Ita e Ua Lilia

Punialavaa | 3 comments

This heartbreak is from a break up because one person’s family doesn’t approve of the relationship.

Ita e ua lili’a i na ua ou fa’alogoina
le le malie o si ou aiga ia ita
E te le’i ta’u maia ae ua uma ona ou iloaina
Tagi e o le loto, a e a motusia le masaniga

Fa’anoanoa lo’u loto, a e a motusia lo ta pale auro
Talofa e i le fa’auo, a e a goto le fetu ao
Tofa ‘oe Dear, o le a ‘ou malolo

Sa ou faapea ua tasi lava le manamea
Tulituli auku se’i tau i le iuga pe fa’apefea
A o lenei ua ou ‘ai niumea
Aue, ita e ae a afu i le tauvalea


E le galo i lou ulu lo ta va ma mea na tutupu
Na ou aumaia oe tu fa’alelei ii i si ou nu’u
Talu lo’u musu i se timu a e ma’ulu’ulu
Pasi a ta uo lea ne’i ave ane fa’aselemutu


Tofa ‘oe Dear, o le a ‘ou malolo
