Lyrics

LELEI ILO TENEI (Better than this)
Lyrics - Opetaia Foa'i, Music - Opetaia Foa'i & Malcolm Smith

Kikila i mata foliga ou kitea
Te fanoanoa i faiga lalolagi
Ko halahala auala i he mea
Amanaki ke malaga kehe

Oho fiti ki luga
Hili atu tena
Tuku koe fano ki ei

Hili atu tena
Hili atu i lo tenei
Lelei atu tena
Lelei atu i lo tenei


Tagata kino tino e hafia
Tohotoho koe ki lalo lava
Tamate ai koe holomalie
Tamate ai foki to agaga


E he tatau havali
Koe i tenei heoli
Lahi na mea lelei
Kafai e ke kitea
Maua ai mea uma
Te ke iloa fiafia

 

Look in the eyes
See it in their faces
Seeking searching for answers
Ways of the world
Dreaming of a different way

Jump up and down
It’s best that way
Just let yourself go

It’s best that way
It's much greater than this
It's better than that
It's much better than this

Bad man dumbing you down
Pulling you down
Killing you slowly
Killing your soul

You don't need to walk
Through all this hell
There's much good
If you look
It's all there for you
To discover just how good
