The Impossible
by Joe Nichols (Kelley Lovelace, Lee Thomas Miller)

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
He pulled splinters from his hand
And never even flinched
In thirteen years I 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
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


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
