I have often dreamed, of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome, would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way, if I can be strong
I know ev'ry mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road, to embrace my fate
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
And a thousand years, would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back, I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track, no, I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope, but I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance, and my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
I will search the world, I will face it's harms
I don't care how far, i can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face it's harms
Till I find my hero's welcome, waiting in your arms

    Go the distance would mean reaching your goals in life no matter how hard it is. You are still determine to reach what you are aiming for. There may be obstacles but as long as you believe that you can and by also believing to our almighty father jesus christ. Nothing is impossible!! :))

    It's a rough life sometimes... My faith, my hope is that my hero, my god, is leading me down the unknown road, and it will be worth the while... And then i will be right where i belong, in my hero's arms.

    Go the distance everywhere there is way that you can go the distance. You can be everywhere and everything if you follow the distance!!! You can go far away if you do not care that distance is always far. You can also go the distance if you believe you can go how matter far the distance is. That remindes me we won a dance using this song i will never forget that moment and the too. And he will survive the distance, he will stay to fight, even it's far far away... And he will sacrifice himself the challenge of the distance... Peace and love.
