Livin Aloha Lyrics

I’m waving to
Some people I know
Just trying to say hello
But they don’t even see me
They’re too distracted
With their phone
That’s why I love
The ocean so
It always waves to me
And says aloha to the
Sound of a
Salty air sea breeze

Life in action
No distractions
Livin that aloha
Wherever you are
Living aloha, Living aloha
Living aloha
Loving this life we live
One moment at a time
Living aloha, living aloha
Living aloha
It’s the little things in life
That make it so fine
We’re working on our to do list
It never seems to get done
Checking things off day by day
We’re always under the gun
What isn’t due today
We can do it later
Let’s slow it down
It’s Hawaii time
Pau hana
Gonna live that
Aloha now

Life in slow motion
No commotion
Living that aloha
Wherever you are
Livin aloha, livin aloha
Livin aloha
Loving this life we live
One moment at a time
Living aloha, living aloha
Living aloha
Taking the time we need
And living life right

Live in aloha
Surf in aloha
Sippin liquid aloha
With family & friends
Breathe in aloha
Share in aloha
Love is living aloha
Again & again

Life in action
No distractions
Livin that aloha
Wherever you are
Living aloha, Living aloha
Living aloha
Loving this life we live
One moment at a time
Living aloha, living aloha
Living aloha
Taking the time we need
And living life right

Story Behind This Song

I was working on a new business pitch at my agency for the Kona beer brand when I got the idea to write this song. Kona Brewing refers to their beer as “Liquid Aloha”. Since I think music can be some of the most inspiring content out there I thought writing a song that reflected the spirit of the brand and mentioned their nickname could be a creative way to break through the advertising competition clutter. However I never really got the courage to bring the song up to my team at work.

What actually got me started writing this song was the intro I came up with. It’s amazing the impact and happiness a simple hello can have when someone says hi to you, Oprah even did a piece on it! That’s what I love about being in boats on water, whenever you pass by another boat everyone always waves hello! It can also have a very negative effect and bring a person down when you are just trying to say hi but are being ignored by someone. With our society being so plugged in, often times we don’t notice the real life people in front of us. Therefore I thought, ya know, the ocean always waves to me, and the intro and momentum of this song was born.

It’s funny, because as I was writing this song, the people at our agency were continually discussing and brainstorming on what “Living Aloha” means, as there really are so many ways that Aloha can be described. I think I hit on the spirit of it though, as looking at Kona Beer’s first ad campaign featuring their Longboard Lager and Big Wave beer here in San Diego in 2014, I think the brand and my song hit on a lot of the same points!

So, if you’ve read this whole song story by now, take a step back away from your computer/laptop, tablet, or phone and go grab a cold liquid aloha and step outside to enjoy the beautiful nature around you, wherever you are. Oh and you can pick up my song from my web store here before you go, and enjoy this tune along with your liquid aloha.  Mahalo!
