Faigata se manatu

That feeling when it could have been you, but you missed the opportunity…

Ua faigata, o sou manatu
ua misi le va’a muamua ua alu
mafaufauga nei ua tino mai
leai se mea e mafai

Sasa’a maia sou alofa
Se upu malu mai lou fofoga
e magalo ai nei faigata
ma nei mea ua o’ona

le lalelei nai ou foliga
se mama auro i lou lima
pele tali mai mo ita
ae lei faataunuuina

le mafutaga ma oe le uo
pe ana tutusa ma lou aiga
ua pologa ai ma faigata
e le manana’o ia ita

o upu na fai le po mulimuli
mana’o i le alofa i se taimi umi
fesili atu ia i ta fanau
ua oa ma faauli

o lo’u alofa ua faamutaina
mai ou matua ma lou aiga
pei ai ona o lau afioga
ma pele ma lo’u mativa

E le alofa…
E pologa…
E faasese mai pea…
ua ou iloa…
Na ou tagi…
Maligi loimata…
te le vaai mai ea, ua lagona alofa…
te le vaai mai ea, ua lagona alofa…
