Where You Are is the opening song of the Disney animated feature Moana.

Primarily sung by Chief Tui, the song is a celebration of the island paradise of Motunui and the lifestyle of its inhabitants, who encourage Moana to embrace her roots and disregard the idea of journeying beyond the reef to explore the ocean. This is the third song of the movie.

Lyrics

Chief Tui: Moana, make way, make way
Moana, it's time you knew
The village of Motonui is all you need
The dancers are practicing
They dance to an ancient song
(Who needs a new song? This old one's all we need)

This tradition is our mission
And Moana, there's so much to do (Make way)
Don't trip on the taro root, that's all you need
We share everything we make (We make)
We joke and we weave our baskets (Aha!)
The fishermen come back from the sea

Moana: I wanna see

Chief Tui: Don't walk away
Moana, stay on the ground now
Our people will need a chief and there you are

Chief Tui and Sina: There comes a day
When you're gonna look around
And realize happiness is where you are

Chief Tui: Consider the coconut (the what?)
Consider its tree
We use each part of the coconut, that's all we need

Sina: We make our nets from the fibers
The water's sweet inside
We use the leaves to build fires
We cook up the meat inside

Chief Tui: Consider the coconuts
The trunks and the leaves
The island gives us what we need

Moana: And no one leaves

Chief Tui: That's right, we stay
We're safe and we're well provided
And when we look to the future
There you are
You'll be okay
In time you'll learn just as I did

Chief Tui and Sina: You must find happiness right where you are

Gramma Tala: I like to dance with the water
The undertow and the waves
The water is mischievous, ha!
I like how it misbehaves
The village may think I'm crazy
Or say that I drift too far
But once you know what you like, well, there you are

You are your father's daughter
Stubbornness and pride
Mind what he says but remember
You may hear a voice inside
And if the voice starts to whisper
To follow the farthest star
Moana, that voice inside is who you are

Villagers: We make our nets from the fibers (We weave our nets from the fibers)
The water's sweet inside (And we'll taste the sweet inside)
We use the leaves to build fires (We sing these songs in our choir)
We cook up the meat inside (beat inside)


Chief Tui: The village believes in us (Ha! That's right!)
The village believes (Ha!)
The island gives us what we need
And no one leaves

Moana: So here I'll stay
My home, my people beside me
And when I think of tomorrow
There we are
I'll lead the way
I'll have my people to guide me
We'll build our future together

Villagers: Where we are

Moana: 'Cause every path leads you back to

Villagers: Where you are

Moana: You can find happiness right

Villagers: Where you are
Where you are
