"We Are One [The Lion King II: Simba's Pride]" as written by and Gene Simmons....
As you go through life you'll see
There is so much that we
Don't understand

And the only thing we know
Is things don't always go
The way we planned

When it seems all your dreams come undone

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?

Your journey has only begun

Is our pride, deep inside
We are one

Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one

One family under the sun

You will find when you see
We are one

Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one
Family, family, we are one

    Song Meaningthis songs meaning to me is the meaning of life. Simba tells his daughter that life's not handed to you on a plate and life does go on if you believe deep enough. this song is my life meaning and this song teaches us true meanings of real life

    Song MeaningI've listened to this song over and over again and it is by far my favorite song from the Lion King trilogy. The meaning behind this song in my eyes can be many different things. Based on the movie and the fact that Kiera said she doesn't want to be a Princess in Simba's eyes he's stating that this is life and you can't run from it. It's not going to end. It is what it is kind of thing, but every Disney fan knows that this song has much more of a deeper meaning to it. Now if you take the fact that the "outsiders" are a shade or two darker than the pridelanders you'll understand that this movie specifically was a racist movie. Now remember when Kiera and Kovu are standing between Simba and Zira and Kiera states that a wise king once told her that "We are one". Well its in a way saying no one is different. We're all the same inside and out. It only makes sense when you put two and two together. What is the true meaning? Well, it's in the title. We are one. "We are a part of each other."
