​Impossible World

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Exit Strategy of the Soul (2008).

Lord, if you will lend me your ear
It seems like this old world's beyond repair
But tell me, does it have to be?

Can we summon the will come up with the faith?
There are those who say we haven't got a prayer
Nor have we the strength to bear
This impossible world

Death, if you will give me your hand
For there are some things I'll never understand
Could someone explain to me
How many lives, how many tears must fall?
Before we learn we're going nowhere
Not unless we learn to share
This impossible world

Is that a tear in the eye of the storm?
A hint of fear in the relative calm?
It appears all attempts to feel so safe and warm
Are all in vain

When I was a child I opened my eyes
And beheld a world of possibility
Though now all there seems to be
Is an impossible world

Still there's a song that I sing in my heart
There's a light that I see in the dark
And a voice that has softly whispered to my soul
Do not be afraid

Lord, if you will lend me your ear
It seems like this old world's beyond repair
Oh, tell me, does it have to be
Such an impossible world?
