Hi everyone! I have had many of my students ask about the chords and the lyrics for the song “Someone To Lava” so here they are along with the chord shapes.

Play along with the video!

[Verse]

C                     G7
A long long time ago, there was a volcano.

F                       C             G7
Living all alone, in the middle of the sea.

C                         G7
He sat high above his bay, 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 every day,

C             G7
for years and years.

[Chorus]

F                C
I have a dream, I hope it would 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.

[Verse]

C                         G7
He was 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
Every day she heard his tune, her lava grew and grew

F                       C                  G7
because she believed his 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 it would 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.

[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                               G7
He tried to sing to let her know that she was not alone,

F               C           G7
but with no lava his song was all done.

C                               G7
He filled the sea with his tears watching his dreams disappear

F                      C             G7
as she remembered what his song meant to her.

[Chorus] [Female]

F                 C
I have a dream, I hope it would 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.

[Verse]

C                           G7
And oh they were so happy to finally meet above the sea

F                     C             G7
and all together now their lava grew and grew.

C                             G7
No longer were they alone with Aloha as their new home

F                   C                 G7
and when you visit them, this is what they sing…

[Chorus] [Female + Male]

F              C
I have a dream I hope it would come true.

G7                           C
That you will grow old with me, an I will grow old with you.

F                         C
We thank the earth, sea, and sky we thank too.

F G7 C
I lava YOU!

F G7 C
I lava YOU!
F G7 C
