Fai Se Tatalo

O ua lata ona e moe

Pele ea, ou te tatalo mo oe
ia e manuia
se’ia ou fo’i atu

Ta’u atu i nai taimaiti
ou te vave atu ne’i tagi mai
Ia e manuia
se’ia ou fo’i atu

TALI:
Fai se tatalo mo a’u
O a ‘ou fo’i mo oe
Pele, i aso uma
ta te vava mamao
E tagi lo’u fatu
ma alu pea
Ou te manatua
pea oe i lo’u fatu

A mafatia oe ma mamao
Pele, i lo’u fatu, e le afaina
Leai se tasi o le a ia fa’aluaina
Ui ina le tau o la’u va’ai
a e manatua pea oe i a… *
Ia e manuia se’ia ou fo’i atu

{ TALI }

    Another version of these lyrics, submitted by Shellsx:

    V1: A mafatia oe ma vaivai
    Iesu e tali mai i so’o se manaoga
    Lo’u loto mo ia e sa’oloto ai lou manao
    E afisi oe ma le fiafia
    I mea uma lava e manaomia
    E faasa’oloto oe mai le pologa

    CH: Fai se tatalo mo a’u
    O a’u foi mo oe
    Fia faatasi atu ia te oe Iesu e, faaola
    O lo’o faatali mo oe
    Fia faatali atu i le ioe

    Po o ua lata ona e moe
    Pele ea, ou te tatalo mo oe
    ia e manuia
    se’ia ou fo’i atu

    Ta’u atu i nai taimaiti
    ou te vave atu ne’i taliga
    Ia e manuia
    se’ia ou fo’i atu

    TALI:
    Fai se tatalo mo a’u
    O a’u fo’i mo oe
    Pele, i aso uma
    ta te vava mamao
    E tagi lo’u fatu
    ma alu pea
    Ou te manatua
    pea oe i lo’u fatu

    A mafatia oe ma mamao
    Pele, i lo’u fatu, e le afaina
    Leai se tasi o le a ia fa’aluaina
    Ui ina le tau o la’u va’ai
    a e manatua pea oe i ao ma po
    Ia e manuia se’ia ou fo’i atu

    It might be close to your bed time
    Darling I will say a prayer for you
    That you’d be blessed
    Until I return

    Please tell all the children
    That I will swiftly come lest they waited long
    That you’d be blessed
    Until I return

    Please say a prayer for me
    And I for you
    Darling, in each day
    That we are far apart
    My heart is pleading
    continually
    Thinking of you
    Deep within my heart

    If you’re struggling with the distance
    Darling in my heart there’s nothing wrong
    There’s no one could ever take you place

    Although I don’t have you in sight
    But you’re in my heart both day and night
    That you’d be blessed
    Until I return.
