The Impossible Dream
(My Quest)
Mitch Leigh - Joe Darion
From the Broadway musical
"Man Of La Mancha"
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 fight the unbeatable foe,
To reach the unreachable star...
