Wairua is a song encouraging ones belief in their natural instinct or spirit, we call 'wairua'. At times of adversity and hardship, it's that very natural instinct that will direct you. It's by trusting in that 'wairua' you will reach your full potential, so let your 'wairua' soar...

Lyrics:

Ka rāngona ana te wairua
Ko hiako ka hīnawanawa
E kore rawa e tūwhera
ki te kore e rāngona

Te tauronarona o roto
ānō nei he waikare i te whatumanawa
E kōrengarenga ana tēnei puna
Kei a koe te tikanga anei rā te waiora

Chorus:
Te wairua, tukuna ki te ao
Te wairua, tukuna kia rere
Te wairua 2x
He mea whakaawe

Waiho mā wairua koe e kawe
Ēngari te ngaringari i te kore
Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu
Ehara rawa i te ōkiko, ēngari rā, he hononga
Te tauronarona o roto
ānō nei he waikare i te whatumanawa

E kōrengarenga ana tēnei puna
Kei a koe te tikanga anei rā te waiora

Chorus:
Te wairua, tukuna ki te ao
Te wairua, tukuna kia rere
Te wairua 2x
He mea whakaawe
Waiho mā wairua koe e kawe

Winawina tātou
Na mata i mea
Taupī, Taupā
Katikati mōu rā
Ka puta nei koe nā, hā! 2x

Takahia paki te pitipiti paki
ki te paopao paki te pitipiti paki
Hei tama, tū tama rā, 2x

Takahia paki te pīti pīti paki
ki te MAIMOA paki te pīti pīti paki
Hei tama, tū tama rā, (hā) 2x

Chorus:
Te wairua, tukuna ki te ao
Te wairua, tukuna kia rere
Te wairua 2x
He mea whakaawe

Waiho mā wairua koe e kawe x3
HWAIRUA...

The essence of soul and spirit tingles the skin.
An essence that isn't truly felt until one opens up

Once confronted by internal debate, a source of life and inspiration springs within you.
A spring-well of instinct and a soul that is completely yours

It is your SPIRIT - may it spread around the world
It is your SOUL - let it fly and soar
Filled with instinct and inspiration that can guide you to your full potential

A little wairua is better than none at all, be it small or large - it is still a gift.

Although it may not be tangible, it's a connection blind to the naked eye

Once confronted by internal debate, a source of life and inspiration springs within you.
A spring-well of life and soul that is completely yours

It is your SPIRIT - may it spread around the world
It is your SOUL - let it fly and soar
A subtle means of inspiration and spiritual flow that can guide you to your full potential

Stomp clap the beat the beat clap, to the pound pound clap, the beat the beat CLAP!

Stand up and let your wairua guide you!

It is your SPIRIT - may it spread around the world
It is your SOUL - let it fly and soar
Filled with instinct and inspiration that can guide you to your full potential
