    I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors) – Moana


    Writers: Mark Mancina and Lin-Manuel Miranda


    [Gramma Tala:] 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
    Moana, listen
    Do you know who you are?

    [Moana:] Who am I?
    I am the 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 remind me
    That come what may, I know the way
    I am Moana!
