Hamakua Testo

Testo Hamakua

Before Hamakua
Who the hell were ya?
And do you know by now?
Remember the waiting
For water falling
And concentrating on myself
The quiet Ohia
Gave me a fever
To push through cracks and reach for light

Before 7 Feathers
Gave me his sweater
I'd be the brave and bear the cold
I found myself seeking
A false understanding
Of what is truth and honesty
I kept on stretching out
All of these blessings
And learned to scream above the rain


Before my beloved
Took me for granted
I would face the lions' den
Through our indecision
I discovered my medicine
People stay and people leaving
For what a better lesson
Than to be open to the messages
Coming through in spurts and mumbles
