Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Lover Of Mine Lyrics




Lover of mine, over the sea
Deep blue ocean, waves in motion
Seems so long since I've seen you
Some day, you'll be here with me

Love of mine, where can you be
Welcome summer, sunny weather
Where have you gone, I look to the sea
Some day you'll come home to me

[SOLO]

Love of mine, where can you be
Welcome summer, sunny weather
Where have you gone, I look to the sea
Some day you'll come home to me
Some day you'll come home to me

  29. Mac Naminous

    My gosh Bruddah Iz, Thee Formidable Israel Kamakawiwoole, whose songs
    transcended generations. The aloha runs deep. I left Hawaii in 1999 for
    the 1st time in my life but couldn't listen to Bruddah Iz music because
    it would have made it sooo hard for me to be away from home and do what I
    had to do. It took courage a few years later to finally allow Bruddah
    Iz singing to bring me back to my roots. How He fills you with pain
    & love & blessings all at the same time. I will miss you
    forever, as I miss home forever. I can go back home but it is not the
    home I left......You & then, I will cherish forever....

  61. Mirtha Barahona

    I am always writing about iZ and I felt the deepest sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart when I got to know that we lost this beautiful man who was just perfect in every single way. I am sure, that if I was close to him, I would have fight to save him from the ones who killed him.
    But I do also understand that not matter what, when the time comes, we have to leave, and go were all souls go when our missions in life has been completed and he did completed his missions in this life. He then, went to the place from which he will come back to live and again he will teach us even more than he did this time.
    Now, I think that when we cry for him, we also cry for ourselves, because we need people like IZ in this cold and suffering world, to not loose ouselves in the misery and desperation that it is growing in this world nowadays. I have been looking for another one of this exceptional kind of man, without success. If someone here knows a man that it is like him, please let me know, I will be happy to know him and to love him as much as I love IZ!

    Song Salieri

    Nobody killed him. Brudda Iz passed on from heart and respiratory troubles. His wife took very good care of him until his final heart attack. He weighed over 700 pounds and nothing he or Drs tried could take the excess weight off.
    His body laid in state at Hawaii's Capitol building, the only non politician given that honor. Traffic was backed up for miles as people paid respects.
    Is knew his time was short, but he also knew that in his lifetime here on this Earth, he was well loved.

    "When our time come, don't cry for me. Don't cry for me. Plant a tree in the middle ... where they play soccer," he laughs. "Kind of small, then I'll grow big."~Israel Kamakawiwoole, aka Brudda Iz

  62. Tyrvox

    Some one to lava!

  63. Santa Banta

    im almost of divocing and remembering our lovely trip in hawaii.Iz is saying be calm and following your mind.But i can't find the way out.Anyway thanks a lot of your comforting song........

    Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. Foi muito famoso em sua terra natal e era descendente de uma linhagem pura de nativos havaianos. Nunca ocultou a sua posição a favor da independência do Havaí e de defesa dos direitos dos nativos. É um dos nomes mais conhecidos do estado americano do Havaí. Ao longo da sua carreira musical, Israel Iz debateu-se com muitos problemas de saúde relacionados com o seu peso excessivo chegando a pesar 343 kg, num corpo com 1,88 m. Em 1997, com 38 anos, faleceu devido a problemas respiratórios causados pela obesidade mórbida. Mais de dez mil pessoas compareceram ao seu funeral em 10/ 06/1997, o caixão de madeira estava no edifício do Capitólio, em Honolulu. Ele foi a terceira pessoa na história do Havaí a receber esta honra (os outros dois foram o senador Faísca Matsunaga e o governador John A. Burns) Suas cinzas foram espalhadas pelo Oceano Pacífico em M'kua Praia em 12/06/1997.
    Um de seus álbuns mais famosos foi Facing Future, de 1993, trabalho que o lançou para a fama mundial, onde consta o tema "Somewhere over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World", uma versão que mistura dois clássicos da música dos E.U.A.: "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", do filme The Wizard of Oz (br: O Mágico de Oz / O Feiticeiro de Oz), e "What a Wonderful World", onde apenas se ouvem a sua voz suave acompanhada pelo seu ukulele , que rapidamente se tornou um êxito mundial e que lhe rendeu vários prêmios. Essa música aparece em diversos episódios de séries norte-americanas como Cold Case, E.R. e Young Americans, no qual a música "Somewhere over the Rainbow" tocou no primeiro episódio e no último, sendo a música a encerrar defitivamente a série; também foi trilha dos filmes Meet Joe Black (br: Encontro Marcado, de 1998), Finding Forrester (br: Encontrando Forrester, de 2000) e, mais recentemente, 50 First Dates.
    Seu legado: Em 2001 foi lançado Alone in IZ World, um álbum póstumo contendo vários sucessos e temas inéditos, relançado em 2010, com o mesmo sucesso e que viria ser muito popular e usado em anúncios publicitários, em vários países como a Alemanha, iniciativas de caridade nos Países Baixos, muitas são as formas e instituições que têm utilizado a famosa música "Over the rainbow".

    "Nunca seremos gratos a "DEUS" o suficiente para agradecer-mos o tamanho presente que nos deu.
    Foi bom enquanto durou e durará enquanto ouvir-mos suas musicas.
    Que "DEUS" o tenha em seu reino de gloria por todo o sempre.
    Vai com "DEUS" Israel iz

  96. zetinhod

    O mundo ganhou,nós ganhamos,
    Como foi bom enquanto durou,
