He ooi oi auee
Ana Latu
We walked on the beach
You loved me, I loved you
Our footprints in the sand,
When you held my hand
Became one path;
those in love will understand

He ooi oi auee
Ana Latu
We walked on the beach
You loved me, I loved you
Tomorrow you must go
Our hearts will break, I know,
We have tonight to love each other so
