Two Lovers ( ‘Elua Hoa )

the sun has set
ua kau ka lā
  
I breathe you in  
Hiki wau iāʻoe i loko  
   
for you are always  
no ka mea,ʻoʻoe mau  
   
the sun over, under  
ʻo ka lā, ma lalo  
   
for you are always  
no ka mea,ʻoʻoe mau  
   
my lover’s warmth at night  
ʻO ka mahanahana a kaʻu mea aloha i ka pō  
   
for you are always  
no ka mea,ʻoʻoe mau  
   
my lover’s heart  
ke aloha o kuʻu mea aloha  
   
and as the moon will rise  
a me ka mahina e ala mai a  
   
forever in my arms  
mau loa i koʻu mau lima  
   
and with the moon and stars  
a me ka mahina a me nā hōkū  
   
forever in my eyes  
i mua mau loa  
   
I do not touch the ground  
ʻAʻole wau e hoʻopā i ka lepo  
   
when you make love to me  
ke aloha maiʻoe iaʻu  
   
we are the sun and moon  
ʻO mākou ka lā a me ka mahina  
   
forever in the sky    
i ka lani mau loa  
   
and be forevermore    
a mau loa aku  
   
two lovers in the sky  
ʻelua mau mea aloha ma ka lewa
