C
A long long time ago
G
there was a volcano
F C G
living all alone in the middle of the sea.
C
He sat high above his bay
G
Watching all the couples play
F C G
And wishing that he had someone too.
C
And from his lava came
G
this song of hope that he sang
F C G
out loud every day for years and years.
F C
I have a dream, I hope it will come true
G C
that you’re here with me and I am here with you
G C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above,
F G C
will send me someone to lava.

C
Year of singing all alone
G
turned his lava into stone
F C G
until he was on the brink of extinction
C
But little did he know
G F
that living in the sea below another volcano
C G
was listening to his song.

C
Everyday she heard his tune
G
her lava grew and grew
F C G
because she believed the song was meant for her.
C
Now she was so ready to meet him above the sea
F
As he sang his song of hope
C G
for the last time.

F C
I have a dream, I hope it will come true
G C
that you’re here with me and I am here with you
G C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above,
F G C
will send me someone to lava.

Rising from the sea below
stood a lovely volcano looking all around
but she could not see him.
He tried to sing to let her know
that she was not there alone
but with no lava his song was so gone.
He filled the sea with his tears
and watched his dreams disappear
as she remembered what the song meant to her.

F C
I have a dream, I hope it will come true
G C
that you’re here with me and I am here with you
G C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above,
F G C
will send me someone to lava.

Oh, they were so happy
to finally meet above the sea
all together now, their lava grew and grew
No longer they are alone
with aloha as their new home
and when you visit them this is what they sing.
I have a dream, I hope it will come true
now you’d go all with me and I’d go all with you
We thank the earth, sea, the sky we’ve been too
I lava you…
I lava you…
I lava you…
