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?

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 tauanau

Sa fai ‘oe ma a’u uo
O ananafi fo’i ma le aso
Nai ou uiga fa’amaualalo
‘E le fa’agalo

{ CHORUS }

Afai ‘e te le fiafia
Alofa ma taumafai
afai fo’i e leai
Pele ‘ea se’i tali mai

Ua ave pea oe ‘i lou agaga
O ‘oe fuga fai ma a’u agasala
Pe o se avega ‘ua mamafa
‘I lo’u nei olaga

Answer me oh my love
Just what sin have I been guilty of
Tell me how I came to lose your love
Please answer me… my love
You were mine yesterday
I believe that love was here to stay
Won’t you tell me where I’ve gone astray
Please answer me… my love

Ua ave pea oe i lo’u agaga
‘O ‘oe fuga fai ma a’u agasala
Pe o se avega ‘ua mamafa
I lo’u nei olaga

Pe o se avega ua mamafa
I lo’u nei olaga

  11. To Maluhia: This is actually called Answer Me, My Love, sung by the late Nat King Cole . So I’m sorry I don’t know the Samoan translation, but I do know that it’s probably a little different from the original lyrics. I’d like to have the translation too. šŸ˜€ But a very beautiful song.. I used to do this song with a very good friend of mine, Sakiusa Bulicokocoko, whose keyboard player sang this beautifully!.
