easy
So easy that I can’t remember to forget

You looked lovely in the breeze, smiled with ease
Your hand I squeezed so gently, and yet
I remember it was so easy
So easy that I can’t remember to forget

I went away but my heart stayed with you
I dream about how easily we met
I remember it was so easy
So easy that I can’t remember to forget

It was just a chance meeting, an Aloha greeting
A fleeting romance when the sun had set
I remember it was so easy
So easy that I can’t remember to forget



It Really Is A Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1233)


It’s a paradise
When the sun is high in tropic skies
It really is a paradise

It’s a paradise
When dreams come true before your eyes
It really is a paradise

When I hold you in my arms
And I come to know your many charms
And my heart you so entice
It’s a paradise
It really is a paradise

I’ve never felt this way before
It’s a paradise
We go together like the tide and island shore
It really is a paradise

And remember, remember when you smiled at me
Birds of paradise flew by
The yellow moon was on the sea
Ours will be the love that never dies
It’s a paradise
It really is a paradise

It really is a paradise



My Heart’s Flyin’ For You (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1234)

Birds of paradise are flyin’, in the blue they’re flyin’
They’re flyin’ because of me and you
When I met you, I know my heart went flyin’
I’ll show you the ring I bought to prove it’s true

I used to rumble-o, I wasn’t humble-o
But then I stumbled over you
I met my match, it seems, you clipped my wings
But my heart’s flyin’ for you

Yes, birds of paradise are flyin’
Right through the blue they’re flyin’
I know my heart went flyin’ for you
I can only guess, it was your caress
Birds of paradise seem to love you too
I know my heart went flyin’ for you

I used to rumble-o, I wasn’t humble-o
But then I stumbled over you
I met my match, it seems, you clipped my wings
But my heart’s flyin’ for you

I met my match, it seems, you clipped my wings
But my heart’s flyin’ for you



Pretty Island Thing (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1235)

She’s got my heart on a string, pretty island thing
This isn’t just a fling, oh no
I’m in love, you know

I’ve got a ring in my nose, even though it doesn’t show
She’s got my heart on a string, pretty island thing
I’m in love, you know

Love sure is grand, here in this island sand
I’ll be the king, she’ll be my queen, pretty island thing

She’s got my heart on a string, pretty island thing
This isn’t just a fling, oh no
I’m in love, you know

Love sure is grand, here in this island sand
I’ll be the king, she’ll be my queen, pretty island thing

Well, I guess I’ll be the king
She will be my island queen, pretty island thing
I’ll even let her hold the string
To my heart and my nose, I guess it shows
I’m in love, you know



The Way She Looks (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1236)


I like the way she looks
Soft as a night in June
I like the way she cooks
And sings those island tunes

Her flower leis, her island ways
Her smiles, her styles
I could go on for miles
But I would run out of days

I was a happy man even before we met
But paradise hadn’t found me yet
I don’t want to be single, no need to intermingle
I like the way she cooks
Paradise isn’t just in books
I like the way she looks

Her flower leis, her island ways
Her smiles, her styles
I could go on for miles
But I would run out of days

Paradise isn’t just in books
I like the way she looks



I’m No Longer Alone (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1237)


My eyes are full of stars, but it doesn’t hurt
I said my heart would never be captured
But it wasn’t on the alert
If the truth were known, it was this tropic zone
Because of you my heart was enraptured
I’m no longer alone

I’ve been on many shores, but yours I had missed
I’ve said Aloha before, but they were meaningless
Dreams back then never came true
All they did was cause pain and hurt
That was before my heart met you
I’m glad it wasn’t on the alert

Dreams back then never came true
They were all blue
My heart never expected this
It was alerted by your kiss
If the truth were known, it was this tropic zone
I’m no longer alone

Dreams back then never came true
They were all blue
My heart never expected this
It was alerted by your kiss
If the truth were known, it was this tropic zone
I’m no longer alone



Island Rose, My Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 03/26/2003) (song#1238)


Island rose, island rose
Rose of mine, like sweetest wine
I’ll love you here where the tradewind blows
Island rose, my island rose

Time will go by here in this paradise
But we’ll never sigh as island love grows
Flowers will bloom, there’ll never be gloom
Island rose, my island rose

Island rose, island rose
Rose of mine, like sweetest wine
I’ll love you here where the tradewind blows
Island rose, my island rose

Hand in hand, we’ll stroll the sand
Underneath the tropic moon that glows
And as we planned, Aloha love will command
Island rose, my island rose

Island rose, island rose
Rose of mine, like sweetest wine
I’ll love you here where the tradewind blows
Island rose, my island rose

I’ll love you here where the tradewind blows
Island rose, my island rose



Like Island Tuberoses (Larry W. Jones 03/28/2003) (song#1239)


I sent her a box of chocolates
Thought it would tell her that I care
But I guess sometimes she forgets
Chocolates weren’t the answer to my prayer

What could I send her that discloses
That my love for her was meant to be
So, I sent eighteen tuberoses
And now her heart belongs to me

Island tuberoses, Mahalo tuberoses
Those island tuberoses were the thing
Island tuberoses, Mahalo tuberoses
Island love is in full swing
Thank those eighteen tuberoses for her love

Eighteen tuberoses, sweetest island rose
Eighteen tuberoses, island love you bring
Aloha to our new found love that grows
Like island tuberoses, island rose of spring

Aloha to our new found love that grows
Like island tuberoses, island rose of spring



But I Can Say (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2003) (song#1240)


A flower lei someone gave, but not from me
Island elders say, beware of those who lie
A flower lei might not mean true love, you see
But I can say, my love will never say goodbye

A flower lei someone gave, to make you swoon
Island elders say, beware of the tropic moon
He says he loves you, but, darling, I know he lies
But I can say, my love for you is true in paradise

You said you loved me, and I know you do
A flower lei someone gave, but don’t be fooled
Island elders say, beware of the tropic moon
But I can say, I’ll always love and care for you

You said you loved me, and I know you do
A flower lei someone gave, but don’t be fooled
Island elders say, beware of the tropic moon
But I can say, I’ll always love and care for you



Love In Repose (Larry W. Jones 03/29/2003) (song#1241)

Your smile was one from an angel’s face
A style that even time could not erase
A glance, a dance and a tropical fling
My heart, for you will forever sing

But love on the isle was only for awhile
Through tears inside, I still see your smile
A glance, a dance and a tropical fling
My heart, for you will be forever crying

Your smile was one from an angel’s face
A style that even time could not erase
My love for you will always be in repose
On the breeze where the tradewind blows

Your smile was one from an angel’s face
A style that even time could not erase
My love for you will always be in repose
On the breeze where the tradewind blows

My love for you will always be in repose
On the breeze where the tradewind blows



Songbirds Of Waimea (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1242)


Sweet are the voices of the songbirds of Waimea
Na leo nahenahe o na manu mele ‘o Waimea
They are the choicest songs the islands can convey
Sweet are the voices of the songbirds of Waimea

Have you heard their songs of joy
Sweet are the sounds that they employ
Listen as they sing their songs down by the bay
Sweet are the voices of the songbirds of Waimea

Na leo nahenahe o na manu mele ‘o Waimea
Sweet to the ear are their island songs
A treat when you hear them all day long
Sweet are the voices of the songbirds of Waimea

Listen as they sing their songs down by the bay
They are the choicest songs the islands can convey
Na leo nahenahe o na manu mele ‘o Waimea
Sweet are the voices of the songbirds of Waimea



Cindy’s Slack Key Guitar (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1243)


When the slack key lady takes the stage
Her guitar strings are sweet with island sounds
When the slack key lady takes the stage
Listen as Cindy Combs plays in Hanapepe town

When the slack key lady takes the floor
She spreads Aloha on tradewinds to the world
There on Kauai they always beg for more
When the slack key lady takes the floor

She’s the slack key lady of the endless summer
She’s the Hawaiian slack key guitar strummer
Listen as Cindy Combs plays in Hanapepe town
Her guitar strings are sweet with island sounds

The slack key lady is Cindy Combs, and Hanapepe is her home
When the slack key lady takes the stage, it’s the sweetest music page

Cindy Combs is a winner, certainly she’s no beginner
Hanapepe is her home, the tropics is her zone
There on Kauai they always beg for more
When the slack key lady takes the floor



Aloha From Your Heart (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1244)


I love you, I need you, there’s nothing else to say
But there’s another way to say I love you
Aloha is the word where palm trees gently sway
All that I can say is Aloha, I love you

There are many things I want to say, in my head
But there’s only one thing worth saying from my heart
I want to tell you many things, but instead
I’ll just say Aloha because I’ve loved you from the start

There’s another way to say I love you
I’ll just say Aloha from my heart

There are many things I want to say, in my head
But there’s only one thing worth saying from my heart
I want to tell you many things, but instead
I’ll just say Aloha because I’ve loved you from the start

I love you, I need you, there’s nothing else to say
I love you, and my heart yearns for the day
When I can hear you say Aloha
I love you, Aloha, from your heart



Beyond My Empty Arms (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1245)


Dreams that drift far out to sea
Island love that wasn’t meant to be
Blue skies that turned too dark to see
Songs of love sung halfheartedly

Tradewinds blew you far from me
And took away your island charms
Just beyond the reef, to an empty sea
And beyond my empty arms

When the sun goes down I stroll the place
On the shore where we were one
And in dreams I see your smiling face
Every night when day is done

I hear whispers on the island breeze
Your love has gone to where the breakers form
Just beyond the reef, to an empty sea
And beyond my empty arms

Those dreams that drifted out to sea
Will always break my heart
It seems that love wasn’t meant to be
Just a sad mistake from the start

Tradewinds blew you far from me
And took away your island charms
Just beyond the reef, to an empty sea
And beyond my empty arms



Island Child Of Mine (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1246)


Songbirds am a singin’
On da island mighty fine
Dreams, de are a wingin’
Soft as de Maui chimes
Now sleep, island child of mine

De sandman comes a-sayin’
Island child it’s time
For your prayers to be a-prayin’
And you can make dem words all rhyme
Now sleep, island child of mine

De moon am a-shinin’ up above
From de heavens with island love
Aloha is de word you must think of
Now dream dem dreams on island time
Now sleep, island child of mine

You is a fine island child
For you is mine island child
Close dem eyes and dream
Of songs with island themes
Don’t let nobody worry you
Aloha love is mighty true
Now sleep your very best
On island mammy’s chest
Island child it’s time
Now sleep, island child of mine



This Girl From Paradise (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1247)


Tradewinds whispered a new love song
She was known throughout the isles
So I let my heart just listen
To the tradewinds for awhile

And then I heard her song again, so nice
This girl from paradise…

Playing my heartstrings slowly
Saying the words I loved to hear
Bringing me dreams with island songs
Bringing me dreams with songs
Tradewinds whispered a new love song
Bringing me dreams with island songs

I knew this dream was just a dream
It came with the breeze, tradewind schemes
The songs were only in my mind
Songs of island love I would never find

And then I heard her song again, so nice
This girl from paradise…

Playing my heartstrings slowly
Saying the words I loved to hear
Bringing me dreams with island songs
Bringing me dreams with songs
Tradewinds whispered a new love song
Bringing me dreams with island songs

Love was on the tradewind air
I listened to her there
Then the songs disappeared into thin air
And left my heart without repair

I still hear songs of island love so nice
This girl from paradise…

Playing my heartstrings slowly
Saying the words I loved to hear
Bringing me dreams with island songs
Bringing me dreams with songs
Tradewinds whispered a new love song
Bringing me dreams with island songs



On A Tropical, Rainy Day (Larry W. Jones 03/30/2003) (song#1248)


May a rainbow be always in your sky
On a tropical, rainy day
And if your baby’s blue in paradise
May a rainbow come her way

Through the island monsoon rain
Comes a rainbow, you can bet
Just sing to her a new refrain
A rainbow will brighten up your pet

May a rainbow be always in your sky
On a tropical, rainy day

May a rainbow be always in your sky
On a tropical, rainy day
And if your baby’s blue in paradise
May a rainbow come her way

Through the island monsoon rain
Comes a rainbow, you can bet
Just sing to her a new refrain
A rainbow will brighten up your pet

May a rainbow be always in your sky
On a tropical, rainy day
On a tropical, rainy day
On a tropical, rainy day



My Love For You (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1249)


Times change and people change
But there’s one thing I’ve arranged
Times change and people change
But my love for you will be the same

Dreams may change, or turn out strange
But like the love of island’s flame
There’s one thing that I’ve arranged
My love for you will be the same

Aloha may mean hello, or mean goodbye
But it still means love, just the same
So, when I’m away, dear, don’t you cry
My love for you will be the same

Aloha may mean hello, or mean goodbye
But it still means love, just the same
So, when I’m away, dear, don’t you cry
My love for you will be the same

So, when I’m away, dear, don’t you cry
My love for you will be the same



Is Hawaii Blue (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1250)


Is Hawaii blue
Well, I am too
Yes, I am too
Even dreams are crying tears, it’s true

Is Hawaii blue
Do dreams come true
Oh, how can dreams come true
When she doesn’t love you too

She slipped away as slow as island time
How I hope and pray that someday she’ll be mine again

Was I a fool
She played it so cool
The game of love
Blue dreams are now what I have a lot of

Is Hawaii blue
Do dreams come true
Oh, how can dreams come true
When she doesn’t love you too

Is Hawaii blue
Is Hawaii blue
Well, I am too



Here In Your Island Home (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1251)


The bird of paradise, for you still flies
Here in your island home
It still sings those songs that you so prize
Here in your island home

You may sail the seas, but love you’ll find
Is here in your island home
Go where you please, but you’ll be, in time
Back here in your island home

You can go to the mainland to the east
Other islands to the west
But in time you’ll miss the feast
Of island love that you know best

You may search for happiness
From the tropics to the arctic zone
But where you know that you’ll be blessed
Is here in your island home

You may sail the seas, but love you’ll find
Is here in your island home
Go where you please, but you’ll be, in time
Back here in your island home

Go where you please, but you’ll be, in time
Back here in your island home



Slack Key Guitar Blues (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1252)


Come along with me in the ocean stream
For some music heartfelt and true
It’s a place that’s not just a dream
Maui island slack key guitar blues

Kiho’alu is played softly on the strings
Music from the heart that the island brings
Sing along with them if you choose
Maui island slack key guitar blues

Maui island is the place
For music that you can’t replace
Kick back and kick off your shoes
Maui island slack key guitar blues

Maui is the valley isle, so nice
Music from paradise
Island soul music that you can’t refuse
Maui island slack key guitar blues

Kiho’alu is played softly on the strings
Music from the heart that the island brings
Sing along with them if you choose
Maui island slack key guitar blues

Sing along with them if you choose
Maui island slack key guitar blues



Goodbye To Island Blues (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1253)


I’ll admit I was surprised
I could have danced a mile
It was when I saw you smile
At me, in this island paradise

Say Aloha to island blues
That means goodbye as well as hello, too
Say goodbye to island blues
Say Aloha, hello to happiness and you

Aloha, you island blues
Goodbye from me to you
I found a love I know is true
Aloha, goodbye to island blues

Say Aloha to island blues
That means goodbye as well as hello, too
Say goodbye to island blues
Say Aloha, hello to happiness and you

Aloha, you island blues
Goodbye from me to you
I found a love I know is true
Aloha, goodbye to island blues

I found a love I know is true
Aloha, goodbye to island blues



My Hawaiian Island Rose (03/31/2003) (song#1254)


The island bees aren’t very pleased
When we go strolling, you and I
It’s just jealousy, those island bees
You’re the sweetest thing in paradise

When we’re strolling by, tradewinds sigh
And in the skies, the rainbow knows
It’s painted there for lover’s eyes
My Hawaiian island rose

I don’t need sugar cane or candy cane
I just need your sweet love
Your sweet love where the tradewind blows
My Hawaiian island rose

When I kiss your lips, it’s chocolate chips
Soft and sweet as the breeze that blows
There’s nothing sweet that could eclipse
My Hawaiian island rose

When I kiss your lips, it’s chocolate chips
Soft and sweet as the breeze that blows
There’s nothing sweet that could eclipse
My Hawaiian island rose
My Hawaiian island rose



Just My Thoughts Of You (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1255)


The yellow tropic moon is so exciting
But there’s something that’s even more delighting
It’s the thoughts that I think of you
Just my thoughts of you

I like it when we’re conversating
Talk of love’s not dissipating
And my heart is participating in…
Just my thoughts of you

I really go for your charms
When I hold you in my arms
Here in Hawaii blue
You make all my dreams come true

The yellow tropic moon’s enchanting
I hope that in your heart it’s planting
Just my thoughts of you
Just my thoughts of you

The yellow tropic moon’s enchanting
I hope that in your heart it’s planting
Just my thoughts of you
Just my thoughts of you



One And Only, Me And You (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1256)


One of these days you won’t need money
You’ll be off the isle but you’ll be lonely
One of these days you’ll miss your honey
You’re gonna miss your one and only me

Some sweet day you’ll have bitter mem’ries
You’ll remember but you’ll be lonely
Some sweet day you’ll be crying for me
You’re gonna miss your one and only me

One of these days you’ll want hugs and kisses
And you’ll discover what empty arms misses
You’re gonna miss your island in the sea
You’re gonna miss your one and only me

One of these days I’ll still be grieving
Just like the day I did at your leaving
You’re gonna miss me, I know it’s true
I’m gonna miss my one and only you

You’re gonna miss your one and only me
I’m gonna wish you were here with me
You’re gonna miss me, I know it’s true
I’m gonna miss my one and only you



Down To Duke’s Canoe Club (03/31/2003) (song#1257)


On Waikiki beach there’s a pub where tradewinds blow
A place where the duke still dwells
Down to Duke’s Canoe Club we will go
Where island songs still cast a spell

We will sing to those assembled
Raise our voices from on high
We will drink til we’ve resembled
The color of the evening sky

We’ll play those sweet Maui chimes
And try to make a few words rhyme
Down to Duke’s Canoe Club we will go
And when we’re done we’ll feel the woe

There’s songs to sing til light of day
Then we’ll all be on our way
But when the sun sets, this you know
Down to Duke’s Canoe Club we will go

There’s songs to sing til light of day
Then we’ll all be on our way
But when the sun sets, this you know
Down to Duke’s Canoe Club we will go



Ceiling Hula (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1258)

Last night sure was funny
The island looked real sunny
You might think I’m delirious
But brother, I am serious

As I lay in my bed
I couldn’t help from feeling
That my love was dancing in my head
Then she was dancing on the ceiling

I covered up my face
Took a few deep breaths of air
My heart picked up it’s pace
Cause she was still dancing there

She does the hula in my head
She does the hula above my bed
I’ve got to get some sleep sometime
But I can’t get her off my mind

I tried to close my eyes and dream
But I must have opened one, it seems
Cause I got that funny feeling
My love was doing the hula on the ceiling

Well, I don’t get any rest
But I don’t care cause she’s the best
My love sure is appealing
Doing the hula on the ceiling

My love sure is appealing
Doing the hula on the ceiling



The Girl In My Arms (03/31/2003) (song#1259)


The island dance was all romance
And the music sure was fine
But I’m afraid I was in a trance
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine

I was dancing with a break in my heart
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine
I had to fake it from the start
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine

My love was dancing with another
And my heart was breaking more in time
This girl thought she was dancing with her brother
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine

I was dancing with a break in my heart
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine
I had to fake it from the start
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine

My love was dancing with another
And my heart was breaking more in time
This girl thought she was dancing with her brother
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine

I was dancing with a break in my heart
I had to fake it from the start
Cause the girl in my arms wasn’t mine
The girl in my arms wasn’t mine
The girl in my arms wasn’t mine



Recently (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1260)


Recently
I’ve noticed there are more tropic stars
Sweeter music from island guitars
Since I’m in love

At other times
The things I do aren’t quite clear
Like the times
Whenever you’re near

Recently
I stroll the sand and I sing
My heart now has wings
Since I’m in love

Whenever I gaze at you
I amaze myself too
I praise love that’s true
Since I’m in love

I stroll the sand and I sing
My heart now has wings

Whenever I gaze at you
I amaze myself too
I praise love that’s true
Since I’m in love, with you



Moana Maile (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1261)


Listen while a sailor tells you a tale
Of an island girl that many a whaler knows
It’s a story of true island love and a sail
That sailors tell when the full moon glows

Underneath the palm trees on the shore
Weeping by herself down by the bay
She awaits the sailor boy whom she adores
And she remembers words he had to say

Will your love for me be always true
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile
I’ll return when whaling days are through
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile

A pledge from her heart, to him she gave
To wait underneath the moon above
And every sailor knows this girl so brave
Was faithful to her pledge of island love

Underneath the palm trees on the shore
Weeping by herself down by the bay
She awaits the sailor boy whom she adores
And she remembers words he had to say

Will your love for me be always true
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile
I’ll return when whaling days are through
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile

When sailors weigh their anchor for to sail
Underneath the moon they tell this tale
And to the island girl their voices hail
Will your love for me be always true
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile
I’ll return when whaling days are through
Aloha ‘oe, Moana Maile

Aloha ‘oe
Moana Maile



In Love With Roselani (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1262)


Roselani, Roselani
From morning light til evening time
Roselani’s on my mind

When I stroll the shore
I always think of her some more
I just can’t ignore Roselani

And it’s so disarming
In my dreams she’s charming
When I stroll arm in arm with Roselani

But then I come to reality
Roselani doesn’t even know me
It must be my mentality
She hasn’t even said Aloha ‘oe

I see her by the island shop
And I think my heart will almost stop
I whisper to myself, Aloha Roselani

I like the way she smiles
But she doesn’t smile at me
Oh, how can you ever know, Roselani

Maybe some day she will see
Just how much she means to me
Until then my heart will be
In love with Roselani

Maybe some day she will see
Just how much she means to me
Until then my heart will be
In love with Roselani



Lemon Drops And A Tuberose (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1263)


Say Aloha with care, kiss her on the cheek
Be sure that you’re aware, of words to kindly speak
There are simple things that love will compose
A tuberose and lemon drops
Lemon drops and a tuberose

Some days she’s happy, some days she’s sad
Every day, think of ways to make her glad
Say Aloha with meaning, she can’t oppose
Give her a tuberose and lemon drops
Lemon drops and a tuberose

Don’t try to be an island, alone in the stream
Say Aloha with meaning, cause she’s your island dream

So, give her a fragrant lei, flowers are the start
Say Aloha with meaning, and she’ll love you from the heart
And don’t forget the simple things that love will compose
A tuberose and lemon drops
Lemon drops and a tuberose



Strolling Solo (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1264)


It’s been more than a year
Here are more solo tears
And I still stroll by the bay
Wher they play our love song
But now the tune is all wrong
It’s so solo since you went away

At night I still dream
And then I assess
The reasons for my loneliness
And I try to scheme how to regain your caress
I’m strolling solo, I guess

The voices I hear, appear to be mine
I’m so lonesome since you went away
I know the island was fine
When our love was in prime
But I’m strolling solo today

Each day I see tropic skies
So, why am I blue
This should be paradise
But I’m so low here without you
When I lost you, I lost happiness
I’m strolling solo, I guess

When I lost you, I lost happiness
I’m strolling solo, I guess



My Far Away Dream (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1265)


Of far away places a long time ago
I dreamed of a girl where tradewinds blow
And today that dream is here

The future I saw through cloudy glass
But then upon her isle I was cast
I saw my dream at last

Of far away places a long time ago
I dreamed of a girl where tradewinds blow
And today my dream is near

A vision of loveliness where breezes blew
One look at you and then I knew
My far away dream was you

Of far away places a long time ago
I dreamed of a girl where tradewinds blow
And today that dream is here

The future I saw through cloudy glass
But then upon her isle I was cast
I saw my dream at last

A vision of loveliness where breezes blew
One look at you and then I knew
My far away dream was you



Right Words Of Love (Larry W. Jones 03/31/2003) (song#1266)


If your heart knows Aloha
Then it has right words of love to say
If your heart knows Aloha
It will never lead astray
So, every day, think of words to speak of
Just say Aloha every day
And share your heart with those you love

Don’t be late or you will find
That right words can run out of time
If your heart knows Aloha
Then it has right words of love to say

If your heart knows Aloha
Then it has right words of love to say
If your heart knows Aloha
It will never lead astray
So, every day, think of words to speak of
Just say Aloha every day
And share your heart with those you love



Anywhere It Cares To Grow (04/01/2003) (song#1267)


The setting sun will paint the sky anywhere
Breezes caress the islands where tradewinds blow
Leaves are green wherever spring is in the air
And Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow

Stroll a crowded beach at twilight time
When you’ll find love, nobody knows
Soon you’re dancing to soft Maui chimes
Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow

In the ocean grows corals and pearls
In the desert, sometimes a flower will show
On an island, there are boys and girls
Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow

Far and wide, you’ll see in time
Where it may happen, nobody knows
But I know I’ve found a love that’s mine
Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow

Stroll a crowded beach at twilight time
When you’ll find love, nobody knows
Soon you’re dancing to soft Maui chimes
Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow

Far and wide, you’ll see in time
Where it may happen, nobody knows
But I know I’ve found a love that’s mine
Aloha love is anywhere it cares to grow



Love Is An Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1268)


A companion is a tall palm tree
That bends when a strong wind blows
A companion is a tall palm tree
And Aloha love is an island rose

Romance is a new rainbow
After the tropic rain, it shows
Romance is a new rainbow
And Aloha love is an island rose

Please take this lei of roses for you
On this our wedding day
Let this rose say I love you
And here our island love will always stay

A companion is a tall palm tree
That bends when a strong wind blows
A companion is a tall palm tree
And Aloha love is an island rose

A companion is a tall palm tree
Romance is a new rainbow
Let this rose say I love you
Aloha love is an island rose
Let this rose say I love you
Aloha love is an island rose



Love Letters, Faxes And Email (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1269)


Love letters, love faxes and email
Anyway to keep us from being apart
I wouldn’t mind even if they were in braille
Cause I know they’re straight from your heart

I save the love letters, love faxes and email
I read them again without fail
Anyway to keep us from being apart
Cause I know they’re straight from your heart

Love letters, love faxes and email
Anyway to keep us from being apart
I wouldn’t mind even if they were in braille
Cause I know they’re straight from your heart

I read them again without fail
Anyway to keep us from being apart
Cause I know they’re straight from your heart



Everything That’s Nice (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1270)


Soft as tropic moonlight, bright as stars above
Warm as island sunshine, it’s you I’m thinking of
Sweet as fragrant tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Darling, just like everything that’s nice
Love looks good on you in paradise

Did you notice all the palm trees waving
When you strolled by
And did you know, for you my heart is craving
Even the tradewinds sigh

Soft as tropic moonlight, bright as stars above
Warm as island sunshine, it’s you I’m thinking of
Sweet as fragrant tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Darling, just like everything that’s nice
Love looks good on you in paradise

Did you hear the bluebird sing
Beautiful as Maui chimes
Your love has played on my heart strings
I so want to make you mine

Soft as tropic moonlight, bright as stars above
Warm as island sunshine, it’s you I’m thinking of
Sweet as fragrant tuberoses kissed by morning dew
Darling, just like everything that’s nice
Love looks good on you in paradise

Darling, just like everything that’s nice
Love looks good on you in paradise



Loved One Of The Island (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1271)


Loved one of the island, girl of my life
My every prayer has been answered, for
You are my wife
Loved one of the island, girl of my life

Now, we have each other, to love and respect
There’ll be none other, no ways to correct
Bring all your charms, for you are my wife
Loved one of the island, girl of my life

Island ohana is love that will grow
We’ll teach our children to be free from strife
The love that we have is not just for show
Loved one of the island, girl of my life

Now, we have each other, to love and respect
There’ll be none other, no ways to correct
Bring all your charms, for you are my wife
Loved one of the island, girl of my life

Loved one of the island, girl of my life
My every prayer has been answered, for
You are my wife
Loved one of the island, girl of my life



I Sail A Lonely Sea (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1272)


What is the reason I’m alone
When is the season for a song
Like an island drifting endlessly
I sail a lonely sea

My love said goodbye to me
Now I’m lost and can’t get free
I sail a lonely sea

She threw away the key to her heart
There’s no room for my love there too
What is the reason we’re apart
Now I know why the sea is blue

Why won’t she understand
Why can’t I be her island man
There’s no paradise to be
I sail a lonely sea

She threw away the key to her heart
There’s no room for my love there too
What is the reason we’re apart
Now I know why the sea is blue

Why won’t she understand
Why can’t I be her island man
There’s no paradise to be
I sail a lonely sea



Her Love Is More (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1273)



I have seen the rainbows painted
On a tropic evening sky
I have even been acquainted
Like birds with the urge to fly

Singing with the island songs that sound like Maui chimes
Softly to entice
Calming as the setting sun that makes the tropics rhyme
Aloha love I see in her eyes

Hands as soft and gentle as the tradewind breeze
Upon my face
There’s no trace of worry that love will ever cease
She’s an island woman with heaven’s grace

Reaching for me every day with her Aloha love
I never thought I’d find
Someone who must have come from realms above
To fill my heart and mind

Her love is more
Than any love I’ll ever find again

She came from an island where ohana love is shown
Through a loving family line
She’s a girl, a woman and a lover like I’ve never known
Love like her’s is so hard to define

There’s no easy answer for her loving island ways
Sometimes it’s so hard to explain
But if I live to be a hundred, I will cherish all the days
No one better could I ever gain

Her love is more
Than any love I’ll ever find again



Moments Of Island Magic (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1274)



Moments of island magic, our hearts were in a whirl
Moments of island magic, a boy and a girl
Me and you in Hawaii blue

I can’t forget your friendly Aloha
At the luau by the bay
And how you danced the hula
In such a graceful way

Moments of island magic, our hearts were in a whirl
Moments of island magic, a boy and a girl
Me and you in Hawaii blue

I remember the magic
Moments of island magic
Of Aloha love

When we first strolled in the sand
Hand in hand at Waikiki
When we swayed to the island band
And sang Beyond the Reef

Moments of island magic, our hearts were in a whirl
Moments of island magic, a boy and a girl
Me and you in Hawaii blue

The time when the outrigger
Came off the canoe, in awe
And we saw the little trigger fish
The Humuhumunukunukuapua’a

The Na Pali cliffs, the racing skiff
The tropic moon, that night in June
I remember the magic
Moments of island magic
Of Aloha love



Find An Island Of Love (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1275)



Find an island of love, let an island love find you
Find an island of love and a love that’s true
Don’t wait another day, find a peaceful bay
Find an island of love, let an island love find you

I heard a guitar man singing about some island sand
On a street in Frisco bay, for small change he would play
I had nothing to do, so just between me and you
I stopped and listened to what he had to say

Find an island of love, let an island love find you
Find an island of love and a love that’s true
Don’t wait another day, find a peaceful bay
Find an island of love, let an island love find you

The traffic in the city was a parking lot parade
It’s nice to hear a song that makes you want to trade
A guitar man was singing about some island sand
So, just sing along and you can become an island man

Find an island of love, let an island love find you
Find an island of love and a love that’s true
Don’t wait another day, find a peaceful bay
Find an island of love, let an island love find you

Find an island of love, let an island love find you
Find an island of love
And a love that’s true



Every Day In Love With You (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1276)



I would like to be in something new
Every day, in love with you
It’s the Aloha thing to do
Every day, in love with you

When I see your angel face
Island music is in the air
And when we stroll in our secret place
I’m in love with you there

Tradewinds whispered secretly
You’re in love with me
Even now the secret is easy to see
Cause you’re here with me

Every day I’ll find a way to fall in love with you
It’s the way of Aloha, here in Hawaii blue

Tradewinds whispered secretly
You’re in love with me
Even now the secret is easy to see
Cause you’re here with me

Every day I’ll find a way to fall in love with you
It’s the way of Aloha, here in Hawaii blue
I’m in love with you



Maui In The Moonlight (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1277)


We’re not in the islands
In an outrigger canoe
In Hawaii blue
But it seems like we’re in Maui
And the music’s here with you

Cause I can see Maui in the moonlight
Hear guitars in the night
Maui in the moonlight
And when the music starts
Maui in the moonlight
Plays songs of island love within my heart

We won’t be dancing
At the luau
Down by the bay
But you know we’ll be romancing
Until the break of day

Cause I can see Maui in the moonlight
Hear guitars in the night
Maui in the moonlight
And when the music starts
Maui in the moonlight
Plays songs of island love within my heart

Now, we can practice how they say
I love you, the island way
Aloha ku’u ipo
Sweetheart, I love you so

Cause I can see Maui in the moonlight
Hear guitars in the night
Maui in the moonlight
And when the music starts
Maui in the moonlight
Plays songs of island love within my heart

Maui in the moonlight
The light of island love



Back In Honolulu Town (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1278)


I love to see, that tropic sun go down
I love to see, that tropic sun go down
Cause my island girl
Just got back to Honolulu town

I’ll be feeling tomorrow, just like I am today
I’ll be feeling tomorrow, just like I am today
Today I have no sorrow, my baby’s back to stay

I read my fortune cookie, then I threw it away
I read my fortune cookie, then I threw it away
It said I’ll find new girl, who won’t let me down
Don’t need no fortune cookie
My baby’s back in Honolulu town

Honolulu baby, love to see that tropic sun go down
Honolulu baby, love to see that tropic sun go down
Cause my island baby
Gonna meet me in Honolulu town
Yeah, my island baby
Is back in Honolulu town



If Dreams Were Blue (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1279)


If dreams were blue, I’d have one too
Cause everywhere I go, I think of you
If dreams were gold, mine would be sold
Cause my dreams are empty without you

If dreams were gray, it would match my day
I can only say, I miss you more in every way
If dreams were green, they couldn’t be meaner
Than this lonely tropic scene, and my demeanor

I’m glad the sky is blue, even though I feel that way too
I’m glad the tradewinds blow, even though I know
Those love songs whispered there
Are not for me, but I don’t care
What good are love songs
If you don’t have a love to show

You promised me you would never say goodbye
But now I see your clever way of lies

If dreams were blue, I’d have one too
Cause everywhere I go, I think of you
If dreams were gold, mine would be sold
Cause my dreams are empty without you

If dreams were gold, mine would be sold
If dreams were blue, I’d have one too
Cause my dreams are empty without you



An Island Kinda Thing (04/01/2003) (song#1280)


It’s an island kinda thing
Aloha love and a wedding ring
And that island kinda thing
Is what’s makin’ my heart sing

Where there’s Aloha, there’s island love, you see
A guy and a gal, husband and wife to be
It’s an island kinda thing
Kinda makin’ my heart sing

She’ll have flowers, in her hair
She’ll have rubies, two lips to kiss
Diamonds, her polynesian eyes
Starlight, to guide our way to bliss
And gold, her love in paradise

It’s an island kinda thing
A tropic moon above
It will be eternal spring
That’s what I’m thinking of
It’s an island kinda thing
Our Aloha island love



Possibly, Certainly (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1281)


Possibly, you’ll dream of me
When you’re sleepin’ alone and blue
Certainly, I dream of you
When night comes creepin’ and I’m missin’ you

Possibly, you’ll give a sigh
And shed a tear
Certainly, I can’t deny
I want you near

Would it be possible to think the improbable
And beg you with certainty to bring your love back to me

Possibly, you’ll dream of me
When you’re sleepin’ alone and blue
Certainly, I dream of you
When night comes creepin’ and I’m missin’ you

Possibly, you’ll give a sigh
And shed a tear
Certainly, I can’t deny
I want you near

Would it be possible to think the improbable
And beg you with certainty to bring your love back to me



Two Castaways (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1282)


Just me and my island
Two castaways, it seems
Just me and my island
Drifting alone in the stream

When the tide comes in
I’m lonely again
When the tide goes out
I’m still blue, no doubt

Just me and my island
Two castaways, it seems

When I stroll through the sand
I’m feel like a castaway man
When I hear an island love song
There’s no cheer being alone

Just me and my island
Two castaways, it seems
Just me and my island
Drifting alone in the stream

Just me and my island
Two castaways, it seems



Listen You Island Lovers (Larry W. Jones 04/01/2003) (song#1283)


Listen you island lovers
Listen to the sea
There’s more than just some mainland
There’s island beauty to see

There are deep blue oceans
Where lovers can go
There you’ll find new emotions
Just take it real slow

The stars in the heaven
Are a heavenly delight
The oceans, they number up to seven
Where islands are hidden out of sight

Listen you island lovers
Listen to the sea
That call to island love
Is as clear as it can be

And as sure as there are islands
Somewhere in the sea
You can find your island love
The same way it called to me

And as sure as there are islands
Somewhere in the sea
You can find your island love
The same way it called to me



Guitar Strummin’ Lullaby (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1284)


Go to sleep, my baby, sleep under the island moon
Rest your weary self while guitars play island tunes
The night is a-fallin’, sandman a-callin’
While tradewinds softly sigh

Over in Hawaii, where I heard this mele
When just an island boy less than three
Slack key guitars strummin’, island songs hummin’
Me to sleep on my mother’s knee

I still can hear those guitars strummmin’
Hear island songs the old folks were hummin’

Go to sleep, my baby, sleep under the island moon
Rest your weary self while guitars play island tunes
The night is a-fallin’, sandman a-callin’
While tradewinds softly sigh

Over in Hawaii, where I heard this mele
When just an island boy less than three
Slack key guitars strummin’, island songs hummin’
Me to sleep on my mother’s knee

Slack key guitars strummin’, island songs hummin’
Me to sleep on my mother’s knee



Glow Of The Tropic Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1285)


In the tropic twilight
Under a darkened velvet sky
A dream suddenly shined bright
And that’s when I knew

It came with the glow of the tropic moon
Under a sky of velvet blue
It came with the glow of the tropic moon
When my dream turned into you

As the tradewinds drifted by
My heart was beating fast
You were so shy, and I begged
Don’t let this night go by too fast

There was magic in the balmy air
A million guitars were playing there

It came with the glow of the tropic moon
Under a sky of velvet blue
It came with the glow of the tropic moon
When my dream turned into you

You and I in the moonlight
We strolled the sand and watched a falling star
That was the night when everything was right
On the island where love calls from afar

It came with the glow of the tropic moon
When my dream turned into you
When my dream turned into you



More Or Less (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1286)


More or less, I’ll have to confess
The more I feel your caress
The less I can resist all your charms
The more I want of your arms

More or less, I’ll have to profess
The more this dream you’re fulfilling
The less I find that I’m willing
To love anyone less than you

I can’t figure it out, but without a doubt
More or less, I’ll confess I want more of you

More or less, I’ll have to profess
The more this dream you’re fulfilling
The less I find that I’m willing
To love anyone less than you

I can’t figure it out, but without a doubt
More or less, I’ll confess I want more of you



It’s Likely (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1287)


It’s likely more than more or less
I like the way you’re leading me, I guess
It’s likely more than more or less
I like the way I feel so blessed

It’s likely more than none at all
I like the way I felt my heart fall
When there was none other but you on the shore
And you said it was likely I could love you more

It’s likely you, more than all the rest
To whom I would like to make this request
It’s likely to you I’ll want to bring
A bridal dress and a wedding ring

It’s likely you, more than all the rest
To whom I would like to make this request
It’s likely to you I’ll want to bring
A bridal dress and a wedding ring



Even If (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1288)


Even if you’re here or there
Even if you’re gone or true
Even if you’re not aware
There’s no if that my heart is fond of you

Even if your friends all leave you
Even if they sail across the sea
There’s no if that love would find you
If you just look at me

More than anyone, foe or friend
Girl of my dreams, you should know
That even if the world would end
I would still love you, I know

Even if I’m wrong
Even if I’m right
Girl of my dreams, I’ll carry on
Even if you’re out of sight

The way I love you is oh, so true
Even if you never knew
And even if some island calls to you
I’ll answer the same call too
Even if you’re in Hawaii blue



Coloring Book Dreams (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1289)


Some colors are red and some are green
And some are just said, and some can’t be seen
A coloring book can be many things
My coloring book is all about dreams

These are my islands far out in the sea
They call to me
Color them as beautiful as can be
Here is my heart, no matter where I roam
It will always lead me home
Color it never gone

Here are the bays where dolphins play
The shore where tall palms sway
Color them fun today
Here are the flowers that make a lei
Ohana love, that’s the Hawaiian way
Color them as gently as you may

Here is the girl where the tradewind blows
I’m in love with her, she knows
Color her lovely as a rose
Here are the arms that have held her close
My love for her grows and grows
Color them happy, I suppose

Islands are for lovers all
And when you hear their call from above
You can color them from memory
A paradise colored with love



I’ll Dream Of You (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1290)


Palms, are swayin’ in the island breeze
Waving fronds to you and me, as we stroll by
Sweet, flowers in your fragrant lei
Seems to gently say, paradise

Soft, guitars of the island nights
Songs that say that all is right, here with you

I know that dreams might drift away someday
But islands will call
And you must know that if it’s so
I’ll come back to you
Until then
I’ll think of you here where tradewinds blow
I’ll dream of you

When my heart, beats within with empty pain
I’ll think of island days again
I’ll dream of you

I know that dreams might drift away someday
But islands will call
And you must know that if it’s so
I’ll come back to you
Until then
I’ll think of you here where tradewinds blow
I’ll dream of you

When my heart, beats within with empty pain
I’ll think of island days again
I’ll dream of you



Filled With Loving You (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1291)


I know that forever the tropic moon will shine
But that my days might run out of time
Even though they may be few
They were filled with loving you

If I run out of days and island sun
My love will always remain as true
I wll know when my days are done
They were filled with loving you

Let the world go or come what may
Whether the ocean is calm or roars
I’ll remember that yesterday
We shared our love on island shores

Nothing I’ve done in this short life
Is worth as much as love that’s true
The days that we were man and wife
Were filled with my loving you

When my island days are through
I’ll know
They were filled with loving you
They were filled with loving you



Lovely Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1292)


My lovely island girl, lovely island girl
You set my heart aflame
Your looks are beautiful, an island pearl
Please don’t ever change

Your figure is so trim and sleek
You make my resistance weak
And when you speak, it’s lika a song
One that I want to sing along
Lovely island girl, if you care for me
Don’t change a thing through eternity

My lovely island girl, lovely island girl
You set my heart aflame
Your looks are beautiful, an island pearl
Please don’t ever change

And when you speak, it’s lika a song
One that I want to sing along
Lovely island girl, if you care for me
Don’t change a thing through eternity



So Fast (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1293)


I laughed at island girls, in Kamehameha schools
Silly little island girls, just romantic fools
Then I saw you and I didn’t have to think about it twice
Your polynesian eyes reflected all of paradise

One look and I knew, those silly days were through
I saw beauty unsurpassed
I took a breath or two, then I really fell for you
My heart fell for you so fast

Before we had spoken those first words
I knew that you had felt it too
Before we had even strolled in the sand
I felt the love in your gentle hand

I laughed at island girls, in Kamehameha schools
Silly little island girls, just romantic fools
Then I saw you and I didn’t have to think about it twice
Your polynesian eyes reflected all of paradise

Before we had spoken those first words
I knew that you had felt it too
Before we had even strolled in the sand
I felt the love in your gentle hand

I saw beauty unsurpassed
My heart fell for you so fast
I saw beauty unsurpassed
My heart fell for you so fast



My Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1294)



Leilani strolls, with a graceful flow
Leilani sings, like those Maui strings
Her long black hair, shines like Tahitian pearls
I don’t mind that Leilani is my island girl

The island guys, knows she’s a prize
Polynesian eyes, from paradise
Leilani’s smile sets my heart awhirl
I don’t mind that Leilani is my island girl

A beauty with grace
Let’s face it, Leilani is really neat
When our lips meet
She’s the sweetest island treat

A book, would have to be a picture book
From heaven, to picture how she looks
A treasure worth more than all the world
I don’t mind that Leilani is my island girl

A beauty with grace
Let’s face it, Leilani is really neat
When our lips meet
She’s the sweetest island treat

A book, would have to be a picture book
From heaven, to picture how she looks
A treasure worth more than all the world
I don’t mind that Leilani is my island girl

Leilani is a true island girl
She loves fish and poi
I don’t mind that Leilani is my island girl
And she said she doesn’t mind that I’m her island boy



My Love Loves (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1295)


My love loves to hula dance, island songs to sing
My love has a happy-go-lucky, island kinda swing
Under deep blue velvet skies, yellow moonlight beams
My love is the love of my dreams

She loves to play, down by the bay
When the surf is up, really makes her day
Like a rainbow painted by the sun
My love is acquainted with island fun

She’s a prime thing, rhyme thing, a Maui chime thing
Like love in the tropic air
If the palms are swayin’, guitars are playin’
Then under stars we’re sayin’ that we’ll be there

My love loves to hula dance, island songs to sing
My love has a happy-go-lucky, island kinda swing
And when the moon is right, we kiss goodnight
My love loves to hula dance, island songs to sing
She sings and dances in my island dreams



Somber Island Baby Blue (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1296)


Let me say Aloha, my somber island baby
Feel my arms around you, and don’t be blue
Don’t be afraid of things that are just maybe
They will fade away, but not my love for you

Behind a dark cloud, the sun still is shining
So, look for that silver lining too
Smile awhile, my island baby, let love be refining
Or I’ll be like my somber island baby too

Behind every dark cloud, the sun will come shining through
Just look for that silver lining, and you’ll see my love there too

Let me say Aloha, my somber island baby
Feel my arms around you, and don’t be blue
Don’t be afraid of things that are just maybe
They will fade away, but not my love for you

Behind a dark cloud, the sun still is shining
So, look for that silver lining too
Smile awhile, my island baby, let love be refining
Or I’ll be like my somber island baby too
Let me say Aloha
To my somber island baby blue



My Carefree Island Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1297)

My carefree island heart
My carefree island heart
You’ll never be free again
My carefree island heart

I was here today but gone to Maui
Looking for carefree Maui wowie
But I turned over a new leaf from the start
You’ll never be free again
My carefree island heart

I met a girl at Maui Hard Rock Cafe
Then I knew I would have to part
With something I didn’t want to give away
My carefree island heart

I tried to play that game so cool
But I must not have been so smart
It was like going back to school, I gave away
My carefree island heart

I guess I owe the Maui Hard Rock Cafe
For changing something cool into smart
When to that island girl I gave that day
My carefree island heart

You’ll never be free again
My carefree, used to be
My carefree island heart



Moanalani (Larry W. Jones 04/02/2003) (song#1298)


Tonight will come the song and pledge of love
‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe Moanalani
You are indeed my love, Moanalani

Our song is whispered on the breeze
Waiting lips are here to please
This night was sealed from up above
Tonight will come the song and pledge of love

‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe Moanalani
You are indeed my love, Moanalani

Tonight the story will be told
Traditions from the isles of long ago
You are indeed my love to hold
This night of endless love for Moanalani

Here where tradewinds softly blow
Soft are two shadows, love aglow
Love will be our beacon light
Love will shine this night of nights
‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe Moanalani
You are indeed my love, Moanalani

Tonight the story will be told
Traditions from the isles of long ago
You are indeed my love to hold
This night of endless love for Moanalani

And now my heart beats with you
Our sweet mele, song and pledge of love
The story of island love is true
The song of love for Moanalani
‘O Ku’u Aloha No ‘Oe Moanalani
You are indeed my love, Moanalani



Lovely Island Tuberose (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2003) (song#1299)


Lovely is the island tuberose
Fragrant petals for love to impart
Scented from the ground where it grows
An island tuberose for every loving heart

Day by day it’s ever sweeter
This all the other island flowers know
Flower petals for a honey eater
Lovely is the island tuberose

You are the flower that’s most scented
Not just another rose you are
From the heavens you have descended
Among sweet roses, you’re the star

Lovely is the island tuberose
Fragrant petals for love to impart
Scented from the ground where it grows
An island tuberose for every loving heart
Lovely is the island tuberose



Thirteen Hundred (04/03/2003) (song#1300)


Thirteen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Thirteen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Thirteen 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
Thirteen 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
Thirteen hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

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



The Love I’ve Won (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2003) (song#1301)


Soft moonbeams on silver seas
Warm tradewinds caress palm trees
Two shadows on the sand as one
All of these make up the love I’ve won

Birds fly above in skies of blue
Island love makes dreams come true
The beauty of the setting tropic sun
All of these make up the love I’ve won

Clouds that always have a silver line
Vows that say that you’re forever mine
Flame of love that we can claim
All of these make up the love I’ve won

Separate dreams that now are one
Hearts that beat when island dreams are done
All of these make up the love I’ve won
All of these make up the love I’ve won



Makin’ Maui Wowie (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2003) (song#1302)


An island girl, a Maui boy
Another case of island joy
A bridal dress, reason enough, I guess
For makin’ Maui wowie

A tropic moon, the month of June
And pretty soon, lovers swoon
Island guitars too, are right in tune
For makin’ Maui wowie

On the valley isle in old Hawaii
Talley up the smiles in old Maui
When an island girl and a Maui boy
Enjoy a life together by the sea
For makin’ Maui wowie

He’s catchin’ fishes, she’s makin’ poi
He’s stealin’ kisses, she’s full of joy
And it’s not a jest, Maui’s the best
For makin’ Maui wowie

He’s catchin’ fishes, she’s makin’ poi
He’s stealin’ kisses, she’s full of joy
And it’s not a jest, Maui’s the best
For makin’ Maui wowie



Slack Key Guitar For Me (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2003) (song#1303)


Won’t you play some kiho’alu
A simple island guitar melody
Won’t you play some kiho’alu
Like Gabby Pahinui used to do

Slack key guitar is the island melody
Like tropic stars that are so heavenly
It’s the real Hawaiian harmony
Like Gabby Pahinui played for you and me

Hawaiian guitar melody
Play that slack key guitar for me
No other strings can sound so heavenly
As a slack key guitar melody

It’s that old fashioned island harmony
That Gabby’s band played there by the sea
Sounds that made Hawaiian history
Won’t you play some kiho’alu
Some kiho’alu slack key guitar for me



My Island Love (Larry W. Jones 04/03/2003) (song#1304)


Where the velvet blue of the tropic night
Overcomes the choicest gold of the island day
There my island love waits for me

Her long dark silky hair
Crowns the beauty of polynesian eyes
My island love is waiting there
There on her island of paradise

I would be so happy to see her again
Where those steel guitars play their sweet refrain

Her long dark silky hair
Crowns the beauty of polynesian eyes
My island love is waiting there
There on her island of paradise

Where the velvet blue of the tropic night
Overcomes the choicest gold of the island day
There my island love waits for me
There my island love waits for me



Hold Onto Your Dreams (Larry W. Jones 04/04/2003) (song#1305)


When sunny skies turn to cloudy gray
Hold onto your dreams
Don’t let them drift away
Dream again of a sunny island day

So, swap your troubles for some dreams
Blow some bubbles, or scoop ice cream
And you’ll see that sunshine shining through
Dream of sunny islands in the blue

Life can make you stumble
But you don’t have to fall
Life can make you fumble
But here’s something to recall
An island, so small and humble
Will make dreams stand up tall
And Hawaii is the best of all
That’s why Hawaii calls

When sunny skies turn to cloudy gray
Hold onto your dreams
Don’t let them drift away
Dream again of a sunny island day

Just remember that sunshine follows a cloudy day
Hold onto your dreams
Don’t let them drift away
Dream again of a sunny island day



I’ve Heard Hawaii Call (Larry W. Jones 04/04/2003) (song#1306)


Once I had a career, makin’ airplanes fly
They flew away from here, in the skies
Once I helped to build a ship, sure did turn out nice
It sailed away to paradise

Airplanes fly and ships are nice
And dreams sometimes are tall
Buddy, can you get me to paradise
Once more I’ve heard Hawaii call

Once I worked in three piece suits
Polished shoes, cuff links and ties
But now I’m after a new pursuit
Buddy, can you get me to paradise

Once they said, there goes big Tex
Now I just want a place that’s small
A peaceful place that’s not complex
Once more I’ve heard Hawaii call

Once I worked in three piece suits
Polished shoes, cuff links and ties
But now I’m after a new pursuit
Buddy, can you get me to paradise

I just want a peaceful place that’s small
I’ve heard Hawaii call



Like Waves Of Kahakuloa (Larry W. Jones 04/04/2003) (song#1307)


Please come to me
E ku`u ipo, my darling love
Snuggle close, I plea
Underneath the stars above
May our love forever be

Like a fragrant lei blossom you are
A garland for me to wear
E ku`u ipo, my darling love
The moon is full above
E ku’u ipo, your love forever sware

The ocean at Kahakuloa
Booms so loud upon the reef
Like waves of Kahakuloa
E ku`u ipo, my darling love, for you I breathe
O Kahakuloa, may your love never leave

Puana `ia mai, let the mele be told
E ku`u ipo, my darling love
Your love is more than gold
E ku’u ipo, my darling love
Like waves of Kahakuloa
You will always be my love

E ku’u ipo, my darling love
Like waves of Kahakuloa
You will always be my love
Like waves of Kahakuloa
You will always be my love



Twilight With Tropic Stars (Larry W. Jones 04/05/2003) (song#1308)


Twilight, with tropic stars and you, dear
Twilight, and an island rendezvous
Your polynesian eyes held a message
That was oh, so clear
A message that said, Aloha, I love you

Twilight brought us a tropical romance
And one thing I know, my whole life through
My memories will be so enhanced
When I remember twilight with tropic stars
And you

Your arms held a message, oh, so tender
A message that said, to me, surrender
Twilight, and an island rendezvous
A message that said, Aloha, I love you

Twilight brought us a tropical romance
And one thing I know, my whole life through
My memories will be so enhanced
When I remember twilight with tropic stars
And you



Where Do They All Go (Larry W. Jones 04/06/2003) (song#1309)


Can you tell me, where do they all go
These dreams I dream each night
These dreams where tradewinds always blow
These dreams of sweet delight

There must be an ending, this time that I am spending
Where do they all go, these dreams where breezes blow
I would be a king, I know
If I could be where breezes blow

Dream, dream, dream your cares away
Dream, dream, dream where island breezes say
Love, love, love, Aloha is in the air
Love, love, love, Dream away your cares

Where do they all go, these dreams that cast a spell
These dreams at night that picture you so well
Where do they go when the tropic night is done
Oh, when will you be my one and only one

Where do they all go, these dreams that cast a spell
These dreams at night that picture you so well
Where do they go when the tropic night is done
Oh, when will you be my one and only one
When will you be my only one



Dream Glance (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1310)

Have you ever seen a dream that strolled in the sand
Well, the dream I saw bowled my heart right over, man
And have you ever heard a dream talking sweet and low
Well, I could have been fire walking and never know
Have you ever heard one say Aloha, and sound divine
Well, the one that stirred my heart is now forever mine

Have you ever seen a dream swaying to a hula dance
Well, I saw one that took away my heart with just a glance
Have you ever seen a dream that was all romance
Well, the one I saw didn’t even give my heart a chance
Did you ever find a love with oh, so many charms
Well, the one I found just said Aloha in my arms

My dream was strolling, my heart was bowling
My dream was dancing, while I was glancing
Now in my arms with all her charms, my dream is you

My dream was strolling, my heart was bowling
My dream was dancing, while I was glancing
Now in my arms with all her charms, my dream is you



Understanding Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1311)


Has your heart ever felt lowly, has it told on you
Has your love drifted slowly, off into the blue
That’s the way my dreams went, and the plans we made
Now my lonely time’s spent, dreaming dreams that fade

If your heart was understanding, as at the start
My dreams wouldn’t be landing, on a broken heart
If your heart was understanding, you would know my love is true
And love could be landing, on an isle where dreams come true

Has your heart ever felt lowly, has it told on you
Has your love drifted slowly, off into the blue
That’s the way my dreams went, and the plans we made
Now my lonely time’s spent, dreaming dreams that fade

If your heart was understanding, you would know my love is true
And love could be landing, on an isle where dreams come true



I Can’t Believe (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1312)


I had my eyes on you
Like some dream that can’t come true
I can’t believe it’s true
I can’t believe this dream is really you

Here in Hawaii blue
Your kiss was warm and true
Your eyes even told me too
I can’t believe this dream is really you

I’m singing everywhere I go
I’m telling everyone I know
My dream came one day from the blue
I can’t believe this dream is really you

Your kiss was warm and true
Your eyes even told me too
I can’t believe this dream is really you
I can’t believe this dream is really you



Love You For All Time (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1313)


I can’t buy you an island made for love
But I can give you all my island love
I can’t buy you a dream out from the blue
But I can give you love supreme that will be true

You’re bound to find a love, but not as sound as mine
I can give you happiness and love you for all time

My love for you is not some dream
Not some evil scheme
My love will be as easy as a beam
Of a tropic moon with an island theme

I can’t buy you an island made for love
But I can give you all my island love
I can’t buy you a dream out from the blue
But I can give you love supreme that will be true

You’re bound to find a love, but not as sound as mine
I can give you happiness and love you for all time



Traditional Dreaming (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1314)


Your kisses and your arms
Are traditional parts of my dreams of your charms
Dreaming of you is traditional with me
Your smile and your island ways
Graceful style that you display so dispositionally
Dreaming of you is traditional with me

I used to pass up any dream
Just be an island in the stream was the mission
All by myself, but now it seems transitional
Dreaming of you is traditional with me

Now, I don’t want to be alone
Since I met you, I’m much more ambitional
I found that my heart is not of stone
Dreaming of you is traditional with me

I used to pass up any dream
Just be an island in the stream was the mission
All by myself, but now it seems transitional
Dreaming of you is traditional with me

Now, I don’t want to be alone
Since I met you, I’m much more ambitional
I found that my heart is not of stone
Dreaming of you is traditional with me



Date With An Island Girl (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1315)


I’ve got a date with an island girl
Gonna meet her where the breakers curl
I’ve got a date with an island girl
Can’t be late for an island whirl

She will look so pretty standing there
And pretty soon we’ll be strolling there
Can’t wait to put a flower in her hair
I’ve got a date with an island girl

Soon, I will meet my pretty island miss
And pretty soon I will ask her for a kiss
And I want to tell the whole world this
I’ve got a date with an island girl

Soon, we’ll be dancing to Maui chimes
And pretty soon I hope that she’ll be mine
I’ve got a mind for a wedding dress in time
I’ve got a date with an island girl of mine
Soon, we’ll be dancing to Maui chimes
I’ve got a date with an island girl of mine



Angel Of A Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1316)


Even if you’re not an angel
You’re an angel of a dream come true
Even if you’re not an angel
You’re an angel of a dream
That I can share my love with too

I was looking for an angel, even though
Angels don’t fly where tradewinds blow
But even if you’re not an angel from above
You’re an angel of a dream for me to love

Every time I looked for angels in this place
I dreamed of one that had an angel’s grace
I never thought I’d see that angel’s face
Until an angel of a dream took it’s place
You’re an angel of a dream for me to love

Even if you’re not an angel
You’re an angel of a dream come true
Even if you’re not an angel
You’re an angel of a dream
That I can share my love with too

You’re an angel of a dream
That I can share my love with too



Just Around The Island (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1317)


Love is just around the island
This little island will do
Love is just around the island
That’s why I’m smilin’ at you

If you want to find an island love
Find you an island that’s round
Love is just around the island, it’s true
I just looked around the island
That’s why I’m smilin’ at you

I tried to find a love on the mainland
But even the map was like a square
So I looked around for an island
Where love blows around in the air

The love I was looking for finally came around
Love was just around the island, it’s true
I looked around and it was you I found
That’s why I’m smilin’ at you

Love was just around the island
That’s why I’m smilin’ at you



A Healthy Tan (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1318)


Well, tonight I’ve got a tan
The day went right in line with my plan
I caught some rays down by the bay
When we strolled around where the palm trees sway

I’ll have to blame this tan on the sun
But all the same, it sure was fun
I caught some rays down by the bay
When we strolled around where the palm trees sway

Tonight I have a healthy glow
And it’s not the moon putting on it’s show
It’s the wealth of being with you this way
As we stroll around where the palm trees sway

Well, tonight I’ve got a tan
The day went right in line with my plan
I caught some rays down by the bay
When we strolled around where the palm trees sway

Tonight I have a healthy glow
And it’s not the moon putting on it’s show
It’s the wealth of being with you this way
As we stroll around where the palm trees sway



Feeling Heavenly (Larry W. Jones 04/07/2003) (song#1319)


Heavenly, I’m feeling heavenly
And I hardly know what words to speak
And unconditionally
I’m feeling heavenly
Like Mount Haleakala at it’s peak

Heavenly, I’m feeling heavenly
I haven’t had a care for almost a week
Island love is flowing even as we speak
I’m feeling heavenly
When you and I are dancing cheek to cheek

Yes, I love to climb Mount Haleakala
It’s such a heavenly peak
But even if the heavens had no bars
Even if I climbed to the stars
It would be for your love that I seek

Heavenly, I’m feeling heavenly
I haven’t had a care for almost a week
Island love is flowing even as we speak
I’m feeling heavenly
When you and I are dancing cheek to cheek

Island love is flowing even as we speak
I’m feeling heavenly
When you and I are dancing cheek to cheek



Instrumental Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1320)


I never thought that I would fall
In love until I heard that call
Hawaii called and now my heart really sings
My heart is getting instrumental over you

I never thought that I would see this day
But now my mental attitude is bright to stay
Once I felt sentimental through and through
Now my heart is getting instrumental over you

I never thought true love would come my way
Until I found your sweet love down by the bay
You played so gentle on my heart strings, it’s true
My heart is getting instrumental over you

Sometimes I thought that love never affected me
Those Maui chimes came around so perfectly
It must have been transcendental from the blue
My heart is getting instrumental over you

I never thought that I would see this day
I never thought true love would come my way
Once I felt sentimental through and through
Now my heart is getting instrumental over you
My heart is getting instrumental over you



I’m In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1321)


Every day I’m happy
I’ve said goodbye to the blues
I whistle and my finger’s snappy
I’m in paradise since I met you

I don’t mind the tropic rain
I’ve got everything to gain
Rainbows when the sun is shining too
I’m in paradise since I met you

Every day is dreamy
I know why the tropic day is steamy
You’re the topic of my talk, it’s true
I’m in paradise since I met you

I have a sunny disposition
My island honey knows my condition
Here in Hawaii my dream came true
I’m in paradise since I met you

Oh yeah, I’m in paradise since I met you



Stars Of Love (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1322)


We found the tropic moon was shining bright
Your kiss was a line from a love song to recite
When stars of love filled the island sky last night

We were in Hawaii where our love had begun
Your eyes reflected the moon instead of the sun
When stars of love filled the island sky last night

I always knew that in Hawaii dreams came true
In the velvet blue it seems like heaven too
A place of dreams with island guitars
A place that beams with tropic moon and stars

As we danced to the strings I held you tight
The way we romanced still rings with delight
When stars of love filled the island sky last night



Dashed Upon The Reef (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1323)


It was a long, slow kiss, it was bliss
But it led to deep remiss
It was a winsome smile, one to beguile
But it lasted only for a while

It was a heart felt thing, an island fling
The very best of spring
But it was only a token, just words spoken
Now my heart is broken over you

I remember the moon, it was almost June
And I remember you said you loved me too
And it was way too soon, my heart was strewn
Dashed upon the reef because of you

Our love was like a song, all night long
But now I find myself alone
I thought you would really care, answer every prayer
Now love isn’t even in the air

I remember the moon, it was almost June
And I remember you said you loved me too
And it was way too soon, my heart was strewn
Dashed upon the reef because of you

It was way too soon, my heart was strewn
Dashed upon the reef because of you



Paddlin’ My Love (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1324)


Well, I’m puttin’ on my old straw hat
Untyin’ my canoe
Outrigger headin’ for the blue
I’m takin’ off my shirt
Donnin’ sunscreen so maybe it won’t hurt
I’m paddlin’ my love to you

You live just across the bay
And I heard you say you may
Be in love with me too
This old boat will float, so take note
That’s all she wrote, I love you too
I’m paddlin’ my love to you

I hope this is class, the bay is smooth as glass
Nothing can surpass my love for you
Well, I’m puttin’ on my old straw hat
Untyin’ my canoe
I’m paddlin’ my love to you

Well, I’m puttin’ on my old straw hat
Untyin’ my canoe
I’m paddlin’ my love to you



Just Whenever (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1325)


Whenever you find yourself alone
Whenever you feel you’re kinda blue
Whenever you feel that dreams have flown
Just whenever, I’ll be your love that’s true

Whenever you stop to think about me
You’ll know I’m doing the same thing too
Whenever I’m thinking of you
Just whenever, you’ll know my love is true

Whenever you feel that dreams have flown
Whenever you find yourself alone
Whenever you feel you’re kinda blue
Just whenever, I’ll be your love that’s true

Just whenever you feel alone, like an island in the stream
That’s the time I’ll make it known that you’re still my dream

Whenever you stop to think about me
You’ll know I’m doing the same thing too
Whenever I’m thinking of you
Just whenever, you’ll know my love is true



Pretty Wahini’s Arms (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1326)


As I was strollin’ in the sand
In the sand, strollin’ in the sand
I met a pretty wahini, tall and tanned
And we romanced under the tropic moon

A pretty wahini was my delight
My delight, she was my delight
A pretty wahini was my delight
As we romanced under the tropic moon

I was entranced by a pretty wahini’s arms
She had island charms, lips that kept mine warm
I was entranced by a pretty wahini’s arms
And we romanced under the tropic moon

A pretty wahini was my delight
My delight, she was my delight
A pretty wahini was my delight
As we romanced under the tropic moon

I was entranced by a pretty wahini’s arms
She had island charms, lips that kept mine warm
I was entranced by a pretty wahini’s arms
And we romanced under the tropic moon



Lonesome Island Cowboy Song (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1327)

The other morning I got the warning
Before long I would be on my own
Before long I would be singing
A lonesome island cowboy song

Island baby, I love you true
I don’t remember doin’ no wrong
Island baby, I don’t wanna sing to you
A lonesome island cowboy song

The other night I was feelin’ fine
But the feelin’ didn’t last too long
Now you have to hear this song of mine
A lonesome island cowboy song

Island baby, I love you true
I don’t remember doin’ no wrong
Island baby, I don’t wanna sing to you
A lonesome island cowboy song

Island baby, please don’t make me blue
I’d rather sing sweet island kiho’alu
But I guess my heart will sing along
A lonesome island cowboy song



Just Pretend (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1328)


If you could just pretend
You could make believe that I love you
And when I just pretend
I make believe that you love me too

It’s a mind game, but still the same
Peace of mind will be there when
We just pretend

Couldn’t you just pretend
That I’m kissing your lips
I know when I just pretend
Daylight goes into eclipse

If you could just pretend
That we were in Hawaii blue
Then I could just pretend
That I was with you too

It’s a mind game, but still the same
Peace of mind will be there when
We just pretend

I believe if we just pretend
It would relieve this pain in time
And if we just pretend long enough
I wouldn’t have to make believe
That you’re really mine



Rainbows From Heaven (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1329)


After every tropic rain, the sun paints
Rainbows from heaven
Every island knows that every tropic rain brings
Rainbows from heaven

When you see the tropic rain, be happy, I am told
Don’t turn your pockets inside out
They might hold a pot of gold

With rainbow gold you can buy
A sunny day and a fragrant flower lei
And happiness, I am told
Will come your way where palm trees sway

When you see the tropic rain, be happy, I am told
Don’t turn your pockets inside out
They might hold a pot of gold

So, when you see the tropic rain
On your island in the sea
Rainbows from heaven will come again
Rainbows for you and me



There Are Islands (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1330)


There are islands that bring us happiness
There are islands where dreams come true
There are islands where love is blessed
Like the island love of me and you

There are islands filled with Aloha meaning
That ohana love can only see
And the islands where love is convening
Are the isles of love with you and me

There are islands where love grows very strong
There are islands where love is what you sing along
There are some where you can feel right at home
And these are the islands of love where we belong

There are islands filled with Aloha meaning
That ohana love can only see
And the islands where love is convening
Are the isles of love with you and me

There are islands where love grows very strong
There are islands where love is what you sing along
There are some where you can feel right at home
And these are the islands of love where we belong



Such Simple Things (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1331)


A feast of fish and poi and luau dances
An outrigger ride to where romance is
Hangin’ ten off the surfboard, takin’ chances
Such simple things remind me of you

A plinking ukulele at the outdoor market
Those strumming guitars on the beach on a blanket
That shooting star that looked just like a rocket
Such simple things remind me of you

I came, you saw, you conquered my heart
Remember, I tripped and upset the pineapple cart
I had to apologize from the very start
Such simple things remind me of you

I bought you a flower lei
And discovered you were a hula dancer
We strolled down by the bay
And just holding hands told the answer

How bittersweet it is, but oh, so true
Such simple things remind me of you
How these dreams come back so strong when I’m missing you
Such simple things remind me of you
Such simple things remind me of you



A Splendid Time (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1332)


Strolling the beach at Waikiki and feeling the breeze
It was a splendid time

Mahalo for the memories
Of lovely yellow moons, soft island guitar tunes
And outrigger rides and poi and rice and even that monsoon
It was a splendid time

Do you remember that luau party
When we ate the taro roots and feasted hearty
I sang a song, the band played along and you called me smarty
It was a splendid time

Mahalo for the memories
Of islands in the sun, sunburns overdone
At times we had our mistakes, but we could have made even more
Mahalo for the memories

Mahalo for the memories
Of dances in the moonlight, glances that were just right
And laughter when we didn’t do things right
Mahalo for the memories

Now we can both look back
To those island days
And that little thatched roof shack
Memories like those, for love will never lack
Mahalo for the memories
It was a splendid time
Mahalo for the memories



Islands To The Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/08/2003) (song#1333)


You invited me to your island
It was in the month of June
I remember the moon and sand
And how my heart began to swoon
Islands to the moon!

You invited me to the luau
At a place down by the bay
You even showed me how
Aloha is the island way

You invited me to a party
With music of soft guitars
Aloha there was kind and hearty
Under all those tropic stars
Islands to the moon!

You invited me to an island dance
There by the silver sea
There you put me in a trance
And captured the very heart of me

You invited me to a rainbow
And showed me the pot of gold
You never let my heart go
Love like yours was never told

You invited me to your prison chamber
And that was the end of me
You locked me deep within your heart
And then you threw away the key
Islands to the moon!



Can’t Resist A Lover’s Isle (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1334)


There on a lover’s isle
I’m gonna make you smile
In old Lahaina town
If you think you can escape
Better get your heart in better shape
Before the sun goes down

There beneath the tropic moon, tropic moon
Where all the island lovers swoon
It will get your heart in tune

You might think you need no bliss
But you haven’t tasted my best kiss
Anyway, anyway you just can’t
Can’t resist a lover’s isle
There in old Lahaina town
After the sun goes down
Anyway, anyway you just can’t
Can’t resist a lover’s isle
You just can’t resist it
There in old Lahaina town
After the sun goes down

There’s no way to resist a lover’s isle
That’s why I know I can make you smile
That island breeze will melt your heart
You don’t have a chance once it starts
When you’re in my arms, you won’t turn around
There on a lover’s isle in old Lahaina town

There on a lover’s isle
I’m gonna make you smile
In old Lahaina town
If you think you can escape
Better get your heart in better shape
Before the sun goes down
I’m gonna make you smile
In old Lahaina town



Road Travelin’ Blues (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1335)


The roads that we have traveled
Have led us far away from our island home
The roads that we have traveled
Have brought us the world
But we still feel alone
We’ve got road travelin’ blues

Sometimes the days are sunny
Sometimes dreary
We’re on the road for money
But we sure get weary
Playin’ gigs in Frisco
Tell me, where did this go
Roads have brought us the world
But we still feel alone
We’ve got road travelin’ blues

Home is where the heart lies
Sunny isles and blue skies
Islands in the sun and paradise

Sometimes the nights are cold
Sometimes oversold
We’re on the road for gold
But it’s sure getting old
Playin’ island songs in Boston
The road leads next to Austin
Roads have brought us the world
But we still feel alone
We’ve got road travelin’ blues

Home is where the heart lies
Sunny isles and blue skies
Islands in the sun and paradise

Home is where the heart lies
Sunny isles and blue skies
Islands in the sun and paradise



Manoa Valley Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1336)


In Manoa valley, valley so fine
There lives my dear one, dear one of mine
Dear one of mine, yes, dear one of mine
In Manoa valley, valley so fine

Islands have sunshine, oceans are blue
Aloha is how I say I love you
I say I love you, dear, I say I love you
Aloha is how I say I love you

I sing you this song now, sweetheart of mine
In Manoa valley, valley so fine
Please answer yes, dear, sweetheart of mine
In Manoa valley, please, will you be mine

Islands have sunshine, oceans are blue
Aloha is how I say I love you
I say I love you, dear, I say I love you
Aloha is how I say I love you

I sing this song now, sweetheart of mine
In Manoa valley, valley so fine
Please answer yes, dear, sweetheart of mine
In Manoa valley, please, will you be mine



The Island Love Bug (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1337)

There’s a lot of songs about the isles of love
Islands in the oceans are what dreams are of
There’s an island love bug busy as a bee
And I think a slug from the bug just got to me

Island love is in the oceans all around
Island love is in emotions I have found
Love is in the air where the tradewinds blow
And my love is waiting there for me, I know

I heard about an island boy from old Maui
He’s in love with a girl makin’ Maui wowie
The island love bug is busy in old Lahaina town
Love is in the air before the sun goes down

Island love is in the oceans all around
Island love is in emotions I have found
Love is in the air where the tradewinds blow
And my love is waiting there for me, I know

A wahini did the hula at at a luau dance
Love was on the menu like an island trance
Soon they were eatin’ lots of fish and poi
The island love bug brought them lots of joy

In Hawaii or Tahiti or wherever you may go
Love is in the air where the tradewinds blow
The isles of love are where love is true
I know for sure, ’cause I’m in love with you

There’s a lot of songs about the isles of love
Islands in the oceans are what dreams are of
The isles of love are where love is true
I know for sure, ’cause I’m in love with you
Blame it on the island love bug



Love Me, Don’t Leave Me (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1338)


Love me, don’t leave me, don’t leave me lonely
You know it would grieve me to lose you only
I don’t want to be a lonely island in the stream
You know you’re my island love, my only dream

Please don’t say Aloha if it just means goodbye
No day is the right day for making me cry
Love me, don’t leave me wondering why
Why love drifted away from paradise

Love me, don’t leave me wondering why
Why love disappeared from the tradewinds that sigh

No one else could I love, I don’t want to be blue
No one else could I love, I love only you
Love me, don’t leave me wondering why
Why love disappeared from the tradewinds that sigh

Please don’t say Aloha if it just means goodbye
No day is the right day for making me cry
Love me, don’t leave me wondering why
Why love drifted away from paradise



Love Of The Islands (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1339)

Love of the islands, love of my life
Tradewinds have whispered your love song to me
Love of the islands, love of my life
You made love grow strong here by the sea

Your love I have won, we’ll nere be apart
Forever will we sing love songs from the heart
Love of my arms, love of my heart
Our love is forever, never to part

Love of the islands, love of my life
Tradewinds have whispered your love song to me

Your love I have won, we’ll nere be apart
Forever will we sing love songs from the heart
Love of my arms, love of my heart
Our love is forever, never to part
Love of the islands, love of my heart



Your Love Was Aloha (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1340)


Your love was Aloha, just like a song
Like an Aloha love song in my heart
Never before did my heart feel love so strong

Your love was Aloha, just like a song
Like an Aloha love song in my heart
Music like ours could never go wrong

I remember back when, not long ago
How long had it been, I really don’t know
When I last heard a song that set my heart aglow

I thought that loneliness was the only thing
That came all year long, even in spring
Now my heart is strong ’cause you made it sing

Your love was Aloha, just like a song
Like an Aloha love song in my heart
Never before did my heart feel love so strong

Your love was Aloha, just like a song
Like an Aloha love song in my heart
Music like ours could never go wrong
Your love was Aloha, just like a song



Lonesome Lonely Road (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1341)


Have you ever felt alone
Then you know how I feel only
Has your heart ever felt a heavy load
Like you’re traveling a lonesome lonely road

Are you an island in the stream
Alone in an ocean full of dreams
Darling, can’t you see what it means
To have your love be here with me

I beg you to open wide your heart
See if you can find a place inside
Where my love could find a brand new start
A place where love could stem this lonely tide

I beg you to be understanding
My heart needs a place that’s smooth for landing
It’s been a lonesome lonely road

I beg you to open wide your heart
See if you can find a place inside
Where my love could find a brand new start
A place where love could stem this lonely tide

I beg you to be understanding
My heart needs a place that’s smooth for landing
It’s been a lonesome lonely road



Lovers, Wise Men And Fools (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1342)


Lovers, wise men and fools
Only two could ever go together
Wise men never fall in love
The others brave all stormy weather

Lovers, wise men and fools
Only two could ever taste it
Wise men always waste it
The others chase their dreams into the blue
Just like I’m chasing dreams of you

Love can be a roller coaster ride
Only two can sit there side by side
Wise men could never take the stride
Come, let’s fall in love tonight

Love is just a fifty fifty chance
Only two can feel the sweet romance
Wise men just tap their feet, they never dance
Foolishly, I fell in love with you at first glance

Lovers, wise men and fools
Only two could ever go together
Wise men never fall in love
The others brave all stormy weather

Love can be a roller coaster ride
Only two can sit there side by side
Wise men could never take the stride
Come, let’s fall in love tonight

Wise men could never take the stride
Come, let’s fall in love tonight



My Island Sweetheart (Larry W. Jones 04/09/2003) (song#1343)


My island sweetheart says she loves me
My island sweetheart says she needs me
That girl of mine sure has won my heart
For her I pine whenever we’re apart

My island sweetheart says she gets lonely
Any time I’m not beside her only
That island girl knows how to do things right
She taught me how to hug and kiss and hold her tight

I always want to please her
Her island love could thaw a freezer
I let her know that she’s the most
That’s why I always hold her close
My island sweetheart is always there
For our sweet love to forever share

My island sweetheart says she gets lonely
Any time I’m not beside her only
That island girl knows how to do things right
She taught me how to hug and kiss and hold her tight

I let her know that she’s the most
That’s why I always hold her close
My island sweetheart is always there
For our sweet love to forever share



Dancing Stone Of Puna (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2003) (song#1344)


Oh Hopoe, dancing stone of Puna
You move back and forth with the wind
Oh Hopoe, dancing stone of Puna
Rocking by the seaside without end

On Hawaii, Pele was impatient for her dream lover
Her Lohiau ipo was delaying in beautiful Kauai
Pele’s sister, Hiiaka, was to bring him over
Forty days was all the journey was to be

Hopoe taught Hiiaka all the graceful ancient hulas
Hopoe made the fragrant lehua garland leis
Pele betrayed her pledge to never harm Hopoe
The graceful friend who taught Hiiaka hula ways

Yellow is the smoke of Ka-lua, turning red impatiently
Near to the loved one of Hiiaka, Hopoe by the sea
More than forty days was the journey of Hiiaka
Pele’s fire all the way from Kauai could be seen

Hopoe wore the most fragrant lehua garland leis
She wore the finest skirt woven from lauhala leaves
Pele’s fire was the final hurt for Hopoe on that day
As Hopoe danced the hula dance of death by the sea

Now Hopoe is a balanced rock that dances to the music
Of the eternally moving rhythm of the surf and sea
The sea of Lanakiku holds the tears of Hiiaka
While her aikane friend Hopoe dances endlessly

Oh Hopoe, dancing stone of Puna
You move back and forth with the wind
Oh Hopoe, dancing stone of Puna
Rocking by the seaside without end



Old Nawiliwili Harbor (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2003) (song#1345)


In old Nawiliwili harbor, in old Kauai
The little grass cottages there line the sea
Every day and every night it’s calling me
The breeze of old Nawiliwili harbor in old Kauai

The steady tradewinds are blowing there
The scent of lehua blossoms fills the air
Old Nawiliwili harbor is my dear home
Back to old Kauai and that harbor I must now roam

There, island life is slower, Aloha sweet as wine
In old Nawiliwili harbor, I have spent some time
There, the strings of the ukulele and guitars sound
Back to old Nawiliwili harbor I now am bound

In the balmy nights, the fireflies and the yellow moon
The palm trees swaying in the breeze like a hula dance
Brings thoughts of love just like an island tune
And filled my dreams like being in a lover’s trance

There, island life is slower, Aloha sweet as wine
In old Nawiliwili harbor, I have spent some time
There, the strings of the ukulele and guitars sound
Back to old Nawiliwili harbor I now am bound
Back to old Nawiliwili harbor
I now am bound



Tradewinds In My Heart (Larry W. Jones 04/10/2003) (song#1346)


There’s tradewinds in my heart, and wings upon my feet
From this mainland I’ll depart for islands there to greet
Where the limit of the sea isn’t hindered by the land
There’s tradewinds in my heart from the shores of island sand

Soon I’ll be leaving from the mainland and this land of woe
Sailing on the evening tide so I can stand where breezes blow
Lift the foresail high and steer the ship toward sunny isles
There’s tradewinds in my heart blowing me to different styles

I already hear the winds of trade, see the wings of gulls
The time is near for me to sail away from cities dull
The capstan song of anchor chain hoisting from the bay
There’s tradewinds in my heart that will never go away

Soon I’ll be leaving from the mainland and this land of woe
Sailing on the evening tide so I can stand where breezes blow
Lift the foresail high and steer the ship toward sunny isles
There’s tradewinds in my heart blowing me to different styles

I already hear the winds of trade, see the wings of gulls
The time is near for me to sail away from cities dull
The capstan song of anchor chain hoisting from the bay
There’s tradewinds in my heart that will never go away
There’s tradewinds in my heart, and wings upon my feet



Maka Nani Ku’u Aloha (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1347)


Maka nani, Ku’u aloha, beautiful eyes, my love
Heaven has sent you in an angel’s disguise
You have come to me from the realms above
Beautiful eyes, my love, here in paradise

Maka nani, Ku’u aloha, beautiful eyes, my love
You are the one my heart has been dreaming of
Eyes that laugh for the heart of mortal men to entice
Beautiful eyes, my love, here in paradise

So warming is the morning sun
As warm as your love that’s in the air
May our love never be undone
As endless as the beauty everywhere

Maka nani, Ku’u aloha, beautiful eyes, my love
My dream came true, my only love is you
You are to me everything that love supplies
Beautiful eyes, my love, here in paradise



Instrumental You (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1348)


Instrumental you
Moonbeams of love are coming through
My heart is singing island tunes
Because of instrumental you

Instrumental you
Our love is sealed with every kiss
I yield to tenderness
My heart is instrumental for you too

Tradewind breezes gently call
With songs intently to recall
The words of love I hear from you
From instrumental you

Instrumental you
Your music sets the mood
Dreams of island love are true
Because of instrumental you

Instrumental you
Moonbeams of love are coming through
My heart is singing island tunes
Because of instrumental you



Island Love And You (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1349)


Island love and you
Heavenly they are, dreams that came from isles afar
How these dreams came true, I have no clue
Island love and you

Island love and you
Life is now no longer blue, the sun is shining through
Each day is fresh just like the dew
Because of island love and you

When I think of how your love came to me
I still wonder how it came to be
You were like a song of love complete with rhyme
A sarong replete with sweetest wine

Island love and you
I see the love that’s in your eyes
I see that dreams can still come true
Island love and you in paradise



One Island Song (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1350)


One island song, the dance lasted long, and love sure was blind
One island song, and before too long, a love that wasn’t mine
One island love, words that were spoken
One island song, played on heartstrings that were broken

May I remind, remind you of all those guitars
Songs of island love so entwined with the stars
May I remind, remind you of all those words
Words of love by which my heart was stirred
May I remind, remind you of that lovely day
That day we vowed our love would forever stay
You promised that our love would be the lasting kind
May I remind, remind you that love sure was blind

My dreams were blue, my life was too, and then you came
I loved you true, you loved me too, so who’s to blame

One island song, the dance lasted long, and love sure was blind
One island song, and before too long, a love that wasn’t mine
One island love, words that were spoken
One island song, played on heartstrings that were broken
One island song, one island song of broken love



My Disposition (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1351)


My disposition is for love, just because you’re here
It’s not funny, the island’s sunny, so my disposition’s for love
When you’re near, even tradewinds seem to hear
My funny heartbeat, so loud and clear, conditioned for love

Stars are in my eyes, but heaven is there in yours
Here in this paradise, love is on the shores
Love has found ignition, there’s no opposition
My heart is conditioned, it’s dispositioned for love

Don’t think about the weather
There’s no doubt when we’re together
We’re just like those birds of a feather
Island heather is the flower of our love

This is no mere charade, it can’t rain on our parade
It’s not funny, the island’s sunny, so my disposition’s for love
When you’re near, even tradewinds seem to hear
My funny heartbeat, so loud and clear, conditioned for love
My composition, my condition, my disposition is for love



For I’m A Maui Boy (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1352)


As I strolled through the sand of old Maui
As I strolled through the sand one day
I spied a young man out in the sea
Riding the waves that would form in the bay

I said, Maui boy, surfing’s a hard life of stroking
For such a few rides on that wave as it curls
He said to me, haole, you must be joking
I’m surfing these waves for that Maui girl

I can play the ukulele, I can sing island songs
For I’m a Maui boy and Maui’s my home
I’ve been surfing these waves all my life long
And girls of old Maui like boys who are strong

I said, Maui boy, when you grow to a man
Will she still be here in this island sand
He said to me, haole, you don’t understand
For I’m a Maui boy and my future is grand

I can play the ukulele, I can sing island songs
For I’m a Maui boy and Maui’s my home
I’ll be here still surfing when you are long gone
And that Maui girl I’ll marry and never will roam

I can play the ukulele, I can sing island songs
For I’m a Maui boy and Maui’s my home
For I’m a Maui boy and Maui’s my home



Thoughts In The Night (Larry W. Jones 04/15/2003) (song#1353)


The soft harbor lights seem to call to me there
My thoughts in the night mean I still for you care
The soft harbor lights fade away in velvet blue
And again I dream a dream of you

My thoughts in the night go on forever without end
I feel you in my arms and my heart can never mend
Our love is just the same as the day it was brand new
And again I dream a dream of you

Then from the lovers’ walk, island music comes along
We dance again to that romancing love refrain
You’re like a favorite chorus, the sweetest island song
And I dream of you again

My thoughts in the night are the way it always starts
Love they have brought, but there’s pain in my heart
In the day or in the night, harbor lights are colored blue
And again I dream a dream of you

The soft harbor lights seem to call to me there
My thoughts in the night mean I still for you care
The soft harbor lights fade away in velvet blue
And again I dream a dream of you



That’s The Island Of Love (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2003) (song#1354)



You’ve got to swoon a lot, romance under the moon a lot
And let your dreams come true a lot
That’s the beauty of, that’s the island of love

You’ve got to stroll a spot, share your deepest soul and thought
Until the rainbows shine a lot
That’s the beauty of, that’s the island of love

Island love will always be true to us
Not like the world and all it’s harms
Island love will never be blue for us
As long as you enchant me with your charms

You’ve got to dance a lot , romance a lot
Just give love a chance a lot
That’s the beauty of, that’s the island of love

That’s the beauty of, that’s the island of love
That’s the beauty of, that’s the island of love
That’s the beauty of
That’s the island of love



Inside My Lonely Dreams (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2003) (song#1355)


Old friends of mine keep coming to my door
They say I’m not the lively guy I was before
I just tell them that it’s not the way it seems
But then I lock myself inside my lonely dreams

He’s out there strolling with my island baby
The love he’s stolen was my future maybe
That day she left me standing on the shore
Was the day my dreams turned lonely evermore

Now, on this sunny island, there’s no sunshine
My island honey is no longer mine
Oh, island baby, don’t linger ‘neath those moonbeams
Cause I don’t want to lock myself inside my lonely dreams

Now, on this sunny island, there’s no sunshine
My island honey is no longer mine
Oh, island baby, don’t linger ‘neath those moonbeams
Cause I don’t want to lock myself inside my lonely dreams



I’m Searching (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2003) (song#1356)


I’m searching after perfect islands
Perfect islands in the stream
I’m searching after perfect islands
But perfect things are just a dream

I’m searching after clouds with silver linings
Clouds with silver linings in the sky
I’m searching after clouds with silver linings
But sometimes I have to ask myself the reason why

Perfect islands and clouds with silver linings
Are dreams that I have searched for endlessly
Perfect islands and clouds with silver linings
Are schemes that left me in the lurch continually

Some guys have found their rainbow
Some have found that pot of gold
My cries are like the wind blows
I’m searching for a dream that I can’t hold



My Maui Island Rose (Larry W. Jones 04/16/2003) (song#1357)


My Maui island rose, stop your weeping
I’ll return again to your sunny isle
When the moon is full, you’ll be sleeping
So, dream of me but for a little while

Now, dry your polynesian eyes and smile
No more tears should now arise
Let me kiss your lips and hold you for awhile
Now, my Maui island rose, Aloha, goodbye

The moon is getting full and up the sky is creeping
Soon I’ll say goodbye and hope that you’re not weeping

Now, dry your polynesian eyes and smile
No more tears should now arise
Let me kiss your lips and hold you for awhile
Now, my Maui island rose, Aloha, goodbye



Some Way, Some Day (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1358)


Some way, I don’t know just how
Some day, if my dreams will allow
My love will come to me some way
My dreams will come true some day

That day, so thrilling it will be
That way, love will be fulfilling for me
I will whisper Aloha under a tropic moon
Love will stir her heart like an island tune

Some way, though isles of love are far away
Some day, there where palm trees gently sway
I will whisper Aloha and steal a kiss or two
Some day the love of my dreams will come true

Some way, I will find a girl to call my own
Some day, an island of love will be my home
I will whisper Aloha the moment we meet
Some day I will find my island love so sweet

Some way, though isles of love are far away
Some day, there where palm trees gently sway
I will whisper Aloha and steal a kiss or two
Some day the love of my dreams will come true



A Nice Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1359)


Holding gentle hands in the twilight
Underneath a velvet starlit sky
A nice dream anyone can pursue
And one that might one day come true

Strolling in the sand in paradise
Dancing to an island band would be so nice
A nice dream anyone can pursue
And one that might one day come true

Just think of someone waiting on that island shore
The two of you would be equating
To the dreams of love that all are waiting for

Falling in love with someone who loves you
Calling from isles afar to a wedding vow
A nice dream anyone can pursue
And one that might come true right now



With Aloha Greeting (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1360)


With Aloha greeting, the tradewinds sing
The breezes bring an island song with every word
With Aloha greeting, the tradewinds sing
It’s the sweetest island music ever heard

As if by chance, it’s the time for romance
I can hear the waves that break upon the reef
On the waters of the bay, soft moonlight comes to play
Then I awake from such a trance
I take your gentle hand and there’s no grief
Even though it’s just another mainland cloudy day

You smile at me and the tradewinds sing
The breezes bring an island song with every word
You smile at me and the tradewinds sing
It’s the sweetest island music ever heard

With Aloha greeting, the music starts
I hold your gentle hand and breezes sigh
I can feel the beating of our hearts
And again I drift away in dreams to paradise



I Found A Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1361)


Finally, an island love has come my way
Lonely days and nights have gone away
Finally, I found a dream that came to stay

Finally, the skies above are truly blue
My whole life is now renewed
When finally I looked at you

I found a dream that I can stroll with
Underneath that moon above
I found a dream I can share my soul with
That dream is you, my love

You smiled, and finally the day had come
You’re the love that dreams come from
Lonely days and nights have gone away
Finally, I found a dream that came to stay

I found a dream that I can stroll with
Underneath that moon above
I found a dream I can share my soul with
That dream is you, my love



Always That Tropical Moon (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1362)


Why are the tradewinds blowin’ and goin’ along
What gets a heart glowin’ and knowin’ a song
It’s the season to swoon, it’s the month of June
And it’s always that tropical moon

What makes a girl and a boy find so much joy
Why does the luau somehow always serve fish and poi
It’s why lovers will swoon to that steel guitar tune
And it’s always that tropical moon

Stop and look and listen, a book of love you might be missin’
Just say it, just play it, that Aloha way it is

Birds of paradise, songs that sound so nice
Palm trees swaying in the breeze, the deep blue seas
It’s why you and I will soon be married here this June
And it’s always that tropical moon



Breaking Like The Waves (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1363)


Don’t fall for island love
It’s just a dream, you see
Don’t fall for island love
It will play you for the fool
It’s just a dream that’s in the air
An empty fantasy
It’s just someone who thinks they’re cool
Someone breaking every rule

I fell for island love underneath that moon above
I thought that I was wise, but it wasn’t paradise
I fell for island love there by that peaceful sea
Now pieces of my heart are breaking
Breaking like the waves upon the reef

Oh, pieces of my heart are breaking like the waves upon the reef

Don’t fall for island love
It’s just a dream, you see
Don’t fall for island love
It will play you for the fool
It’s just a dream that’s in the air

I fell for island love underneath that moon above
I thought that I was wise, but it wasn’t paradise
I fell for island love there by that peaceful sea
Now pieces of my heart are breaking
Breaking like the waves upon the reef

Oh, pieces of my heart are breaking like the waves upon the reef



In Dreams I’ll Pretend (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1364)


In dreams I’ve heard that island guitar sound
I heard it once in old Lahaina town
It still haunts my mind so easily
That song of love down by the sea

In dreams I’ve heard that island guitar sound
So, in dreams I’ll pretend that she’s still around

It seems that all my dreams
Are still of her and island themes
And they still bring her so close to me
When will these dreams depart and set me free

I still remember every line
The ones that said that she’d be mine
Always be mine for evermore
I guess that’s what dreams are for

In dreams I’ve heard that island guitar sound
So, in dreams I’ll pretend that she’s still around



Why The Roses Sigh (Larry W. Jones 04/17/2003) (song#1365)


Kauai is the garden isle
A place where island roses grow
And you are there to make me smile
While our love grows and grows

On Kauai, in old Hanalei
There on the tropic shore
A new love has come to say
Aloha, I love you more and more

Love on Kauai is the reason why
Island roses look so fine
Your love is why the roses sigh
And why I’m happy that you’re mine

Kauai is the garden isle where roses are in style
For your love I’d stroll a mile just to see your smile

Love on Kauai is the reason why
Island roses look so fine
Your love is why the roses sigh
And why I’m happy that you’re mine



If Only (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1366)


I could wax up my surfing board
Make island music with an uli uli goard
I could weave a flower lei
Take a stroll down by the bay
Leave my footprints in the sand
If only I were an island man

I could paddle my canoe
Do a hula straddle too
I could sing an island love refrain
Stomp out fires and feel no pain
Play with a slack key guitar band
If only I were an island man

I might could even tell you why
They call this place a paradise
Why the tides go in and out
What island love is all about
I could get me a darker tan
If only I were an island man

I wouldn’t be just a hapa haole
I could be a true kanaka maoli
I could be where waves kiss the shore
Where love I miss is at my door
Where dreams come true in island sand
If only I were an island man



Tropical Serenade (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1367)


Standing here in island sand
The song I hear is so topical
The topic is so tropical, and
When I feel your gentle hand
And the music that it made
My heart is singing with a tropical serenade

That big yellow moon is up above
The mood is mellow and we’re in love
This night is the one we were dreaming of
Oh, may such a sweet dream never fade
For this moment I would never trade
My heart is singing with a tropical serenade

Come, let us stroll down by the bay
Let’s trade our cares for love that’s new
Love is on the winds of trade
Let’s make all our dreams come true

Standing here in island sand
The song I hear is so topical
The topic is so tropical, and
When I feel your gentle hand
And the music that it made
My heart is singing with a tropical serenade



Somewhere That Dreams Go (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1368)


Up there, somewhere that dreams go
Lovers sigh
Up there, I wish that I could go
Where lovers never cry

Up there, somewhere that dreams go
My dreams are there too
Somewhere up there, there’s a dream
A dream of me and you

Some fine day I’ll be where they are
A star will be there to guide me
Love will come in drops like sugar cane
Up there, where hearts have no pain
A true love will be here inside me

Up there, somewhere that dreams go
There’s a paradise
A place where birds of paradise fly
When, oh when will it be mine

Up there, somewhere that dreams go
There’s a paradise
A place where birds of paradise fly
When, oh when will it be mine
When will paradise be mine



Moonlight Canoe Ride (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1369)


Like a yellow brick road is the moonlight
That shimmers tonight on the bay
And a mellow song flows in the twilight
From the island guitars as they play

Let’s take a moonlight canoe ride on the bay
Make all our cares go away
We’ll paddle along with a song
We’ll listen to those steel guitars
And ukuleles under the stars
The night is young and our love is strong

Let’s take a moonlight canoe ride on the bay
Through the lagoon, under moonbeams
Let’s follow that yellow brick road of delight
And paddle our canoe full of dreams

Let’s take a moonlight canoe ride on the bay
A lovely canoe ride on the bay
A love is for two, like our canoe
Let’s take a moonlight canoe ride on the bay



Stay, Or Just Go Away (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1370)


Stay, or just go away
A broken heart wasn’t meant for me
A heart that won’t stay is as restless as the sea
So, I’ll just say stay, or just go away

Stay, or just go away
When it comes to love, there can’t be only one dove
Why pretend, true love can’t be just friends
So, I’d rather you stay, or just go away

And please, don’t offer just your arms
Without all your other charms
Don’t play with my heart or it will surely break
Is that smile on your face
Just leading me on to false alarms
Oh, that would be such a mistake

And if I should fall to a false siren call
My love would be lost and not find it’s way
I need all your love, you see, or nothing at all
So, I’ll just say stay, or just go away



No Other Than You (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1371)


Other than you, I have no love
For you are my only love
Our dream is the only one I knew
Other than you, I have no love

Strolling the island sand at night
Hoping you’ll come to me
To stroll the island sand with me
But the night doesn’t hear my plea

Oh, hasten home
To me, please hurry home
Oh, set my heart free
Free my heart from doubt

I would still fly to your arms
Here on the isle, let our love stay
I just need to hear you say
Aloha, other than you, I have no love
For you are my only love

Strolling the island sand at night
Hoping you’ll come to me
To stroll the island sand with me
But the night doesn’t hear my plea

Other than you, I have no love
For you are my only love
Our dream is the only one I knew
Other than you, I have no love



Only You (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1372)


If I find disturbance on my mind
And I’m feelin’ blue
I know just where I can find
Sympathy and love that’s true
Who could it be
Only you

If this world has done me wrong
Who’s the friend I need
Who takes my cares away like island songs
Who’s my island love indeed
The one who will carry on
Only you

Yes, it’s you, only you could play the part
Only you could mend a dream that falls apart
Only you could ease my mind
And share such love within your heart
Only you are like soft Maui chimes
Only you can bring the sun that shines

If this world has done me wrong
Who’s the friend I need
Who takes my cares away like island songs
Who’s my island love indeed
The one who will carry on
Yes, it’s only you
Only you



On The Ebbing Tide (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1373)


Drifting away on the ebbing tide
My love is departing today
I will miss her being by my side
Aloha meant goodbye to stay

The tide will take my tears far out to sea
The ebbing tide that I can’t hold
This time she’ll be apart from me
But my love for her will ‘nere grow cold

Even though we’re bound to drift apart
Even though it’s like a dream
She will always be here in my heart
Like a flowing tidal stream

And if dreams can ever come back true
Then time is still on my side
I’ll sail the same way she did too
And find my love on the ebbing tide

And if dreams can ever come back true
Then time is still on my side
I’ll sail the same way she did too
And find my love on the ebbing tide



Once Upon A Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1374)


Once upon a dream
An island girl from paradise
Held my hand and then it seemed
That I saw moonbeams in her eyes
Once upon a dream

Once upon an isle
We strolled under the stars awhile
We counted the ones that fell
Love had cast it’s spell, it seemed
Once upon a dream

Soft tradewinds caressed her hair
We laughed and made up silly schemes
I placed a flower in her hair
And we planned our future there
Once upon a dream

Once upon a dream
The nights were young and so were we
The world was ours to hold
But as the story’s told
Love once was here, it seemed
Once upon a dream



One Thing About (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1375)


One thing about the island weather
The same happy sun is in the sky
But the nighttime finds we’re not together
Your Aloha must have meant goodbye

One thing about the island sand
The waves still come to kiss the shore
And I’m still the same lonely island man
Just like I was the day before

Stars in the night are there as spies
They tell the world that you’re not here
I wonder if they realize
The pain in my heart and see my tears

Tomorrow will see another happy sun
To bless the isles of Hawaii blue
One thing about another day that’s done
I’ll still be a lonely island man without you



Heave That Anchor (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1376)


To old Lahaina town we’re bound this day
Heave that anchor from the bay
Heave away, heave ho
Heave that anchor and then we’ll go
To old Lahaina town

The Falls of Clyde is a sturdy old ship
To Lahaina town we’ll take a trip
Heave away, heave ho
Heave that anchor and then we’ll go
To old Lahaina town

Back to the isles of paradise we’re bound
No better place could there be found
Heave away, heave ho
Heave that anchor and then we’ll go
To old Lahaina town

When we get there, we’ll drink some rum
And on ukuleles we will strum
Heave away, heave ho
Heave that anchor and then we’ll go
To old Lahaina town

There’s plenty of girls with faces fair
Love is in the tradewind air
Heave away, heave ho
Heave that anchor and then we’ll go
To old Lahaina town



In Her Loving Arms (Larry W. Jones 04/18/2003) (song#1377)


Balancing against the rail, gazing at the sea
Thinking back before the sail, how she waved at me
I still can hear her lovely voice coming to descend
On my memory and heart, calling on the wind

The stars are burning holes in the velvet sky
Like the fire that’s burning in my heart as the day draws nigh
I wonder where she is tonight, over this blue sea
And does she see the same stars that’s shining down on me

Now the sun has come and my watch is finally done
I look to the west and try my best to see her there
Then I climb into my bunk and let the dream begin
I place a flower in her hair and I’m there with her again

Some day I will find my way, and I will return
To her island in the sea where my heart does yearn
I will hold her once again and I will be at home
In her loving arms and never more from her love will I roam
I will hold her once again and I will be at home
In her loving arms



Maui Girl On Hana Bay (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1378)


Down Maui way on the Hana Bay
The sun is shining like it won’t stop
I heard an island song while on my way
And I met a girl at a little shop

Now I’m glad to stay on the Hana Bay
That Maui girl has a hula sway
When the sun goes down, I head her way
To see my lovely Maui girl on Hana Bay

Songs of the islands are in the air
And you can feel the balmy island breeze
No other girl can quite compare
To my Maui girl dancing like the trees

Now I’m glad to stay on the Hana Bay
That Maui girl has a hula sway
When the sun goes down, I head her way
To see my lovely Maui girl on Hana Bay

On the Hana Bay, it’s quite a joy
When you feel Aloha and hear them say
Come to the luau for fish and poi
And bring your Maui girl on Hana Bay

Now I’m glad to stay on the Hana Bay
That Maui girl has a hula sway
When the sun goes down, I head her way
To see my lovely Maui girl on Hana Bay



Golden Dreams Girl (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1379)


Golden dreams turned out to be made of tin
Because every time I saw them then
My golden dreams would always go with the wind

I thought my heart would break from misery
Like golden dreams would break upon the reef
But then you came and solved the mystery
Of all the golden dreams that had turned to grief

You’re the girl from paradise
You saved my broken heart there on the shore
You’re the girl from paradise
For golden dreams, I couldn’t ask for more

True island love was oh, so hard to find
Dreams and reality were never intertwined
But in my golden dreams you came to mind

You’re the girl from paradise
You saved my broken heart there on the shore
You’re the girl from paradise
For golden dreams, I couldn’t ask for more



Twenty Degrees North (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1380)


Twenty degrees north latitude
And a hundred fifty five toward the west
There we’ll find a tropic moon
Where dreams come true and the sun is best

That’s where we’ll build a cottage for two
Cause that’s where I’m dreamin’ of
That’s where we’ll find ke Aloha attitude
And we’ll call Hawaii our isle of love

Close to the equator, that equates
To sunny days and skies of blue
Love won’t need some old translator
The island will know our Aloha love is true

Twenty degrees north latitude
And a hundred fifty five toward the west
There we’ll find a tropic moon
Where dreams come true and the sun is best

A little bit north and a lot more west
In the middle of the wide pacific sea
We will live and love on islands blessed
In a paradise made just for you and me



Dreaming Of The Last Time (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1381)


They say that dreaming is a past time
But right now I’m dreaming of the last time
I dreamed of you

They say that dreaming is a fantasy
But right now I’m dreaming of the ecstasy
That you could bring to me

They say that dreaming is a crazy thing
It just makes your mind a hazy thing
Like a crazy island fling

Have you ever strolled hand in hand
With a lovely girl in island sand
It’s a crazy fantasy, just a past time
To dream that you would ever be mine

They say that dreaming is a past time
But right now I’m dreaming of the last time
I dreamed of you
Right now I’m dreaming of the last time
I dreamed of you



My Love In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1382)


On the island when it’s twilight time
I see a golden glow begin to rise
But it’s not the full moon that looks so fine
It’s you, my love, my love in paradise

On the island when I buy a fragrant lei
And I have bought a few
The sweetest smell is not the flower tray
It’s the love I sense from you

When I feel refreshed and free
It’s not just the tradewind breeze
And when life feels like an island song
It’s just that you and I belong

It’s plain to see that when you’re near
I’m a happy man in Hawaii blue
And when you smile, it’s very clear
That dreams really do come true

On the island when it’s twilight time
I see a golden glow begin to rise
But it’s not the full moon that looks so fine
It’s you, my love, my love in paradise



Just A Fantasy Island (Larry W. Jones 04/19/2003) (song#1383)


It’s just a fantasy island
But it’s waiting there for you
It’s just a fantasy island
Somewhere just beyond the blue

Just make believe and you will see
What is waiting in the ocean
Just fantasize and dream with me
And you can feel the emotion

It’s just a fantasy island
A tropical splendor of sun and sand
It’s just a fantasy island
Where you’re my girl and I’m your man

Just make believe and love you’ll find
On tradewinds in the air
Just make believe and I won’t mind
If you find that you and I are there

It’s just a fantasy island
Somewhere just beyond the blue
It’s just a fantasy island
Where my dreams of you come true



Never Drift Away (Larry W. Jones 04/20/2003) (song#1384)


How long will I care for you
As long as the tides that come and go
I will be forever loving you
I just wanted you to know

I would grant all the things you wish
To me it would be no chore
My love will be like an overflowing dish
Here on this lovely shore

I would be so quickly by your side
Anywhere, night or day
My love for you I wear with pride
Like a fragrant maile lei

And as tomorrows come, I’ll remember
How your smile looks today
My love will always be a glowing ember
And from you I’ll never drift away

I would be so quickly by your side
Anywhere, night or day
My love for you I wear with pride
Like a fragrant maile lei

And as tomorrows come, I’ll remember
How your smile looks today
My love will always be a glowing ember
And from you I’ll never drift away



Limahuli Sugar Mill (Larry W. Jones 04/20/2003) (song#1385)


Today I’m daydreaming of that old sugar mill
That sits beside the lovely Limahuli stream
It was there, Lani, dear, that I remember still
How we strolled beneath the moon, just yesterday it seems
It was there that I first held you and felt the love in your eyes
You and Kauai, deep in my heart, are such a thrill
Though the islands are far away, I still see paradise
In daydreams of you and me by that old sugar mill

Lovely Limahuli valley stream is still there flowing
Above the valley the birds of paradise fly still
Though Kauai is far away, my thoughts are still there going
In daydreams of you and me by that old sugar mill

Many were those times, dear Lani, there by the bay
When we were young and love there came
We strolled Limahuli path almost every day
Just for the love of life to claim
Oh, how I rue day when we said Aloha, which meant goodbye
Our vows of island love, not to be fulfilled
Oh, may Aloha mean someday we will be again in paradise
Not just in daydreams of you and me by that old sugar mill

Constant thoughts in my mind are of those days in the past
For that Limahuli stream and you are just as bright, though old
Here in my heart the memories will forever last
Though the islands are far away, my memories are gold
I dream of you, Lani dear, when I’m alone at night
I dream of old Kauai, Limahuli valley, and you still
My heart drifts back again, whether day or night
In daydreams of you and me by that old sugar mill



My Sweet Kalani Lei (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2004) (song#1386)


I’ve just discovered happiness
Aloha just meant yes, yes, yes
I’m a happy guy, I must confess
Since I met my sweet Kalani Lei

Her polynesian eyes reflect the beauty of the island skies
She’s the reason why I’m now in paradise
When you see my island girl, you will realize
Why I adore my sweet Kalani Lei

Even in the tropic rain, I still see the sun
Because it’s there in her lovely smile
I can’t believe that I’m the favored one
To receive her love on such a lovely isle

Every day I stop and pray
That no one else will steal her bonnie heart away
I can’t wait until that yes, yes day
When I marry my sweet Kalani Lei

I’ve just discovered happiness
Aloha just meant yes, yes, yes
I’m a happy guy, I must confess
Since I met my sweet Kalani Lei

Every day I stop and pray
That no one else will steal her bonnie heart away
I can’t wait until that yes, yes day
When I marry my sweet Kalani Lei



Off The Chart In Paradise (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1387)


Here I go again, listening to my heart again
And here I go again, off the chart again
I’ll just have to take it all in stride
I guess I’m too wide eyed to hide my love

Though I may be trying too much
My arms are flying to her touch
There’s no way to even start to rule
The heart of a fool in love

My mind said, be careful of her winsome smile
My heart said, for her, just walk another mile
I know I should take it easy, wait awhile
But my heart is just not that versatile

Here I go again, dreaming again of enchanting eyes
And here I go again, off the chart in paradise
My heart is scheming under these skies of blue
Who wants to be careful when dreams are coming true

Though I may be trying too much
My arms are flying to her touch
There’s no way to even start to rule
The heart of a fool in love

Here I go again, dreaming again of enchanting eyes
And here I go again, off the chart in paradise
My heart is scheming under these skies of blue
Who wants to be careful when dreams are coming true



Simple Dreams (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1388)


If you wish you were a star
You might fall from where you are
And in case your dreams do not come true
That falling star just might be you

If you have a dream deep in your heart
Don’t be extreme or it may fall apart
Just be yourself and you will find
That simple dreams come true in time

Dreams are like stars up in the skies
Some will fall in flames of fire
But a few will fall in paradise
Those are the ones you should desire

If you have a dream deep in your heart
Don’t be extreme or it may fall apart
Just be yourself and you will find
That simple dreams come true in time

Just be yourself and you will find
That simple dreams come true in time



How Did I Lose (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1389)


Oh, how did I lose
When the time came for you to choose
Oh, how did I lose

The tropic moon had golden hues
Why wasn’t I there in his shoes
Oh, how did I lose

I always knew that your heart would melt some night
You must have felt some other love’s delight
Oh, how did I lose that right

I just heard the news
Where was I when the time came to choose
Oh, how did I lose

I always knew that your heart would melt some night
You must have felt some other love’s delight
Oh, how did I lose that right

I just heard the news
Where was I when the time came to choose
Oh, how did I lose your love



Sweet Island Day (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1390)


I’ll see you again when we hear those Maui chimes
I’ll see you again and ask you to be mine
One sweet island day, Aloha we will say
Happy will be the bride and groom
Under the tropic moon that day

It will be such a sweet island day
We’ll have such happy times
When I see you again and Aloha we will say
I will make you mine
When we hear those Maui chimes

One sweet island day, Aloha we will say
Happy will be the bride and groom
Under the tropic island moon

It will be such a sweet island day
We’ll have such happy times
When I see you again and Aloha we will say
I will make you mine
When we hear those Maui chimes



Blue Island Souvenirs (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1391)


Blue island souveniers
Darkened shadows and blue island souvenirs
My dreams are still of you, like a blue rendezvous
Love words still arise like a page from paradise
And then I see your eyes
In darkened shadows and blue island souvenirs

All the schemes we spoke of
All those songs of island love
Every little dream we knew of
Went up in the burning smoke of
Darkened shadows and blue island souvenirs

Each and every island tune
Spoke of love beneath that tropic moon
Dreams come true if only you are near
But now those dreams are strewn among
Darkened shadows and blue island souvenirs

Each and every island tune
Spoke of love beneath that tropic moon
Dreams come true if only you are near
But now those dreams are strewn among
Darkened shadows and blue island souvenirs



My Leilani Rose (Larry W. Jones 04/23/2003) (song#1392)


Oh, yes I love the charms of Leilani Rose
Ku’u Aloha, Leilani
Not Malana or Moana
Just the arms of my Leilani Rose

On the shore, she strolls beside me
I whisper, Ku’u Aloha, and give her a rose
Leilani looks so lovely beside the sea
Much more than the beauty of the rose

Ku’u Aloha, Leilani
I love you more than any
I have some songs to serenade Leilani
I’ve lost count, but there are many

Line after line, she’s like a love song
Mine, she’s all mine, to her my heart belongs
A voice that sounds like music
Lips that only honey knows
Her beauty is so artistic
Ku’u Aloha, I love my Leilani Rose



Island Guitar Symphony (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1393)


When I hear you say Aloha, so enchantingly
It’s not just what you say that makes my day
I hear an island guitar symphony

And when polynesian eyes smile at me
There from the tradewinds by the sea
I hear an island guitar symphony

My nights are so alone when you’re gone from me
My heart is so prone to be drawn to you eternally

Sweetheart, hold me close and whisper Aloha to me
Then from the tradewinds by the sea
I’ll hear another island guitar symphony

My nights are so alone when you’re gone from me
My heart is so prone to be drawn to you eternally

Sweetheart, hold me close and whisper Aloha to me
Then from the tradewinds by the sea
I’ll hear another island guitar symphony



Never Change (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1394)


On my last visit to the islands
It was just as warm down by the bay
The tradewinds still whispered from the heart
Through tall palm trees that swayed

On my last visit to the islands
The hula dance was still the thing
And lovers strolled in Waikiki
And birds of paradise would sing

I strolled the island sand where I got my first sunburn
Waves rolled in and reminded me why my heart still yearned

On my last visit to the islands
It was just as warm down by the bay
Time will never change them
And I know in my heart they’ll stay that way

Time will never change them
And I know in my heart they’ll stay that way



Like An Empty Dream (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1395)


Like the tradewinds that blow in paradise
Like the streams that flow down to the shore
This island love that’s in my heart
Flows on for evermore

Though it’s like an empty dream
Since your Aloha meant goodbye
You’re always on my mind, it seems
Even though I no longer hear your sigh

It gets so lonely in the day
And I won’t even talk about the night
Since you, my love, have flown away
And my future’s not so bright

My heart cries out to you from deep inside
Sometimes I think it’s gonna break
Please come back and in my arms reside
Or my heart for you will forever ache

It gets so lonely in the day
And I won’t even talk about the night
Since you, my love, have flown away
And my future’s not so bright

My heart cries out to you from deep inside
Sometimes I think it’s gonna break
Please come back and in my arms reside
Or my heart for you will forever ache



As Island Time Goes By (Larry W. Jones ) (song#1396)


Some say a kiss is just a kiss, but it’s still bliss
And a bird is just a bird when it flies
Unless it’s a bird of paradise
For you it’s songs of love applies
As island time goes by

And when a girl and guy there swoon
They still say Aloha, I love you
It’s just a fundamental moon
But under it you might be married soon
As island time goes by

Islands are made for love, make no mistake
Ukulele rings and guitar string are never out of date
An island man needs island sand
And an island woman for his mate
On island time it’s always worth the wait

It’s the same old happy line
New love blooms best on island time
Hearts in love will do the rest in paradise
The islands will always welcome lovers
As island time goes by

The islands will always welcome lovers
As island time goes by



It’s Never Too Soon (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1397)


It’s time for Hawaii in June, it’s never too soon
It’s time for a slack key guitar tune, it’s never too soon
I like to scavenger hunt, when the storm is through
I like the way love comes to the front
I’ll just put it blunt
It’s never too soon

It’s time to put away the books, love’s what cooks
It’s never out of tune
Strolling hand in hand in the island sand
It makes you glad you’re an island man
Unless you’re an island girl
Let’s give it a whirl, it’s never too soon

Kissing under the moon ain’t nothin’ new
And we’ll be doin’ it soon
It’s time to swoon
It’s never too soon
It’s time to swoon
It’s never too soon

It’s time for Hawaii in June, it’s never too soon
It’s time for a slack key guitar tune, it’s never too soon
I like to scavenger hunt, when the storm is through
I like the way love comes to the front
I’ll just put it blunt
It’s never too soon



You Know Why Too (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1398)


I know why the flowers grow in Kauai
Even when the sun has set for the day
And why the arctic terns nest in the valley
When they know they should be on their way
And I’m sure you know why too

I know why tradewinds are softly blowing
And why they whisper love in the breeze
And why on Mauna Kea it may be snowing
While the hula dancers sway beneath the trees
And I’m sure you know why too

When I see your smile, I hear island guitars by the mile
And when you glance at me
I want our romance to be around awhile

I know why rainbows are seen through the rain
And a silver line in every view
Your love, I know, is like a sweet refrain
That makes the flowers grow in every hue
And I’m sure you know why too
I’m sure you know why too



A Song For The Islands (Larry W. Jones 04/24/2003) (song#1399)


All friends of the islands and lovers in time
Lift up your song and let it be mine
Here we belong and here we make rhyme
For always we hear those sweet Maui chimes

Sing a song for the islands and one for my girl
Sip your kalua and feel your heart whirl
Let us sing us a song with a heart full of cheer
While always toward islands we ever may steer

Sing a song for the islands that I love so well
Their style and their beauty have now cast their spell
Her smile and her charms are treasures to see
There’s no one in the islands as happy as me

Sing a song for the islands and one for my girl
Sip your kalua and feel your heart whirl
Let us sing us a song with a heart full of cheer
While always toward islands we ever may steer

The ship lies at anchor there in the bay
Sing a song for the islands and pray that we stay
For I love a girl and she’s here with me
I’ll give her a whirl before I head back to sea

Sing a song for the islands and one for my girl
Sip your kalua and feel your heart whirl
Let us sing us a song with a heart full of cheer
While always toward islands we ever may steer



Fourteen Hundred (04/24/2003) (song#1400)


Fourteen hundred miles an hour, to get me to my love
Fourteen hundred ways to tell you, it’s you I’m thinking of
Fourteen 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
Fourteen 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
Fourteen hundred fathoms down lives cousin Davy Jones
Says I’ve got more songs to write about these tropic zones

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