"Great Spirits" is a song from Brother Bear. It is played as Kenai and his brothers, Sitka and Denahi, travel through the Canadian wilderness.

Lyrics

Tina Turner:
When the earth was young
And the air was sweet
And the mountains kissed the sky

In the great beyond
With its many paths
Man and nature lived side by side

In this wilderness
Of danger and beauty
Lived three brothers
Bonded by love

Their hearts full of joy
They ask now for guidance
Reaching out to the skies up above

Chorus:
Great Spirits of all who lived before
Take our hands and lead us
Fill our hearts and souls with all you know
Show us that in your eyes we are all the same
Brothers to each other
In this world we remain
Truly brothers all the same

Tina Turner:
Give us wisdom to pass to each other
Give us strength so we understand
That the things we do
The choices we make
Give direction to all life's plans

To look in wonder at all we've been given
In a world that's not always as it seems
Every corner we turn
Only leads to another
A journey ends, but another begins

Repeat Chorus

Brothers all the same!
