	        To Cmaj7 dream C the impossible Cmaj7 dream,
CTo Fsus2 fight F the unbeatable Fsus2 foe. F
To Em bear with unbearable F sorrow,
To Dm run where the brave dare not G7 go.

To Cmaj7 right C the unrightable Cmaj7 wrong, 
CTo Fsus2 love F pure and chaste from Fsus2 afar,
 FTo Em try when you arms are too F weary,
To Dm reach the unreachable Gsus4 star. 

G7This is my C quest, to follow that Am star,
No matter how Em hopeless no matter how F far.
To fight for the Am right without question or A6 pause.
To be willing to C march into hell for a Am heavenly Bb cause. 
And I Dm know if I'll only be Bb true to this glorious E quest,
That my F heart will be peaceful and calm Dm6 when I'm laid to my Em rest.

And the Cmaj7 world C will be better for Cmaj7 this, 
CThat one Fsus2 man F scorned and covered with Fsus2 scars, 
FStill Em strove with his last ounce of F courage,
To C reach Dm the unreachable C star.
