Disney – He Lives In You lyrics

Night and the spirit of life calling
Oh, oh, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo
And the voice with the fear of a child answers
Oh, oh, iyo iyo mamela

Wait! There's no mountain too great
Hear these words and have faith

Oh, oh, iyo
Have faith
Hela hey mamela, hela hey mamela
Hela hey mamela, hela hey mamela

He lives in you, he lives in me (hela hey mamela)
He watches over everything we see
Into the waters, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you

Dream, and the voice in the wind whispers
Oh, oh, iyo, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo

Wait! There's no mountain too great
Hear these words and have faith
Oh, oh, iyo

He lives in you, he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the waters, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you


Ingonyama nengw enamabala
Ingonyama nengw enamabala

He lives in you, he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the water, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you

He lives in you (oh yeah), he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the water, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives, he lives, he lives, he lives in you

He lives, he lives, he lives in you
He watches over everything we see

    I'm not even christian but I can see how people make the connection. If you didn't know it was inspired by the lion king it would be the next logical jump. That's the beauty of art, of creating things, once you've created it - no matter your intention I ots meaning, people will be free to give it their interpretation and frankly, to tell anyone they are wrong in what they see in art, be it words, films or songs, is wrong.

    Lebo M. The composer of the sound track is a confirmed christian. Undoubtedly the work was inspired by that.
    "i loved gospel, and it was my first wish to hear the choirs at an african american church," says lebo.
    This is why people take art history classes. So that they know where the artist is coming from. But it doesn't take a art historian to understand that there are christian meanings in this song. And it doesn't take an expert to understand that symbolism is always apparent in art. Just because it had a literal meaning in the movie doesn't mean it didn't have a deeper meaning otherwise. Now I would say something to the fact that christians are being called out for being ignorant. But in truth we all know that the point is being made out of a misplaced anger toward us. Why you would go to the lengths of acting out because we feel some connection to this song as christians. I don't know. But I love this song. The child in me loves it and the christian in me loves that and you can't take that away from me.

    Dude. Mufasa watching over simba. Duh. Also, if one wanted ot get more into detail, and more analytical, one could argue that this entire movie is similar to C. S. Lewis' chronicles of narnia in the same way that it shows the story of redemption through christ (in the christian sense, anyways). Of course, then if one wanted to a literary interpretation, then hamlet is a huge factor in this. But enough of boring you all.

    "To all the Christian fundamentalists which see god everywhere, in anything. This song is not about god, go rent the movie and stop being ignorant. Yes, it speaks about love and care, looking after the loved ones even after we pass away, but lion king is not a Christian story in any way. There is a fine line between being a good Christian like me and being a little overboard. I am sorry if I offended anyone but people that twist anything around to fit their obsessive beliefs need to be debated." Whoever had said that is either a bigot, idiot, foolish brat, or all three. I say this, because even though I am a Christian, I didn't catch the possible symbolism of God in here, though it could just be me being a little bit naive, but I thought that it was about the lost ones and not God. So whoever said it should understand that all people have different opinions and it is not your business to be some kind of commander of people of what they should think or not. So leave them alone. OBOETEOKE! (Remember that!) That is Japanese. :p

    "He lives in you, he lives in me
    He watches over everything we see
    Into the waters, into the truth
    In your reflection, he lives in you"

    This is about how those lost, through death or separation, will always be there with you, especially when you need inspiration and truth in times of need.
