Soundtrack: Moana

Song Lyrics

How Far I'll Go Song Lyrics

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 light where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
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 could 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 light 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

"How Far I'll Go," performed by Auli'i Cravalho in the film "Moana," is a sng about self-discovery, longing for something beyond the familiar, and the inner conflict that arises from challenging established norms.

The song begins with Moana describing her fascination with the ocean, a symmbol of the unknown and a path to discovery. Despite her efforts to be the "perfect daughter" and adhere to her community's expectations, she's continuously drawn to the sea, indicating a deep inner conflict between her duties and desires.

The chorus, "See the light where the sky meets the sea, It calls me," captures Moana's longing to explore and understand her deep connection to the ocean. The sea represents the unknown, the unexplored, and a part of her identity that she has yet to understand fully. The recurring line, "No one knows how far it goes," emphasizes the vastness of the journey she contemplates and the uncertainty that comes with it.

Moana reflects on the structured life on her island, where everyone has a designated role, including herself. While she recognizes she could fulfill these expectations, a voice inside her yearns for something different, highlighting the struggle between conforming to societal roles and pursuing personal aspirations.

The lyrics, "See the light as it shines on the sea, It's blinding," suggest that while the call to explore is compelling, it is also daunting and overwhelming. Moana is aware of the risks and uncertainties involved in crossing the metaphorical line between her known world and the vast, uncharted waters.

In summary, "How Far I'll Go" is a poignant portrayal of a young individual's journey to understand herself and her place in the world. It speaks to the universal theme of exploring beyond one's comfort zone to discover one's true potential and purpose.

Just right after watching this clip from the original motion picture containing this song, we desperately wanted to get onto the island with the perfect azure water, even despite the presence of absolutely outstanding voice at the first place of a girl named Auli'i Cravalho, who casts here as the female hero.
This is a song about being different again, as you may have noticed – almost every single new movie from the Hollywood is about being different from the people & thus, make the improbable deeds that never would come to mind of an ordinary person.
Still, the water in the ocean is magnificent :)
