Song Lyrics

Know Who You Are Song Lyrics

I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name
I may have stolen the heart from inside you
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are

December, 14th 2016
"Know Who You Are" by Auli'i Cravalho, featured in Disney's "Moana," is a ssong of profound realization and reconciliation. The lyrics are succinct yet deeply meaningful, capturing a pivotal moment in the narrative where Moana addresses Te Kā, the central antagonist who was once the island goddess Te Fiti.

The opening line, "I have crossed the horizon to find you," signifies Moana’s jorney, not just across the physical expanse of the ocean, but also a metaphorical journey of understanding and empathy. She acknowledges Te Kā's true identity by saying, "I know your name." This line is symbolic of Moana's recognition of Te Kā's lost identity as Te Fiti, understanding the pain and transformation she underwent.

The phrase "I may have stolen the heart from inside you" refers to the central plot of the movie where the heart of Te Fiti is taken, leading to Te Kā's creation. This line is Moana's way of acknowledging the suffering and loss that Te Kā (Te Fiti) experienced, a key factor in her transformation into a destructive force.

However, the most powerful message is delivered in the lines "But this does not define you / This is not who you are / You know who you are." Moana challenges Te Kā to look beyond the hurt and anger that have consumed her, to remember her true self as Te Fiti, a being of creation and life. This moment of the song is transformative, as it's not just about Moana recognizing Te Kā's true identity, but also about helping Te Kā (Te Fiti) to realize and reclaim it for herself.

The song, therefore, is a beacon of understanding, forgiveness, and identity. It's about recognizing and returning to one's true self, despite the trials and changes one might have undergone. It emphasizes that one’s essence remains intact, even when obscured by hardship or loss.

Very short thing by Auli'i Cravalho, performed again in pop with folk Polynesian motifs. It lasts only one minute and some seconds but it has the incredible soul filling inside. It seems like that despite being performed in English solely, every line sung by performer is repeated on Polynesian, by a choir of local villagers.
It says about the love that is yet subtle but it has already been started between the two heroes, her and him, whom we don't know yet. We must also notice a spectacularly alluring invoice by Auli'i Cravalho, and we have already added this piece to our favorites in the browser.
