The Impossible (Unsinkable Ship) by Joe Nichols
My dad chased monsters from the dark,
Checked underneath my bed.
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,
Never even flinched.
In 13 years I'd never seen him cry,
But the day that Grandpa died,
Unsinkable ships (that sink)
Unbreakable walls (that break)
Sometimes the things you think will never happen, happen just like that
Unbendable steel (that bends),
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable,
I've learned to never under estimate, 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 with out 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
