How Far I’ll Go was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jordan Fisher. The song has a great success like “Let I Got” from “Frozen” featuring Idina Menzel. The version by Auli’i Cravalho has reached the peak position at number 52 on US Top 100 Chart for now.

Cravalho has received two nominations for Outstanding Achievement, Voice Acting in an Animated Feature Production for  the Annie Awards and Best Voice Performance at the Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association.

Moana, the 56th Disney animated feature film, has a box-office of more than 180 million worldwide. It is not only an adventure movie but also great musical (read a film review of Moana).

I’ve been staring 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 cannot go
Where 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

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
