[INTRO] C G7 F C G7
[VERSE]
C
A long, long time ago
G7
There was a volcano
F                          C           G7
Living all alone, in the middle of the sea
C
He sat high above on his bay
G7
Watching all the couples play
F                  C             G7
And wishing that, he had someone too
C                              G7                             F
And from his lava came, this song of hope, that he sang out loud
F         C              G7
Everyday, for years and years

[CHORUS]
F                  C
I have a dream, I hope will come true
      G7                        C
That you're here with me, and I'm here with you
  F                               C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
      F         G7       C
Will send me someone to lava

[INSTRUMENTAL] F G C

[VERSE]
C                            G7
Years of singing all alone, turned his lava into stone
   F                           C     G7
Until, he was on the brink of extinction
C                               G7
But little did he know, that living in the sea below
      F                 C            G7
Another volcano was listening to his song
C                            G7
Everyday she heard his tune, her lava grew and grew
    F                            C              G7
Because, she believed, that song was meant for her
C                        G7
Now she was so ready to meet him above the sea
       F                     C            G7
As he sang his song of hope for the last time

[CHORUS]
F                  C
I have a dream, I hope will come true
      G7                        C
That you're here with me, and I'm here with you
  F                               C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
      F         G7       C
Will send me someone to lava

[INSTRUMENTAL] C

[VERSE]
C                           G7
Rising from the sea below, stood a lovely volcano
F                       C                 G7
Looking all around but she could not see him
    C
He tried to sing to let her know
     G7
That she was not, there alone
     F                C            G7
But with no lava his song was so gone
   C
He filled the sea, with his tears
    G7
And watched his dreams, disappear
    F                        C            G7
As she, remembered what his song meant to her

[CHORUS]
F                  C
I have a dream, I hope will come true
      G7                        C
That you're here with me, and I'm here with you
  F                               C
I wish that the earth, sea, the sky up above
      F         G7       C
Will send me someone to lava

[INSTRUMENTAL] C

[VERSE]
C
Oh they were so happy
      G7
To finally meet above the sea
F                        C               G7
All together now, their lava grew and grew
      C                                G7
The longer are they all alone, with aloha as their new home
F                         C                 G7
And when you visit them, this is what they sing

[CHORUS]
F                  C
I have a dream, I hope will come true
        G7                         C
That you'll grow old with me, and I'll grow old with you
F                             C
We thank the earth, sea, the sky we've been to
 F  G7    C
I lava you
F   G7   C
I lava you
F   G7  C
I lava you
