lyrics

WAIRANGI
Mokemoke ana au 
I te pō Rāhoroi 
Mokemoke ana au 
Me te rama kānara 
Kore rawa ia, e mōhio 
Ki ōku pōraruraru
Kore ia e mōhio 
Me whāki rawa rā e au 

Wairangi ana ngā mahara 
 
Kua hipa te wā e te tau 
Kai taku unu toru au 
He raru kai te haere 
Whākina mai e te tau 
Rongo ana ōku kōiwi 
Rongo ana ōku toto 
He aha kē te mate? 
Kua āhua weko nei te rama 
Kore ia e mōhio 
Ki ōku pōraruraru 
Kore rawa ia e mōhio 
Me whāki rawa rā e au 
 
Wairangi ana ngā mahara 
 
Kore ia e mōhio 
Ki ōku pōraruraru 
Kore rawa ia e mōhio 
Me whāki rawa rā e au 
 
Wairangi ana ngā mahara 

SANITY
I sit alone
on a Saturday night
I sit alone
I sit by the candlelight
But he, he don’t know
What is going on with me
He don’t even know
I’m gonna tell him so

I lose my sanity

Time has passed baby
I’m onto my third GnT
Something’s wrong
Wont you tell me baby
I got feelings in my bones
I got feelings in my blood
What is wrong?
The candlewick seems stuck but
He don’t know
What is going on with me
He don’t even know
I’m gonna tell him so

I lose my sanity

But he, he don’t know
What is going on with me
He don’t even know
I’m gonna tell him so

I lose my sanity
