The Impossible Dream

The Impossible Dream

By Mitch Leigh and Lyrics by Joe Darion

To dream the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe

To bear with unbearable sorrow

To run where the brave dare not go

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 lie peaceful and calm

When I’m laid to my rest, and the world will be

Better for this that one woman still strove with her

Last ounce of courage

To reach the unreachable star
