Hai, Hai, Haida Gwaii

                                                                                  Written by: Laurie Thain and Gord Maxwell

 

CHORUS:

Hai, Hai, Haida Gwaii

How I’ve missed your soul and your changing sky.

My heart is guided to your light

Like a northern star, Haida Gwaii.

 

Through pounding waves an icy spray

The Expedition makes her way

To the green and misty shores

Where my cares are blown away once more.

I travel light, free and wild

Cradled like a newborn child

And as I wander by the sea

Your spirit sings to me.

​CHORUS:

 

Endless days on endless sand

Watching sunsets paint the land

Breathing life back into me

You lift me up, you set me free.

And as the precious years go by

I whisper “thanks” for Haida Gwaii

And those watchmen who guard and tend

So this ancient poem never ends.

 

CHORUS:

 

BRIDGE: There’s something here that calls my name

And leads me back time and again

I feel it in the wind and in the tide.

 

Hai, Hai, Haida Gwaii

How I’ve missed your soul and your changing sky.

My heart is guided to your light

Like a northern star . . .

CHORUS:
