Constellations
Jack Johnson Lyrics


The light was leaving and the west it was blue
The children's laughter saying they're skipping just like the stones they threw
The voices echoed across the ways, it's getting late

It was just another night with the sunset and
The moon rise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars listening to
Papa's translations of the stories across the sky, we drew our own constellations
The west winds often last too long
But when they come down nothing ever feels the same
Sheltered under the Kamani tree waiting for the passing rain
Clouds keep moving to uncover the sea
Stars above us chasing the day away
To find the stories that we sometimes need
Listen close enough all else fades
Fades away

It was just another night with the sunset and
The moon rise not so far behind
To give us just enough light
To lay down underneath the stars listening to
All the translations of the stories across the sky to do our own constellations

This was the song my father and I danced to at my wedding. The lyrics are kind of nonsensical, but it just fit. Thanks Jack Johnson.

When I went to Hawaii in 2008, the Kona radio station played this hourly...it was new then...and it's like the perfect organic tune to make as your soundtrack while in Hawaii...Love this song forever now, and it takes me back.......

Came across this song while getting ready for work. I must have listened to it at least 10 times! Kept asking Alexa to replay it! Then me and my husband of 44 years danced to it before I left for work I was happy just thinking about it! Memories were brought back from childhold! Thanks for sharing tnis!

You know you live in a good world when you heard this. But this may not actually be reflected in your surrounding. Still you dream that youd be in that dream environment in the future
