The Impossible Dream
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where the brave dare not go

And to right the unrightable wrong
And 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
Ooh, no matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march, march into hell
For that heavenly cause

And I know
If I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
Oh, that one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable, the unreachable,
The unreachable, come on

Yeah, and I'll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I'll reach
The unreachable star
