Tahi Nei Taru Kino

Tahi nei taru kino
Mahi whaiaipo
Kei te wehenga
Aroha kau ana

Chorus
Haere mai ra
Ki ahau nei ra
Te aroha tino nui
Haere mai
Kore au e noho
Hoatu taku ringa
Kei huri ke koe
Whakakaitoa i muri
Titiro atu au
Tahuri ke koe
Kei roto i a koe
Pirangi mai ana

Like a pesky weed
You play at love
And when we are apart
Your love diminishes

Chorus
Come then
To me
For my love for you is great
Come to me

I will not sit still
I give you my hand
But you may still turn away
In jest later

Oh when I look at you
You turn your face away
But in your heart, dear
You want me only
