Yes, my class would always start from 7:00 AM and getting there would force me starting almost at 6:00. The traffic wasn’t there at all, cause it was a suburb city of down south of Georgia. Pretty peaceful, I still miss that place. During my ride, Augusta’s WBBQ FM station used to make my days. One day, the song started, it was almost dawn, I had to pull over the car.
True! I didn’t want to miss the essence of whole song because of the natural car noise. [It was a $800 car!] It took my breath away. Its wonderful ballad took me to the point to cry out loud.
My dad chased monsters from the dark
He 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 thirteen years I’d never seen him cry
But the day that grandpa died, I realized
I was talking about the track “The Impossible”, and sounded so great even when I had not slept at all the night before for my class preparation. This one reminds me impossible dreams that I have always dreamt off.
Later I found out that the Academy of Country Music named Joe Nichols its top New Male Vocalist, he garnered three Grammy nominations, and Billboard declared “The Impossible” the tenth most-played song in 2003. It even got tremendous airplay from non-country radio station. The video was superb too. CMT did cover it well.
The song has a deeper meaning. Just because something isn’t easy or has never been accomplished doesn’t mean it’s impossible. The song also signaled that fear and pessimism don’t get you very far in life. It also quoted that you have to take that feared step and dare to risk it all. When it comes to success, faith is paramount. Life has its own way of interpreting things, impossible thing happens.
Unsinkable ships, sink
Unbreakable walls, break
Sometimes the things you think would never happen
Happens just like that
Unbend-able steel, bends
If the fury of the wind is unstoppable
I’ve learned to never underestimate
