pokarekare ana lyrics – hayley westenra

pokarekare ana
nga wai o waiapu
whiti atu koe hine
marino ana e

e hine e
hoki maira
kamate au
-i te aroha e

tuhituhi taku rita
tuku atu taku ringi
kia kiti to iwi
raru raru ana e

e hine e
hoki maira
kamate au i could die
-i te aroha e

e hine e
hoki maira
kamate au
-i te aroha e

kamate au i could die
-i te aroha e of love for you

[english translation:]

stormy are the waters
of restless waiapu
if you cross them, girl
they will be calmed

oh girl
come back to me
i could die
of love for you

i write you my letter
i send you my ring
so your people can see
how troubled i am

oh girl
come back to me
i could die
of love for you

oh girl
come back to me
i could die
of love for you

i could die
of love (for you).
