  • I've been standing at the edge of the water
    'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
    I wish I could be the perfect daughter
    But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

    Every turn I take, every trail I track
    Every path I make, every road leads back
    To the place I know, where I can not go
    Though I long to be

    See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
    And no one knows, how far it goes
    If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
    One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go

    Oh oh oh, oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh

    I know, everybody on this island seems so happy on this island
    Everything is by design
    I know, everybody on this island has a role on this island
    So maybe I can roll with mine

    I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
    I'll be satisfied if I play along
    But the voice inside sings a different song
    What is wrong with me?

    See the light as it shines on the sea it's blinding
    But no one knows, how deep it goes
    And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me
    And let me know, what's beyond that line, will I cross that line?

    See the line where the sky meets the sea it calls me
    And no one knows, how far it goes
    If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
    One day I'll know, how far I'll go Writer/s: Lin-Manuel Miranda
