Kalepa - by Matthew Kane

 
Pono 'ia ka mana'o e naue
E 'ike i ka makani kaulana
Ka ihona ka pi'ina o Kalepa
'Au'au i ka wai hu'ihu'i
 
 
 
Hui:
He 'i'ini he ha'upu he hali'a
No ka malu ulu 'ohi'a o 'Alele
I laila ho'ohihi kahi mana'o
Ia wai hu'ihu'i koni i ka 'ili
Ia wai hu'ihu'i koni i ka 'ili
 
 
 
Pili mau no na'e ko'u aloha
Me ka ua Pe'epapohaku
Pau 'ole no na'e ko'u ho'ohihi
Ka makani Ka'ili-aloha
It's alright for thoughts to wander
To feel the well-known breeze
The descent, the climb up to Kalepa
(To) Bathe in the icy water
 
 
 
Chorus:
A deep desire, a sweet daydream, a tender thought
About the 'ohi'a grove of 'Alele
There thoughts are in fascination
(By) This icy water that chills the skin
(By) This icy water that chills the skin
 
 
 
However, forever binding is my love
With the rain (named) Pe'epapohaku
However, never ending is my admiration
For the wind that snatches love
