The Impossible Dream

The Impossible Dream
Man of La Mancha
music by Mitch Leigh
lyrics by Joe Darion

_______________

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 …
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 …

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 …

Don Quixote Pablo Picasso

Dedicated to all those who strive
with their last ounce of courage,
to reach that unreachable star…
