Disney – I Can Go The Distance lyrics

I have often dreamed
Of a far off place
Where a great, warm welcoming
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 will fiind my way
I can go the distance
I'll be there someday
If I can be strong
I know every mile
Will be worth my while
I will go almost anywhere
To feel like 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 its 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 its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms

I Can Go The Distance meanings

  • u
    In Jules Verne’s ‘Around The World In Eighty Days’ the theme is adventure and travel. Where the main character Mr. Fogg does not give up on reaching his journey to go around the world in less than 80 days. Not afraid to go the distance he succeeds on reaching his goal. Showing the people of England and his Reform club members that it is possible. Which leads to my musical song choice. ‘Go The Distance’ by Lucas Grabel. I chose this song because it expresses the theme of adventure by reflecting what it means to be an adventurer, determined to complete a far away journey that is not easy for any man. The musical expresses the calmness of the protagonist facing with difficult challenge manages to stay focused.
