|We Are One|
September 8, 1998
|“||Kiara: But what if I don't wanna be queen? It's no fun.
Simba: That's like saying you don't want to be a lion. It's in your blood...as I am. We are part of each other.
"We Are One" is a song composed by Tom Snow for The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. It was released on September 8, 1998, as part of the film's soundtrack. It is sung by Simba and Kiara as Simba teaches her that their family is one.
|As you go through life, you'll see|
|There is so much that we|
|And the only thing we know|
|Is things don't always go|
|The way we planned|
|But you'll see every day|
|That we'll never turn away|
|When it seems all your dreams come undone|
|We will stand by your side|
|Filled with hope and filled with pride|
|We are more than we are|
|We are one|
|If there's so much I must be|
|Can I still just be me|
|The way I am?|
|Can I trust in my own heart?|
|Or am I just one part|
|Of some big plan?|
|Even those who are gone|
|Are with us as we go on|
|Your journey has only begun|
|Tears of pain, tears of joy|
|One thing nothing can destroy|
|Is our pride, deep inside|
|We are one|
|We are one, you and I|
|We are like the earth and sky|
|One family under the sun|
|All the wisdom to lead|
|All the courage that you need|
|You will find when you see|
|We are one|
- There are several instrumental reprises of "We Are One" in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, including before Kiara's first hunt and during Kiara's marriage to Kovu.
- In Return to Pride Rock, the song is included along with a remix sung by Angélique Kidjo in partial English and partial African.
- The song was nominated for an Annie Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement for Music in an Animated Feature Production along with "My Lullaby".
- There is an error when Simba purrs and rubs his chin affectionately against Kiara, as lions are not able to purr continuously.
