Where Do I Go From Here

I don't care much for the sequel, but I adore this song, which was featured in it. It's the more melancholy twin of Just Around the Riverbend, where Pocahontas reflects on her experience and is once again unsure about her path in life, as she feels that there is (yet again) something bigger out there waiting for her. It's also through this song that Pocahontas finally lets her memory of John Smith to rest, believing him to be dead. The lyrics are just lovely.

The earth is cold, the fields are bare
The branches fold against the wind that's everywhere
The birds move on so they survive
When snow's so deep the bears all sleep to keep themselves alive

They do what they must for now and trust in their plan
If I trust in mine, somehow will I find who I am

And where do I go from here?
So many voices ringing in my ear
Which is the voice that I was meant to hear
How will I know where do I go from here

My world has changed and so have I
I've learned to choose and even learned to say goodbye
The path ahead so hard to see
It winds and bends but where it ends depends on only me

In my heart I don't feel part of so much I've known
Now it seems it's time to start a new life on my own

But where do I go from here?
So many voices ringing in my ear
Which is the voice that I was meant to hear
How will I know where do I go from here
