KE FAITATALA (We need to talk)
Lyrics - Opetaia Foa'i, Music - Opetaia Foa'i/Malcolm Smith

E tiga loto
E fanoanoa loto
E iei he tahi faiga

E iai na mea
Tatau ke lea
Na mea e tatau ke ko iloa
E ko kitea to kavega e mamaha
Fakaputugia i he tai o te mataku

E ke faitatala
Mafai ai ki taua oi malamalama
E ke faitatala
Pito hili mea moni ke maua
Mo ki taua

Kua lokagia ina aho kua teka
Hikogia meake e fano vale
Kae fai e iloa au mea hehe na fai
Hove e he ea koe na fai
Kako koe lava te paku ki ei

Polokalame ke pule ki te ola
Mau mataloa i kina
E ve ona lea ai koe
Te tahi vaega e ala
Kafai koe e moe
E moe koe e ala
E kui o alatino

It hurts deeply
It saddens the heart
But there is another way

There are things you need to say
Things I need to know
I see the heavy burden you carry
Gathered over a sea of tears

We need to talk
So we can understand
Discover all that is good
All that is true
Discover all that is most precious
To me and you

You're locked in the past
Surrounded by your fears
Of what you will lose
If your wrongs are found out
Tho you are responsible
It is your undoing

Programmed for suicide
remains there so long
as you say they are
another part of you
awakens when you sleep
sleeps when you're awake
runs beneath your radar
