It doesn ’ t matter what you ’ ve heard - Impossible is not a word It ’ s just a reason for someone not to try Everybody ’ s scared to death - When they decide to take that step Out on the water - It ’ ll be alright Life is so much more than what your eyes are seeing You will find your way if you keep believing!
