lorrie_nohea The songs I've heard from Maisey give me chicken skin. My ancestors are Maori but I know nothing of my Maori culture sadly only my Hawaiian side. However, in every word or melody I've heard in any of Maisey's songs make me feel closer to something I can't explain. Know that I support and follow your music all the way from California always and am super appreciative for being able to listen and stream it ?. Mahalo for allowing me to be a part of your journey.

lyrics

Taku Mana:
(Kaitito nā Maisey Rika)
(ft. Ngā Tauira o Pao Pao Pao, Horomona Hora, Mahuia B-C)

Mai runga ki raro, mai i te whitinga mai o te rā ki te ao mārama
Mai anō, maiea, mai i te kunenga mai o te hua ki te hā tangata
Mihimihia, kawekawea, mākona
(he Atua, he tangata, he Atua, he tangata hi!)
Korōria, whakanuia, hei oranga
(he Atua, he tangata, te aroha e hi!)

Taku mana tiketike taku mana Māori e
I ahu mai i te Atua, i ahu mai i ōku Tīpuna, i ahu mai i te whenua, te moana e hi!
Taku ihi, taku wehi, taku wanawana

Maioro, maea, maiangiangi he māia tū Rangatira inā mōrearea
Miharo, Maioha, he tāonga te reo, te ao he mokopuna te oranga
Mihimihia, kawekawea, mākona
(he Atua, he tangata, he Atua, he tangata hi!)
Korōria, whakanuia, hei oranga
(he Atua, he tangata, te aroha e hi!)

Taku mana tiketike taku mana Māori e
I ahu mai i te Atua, i ahu mai i ōku Tīpuna, i ahu mai i te whenua, te moana e hi!
Taku ihi, taku wehi, taku wanawana (x3)

Ko au taku mana ko taku mana ko au
(Taku ihi, taku wehi, taku wanawana)
Ko au te whenua, te whenua ko au
(Taku ihi, taku wehi, taku wanawana)
Ko au te moana, te moana ko au
(Taku ihi, taku wehi, taku wanawana)
Ko au taku Mana, ko taku Mana ko au

Korōria, whakanuia!
