* A- | ia ke ala i kana- | hele  in ACHS

 So like, so very like
The Kanilehua rain
That seems to say
There is one to love

You are the one that I think of
My darling who comes at evening time
Like the song of the birds
Filling the late night hours

Let us two draw together
An intensity sealed deep within
You've been searching for me
And found me in the whispering breeze  [HMA]
