"An Innocent Warrior" is a song from the Disney animated feature Moana. It serves as a starting point for Moana's bond with the Ocean as a baby.

Plot

The song begins after the baby turtle reaches the ocean after being protected by a baby Moana from seagulls. The Ocean, sensing Moana's purity for the baby turtle, opens a path for for her to walk with a trail of seashells to collect.

As Moana is curious of the wonders of the sea, the Ocean opens up to her as they interact. She then suddenly notices the heart of Te Fiti floating inside it towards her, in which it gifts her with the gem afterwards.

Upon hearing her father Chief Tui calling out for her, they stopped immediately, with the Ocean undoing its work on Moana. It then carried Moana safely to the shore as she drops the heart. Afterwards, he finds her at the shore as the song ends.

Lyrics

Ou mata e matagi
Ou loto mamaina toa
Manatu atu
Taku pelepele
Pa mai to mafanafanaga
Saolotoga tenei

Manatunatu
Ki tamafine

Your eyes so full of wonder
Your heart an innocent warrior
There’s a task for you
My dearest one
Let it flow over you
This freedom you feel
And your deep thoughts

Our young girl
Your eyes so full of wonder

Trivia

  • According to an interview with singer Vai Mahina[1], the song was originally "Loimata E Maligi" which was written by Opetaia Foa'i in memory of the 19 females who lost their lives in a fire at Motufoua Secondary School on the island of Vaitupu, Tuvalu in 2000. The song was rewritten to "An Innocent Warrior" to fit in the theme of Moana.
