Tukuna Au [How Far I'll Go]

Kua noho, i te tapa o te tai nei
Mai anō ki te tai nei
Ngākaurua ana e
Aue, ahakoa rā te kāinga
Ka hoki mai ki te moana
Ahakoa te aha
 
Huri ke atu, taka kē ana
Ia te ara, hoki kē rawa
Ki te tānga-o-taku-manawa rā
E hao nei e
 
Tiro kau atu ki tahatū-o-te-rangi
Tukuna ahau, kia rapa ahau
I runga i te hau-kahaki ki tawhiti
Ka taea ahau
Tukuna ahau, kei huri te tai, ka mau
 
He tau te iwi nei ki te kāinga
Koa ana taku kāinga
Ā-muri, ā-mua
Ia tangata o te kāinga
Ko whai tūranga māna
'Nā whai taku tūranga
 
Aratakina, hikitia rā
Ki te whaia pea ka rarata
Hoi i roto nei, hia kē ana
Aue taukuri!
 
Pīataata rawa te kārohirohi
Tukuna ahau, kia rapa ahau
Ki te tai e kārangaranga mai ki ahau e
Tukuna ahau, ki tawhiti rā
Kia pae tata
 
Tiro kau atu ki tahatū-o-te-rangi
Tukuna ahau, kia rapa ahau
I runga i te hau-kahaki ki tawhiti
Ka taea ahau
Tukuna au!

From Apirana Paraone on YT.
He said: "Ahau and au mean the same thing and are used interchangeably."

Let me Go

I’ve been sitting at the water’s edge
Since way back
Conflicted
Alas, although I have my home
I return to the ocean
No matter what
 
I turn away, I fail again
Every path, returns
To my heart’s desire
And captures me
 
I look toward the horizon
Let me go, so I can search it
Carried far away by the winds
I can do it
Let me go, before the tide turns and keeps me here.
 
The people of home are settled here
My home is happy
All the time
Every person of my home
Has a position
I will find mine
 
I will lead, I will uplift
If I follow perhaps I’ll be docile
However inside of me is a desire
Oh dear!
 
The shimmering light is so bright
Let me go, so I can explore it
The tides are calling out to me
Let me go, into the distance
To bring the horizon nearer
 
I look toward the horizon
Let me go, so I can search it
Carried far away by the winds
I can do it
Let me go!
 
Thanks!
