LOVELY WORLD
Lyrics & Music - Opetaia Foa'i

And with a sigh
when it's over
E heai he haolotoga
aua te pepelo
Vagana holoi mata
e mataga te lalolagi

He malolo ke leva
e lahi mea fia fai
na leo e fakalogia
te fakamatakutaku

E iei toto i te fola
ulu valea ma fatu tafetoto
e fetoho mo he lelei
ifo ki te mahini
tena te matai

It's a lovely world
when there's freedom
from these lies
it's a lovely world
when we wipe the sleep
from our eyes

Te lalolagi te manaia
kafai e he iei e he iei
te lalolagi te mataga
kafai e iei ei e iei ei
we still got time

There's no freedom
because of lies
til' we wipe the sleep
from our eyes
there's no decency in the world

Can't rest for long
there's so much to do
for the noise we hear
is relentless fear

There's blood on the floor
Foolish heads and bleeding hearts
will always want more
worshipping the machine
now their master


It's a lovely world when
there isn'tany lies and indecency.
It’s a terrible world
when there are is.
