365 Day Blog challenge Day 10 – The Impossible Dream #365daychallenge

I’ve run around so much today with work & some early Xmas shopping I’ve not planned a blog so I thought I’d share the lyrics of one of my favourite songs. There are many, many versions of this. I have two favourites; the first is Elvis at his Las Vegas best. The other is the first time I ever heard the song. It was my 19th birthday  and I’d gone to see an Indie band Carter: Unstoppable Sex Machine and they played it as an encore. For some reason there was an outbreak of hugging among the crowd. It just felt like one of those perfect moments and it’s a memory I treasure.

I hope you love the words as much as I do

“The Impossible Dream”

originally from MAN OF LA MANCHA (1972)

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not goTo 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
