IMPOSSIBLE DREAM

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 love pure and chaste from afar
(Alt: 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 fight for the right without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause!
(Alt: To struggle and fight when you've no more to give)
(Alt: 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 stars.
