Sau ia oe lou au

Guy expressing his love for his darling and asking her if she loves him

(O faigata ma tiga, o mea uma, oute inu iai)

Sau ia oe lo’u au se’i ta’u maia po’o ua na o ita
Ta’oto mai i o’u autafa ma musumusu mai i lo’u taliga
Se’i ta’u maia, pe te alofa moni dear ia ta’ita
Aua ne’i e galoina le ta feagaiga
Nai ou mafaufauga tu’u pea i aso uma
Le fia vaai ia oe le manamea i taimi uma
Lo’u fatu a pei a pe i o’u mafaufauga
Mo’omo’oga mo oe lo’u au i aso uma

Ole sami, o mauga ma vao, oute tauasa ai
O faigata ma tiga, o mea uma oute inu iai

Sau ia oe lo’u au se’i ta’u maia po’o ua na o ita
Ta’oto mai i o’u autafa ma musumusu mai i lo’u taliga
Se’i ta’u maia, pe te alofa moni dear ia ta’ita
Aua ne’i e galoina le ta feagaiga
Ole sami, o mauga ma vao, oute tauasa ai
O faigata ma tiga, o mea uma oute inu iai
Ole sami, o mauga ma vao, oute tauasa ai
O faigata ma tiga, o mea uma oute inu iai
Ole sami, o mauga ma vao, oute tauasa ai
O faigata ma tiga, o mea uma oute inu iai

    It’s nice if you can put the English for all the songs.

      Come now my love and tell me if I’m the one
      lay down besides me and whispers into my ear
      Confess to me now whether your love for me is pure
      Please don’t forget our bond and our oath
      My hope continually every day
      Was to see you my love at all the times
      My heart about to fail with my imagination
      My desire for you my love every day

      At the sea the mountains and forests I will push through
      All the sufferings and pain and all I must endure

      Come now my love and tell me if I’m the one
      lay down besides me and whispers into my ear
      Confess to me now whether your love for me is pure
      Please don’t forget our bond and our oath
      My hope continually every day
      Was to see you my love at all the times
      My heart about to fail with my imagination
      My desire for you my love every day

      At the sea the mountains and forests I will push through
      All the sufferings and pain and all I must endure
      At the sea the mountains and forests I will push through
      All the sufferings and pain and all I must endure
      At the sea the mountains and forests I will push through
      All the sufferings and pain and all I must endure
