F#M where appropiate


Wai maka o Poliahu
I ka `eha a ke aloha
Kaumaha i ka ha`alele
O Aiwohi kupua

Hui:
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai)
E ku`u ipo
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai)
E pili kua
E ho`i mai (e ho`i mai `oe)
E ho`i mai `oe e, e
E ho`i mai `oe

Anuanu ka `iu khau
O Mauna Kea
A`ohe ana ipo aloha
E ho`o pumehana


Kau mai ka hali`a aloha
O ka wa mamua
Puolu ka wai o Nohi
Ku`u mehameha


He lei ko aloha
No ku`u kino
Pili poli hemo`ole
No na kau akau


Translation.

Tears of the snow goddess
And the pains of love
Sadden by separation
Of Aiwohi, the demi-god

Cold the sacred dew
Of Mauna Kea
And no one to love
And to warm

To enact memories of love
Of times gone by
Refresh the water of Nohi
And my loneliness

Your wreath of love
For my body
And bosom closed tied
Put in place forever

Chorus:

Come back to me
My sweetheart
Come back to me
As we embrace
Come back to me
Come back to me
Come back to me

really good man. i liked it. i think its 'ika eha a', instead of 'ika ha'a' though.

anyway, great job.
