To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear the unbreakable sorrow,
To run where the unreachable star.

To right the unrightable wrong,
And to love pure and chaste from afar,
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,
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 man scorned and covered with
Scars
Still strove with his last ounce of
Courage
To reach the unreachable,
The unreachable, the unreachable
Star
And I'll always dream,
The impossible dream...
Yes and I'll reach
The unreachable star...
The unreachable star...

    To give one's all in spite of overwhelming odd and public derision, to reach for the goal that everyone says is impossible and/or ridiculous. To stand for something instead of falling for anything. To stand for the right when all around champion the wrong.

    Its a song about fighting against impossible odds. Even if you know you won't win, the important thing is that you tried. The singer is saying that he will be able to rest easy when he dies if he knows he lived his life always doing this.
