Mushing Down a Dream [Lyrics]

 

Never Forget Your Dreams

It was a beautiful day, the snow beat down

I had my parka on, I was mushing

Trees went by, me and the dogs were singing

Fast trails today, I was flying

 

Yeah, mushing down a dream,

That I always thought would be

The trail is a mystery, going where ever it leads

Mushing down a dream


I feel so good, like anything is possible

Turned the headlamp on and rubbed my eyes

The last 50 miles, the snow was impossible

It was always cold, no sunshine

 

Yeah, mushing down a dream

That I always thought would be

The trail is a mystery, going where ever it leads

Mushing down a dream


I mushed on, the sky drew dark

I barked out the commands to make up time

There’s something good, waiting down this trail

I’m picking up gear, what ever is mine

 

I’m mushing down a dream,

That I always thought would be

The trail is a mystery, going where ever it leads

Mushing down a dream


Yeah, mushing down a dream,

That I always thought would be

The trail is a mystery, going where ever it leads

 

Mushing down a dream


The Tom Petty version of this song; Runnin’ Down a Dream is what inspired me to write some of these crazy lyrics. In fact that song has sort of been my mantra for all of these years trying to do what it took to make the next step to run the Iditarod. That dream is coming closer, and closer to reality.

I just wonder where that trail leads…
