With a sunset and a

To give us just enough light

We drew our own constellations"

[Verse]
(Same tab as the verse before)
"The west winds often last too long.
The wind may calm down nothing ever feels the same.
Sheltered under the Kamani tree.
Waiting for the passing rain.
Clouds keep moving to uncover the scene.
Stars above us chasing the day away.
To find the stories that we sometimes need.
Listen close enough, all else fades.
Fades away."

[Chorus]
(Same tab as the chorus before)
"It was just another night.
With a sunset and a
moonrise not so far behind.
To give us just enough light
to lay down underneath the stars.
Listen to all the translations
of the stories across the sky.
We drew our own constellations"

[Outro]
Same exact tab as the Intro.
Except it ends on...
