1. To dream the impossible dream,

         C                             Em

    to fight the unbeatable foe,

         Bm                              C

    to bear with unbearable sorrow,

        Am                                           D

    to run where the brave dare not go.

 

          G                               Bm

2. To right the unrightable wrong,

        C                                         Em

    to love pure and chaste from afar,

        Bm                                          C

    to try when your arms are too weary,

         Am                                 D

    to reach the unreachable star.

 

                         G                          Em

    This is my quest, to follow that star,

    no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.

                            Em                                     D#

    To fight for the right, without question or pause,

                              G                 - Em                          F

    to be willing to pass into hell         for a heavenly cause.

3. And the world will be better for this,

                     C                                               Em

    that one man scorned and covered with scars,

             Bm                                       C

    still strove with his last ounce of courage,

         Am                                 D

    to reach the unreachable star.  - - -
