IULIANA
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

kitea koe i toku mafaufau
ofo au ite gali ou foliga
tau vaka kua taunuku
manaia o te sui o tau malaga tena
malaga vena

loto tele loto malohi
mata ola matapoto ki mea
ote lalolagi
e kikila ake i te alofa
teuteu te toko
faka tumau ai tatou

hau te matagi fakafiafia ai toku loto
o te alofa tena
paku e mataka
kamata fou ke faka poto
te agaga kimataga
ko Iuliana

fakamalamalama Iuliana
fakamakeke Iuliana
o te fiafiaga Iuliana
aue aue Iuliana

fai ai toku folafolaga
toe kave te alofa kia koe
e te lahi lele o te alofa
magamaga te lagi
te kata ki taua olaga

saw you in my mind
amazed at how beautiful
you looked
your ship has certainly landed
good fortune has come
brought by a change in your journey
the journey you took

your confidence and determination
sharp mind and quick witted
tested by our adventures
of the world
but look at all this love
I’m taking care of the one
that holds us all together

a warm wind comes
to warm my heart
and I know it to be love
shedding your skin
to begin a new
understanding
for the soul, a new beginning
for Iuliana

new understanding for Iuliana
new found strength for Iuliana
bringing much joy for Iuliana

I made a promise
to return the love
you gave to me
and there is so much love
causing the sky to open up
smiling
impressed with your new existence
