The Impossible Dream


Lyrics by Joe Darion Music by Mitch Leigh

To dream the impossible dream,

to fight the unbeatable foe,

to bear with unbearable sorrow,

to run where the brave dare not go.

To right the unrightable wrong,

to love pure and chaste from afar,

to try when your arms are too weary,

to reach the unreachable star.

This is my quest,

to follow that star–

no matter how hopeless,

no matter how far.

To fight for the right without question or pause,

to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause.

And I know if I’ll only be true to this

glorious quest

that my heart will be peaceful and calm

when I’m laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,

that one man scorned and covered with scars

still strove with his last ounce of courage.

To reach the unreachable stars.
