This jilted lover silently pleads for his woman to love him.

(Young Lovers version)

Alu aso o le olaga
Faigata ua tiga
Ua le mafai lo’u tino
Ona tatali le alofa
Ou te tagi atu la’u pele
alofa mai ua ou lelava

{ CHORUS }

Lo’u nei tino ua vaivai
Le manogi fo’i o se mea e ‘ai
La’u pele ‘ea ia alofa mai

(x2)

Ala ai ona tagi atu
pele ‘ea i sou manatu
Te’i ita ua mao
mao atu o sou manatu
Pele ea o ita nei ua fia alu atu

{ CHORUS }

Agi maia o se matagi
se’i momoli atu la’u tali
O oe ‘ea ma a’u
ua tatau na faatalitali

Ou te tatalo i le Atua
alofa mai mo ta’ua

{ CHORUS }

    Fa’asa’o tatou upu fa’amolemole.

    Alu aso o le olaga, Faigata ua tiga,
    Ua le mafai e lo’u tino, ona tatali le alofa.
    Ou te tagi atu la’u pele, alofa mai ua ‘ou le lava.

    Lo’u nei tino ua vaivai, le manogi fo’i o se mea e ‘ai,
    La’u pele ‘ea ia alofa mai.x2

    Ala a’e i le tagi atu pele ‘ea i sou manatu,
    Te’i ita ua mao, mao atu i so’u manatu.
    Pele ‘ea o ita nei ua fia alu atu,

    Chorus…

    Agi maia o se matagi se’i momoli atu la’u tali,
    O oe ‘ea ma a’u ua tatau ona fa’atalitali.
    Ou te tatalo i le Atua, alofa mai mo ta’ua,

    Chorus…
