Aloha to the good people of Kaua‘i.
Where did the time go? This is the 15th month of sharing my songs.
I composed this song after completing a nine-city tour in the largest showrooms in California, called “People for Club Universe.” I said: ‘Hawai‘i I’m Coming Home.’
Hawai‘i I’m Coming Home
Hawai‘i I’m coming home, Hawai‘i I love you so. Please have rainbows as flower leis, gentle raindrops as tears of joy.
Crystal waters caress your shores, magic moonlight shines thru the trees, I yearn just to return, Hawai‘i I’m coming home.
Far away I did to go see the other lands, but deep within my heart cried, to be home again.
Hawai‘i I’m coming home, Hawai‘i I love you so, I yearn just to return, Hawai‘i I’m coming home.
