[Verse 1]
I never dreamed
I never hoped
There never was the time

I never dared
I never tried
To yearn for something
That never could be mine

It never will be mine

[Pre-Chorus]
It’s about survival, Sam
Never let down your guard
It’s about persistence, Sam
Keep your eye on the horizon

[Chorus]
Don’t be foolish
That’s what I’d say
Don’t go fooling yourself
You can’t be like everyone else

The impossible happens every day
No matter what you do it won’t go away
Don’t ask for more
But then what are you waiting for

[Verse 2]
I never thought
I never dreamed
I’d meet someone like you

I never dared
You’d look my way
And I’d be a fool
To believe you’d stay

I don’t believe you’ll stay

[Pre-Chorus]
But you persisted, Mark
And I tried to keep you safe from harm
And you survived it, Mark
To fall straight into my arms

[Chorus]
Don’t be foolish
This feeling won’t last
Don’t go fooling yourself
He’s just like everyone else
He’ll soon be in your past

The impossible happens every day
No matter what you do it won’t go away
Don’t ask for more
But then what is he waiting for?

[Bridge]
Why does he stay?
How has he not run away?
With what he knows
How can this be what he chose?

He makes me want to be foolish
He makes me want to believe
But how can I know
That he won’t go
And make a fool out of me?

[Chorus]
The impossible happens every day
I can never make it go away
No matter what I ask for

[Outro]
I’m tired of waiting
I’m tired of hiding
I’m tired of wanting

So while I may never be sure
I’m ready to ask for more
