"Inaniel" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Inaniel Miel Laeilani
Inaniel miel
Cunado dios va caminando
Cuando Dios va, va
Cuando dios va cantando
Cuando Dios va, va

Inaniel Miel Leilani
Cuando Dios va saltando
Cuando Dios va calmando
Cuando Dios va, va

Inaniel Miel Leilani

Cuando dios se rie de mi alma
Cuando dios se, se
Cuando el sol calienta el agua

Inaniel Miel Leilani

Ese sol
Con su pierna guapa
Tu dolor
Es pura santa

    General CommentThis song is very wonderful, Devendra is brilliant. Though I wish I knew more as to what the lyrics are, I was surprised to see no comments as well.
    I’m glad to have been introduced to his music, it’s really something I can not describe. ^^;;

    General Commentthis is my best translation:

    Inaniel Miel Laeilani
    Inaniel Miel
    When God goes walking
    When God goes, he goes
    When God goes singing
    When God goes, he goes

    Inaniel Miel Laeilani
    When God goes jumping
    When God goes calming
    When God goes, he goes

    Inaniel Miel Laeilani

    When God laughs at my soul
    When God...
    When the sun warms up the water

    Inaniel Miel Laeilani

    That sun
    With its handsome leg
    Your pain
    Is pure holy

    miel=honey, but I think Inaniel Miel Laeilani is a name?

    General CommentBefore i knew the translation, I'd always imagined that inaniel was either a childhood imaginary friend, or the spirit of a boy who died really young. Given the translation, unlikely, but it still sounds like that in my head when i listen to the song.

    General CommentIt is actually - spelled Leilani...like my name. Leilani is a popular Hawaiian name meaning "heavenly flower" or "royal child of heaven". There is a famous song from the 1930s called "Sweet Leilani" - this is somewhat of a spin on it - miel being honey...sweet.
