Joe Nichols – The Impossible lyrics
My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
He could lift me with one arm
Way up over top his head
He could loosen rusty bolts
With a quick turn of his wrench
He pulled splinters from his hand
Never even flinched
In 13 years I never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died
I realized


Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happen just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible


Then there was my junior year
Billy had a brand new car
It was late
The road was wet
I guess the curve was just to sharp
I walked away without a scratch
They brought helicopter in
Billy couldn't feel his legs
Said he'd never walk again
But Billy said he would
And his mom and daddy prayed
And the day we graduated
He stood up to say


Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happen just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible


So don't tell me that it's over
Don't give up on you and me
Cause there no such thing as hopeless
If you believe


Unsinkable ships sink
Unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think could never happen
Happen just like that
Unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible
