"Unstoppable" is a deleted song from the 2016 feature film Moana. Lin-Manuel Miranda portrays Moana as the story of Maui and his disappearance is told to an audience.

Although the song was ultimately cut from the film, a bit of the melody can be heard when Moana is attempting to teach herself to navigate and find Maui.

Lyrics

Miranda:
Abandoned by his parents
And raised by the gods
Who could see he was destined for greatness
Though he was no bigger
Than you or me as a baby
He was a demigod!

Ensemble:
Wow!

Miranda:
With lightning speed
And he gave our people all the things we need
Yes, indeed

We were crawling on the ground
He looked around and said
"You need a little more space!"
And he raised the sky
So we could walk, so we could fly

Ensemble:
We were crawling on the ground
He looked around and said
"You need a little more space!"
And he raised the sky
So we could walk, so we could fly

Miranda:
We were walking in the dark
'Til Maui found a spark
Down in the Underworld
He climbed up higher and higher
Bringing the gift of fire

Ensemble:
We were walking in the dark
'Til Maui found a spark
Down in the Underworld
He climbed up higher and higher
Bringing the gift of fire

Miranda:
When Maui was around
We were unstoppable
We shattered all the rules, ran free
We torn down every wall
And we answered the call of the sea

We used to sail with gods
We were unstoppable

Ensemble:
Unstoppable!

Miranda:
To islands we could go explore

Ensemble:
Explore!

Miranda:
With every breaking dawn
Our adventures would go on beyond the shore

Maui taught us how to see the waves
Maui taught us how the sea behaves
Maui taught us how to see the skies
How to see the way to seagull flies

Maui taught how the stars could guide us
The secrets that the ocean can provide us
How to see our way through wind and rain
And know the way back home is there inside us

We ran the world
We were unstoppable
We learned to sail the seas alone
With every escapade
We were brave and unafraid of the unknown

We gathered up our strength
We were unstoppable

Ensemble:
Unstoppable!

Miranda:
We chased the long horizon line

Ensemble:
...zon line!

Miranda:
We faced tremendous odds
But we rumbled with the gods
And we were fine

Hey, master of disguise
He could assume any form, any shape or size
He used to fight fantastic monsters
Take 'em by surprise

Ensemble:
Master of disguise
He could assume any form, any shape or size
He used to fight fantastic monsters
Take 'em by surprise

Miranda:
Until that fateful night
The only time he ever lost a fight
A thousand years ago
Against a demon named...

All:
Te Pō!
Te Pō!
Te Pō!
Te Pō!

Miranda:
Te Pō was a brutal land spirit. Legend says she devoured Maui whole, and with the disappearance of Maui came the end of our voyages.

The villainous Te Pō did the impossible
And Maui, just like that, was gone
Our demigod, our friend
Fought for us until the end
And he lives on

For a thousand years, we have made Motunui our home. But there can be a new Maui, a new generation.

I am Moana
I am unstoppable
I know big the world can be
If Maui lives in you
We can sail across the blue unending sea

We're ready for what's next
We are unstoppable

Ensemble:
Unstoppable!

Miranda:
We want to see the world beyond the shore
For Maui years ago
Taught us everything we know
So let's explore!

We want more!
We want more!
We want more!
Unstoppable!
