Sailing on By

( Galleon )

Im taking my chances im eager to fly

Fulfilling my hopes and dreams

And im sailing on by

 

Without hesitation with no consideration

Ill grab opportunities

That are sailing on by

 

And life keeps getting shorter

Im everyday closer to death

Theres no time to think

But its all the more time to act

And im setting my sails

 

Some people seem to live all of their lives

Dreaming of all things to do

While lifes sailing on by

 

They seem to pretend that tomorrow will bring

The gain of their waiting

And theyll be sailing away

 

Their life keeps getting shorter

Theyre everyday closer to death

To wake up one day

Reflecting upon the time they wasted away

Not setting their sails

 

Ive got no possessions, no liabilities

Im free as the bird

While others are sailing on by

 

I once heard the word practice what you preach

Im not exactly sure what it means

But im sailing on by

 

My life keeps getting shorter

Im everyday closer to death

Ill wake up one day

Reflecting upon the fact

I was living a lie.
