"Hawaiian Air" as written by Edward David Huw Macfarlane, Jack Barnaby Savidge and Edward John Frederick Gibson....
Taking a ride to another climb
Knees in my back 'cause we're flying high
Did I give it all?
I guess I gave it all

Seeing the mountains through the fog
Watching a film with a talking dog
'Cause if I fall
Then I guess I fall

[Repeat: x4]
Hawaiian air

Leaving the world down beneath the clouds
Hawaiian notes, don't need no pounds
Did I give them all?
Oh, did I give them all?

Ache in my leg from a broken seat
Skipping the meal for a G&T
'Cause if I fall
I'm beggin' not to fall

[Repeat: x4]
Hawaiian air

Touchin' down
Hit the ground
I'm breathin' new air
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

As we land, you pinch my hand
I'm still here
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

Up in the sky on a lunar bound
Steel guitar and the melly sound
Did I give it all?
I guess I gave it all

Feeling the shapes keeps me reticent
Stuck in my seat from the turbulence
And if I fall
Then I fall

Breaking open skies of green earths
Deserts,
In our eyes we're falling
Our hearts in our ?

Touchin' down
Hit the ground
I'm breatin' new air
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

As we land, you pinch my hand
I'm still here
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

As the wheels, hit the ground
I'm breathing Hawaiian air
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

As the heat fills my lungs
I'm breathing Hawaiian air
Gonna take this all in
Gonna take this all in

[Repeat: x4]
Hawaiian air

    Lyric CorrectionI think that in the first line it would be "clime" not "climb".

    Great song. Among my favourites on Pala.

    General Commentim thinking its about a holiday, but feel that thats a given? the feeling when you first step of a plane into the humid hot amazing holiday destination, "can i take this all in"

    My InterpretationIt seems to me that this is about a dream holiday to Hawaii of someone who doesn't like flying. The lyrics are about the discomfort of the seats, having alcohol instead of food to calm the nerves, the resign to the thought that if the plane goes down there is nothing you can do and when the flight is over after touch down the reassuring pinch of the hand by a loved one signalling that it is all over. Watching a film with a talking dog, is an in flight movie possibly that they are not concentrating on because of the fear of flying (I'm wondering if in Scooby Doo 2, doesn't Scooby dress up in a hoola outfit? just a random Hawaii connection.)
    Anyway I could be completely wrong, just the way I interpret the lyrics

    General CommentHERE ARE THE CORRECT LYRICS (as I posted them before Lyricfind took over):

    Taking a ride to another clime
    Knees in my back 'cause we're flying high
    Did I give it all?
    I guess I gave it all

    Seeing the mountains through the fog
    Watching a film with a talking dog
    'Cause if I fall
    Then I guess I fall

    Hawaiian air

    Leaving the world down beneath the clouds
    Hawaiian notes, don't need no pounds
    Did I give them all?
    Oh, did I give them all?

    Ache in my leg from a broken seat
    Skipping the meal for a G&T
    'Cause if I fall
    I'm beggin' not to fall

    Hawaiian air

    Touchin' down
    Hit the ground
    I'm breathing new air
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?

    As we land, you pinch my hand
    I'm still here
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?

    Up in the sky Honolulu bound
    Steel guitar and the mele sound
    Did I give it all?
    I guess I gave it all

    Feeling the shapes keeps me reticent
    Stuck in my seat from the turbulence
    And if I fall
    Then I fall

    Breaking open skies of green earths
    ....? all of the fruit
    Deserts,
    In our eyes we're falling
    Our hearts in our ?

    Hawaiian air

    Touchin' down
    Hit the ground
    I'm breathing new air
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?

    As we land, you pinch my hand
    I'm still here
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?

    As the wheels, hit the ground
    I'm breathing Hawaiian air
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?

    As the heat fills my lungs
    I'm breathing Hawaiian air
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?


    Of course, there are still a few lyrics I couldn't get because I'm not a genius.

    Lyric CorrectionTo me, it sounds more like:

    Touchin' down
    Hit the ground
    I'm breathing new air
    Can I take this all in?
    Can I take this all in?
