Jack Jones – The Impossible Dream lyrics
The Impossible Dream (The Quest)
Jack Jones
Words and Music by Joe Darion and Mitch Leigh
From the Broadway musical "Man Of La Mancha"

(peak Billboard Adult Contemporary position # 35 in 1966)

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.
