  • I have often dreamed of a far off place
    Where a hero's welcome would be waiting for me
    Where the crowds would 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 every mile would 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 loose hope, 'till I go the distance
    And my journey is complete, oh yeah

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

    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 Writer/s: Alan Menken, David Zippel
