Taute Lo’u Au

This poet is eloquently expressing fear that this love might be over. Sau ia oe taute lo'u au se'i fai sau tala O tumau pea ita i sou lagona i le mafutaga O ou foliga ma ou fofoga fiafia mata'ata'ata O lo'o tumau pea oe la'u rosa, la'u fua matala O lo'o tumau pea oe...

Sosefina

Sosefina is the Samoan way of saying, "Josephine." This poor guy is just not sure if Sosefina is really his or not. Is her love real? La'u filifiliga i le toe / mo le amataina O le ta mafutaga ina ia maua se uiga E le suamalie pe a faigofie Pe a tutusa ta'ua i le loto...

Naumati lagona

(Laga Savea performs this gorgeous rendition of a Five Star classic.) Destitute and alone, this guy compares that feeling to a desperate thirst for water, or wine that's become bitter, or a ship that's run aground... Feeling that pain....

Lo’u Nei Tino

This jilted lover silently pleads for his woman to love him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SS_m8B1jIjY (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...

La’u Lupe

A "lupe" is a pigeon. It's also what we use to describe someone beloved, especially someone who has "flown" away. O la'u lupe ua lele i le vao Ma manu tafafao Leai se upu e faimai mo a'u, yeah Sa ou nofo ma va'ava'ai Pe e te fo'i mai O la'u lupe po'o fea o e i ai Lo'u...

Tali maia

Something is weighing heavily on this poet's mind. Has his true love changed her mind about him? Why won't she say something? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IX3Sd5canmg Tali maia o 'oe lo'u au Sei fa'amalu ai lo'u mafaufau Fa'amalu ai fo'i lou tu'inanau Ma lo'u...

Oso Ae Le La

A beautifully poetic and pensive song about death, duty and rebirth. Oso ae le la, ua ou fiafia Manatua le oti ou te talia O fugala'au ua teuteu ina Saunia le valaau ia e taliaina Ua leai se tuinanau Matala le tuugamau Lou tiute ia logomai Ia ou sao atu ai A fai ua e...
