Have you ever had one of those days when you wished you had stayed in bed? Well, when things look bleak, it’s time to sing. Here’s a song that will cheer you up and give you courage to face the day.
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.
“The Impossible Dream (The Quest)” from Man of LaMancha (Broadway version)
composed by Mitch Leigh, lyrics by Joe Darion.
