Alaska!

(with apologies to Toto and “Africa”)

I hear wolf dogs howling in the night
But he hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
We’re coming in, ice covered sight
The sled runners reflect the stars that guide me toward salvation
I stopped a musher along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten track or ancient inspiration
She turned to me as if to say “Hurry, boy, team’s waiting there for you.”

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a whole team or more could ever do
I bless the snows up in Alaska
Gonna take some time to race the dogs we never knew

The sled dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some pack-dog company
I know that I must do what’s right
As sure as Denali towers o’er the landscape driving up Highway Three.
I yearn to pull so deep inside, howling at this thing that I’ve become

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a team or more could ever do
I bless the snows up in Alaska
Gonna take some time to race the teams we never knew

Hurry boy, sled’s waiting there for you.

It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a whole team or more could ever do
I bless the snow up in Alaska
I bless the snow up in Alaska
(I bless the snow)
I bless the snow up in Alaska
(I bless the snow)
I bless the snow up in Alaska
I bless the snow up in Alaska
(Ah, gonna take the time)
Gonna take the time to run the teams we never had
