Trees flew by, me and Del were singin' “Little Runaway”
I was

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a , goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream.

I felt so good, like anything was possible.
I hit and my
The last three days the rain was unstoppable.
It was always cold, no sunshine.

Yeah runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin' on a , goin' wherever it leads
Runnin' down a dream.

I rolled on as the sky dark.
I put the down to make some time.
There's something good waitin' down this
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine.

I’m runnin' down a dream
That never would come to me.
Workin' on a , goin' wherever it leads,
Runnin' down a dream.

Yeah, I’m runnin' down a dream

The Polar Express - With Tom Hanks













 

Tom Hanks plays most of the characters in this splendid animated feature. A boy who doubts the reality of Santa Claus sees a passenger train out his window at night just after he goes to bed. The train is The Polar Express. It's going to the North Pole and picking up kids on its way. The trip through the cold country is full of adventure. Also, the city at the North Pole where Santa and his elves live and work is equally scary and fun. We're going to watch this feature on our final two days of Fall Semester. If you can't be here because you are very busy or because you live in another country, you'll find it at your local video store or cable TV network. It's a very well conceived and designed animation film.
