AMATAGA (The beginning)
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i 

Amataga

verse1

fai te mea e tatau
mo te lalolagi
ke amanakia nei
kave fakatatau

verse 2

tuku lahiga kave
foki lumanaki
fakahoa lelei aho
fakamoemoega mo a taeao

prech

mafaufauga lumanaki
hologa o te olaga
felau na mea a tatou
i te alofa
ke agai ki koga fou

chorus

ke toe foki manako au ki ei
toe kamata te aloha
ma fealofani
talitonu ietahi loto
amataga vena

 

 

The beginning

verse1

play our part in this world
to care for it
take what you need

verse 2

put back more than you take
it’s to our future that we give
how it used to be
in the beginning

prech

with the future in mind
with our lives we go on
sharing what we have
with love and hope
rise to a new horizon

chorus

i want to return
to the beginning
to love and respect
believing in each other
like it was
in the beginning
