An Innocent Warrior Song Lyrics

Ou mata e matagi
Ou loto mamaina toa
Manatu atu
Taku pelepele

Pa mai to mafanafanaga
Saolotoga tenei
Ki tamafine

Maua ai te lumanai
Ki tamafine
Ou mata e matagi

"An Innocent Warrior," performed by Vai Mahina, is a song that waves a narrative of inner strength, resilience, and the journey towards freedom and self-realization, particularly resonating with the themes of empowerment and cultural identity. Sung in a Polynesian language, the lyrics encapsulate the spirit of facing life's challenges with courage and determination.

The opening lines, "Ou mata e matagi" (My eyes are like the wind), sugest a sense of vision and foresight, indicating a person who is keenly aware of their surroundings and future possibilities. The eyes like the wind symbolize both the power to observe and foresee, as well as the fluidity and changeability of life.

"Ou loto mamaina toa" (My brave heart), conveys a strong internal fortitude. This phrase is a declaration of bravery and a resilient spirit. The heart is not just brave, but unwavering in the face of adversity, embodying the qualities of a warrior.

"Manatu atu Taku pelepele" (Thinking of my beloved) shows a deep connection with loved ones, adding a layer of emotional depth and motivation behind the bravery and resilience. This line suggests that the warrior's strength is also fueled by love and connection to others.

"Pa mai to mafanafanaga Saolotoga tenei Manatunatu Ki tamafine" (The comfort that comes, this freedom, thinking of the daughter) speaks to the idea of comfort and freedom, possibly attained through overcoming challenges. The reference to thinking of a daughter indicates a generational connection, perhaps implying that the struggles and victories are not just for oneself but also for future generations.

"Maua ai te lumanai Ki tamafine" (To find the future for the daughter) reinforces the theme of legacy and the desire to pave a better path for the next generation.

Overall, "An Innocent Warrior" is a powerful ode to resilience, bravery, and the enduring spirit of an individual facing life's challenges, all while being deeply rooted in love, connection, and the hope for a brighter future for those who come after.

Despite the information that the most part of the soundtrack has been created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, we see that this song is done by Vai Mahina, Sulata Foai-Amiatu, Matthew Ineleo.
Some part to this soundtrack is performed on the Polynesian (including other languages). The songs are very primitive as every folk song is. But ‘primitive’ is not ‘stupid’. It is rather simple & comprehensible.
For example, this song is about being a hero & following the wind, taking for the road only the most precious you have – your soul and freedom. He will be in shadow & will take a key to a thing called tamafine.
