Loimata maligi

Love song: man’s sadness because the woman he loves no longer loves him


Loimata ua maligi
ua ou leiloa po’o le a
po’o sa’u agasala ea ua e fa’apena
Le maua o se moe na o le manatu ia oe
Ua uma ai lo’u nei fa’amoemoe

Timuga ma le la
ou te alu pea
i lo’u alofa ia oe dear
E le mamulu ese lenei avega
Masalo o lo’u alofa fa’avalea

Mauga e mafuli maia se’i tanumia ai
Po’o le sami e tumu i i’a fe’ai
Lagona i tino ua o’o mai le vaivai
Ua ou le iloa se mea a fai

Tu ia i luga, na te fa’asoa
Oute inu pea i ai
aua o la’u tautoga
Se matagi ea se’i e ave’esea
le mea faigata i aso uma
