Ua ou vaivai ua ou fia moe

Lillian Faifili, Penina o Tiafau | 0 comments

A song sung before going to bed because he’s tired, but can’t stop thinking about his love.

Ua ou vaivai ua ou fia moe
Ae le mafai na galo oe
I si o’u faamoemoe
Moe oe
Ae le se’i ta’utino mai
Pe e te alofa pe leai
Ae le se’i fai ma se vaai
I si o’u nei tino vaivai

Pe ana e iloa
Le mea ua ou iloa
O le alofa e faigata
Faigata ma faailoa
Oi se mea ua faigata
O loto le tutusa
Ua alai ona le maua ai
Se i’uga o lenei mea
(Music break then repeat chorus)
