Be the Impossible

from by Mark McAdam



Hey Darlin', I'm gonna see this through
So don't you worry like I can see you do
'Cause I'm telling you
I'm gonna keep my eyes on the road this time
I'm gonna train my eyes on the road
Like it's made of gold
I think it's made of gold

Oh, darlin' don't you look at me sideways
I got a whole bag of tricks up my sleeve
That you've never seen
Like I'm gonna keep my hands on the wheel this time
I'm gonna strap my hands to the wheel
I'll be your man of steel
And this time it's real, yeah

When the wheels come off
When the roads are impassable
When the power lines are washing into the sea
You're gonna turn to me
When sky turns green and the odds are improbable
I'm gonna do the impossible
I'm gonna be the impossible, wait and see

Hey Darlin’, I’m gonna make you proud
So don’t you worry, don’t you think out loud
That’s just not allowed
‘Cause I'm gonna tie myself to the mast this time
Maybe lash myself to the sails
And if all else fails, you can bring your cross and nails
Still, you might want to have a back-up plan in place
Just in case

When the wheels come off
And the roads become impassable
When the moon turns too bloody to see
You're gonna turn to me
When the levees all fail
And survival is improbable
I'm gonna do the impossible
No, I’m be the impossible
Just you wait and see, wait and see
