To dream the impossible dream 
To fight the unbeatable foe 
To bear with unbearable sorrow 
And to run where 
The brave dare not go 
To right the unrightable wrong 
And 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
March into hell 
For that 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
The unreachable
The unreachable star 
And I'll always dream 
The impossible dream 
Yes, and I'll reach 
The unreachable star
