Goto atu le la

Aniseto Falemoe | 3 comments

A flirty song about what happens when the sun sets and a guy can’t get a girl out of his mind, and then it’s time to head out into the night.

Goto atu le la
o’o mai le po
sa e taoto ai i lou moega
lelei tofaga e mo oe le uo

Lou moega lilo sa ou miti i ai
faimai ua sogi atu
ua e tali mai
noataga ua tatala mai

Taimi e o evaga i le pouliuli
ta moomia oe ma faasino ala
ae e faimai o ita e taumulimuli

Leai, leai oe suga
luga au tala ula
pea tauaso ai lou mafaufau
ia maua sou talitonuga

Su’e mai le taele o le sami loloto
e faigofia oe pe to’ilalo popo
e faigata ona ou aea le olo

Lotu ia ta upu ina ia taunuu
lau miti savalo ia
ua ou misia se tasi ua le filifilia

Naunau atu suga faigata le alofa
a fai toe foi mai, toe fia vaai
ma fai mea uma nau ta masani mai ai

A e, a le tutusa loto ma mafaufauga
leai o se mea e mafai
i lo’u aumau ai, ua seu foi ita i lau va’ai

Leai o se mea e mafai
i lo’u auai mai, ua seu fo’i ita i lau va’ai

    4th line
    lelei tofaga e mo oe le uo
    ..
    fai mai ua ou sogi atu
    ua tali mai
    noataga ua tatala mai

    e faigata ona ou aea le olo

    leai o se mea e mafai
    I lo’u aumai ai
    Ua seu foi ita i lau vaai

    ma fai mea uma na taua masani mai ai
    lau miti sa valoia
