verse
G
the west winds of - ten last too long
C C(b5)sus2 Csus2 C69 G
and when they calm down, noth - ing ev - er feels the same

sheltered under the kamani tree
C C(b5)sus2 Csus2 C69 G
wait - ing for the pass - ing rain

clouds keep mov - ing to un - cov - er the sea
C C(b5)sus2 Csus2 C69 G
of stars a - bove us chas - ing the day a - way

to find the sto - ries that we some - times need
C C(b5)sus2 Csus2 C69
lis - ten close e - nough, all else

fades, fades a - way
