W.I.T.C.H. Wiki

We Are W.I.T.C.H. ("We Are W.I.T.C.H" on streaming services) is the sixteenth and final track of the album Music From and Inspired By W.I.T.C.H., and the American theme song for the TV series.

It was written by Adam Watts and Andy Dodd. The full version of the song was performed by Marion Ravn, and is 2 minutes and 53 seconds in duration (2:53).

A promotional CD single distributed with the comics contains a shorter version of the song featuring a different singer, which was also used for the first half of season 1. This release was performed by Chelsea Somma, and is 1 minute and 32 seconds in duration (1:32).

This song only appears as the theme in the United States. Most releases of the TV series internationally, both in English and dubbed, use the original theme song for the TV series, W.I.T.C.H. Theme Song.

Other versions

TV series

A demo release of the song with different vocals by Chelsea Somma is used before episode 14. It is then replaced with a version sung by Marion Ravn for the rest of the series. Both TV series versions are only one minute long, and thus shorter than the respective CD releases.

Unlike the original openings, of which there is one for each season, the American opening remains the same throughout the entire series, as the American broadcaster "wanted consistency in case they aired both seasons simultaneously".[1] The theme song likewise remains unchanged between seasons (unlike the original theme, which was remixed).

While almost all versions of the song are in English, broadcasts of the series in the United States featured a Spanish translation of the song along with the Spanish-dubbed SAP audio.

CD single

W.I.T.C.H. Cartoon: The Original Theme from the U.S.A. is a promotional CD single exclusively distributed with comic issue 54, originally released in 2005 in Italy.[2] It also saw distribution in other countries, such as the Philippines.[3][4]

  1. "We Are W.I.T.C.H." (01:32)

Lyrics

The following lyrics are transcribed verbatim from the CD liner notes. Any oddities such as typographical errors and audio discrepancies are presented exactly as they appear there.


We are, we are
We are W.I.T.C.H.
We are, we are...

There is a place
Where darkness reigns
We've got the power to fight back

We save the day
United five as one

We can become
More than you know

The heart will lead the way to
What we can control

Water, Fire, Earth, and Air
Guardians Unite!!

We are, we are
We are W.I.T.C.H.
We are, we are...
(2x)

We fight for life
We fight for truth
This is our revolution

In day or night
We have the strength and courage

With open eyes
We find the light

Together we will have
The power to control

Water, Fire, Earth, and Air
Guardians Unite!!

We are, we are
We are W.I.T.C.H.
We are, we are...
(2x)

Our world is more than we see
There's danger that lies beneath
We fight to protect the free
(Water, Fire, Earth, and Air)
To protect the free...
(Water, Fire, Earth, and Air)
Guardians Unite!!

We are, we are
We are W.I.T.C.H.
We are, we are...
(4x)
