lyrics

Take a look at these hills here
It must have been some time
Since they were first raised up
It starts me thinking about a Steerer called John Begg
Long ago, explorer on the North currents
Only small parts, but he paved the way for these
Long distance conversations
Cloudy day navigation we have now

Was Kea. Bay a dream
My head goes cloudy all the time
Maybelline waited at the shoreline
There was good reason to return

But you fell out with that crowd
You must have been confused
This warm summer land
It can take you by surprise

Take a look at these hills here
It must have been some time
Since they first made you stop
Their deep lines, mysteries untold
Only they can know, only they can say
What happened to the different things beyond us now
Like Steerer John Begg
He was a true mariner
He was a hero of our time

But you fell out with that crowd
You must have been confused
This warm summer land
It can take you by surprise

Kealakekua Bay
He was the Rose of the Winds
He was a hero of our time
