Hey Uce I know you find it hard to speak thinking this act of speaking up will only make you weak Kaukala mai I know we were taught to be strong And I mean all affection implanted into this song I'm here for you E ui iga kigā lau faku I just can't stand to see you hurt Kaumafai gagā magakau I know you're feenin and you're feeling for some love So you keep dreaming uce I've seen it in your tears there's so much pain Kakou ola ma le magakau e fu’e I kakou le fusipau If we ever decided to let it rain, but I'm just sayin I love you uce and I don’t want you hurting yourself As this facade of being strong only hurts your mental health But take your time uce Take all the time and space you need Just text up when you're ready. I see you sitting there Catching your tear drops in your hands Hiding behind that mask Crying out when will this all end You don’t have to struggle in silence You’re more stronger than you seem We can both get through this temporary suffering At every tunnel's end Just know that there is light Know that you got a friend Just know that everything will be alright Alright You don’t have to struggle in silence You’re more stronger than you seem We can both get through this temporary suffering You don’t have to struggle in silence You’re more stronger than you seem We can both get through this temporary suffering You don’t have to struggle in silence You’re more stronger than you seem We can both get through this temporary suffering You don’t have to struggle in silence You’re more stronger than you seem We can both get through this temporary suffering At every tunnel's end Just know that there is light Know that you got a friend Just know that everything will be alright Alright
