Intro: D G A D G A D

Verse I:

       G  A     D           G   A    D  
I have often dreamed, of a far off place
        G A      Bm   Bm/A        G          Asus A
Where a hero’s welcome, would be waiting for me
             G   A/C#  D                G A   Bm  
Where the crowds will cheer, when they see my face
         G   F#     Bm Bm/A        G                 Asus A
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I’m meant to be

Chorus I:

         D/F#      G   D/A            A     A/G
I’ll be there someday, I can go the distance
        D/F#    G   D/A            A   A/G
I will find my way, if I can be strong
       D/F#    G             Bm       Em
I know every mile, will be worth my while
        G  A   D A/C#   Bm   A  G           A     
When I go the distance, I’ll be right where I belong

Verse II:

         G  A/C# D          G   A   D
Down an unknown road, to embrace my fate
             G   A     Bm             G          Asus A
Though that road may wander, it will lead me to you
         G A    D               G   A/C# Bm
And a thousand years, would be worth the wait
           G  F#  Bm               G                   Asus A
It might take a lifetime, but somehow I’ll see it through

Chorus II:
      D/F#         G   D/A            A     A/G   
And I won’t look back, I can go the distance
          D/F#      G         D/A               A A/G
And I’ll stay on track, no, I won’t accept defeat
        D/F#      G         Bm          Em
It’s an uphill slope, but I won’t lose hope
        G  A   D A/C#   Bm   A  G      A          
Till I go the distance, and my journey is complete

Interlude: D A/D G/D (x2)

        F                Bb/D        C/E     A/C#
But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
       D             D/F# G             F#/A#
For a hero’s strength is measured by his heart

Instrumental: E/G# F#/A# B (x2) G/B A/C# D 
              Bm Gm/Bb D/A Asus A A/G

Chorus III:

         D/F#       G D/A             A     A/G        
Like a shooting star, I will go the distance
        D/F#           G D/A               A   A/G 
I will search the world, I will face its’ harms
        D/F#       E/G# F#/A#          Bm     Bm/A
I don’t care how far,   I can go the distance
         G  A  D A/C# Bm   A   G       A 
Till I find my hero’s welcome, waiting in your arms

I will search the world, I will face it’s harms

Till I find my hero’s welcome, waiting in your arms

perfect chords. But I'm confused about how to play the last line of the chorus. The, "When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong," part, there are a lot of chords that need to be played and it's kind of hard to switch into all those chords.

Thank you bro!
G A D A/C# Bm A G A
When I go the dis-tance, I’ll be right where I belong, you could ommit the A, D (in "the dis-") and the Bm A (i'll be)..yeah i know it's hard to pull of, but repetitive practice will do it my friend =)
