That feeling when you can’t stop thinking about the one who got away

This is Master Sony’s rendition of Tiama’a’s classic, “Oa mai oe.”

Ua le mafai

ona galo lo’u mafaufau
aso uma tuana’i atu
le mafutaga mafana
a oe ma a’u

Baby Teuila
O a mai oe
Talofa i le faamoemoe
Le tiga o le alofa pe a o’u moe….

So’u vasalo sau sei fai mai
O a’u ea le pogai
Aue musu e i nofo i le fia vaai

Well baby my muse
my sunshine in the sky
the music in my song
the words of my rhymes
who be doing fine
while im struggling in this life
and trust me baby girl
i aint saying no lies
you are my one and only
and the lady of my dreams
you miss me like i missed you too
thats just the way it is
your tears and your kisses
that i cant forget
the way you look into my eyes
the first time we met

hani la’u pepe
o oe ua kasi
olo’o naunau aku
i ou foliga e makalasi
aso uma e le mafai
o lo’u kama fofo aku baby
lou alofa saukualasi
kau le lelei se moe
ua le mafai fo’i se ai
fai mai si o’u ulu
mo le a ea le pogai
ia e kufa po evaga
le mafukaga sapai
ae usu ai o la’u pese fia va’ai

Baby Teuila
O a mai oe
Talofa i le faamoemoe
Le tiga o le alofa pe a o’u moe….

So’u vasalo sau sei fai mai
O a’u ea le pogai
Aue musu e i nofo i le fia vaai

so tell me hows it gonna be teine
cause lately i been thinking
for reals i never been in a relationship
they got me twisted
my soul uplifted
more like love at first sight
that smile that you gave up
when i lift my two eyes on you
hope that you was gonna be the one
to fulfill my every dreams
this lust in me
yea teine im feeling that strong chemistries
feeling my blood and veins
wishing they would flow deeper
thicker than water
teine i’m here to stay
sometimes i see they think im big, dumb
please try to understand my plans
im jus a thug
whose a thank you for a true love
still yet ups and downs
but imma stay strong
tell me how its gonna be
baby teine or ill be forever lost in your arms

Baby Teuila
O a mai oe
Talofa i le faamoemoe
Le tiga o le alofa pe a o’u moe….

So’u vasalo sau sei fai mai
O a’u ea le pogai
Aue musu e i nofo i le fia vaai

pei o se lamepa
e susulu mai
lo’u uli naunau atu
ua le mafai
ta’u i lo’u agaga
pe moni ea
lei o’o mau i lo’u alofa faavalea
tuu mai lou lima ma fai mai ia ita
olea avea oe e fai ma a’u penina
o ou foliga suga nai ou mataalofa
fai lea ma vaimalu e fa’amalu i lo’u ola

Baby Teuila
O a mai oe
Talofa i le faamoemoe
Le tiga o le alofa pe a o’u moe….

So’u vasalo sau sei fai mai
O a’u ea le pogai
Aue musu e i nofo i le fia vaai
