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
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
And 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, 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 stars

I'll always dream, the impossible dream
And yes I will reach

The unreachable
Stars
