The Hesitations – The Impossible Dream lyrics
We dream the impossible dream
We fight the unbeatable foe
We bear with unbearable sorrow
We run where the brave dare not go and...

We right the unrightable wrong
We love pure and chaste from afar
We try when our arms are too weary
We reach the unreachable star

This is our quest
(Wherever I may go)
To follow that star
(I've got to find that star, Lord knows)
No matter how hopeless
(I've got to be a man)
No matter how far
(No matter where I am, oh oh oh)
We right for the right
(Anything in the world)
With no question of cost
(I don't care what it may be)
To be willing to march (march), march (march)
(March into hell for that heavenly cause)
And we know if we'll be true
To this glorious quest
Then our hearts will lie peaceful and calm
When we're laid to our rest

And the world will be better for this
That these men, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with their last ounce of courage
To reach (reach up, reach up, reach up)
We're gonna reach (reach up, reach up, reach up)
Glorious... (reach up, reach up, reach up)
Can I reach that star (reach up, reach up, reach up)
Somewhere, somehow I've got to reach that star...
(Reach up, reach up, reach up)
(Fade out)
