I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name
They have stolen the heart from inside you
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are
Lyrics from "Moana"
Music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mark Mancina
Performed by Auli'i Cravalho, Matthew Ineleo, Olivia Foai, Opetaia Foa'i and Vai Mahina
You know who you are. Your truth is your truth. Whether it is darkness or light, it is your truth. You can change the winds, and drench your true north in the love and peace that comes from the light. Or you can remain in the dark. The choice is yours.
THE truth is the light. But it is only YOUR truth if you choose to believe.
Knowing who you are is crucial to knowing where you are. They go hand in hand. Your journey and the process you are undergoing is dark in the light of a dark truth, or revolutionary in the light of THE truth. The journey, through the pain, the hardship, the rocky seas, is beautiful and truthful, authentic and glorious, if your truth is THE truth.
What do you believe? You know who you are.
I know a girl from an island
She stands apart from the crowd
She loves the sea and her people
She makes her whole family proud
Sometimes the world seems against you
The journey may leave a scar
But scars can heal and reveal just
Where you are
The people you love will change you
The things you have learned will guide you
And nothing on earth can silence
The quiet voice still inside you
And when that voice starts to whisper
Moana you've come so far
Do you know who you are?
Who am I?
I am a girl who loves my island
I'm the girl who loves the sea
It calls me
I am the daughter of the village chief
We are descended from voyagers
Who found their way across the world
They call me
I've delivered us to where we are
I have journeyed farther
I am everything I've learned and more
Still it calls me
And the call isn't out there at all, it's inside me
It's like the tide; always falling and rising
I will carry you here in my heart you'll remind me
That come what may
I know the way
I am Moana!
