Track 10.  E Pili Mai  3:09 (words by Larry Lindsey Kimura, music by Peter Moon)
Paula learned the hui (refrain) of this unique, retro version in a dream after hearing Cyril Pahinui perform the song at the Kanikapila Grill in Waikīkī. (Cyril graciously gave us permission to record it, but he requests that the hui only be performed by Pūlama.)

E Pili Mai (Come To Me)

Words by Larry Lindsey Kimura, Music by Peter Moon

 

`Auhea wale ana `oe                     Where are you
Ku`u lei o ka pō                              My sweetheart of the night
Pō anu ho`okahi nō wau              The night is cold and I am alone
Sweetheart mine                            Sweetheart mine
E pili mai                                         Come to me

Inā `o `oe a `o wau                       If you and I are together
`Ike i ke ahi o Makana                 We'll know the fires of Makana
He makana ia na ke aloha           It would be a gift given of love
No nā kau a kau                            For all time
`O `oe a`o wau                             You and I
Sweetheart mine                          Sweetheart mine
E pili mai                                       Come to me
