One of the wonderful things about music is its ability to bring people together to share a connection that reaches beyond borders and boundaries. Music can immediately bond souls and create common ground. What happens when kindred spirits who share a deep respect for each other and Hawaiian culture come together to share their music in collaboration? We believe this recording is a great example of just this – creativity, camaraderie, spontaneity, passion, joy, laughter, gratitude, and above all, aloha. We hope this recording is as much a joy to listen to as it was to create.

Mānoa

Words and Music by Jeff Peterson, ASCAP

Verse 1

I rise to see the colors in the valley

cast by the early morning light

the sun rises high above the Pali

I have never seen a more beautiful sight

prechorus:

There is a place in the valley

that always sets my soul and spirit free

Chorus:

Mānoa, i ka luna o ka pali

ke ‘ala malie o pikake

Mānoa, kahawai uluwehi

ke aloha no ku’u home o Hawai`i

E malama i ka aina oiwi

Verse 2:

The moon rises high above the mountains

the misty rain passes through its light

clouds drift gently across the valley

the scent of `awapuhi fills the night

Repeat Chorus 2

 

E Mau Ke Aloha

Lyrics reprinted by permission

 

Auhea wale ana ‘oe einei,                        Harken to me, You there!

I ka leo hone i kou mana’o,                     To the sweet voice in your thoughts,

He lei wehi ‘oe i ka’u ‘ike,                        You are a decorative lei to my sigh

E mau ke aloha, e mau                              The love continues, it continues

E mau ke aloha, e mau.                             The love continues, it continues

Pretty woman I see you everyday,

Who’d have thought you’d steal my heart away,

I know that I’m your man when we’re walking

hand in hand,

‘Cause it’s love, love, love that makes it alright.

‘Cause it’s love, love ,love that makes it alright

Pretty woman it’s been a long, long time,

Can you remember the days of roses and wine?

Now on every anniversary day our hearts still seem to say,

It’s love, love, love that makes it alright.

It’s love, love, love that makes it alright.

This song was composed for my wife, Robin, on our eighth wedding anniversary and in celebration of the pending birth of my daughter, Marlene Emmalani Kaleihulu-a-Nuhi Ayame Kamakahi.

`O Keawanui, he `āina kamaha`o i ka la`i,

He nani maoli, ka uhi o ka pō mākole.

Bridge:

Ma nā `ale o ia kaha, e hō`olu mau.

Repeat Bridge

Ke ano mai nei, ke kaha `o Kalaeloa,

ho`olaha i `ane`i, ka hīhīmanu o ke kai `ula

Repeat Bridge

Ha`ina `ia mai, no Keawanui `āina aloha.

He nani maoli, ka uhi o ka pō mākole.
