Back to The Impossible lyrics

The Impossible

My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
He could lift me with one arm way up over top his head
He could loosen rusty bolts with a quick turn of his wrench

He pulled splinters from his hand
And never even flinched
In thirteen years I'd never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died, I realized

Unsinkable ships sink, unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
Happen just like that unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible

Then there was my junior year, Billy had a brand new car
It was late, the road was wet
I guess the curve was just too sharp
I walked away without a scratch they brought the helicopter in

Billy couldn't feel his legs, said he'd never walk again
But Billy said he would
And his mom and daddy prayed
And the day we graduated, he stood up to say

"Unsinkable ships sink, unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
Happen just like that, unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible"

So don't tell me that it's over, don't give up on you and me
'Cos there's no such thing as hopeless if you believe

Unsinkable ships sink, unbreakable walls break
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
Happen just like that, unbendable steel bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I've learned to never underestimate the impossible
