Lyrics

The Old man and the sailboat
On his way and moving fast
It seems he had to live each moment
As though it'd be his last.
So he chose a life of adventure
Where ever he sets his sail
And when he finds a listening ear
He stops to tell his tales.

Chorus
Move quickly/Speak softly
Touch all that you find
Feel deep the hearts you keep
But leave the rest behind

Talkin' by the curbside
he said "son, it seems to me
love and life are different than
what they're supposed to be
You seem I've found in this life I live
That people aren't all the same
Tho all are worth what you can give
Some aren't worth the pain

Chorus
Move quickly/Speak softly
Touch all that you find
Feel deep the hearts you keep
But leave the rest behind

Bridge
You've only got one shot . . .one world to make it 'round
So carefully choose or loose those anchors to hold you down
Hurry up and take your time . . .take all the good lord gives
'Cause everybody dies someday but not everybody really really lives.

Chorus
Move quickly/Speak softly
Touch all that you find
Feel deep the hearts you keep
But leave the rest behind
