lyrics

Te aroha i te ata
Tēnā whakarongo mai
Ki ahau
Whai au ki uta
Whaiā te oranga
Noho pūmau mō ake

Rikoriko kahukura whiti mai
Oho ake au pātuki tonu te ngākau
E te tau huri mai ki ahau

Auē, e ipo huri mai
Matemate au i te aroha
Mōu e te tau
Auē, minamina i te pō
Matemate au i te aroha
Mōu e te tau

Te manako
I te ata
Kia awhi atu
Tau awhi mai
Ka rongohia koe
Tō ūpoko
Ki tōku uma
Tau ai
Nā Anika Moa i whakapākehātia.
English translation by Anika Moa

I love you
In the morning
I need to tell you
Right now
If I’m walking forward with you
You need to realize
That you need me
Please be sure

All I see is glitter and gold
I feel alive my heart is out of control
Oh I really need to be with you

Baby wont you see me anymore
And I will do it do it do it till you love me again
Baby all I want is you tonight
And we can do it do it do it till you love me again

I need you
In the morning
If there’s a light on
Hold me close
And I need to kiss you
Feel your body
Rest your head
On my heart
