Chasing That Dream

Time has a way of pushing you around,
as your journey moves you down some new road,
as distractions and detours, your plans
lose focus and your progress is slowed.
Still, when it’s hard to stand, on the moving rocks and sand
of the once river that is now just a stream,
hey, but you've gotten this far, and look, there you are,
believing and chasing that dream.

There are people, in their disappointment,
that would parade you past their own empty cup;
telling of how hard or impossible the task
and advise that you might as well give up.
But don't get caught up in the heat of their burned out defeat;
have your own engine stoked full of steam,
and keep your fire burning strong believing all along,
you have purpose in chasing that dream.

And never give up, no, never, never give up
on that vision of what you have planned.
And never give up, no,... never, ever give up
till you’re holding that prize in your hand.

Years ago it seemed it would be easy
to balance out and play all the roles,
but now, as priorities call you away
you move further away from your goals.
There's times I know, it's much easier to let go
of that one small flickering gleam,
but hold onto that star and no matter where you are,
keep believing and keep chasing that dream.
