Blanco White – Kauai O’o Lyrics

Kauai O’o By Blanco White

The song of an island
The call of a friend
Heard never again
Out in the world
If you were alone
How could you have known
That yours was a final breath?
Of language surviving
Through an age
Til only a name was left
Too hard to believe

Everywhere I run, on every horizon
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see
Everywhere I run, I hear only silence
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see

We couldn’t decipher
The things that you said
The only one left with time to go
You wandered the earth
Were seen but not heard
No matter how far you went
The story’s behind us, not today
As careless with every step
Too hard to believe

Everywhere I run, on every horizon
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see
Everywhere I run, I hear only silence
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see

Are we searching enough
For a life that we’d choose?
Tell me when does it stop?
Tell me what we lose

Everywhere I run, on every horizon
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see
Everywhere I run, I hear only silence
The words are gone, Kauai O’o
There’s nothing to see
