Track Name: Home Again
Open roads and broken hearts
I've seen the unseen
I don't know where to start
I've felt this pain
Watched people go insane
Felt my roots so deep down in the ground

They say
We grow apart
I know now
When love is from your heart
It only grows stronger
These days grow longer
I'm waiting for the sun to set down
Step my barefeet on the ground
I am

I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again

Lakes on both sides
We've got friends throwin' high fives
No walls built too high
My capitol is not to divide
Walking down State Street
Feelin' love in the suns heat
Your arms around me baby
Bliss is all we need now

They say
We grow apart
I know now
When love is from your heart
It only grows stronger
These days grow longer
I'm waiting for the sun to set down
Step my barefeet on the ground
I am

I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again
Home Again
I'm Home Again

They say
Smash what they say
Ooohhhh
Destroy what they say
What do you feel?
I feel love
Warm, sweet love

Round round round round
Round round round
(x4)

If love is from your heart
You know
Thats the only place to start
It will never be taken away
On your final day you will rise

I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again
I'm Home Again
Home Again
Awe awe awe oh
I'm Home Again
Awe yeah yeah
Home Again
Awe oo ooo
I'm Home Again

Welcome Home
(laugher and clapping)
Track Name: Hawai'i Song
I awoke from a dream
How did it seem
So real?
Her fins turned to feet
She walked outta' the sea
And straight up to me

If I can't go near
I'll take ya here
If I can't go near
I'll take ya here
Oh
Alooooha

None of my friends would believe
She was so sweet
Sweeter then the sweetest liliko'i
And juicier then the ripest mango

I'll take ya there
If ya can't go near
I'll take ya here
If ya can't go near
I'll take ya here
Oh
Alooooha

Now I'm stuck in this frozen land (land)
Only in my dreams you take my hand (hand)
Beauty is fleeting
And charm is deceitful
And I want more

Oh ooo

Shake baby shake
Groove baby groove
Move baby move
To the tropical breeze
All night

Aloha
The Hōkūleʻa led us here
Star searcher
An ancient map to the ʻĀINA
She'll take ya there
Oh your heart
She'll take ya there
Intuition
She'll take ya there
Oh
Alooooha

Oh ooo
Track Name: Aloha Grace
For so long now
I pointed the finger
For so long now I
Its my own now
Its my own

Its only by
Grace alone
That I walk in the light

Yay ah ooo

Mother Maui
Picked me up on the side of the road
Directed me where to go
Gave me the word and the light
Father Maui
Shared fresh swordfish and pineapple
With his brother too
Aloha Grace

Its only by
Grace alone
That I walk in the light

Yay ah Yah ah ooo

Sister Ana welcomed me into her home
Celebration with her family and children oooh
Opened up my soul
Brother Philip smashed the frameworks of fear
Under the great Banyon tree
There so many souls set free

Its only by
Grace alone
That I walk in the light

I awoke to Hope giggling outside my tent
With her mother
Through the bamboo forest
To the waterfall of grace
To where I did repent
I tore off my clothes
And I climbed close
I spread my arms wide
As the wind beat me back
It was a heavenly dose
Beads of water
Beat the fear off my face
And in that moment I let go
And the Spirit took form in the shape of a face floating above
How graceful
How graceful
And I

Oooooh oooo (x2)
Oooo

How Graceful
Track Name: Give Back
I know a king (x3)

Playing one string
Pierces to the soul of the world

Holy movement
Angels singing and dancing
Yah
I know a king
I know a king
Yah

Captivating dreams
Breaking down walls
All around
Around, round, round
The World

Into the caves
Through the crashing waves
Golden notes
I know a king
(x2)

His soul an eye (yeah)
His song a hurricane

Musical alchemy
Destruction of fear

Track Name: June
In your eyes
There's no lies
The baby cries and
This is life's suprise
And I had one prayer there
When I was down on my knees
Now that you've granted it well
What will I do
With all these days
Are so full and so bright
I'm so thankful
Just to be right here
Right now

I was standing on top of a mountain
In the middle of winter
When a blizzard blew through
All at once time stood still and
I didn't know what to do
I couldn't see my hand in front of my face now
All of these bullets and beads of ice
They flew right past

At that moment a corona occurred
Where the sun appeared as a full moon
All at once time stood still
Now I'm sitting' in my garden in June
Two humming birds fly by
And I realize
That all my worries are gone

They're gone
Yes
They're gone
Oo oh a oo
They're gone

In your eyes
There's no lies
The baby cries and
This is life's suprise
And I had one prayer there
When I was down on my knees
Now that you've granted it well
What will I do?
With all these
