Elvis sang It’s Impossible in concert on several occasions in the 1970s.

 

Lyrics:

It's impossible to tell the sun to leave the sky,

It's just impossible.
It's impossible to ask a baby not to cry,
It's just impossible.
Can I hold you closer to me
And not feel you going through me,
But the second that I never think of you?
Oh, how impossible.

1. Can the ocean keep from rushing to the shore?
It's just impossible.
If I had you could I ever ask for more?
It's just impossible.
And tomorrow, should you ask me for the world
Somehow I'd get it, I would sell my very soul
And not regret it for to live without your love
Is just impossible

1. (repeat)
Oh impossible,
Impossible.
Impossible
