"More" is a deleted song from the 2016 feature film Moana. It is sung by Moana as she expresses her wishes to go beyond Motunui's reef and see what is out there. Tui and Sina express worry for their longing daughter as she recalls her grandmother, Tala's, teachings about her wayfinding ancestors. Later, after Tala's passing, she ultimately decides to leave Motunui and revive wayfinding.

While some of the lyrics are kept in the final cut of the film, More was ultimately replaced by How Far I'll Go.

Lyrics

Moana:
I count the steps from one end
Of my island to the other
It's a hundred steps from where I sleep to the sea
And when I say I've learned all there is to know
Well, there's another
Little island lesson Gramma Tala shows me

I know where I am
From the scent of the breeze
The ascent of the climb
From the tangle of the trees
From the angle of the mountain
To the sand on our island shore
I've been here before

There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always more
Someday I'll be
Out on the sea
And I'm gonna see more

There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always--

Tui and Villagers:
Moana, slow down!

Moana:
Sorry! I'm in somebody's way
They do the same thing everyday
They work, they eat, they sleep
They pray, they tell me

Moana and Villagers:
"Moana, calm down!"

Moana:
The other kids
Just dance and play
How can you play?
There's so much out there to explore

Tui:
She stares at the sky
She stumbles down the beaches
She mumbles all the names
That her Gramma Tala teaches

Moana:
And I wanna soar

Tui:
With one foot here
And another in the distant past

Moana:
So much to explore

Sina:
She's growing up too fast

Moana:
Like I've said before
There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always more
One day, I'll be brave
And sail on the wave
That leads me to more

There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always more

My father, the chief
Says don't cross the reef
But, oh, every turn I take
Every trail I track
Every path I make
Every road leads back to the sea
I'm standing at the edge of the sea
As they all say

Moana and Villagers:
"Moana, slow down"
"Moana, dream small"
"Moana, don't drown"

Moana:
Can you drown at the call of the sea?
'Cause I can hear it calling me

Matai Vasa and Wayfinders:
Aue, aue!

Moana:
A thousand years ago
We used to sail to distant islands
A thousand years ago
Maui spoke to the sea
So maybe, just maybe
I was born to break the silence
I know my story
Could be extraordinary
I know my story
Doesn't end at the shore

There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always more
I'm gonna break through
And find something new
I'm gonna find more

There's gotta be more
I know there's more
There's always more
One day, I'll decide
To roll with the tide
And I'm gonna see...

Villagers:
Moana, stand tall

Moana:
I will cross the divide
I will ride
I will see what's on the other side

Villagers:
Moana, stand proud

Moana:
With the ocean as my guide
On the tide
I will go where no one's ever been before
There's always more!

She showed me day after day
How to find my way
She taught me how to rely
On the wind and sky
She named me after the sea
She believed in me

I know we used to be bold
From the tales she told
I know she left me prepared
From the things she shared
There was more she wanted to see

Staring at the barrier
Together on the shore
We practiced all the names
Of everyone who came before me
Voyagers, warriors
Ancestors in our line
Their blood runs in mine

She always knew more
She hungered for more
She taught me more
And somehow I know
She'd want me to go

To navigate, you have to
Keep your island in your mind
You know what lies ahead of you
Remember what's behind
You wanna find the answers
To the questions that you still don't know

You just have to go find more
I wanna know more
There's always more
How can I stay?
She taught me the way

Every turn I take
Every trail I track
Every path I make
Every road leads back to the sea
I'm sailing to the edge of the sea
And it calls me
"Moana, go now!"
"Moana, don't stall!"
"Don't worry about how"
"Just answer the call of the sea"
There's nothing there holding me

If I had time
I'd say goodbye

I will cross the divide
I will ride
I will see what's on the other side
With the ocean as my guide
On the tide
I will go where no one's ever been before
There's always more!
