Nofo Mai aua te alu

Taps Band | 1 comment

The pain of losing a loved one

E pe ana mafai ona e nofo mai
Ua o’o ifo o’u tulivae
Loimata ua maligi fa’avai
E pe ana mafai ona e tautala mai
Ua pei ita se tagata
Ua mana’omia le toto se’i ola ai

{CHORUS}

Nofo mai aua te alu
Ua ou misia oe
Pei ana mafai lou alofa
Se’i ma momoe
Ole a ta fa’amavae
Ole a misia oe
Oute tatalo ia tumau le la
I o ta aso totoe

Se po’o e iloaina lo’u mafatia
Ta le fia tepa i aso ua alu
Loimata lava ole fiafia
Se, tautala mai ua ou vaivai
Ua sili ai lava le oti oute mapu ai

{CHORUS}

Nofo mai aua te alu
Ua ou misia oe
Pei ana mafai lou alofa
Se’i ma momoe
Ole a ta fa’amavae
Ole a misia oe
Oute tatalo ia  tumau le la
I o ta aso totoe

Ole a so’u sēsē i lo ta va
Ua mafua ai nei loimata
Ua faigata

(repeat chorus)
