Carpenters – The Impossible Dream (The Quest) lyrics

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 be better far than you are
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 be willing to give
When there's no more to give
To be willing to die
So that honor and justice may live
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 man scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**)
