"The Impossible" as written by Marie Wilson, Mark Hudson and Jim Vallance....
My dad chased monsters from the dark
He checked underneath my bed
And 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
And 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'll 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, they 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
'Cause 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

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs, it has a lot of meaning to me, it's true, you CANT underestimate the impossible. I told this to my friend Celeste because I had a vision of me and her getting married and at first I thought it'd be impossible... then I said to never underestimate the impossible and the next day found this song. So Celeste, I dedicate this to you. I hope we'll always be friends :-)

    General CommentThis kinda reminds me of a lyric from Breaking Benjamin's tune, So Cold.

    "Wise men wonder while strong men die."
    Seriously...
    But this is a great song. I just found it not too long ago. It's great overall.
