"Impossible" as written by and Adam Olenius....
I don't wanna feel like I don't have a future
I don't wanna feel like it's an end of a summer
Let's not fall back to sleep like we used to
I don't wanna wake up knowing I don't have a future

(Impossible, impossible)
Impossible, your love is something I cannot remember

I don't wanna spend another day in this city
I woke up thirsty, it's hard to go back, you know
Let's not fall back to sleep like we used to, do you remember?
I don't wanna wake up knowing I don't have a future
And I know it's

(Impossible, impossible)
Impossible, your love is something I cannot remember
And there's a first time and a second time, you gotta hold on
Did you know it could happen to you?
Your love is something I cannot remember

I don't wanna see the same pictures all over
And I've been standing on the same spot now since it's been over
'Cause someone promised me a new chance, yes, you promised
I don't wanna wake up knowing I don't have a future
And I know it's

(Impossible, impossible)
Impossible, your love is something I cannot remember
Now there's a first time and a second time, you gotta hold on
Did you know it could happen to you?
Your love is something I cannot remember
Your love is impossible

Impossible, impossible
Impossible, impossible
Impossible, impossible
Impossible, impossible

You are just like your mother, I'm just as same as the others
Do you believe everything they write in all those magazines?
Stay out of love until you're ready, stay out of it 'cause it scares you
You'll still find your love outside the public library

I know it could happen to you
I know it could happen to you
I know it could happen to you
I know, did you? It could happen to you

I know it could happen to you
I know it could happen to you
And I know it's

(Impossible, impossible)
Impossible, your love is something I cannot remember
Now there's a first time and a second time, you gotta hold on
Did you know it could happen to you?
Your love is something I cannot remember
Your love is impossible

(Impossible, impossible)
It's impossible
(Impossible, impossible)

There's a first time and a second time, you gotta hold on
First time and second time
There's a first time and second time
(Impossible, impossible)
Impossible

    General CommentThis song might be the most beautiful song I've ever heard in the entirety of my life. It's definitely the best song of 2007 so far. I'm not sure exactly what it's about yet but maybe something about, for some reason or another, these two lovers can't be together. It's "Impossible." There's also some acknowledgment of commitment as something that "scares you." These lovers can't be together because they're afraid to commit, for whatever reasons (abandonment? past relationships?) I don't know yet, what do you guys think?

    This is such a moving song.

    General CommentThe impression I got from this song is a little different from most.

    I makes me think of a guy who got a girl pregnant and now is denying ever loving/making love to her.( your love is something I cannot remember)

    You find your love outside the public library could be an insult to call her like, she just sleeps with random people

    "I don't want to feel like I dont have a future."
    Self explainitory
    having a child could ruin his life, thus he has no future.

    "Did you know it could happen to you?"
    I think is a warning to the listener, all this could happen to you.

    General CommentFor me it seems like a broke-up, because one of the persons wasn't able to commit a relationship (kind of phobic "Stay out of love until you're ready, stay out of it 'cause it scares you"). The lyrical "I" and that person had a relationship, but latter simply wasn't able to show his/her love and always ran away , maybe even cheated on her/him."I don't want to feel like I don't have a future" The lyrical "I" apparently loves him/her , but at the same time he/she knows that it is useless being together as the other one simply is not able. But the lyrical I seems to be in a double bind as it doesn't "want to feel like it is an end of a summer", but it knows that the realationship will not make her/ him happy. It sounds as if they have just separated and that they are still close to each other and maybe it is even not the first time that they have separated .But " Let's not fall back to sleep like we used to" shows that they denied the truth while being together and that they should not come together anymore like "Let's not make the same mistake again". The second stanza explains the same for me. The city reminds the lyrical I of him/her and it is "thirsty", thirsty after love which he/ she never got from that person. Anyway, it is hurt by his/her behaviour and cannot "go back". So "it is impossible"... "your love is something i cannot remember" because this love was never there! How to remember something that it never felt??? Maybe the unable person is once ready for love but" there's a first time and a second time" it has got to hold on, but in a way the person still seems to be attached to the lyrical " I"and vise versa. It has a new chance ( a new love) now, a chance the unable person always promised, but actually he/ she never changed. the person might have problems with the new situation (seeing that his "love" is in a new relationship the person never was capable to) . In a manner he/she loved the lyrical I , but he/ she was not capable to bear the closeness. So the lyrical "I" wants him/her to "stay out of love until it is ready" and then "It will still find his love outside the public library" . "your love " is the lyrical "I" itself as the "still" indicates and when he/she is ready it can happen to him/her...happen to love the lyrical I that before felt like "the others". So for me the song is about a love that seems to be impossible ,because one of the persons is unable to commit a relationship and the impossible makes life for both difficult . Nevertheless there is some hope left in the end that the person changes and that they can be together again.

    General CommentIncredibly beautiful. My interpretation is that he is having a hard time moving on after a break-up, probably from a relationshit neither of them were ready for. He doesn't want to feel like it was his last chance for true love, like he lost 'the one'. He wants to be able to move on.

    I feel that makes sense and that's a meaning I can relate a lot to.

    General CommentI think it's about someone who has been through some shit for too long.. both relationship wise and otherwise and FINALLY finds someone who they have this unbelievable bond with.. And everything was going wonderfully and natural.. And then the other person has problems commiting and so person #1 is like "Hey! What we have/had is really good! Why deny it? Stop being a pussy! I don't want to go back to the shit my life was before you.. lets not ignore what we obviously have."

    Can you tell i can, uhh.. relate to person #1 right now? haha Great song.
