Ancient Lullaby

Hear the moonlight calling me
O o o o eo
Calling from the skies above
O o o o eo
Way past midnight
O o o o so
All you children go to sleep
O o o o so
In the village square
Mama and her baby
As of long ago
Sing the Ancient Lullaby

Oi puru oi rike ae na ruma ne wona
O I bole a moke ao tatangi a
A o tatangi a tatangi a

Hear footsteps on the ground
E e e e ello
Coming closer to your house
E e e e ello
Kodopito is hear
E e e e hello
Looking for a naughty child
E e e e hello
In the village square
Mama and her baby
As of long ago
Sing the Ancient Lullaby.

ARROWS FROM YESTERDAY

Since the day you left
I have been all alone
Every golden sunrise reminds me of your smile.
And every blood-red sunset is a promise of a tomorrow
Without you.
These things that I keep in my heart

Pouring my heart out at the injustices I endure…but
Never expecting you to acknowledge me.
Every memory is like an arrow from yesterday
Poisoned with the sweetness of your loving intentions
They tear through this old heart of mine, every time
I think of you.
