Ae e te le’i tu’ua o a’u
toe manatu fia momoli atu
Tausaga o i luma ma ni mea e tutupu ai
O le nu’u naumati o le a fai le mo o ni rosa e le ola ai
Pau lea ou te ofo ina atu a’u nei mo oe

O le a leai se fale i luga o le mauga ma se fa’atau ma’a taua
Leai fo’i ni ofu leaga e te toe la’ei
Mea uma e tu mai pea i lou luma ina ia e iloaina
Pau lea ou te ofo ina atu a’u nei mo oe

Tele o ou alofa uma nai so’o se mea ou te mafaia
Ia tautua na ma oe o lou lea mana’o
Pau lava se ‘auro ou te avatu o manatu ia o ia te a’u
Pau lea ou te ofo ina atu a’u nei mo oe


Pau lea ou te ofo ina atu a’u nei mo oe
Pau lea ou te ofo ina atu a’u nei mo oe

  1. Andrew

    This song has the most mellow rhythm and the harmonising falsetto’s really compliment it, with about too over powering, vocal wise.
    What are they singing about?

  2. Rarohiti

    Got a cover for this …. This song has deep meanings…. Love it..

  3. Salote Fanene

    They’ll be no mansions
    Waiting on the hills
    With crystal chandeliers
    And there’ll be no fancy
    Clothes for you to wear

    Everything I have is standing here
    In front of you to see
    All I have
    To offer you is me
