Sail On

Lyrics

Sail on down the line 'bout-a half-a mile or so
And-a don't really wanna know-a where you're goin'
Maybe once or twice, you see, time after time
I tried-a to, to hold on to what we got, but-a now you're goin'

Sail on down the line 'bout-a half-a mile or so
And-a don't really wanna know-a where you're goin'
Maybe once or twice, you see, time after time
I tried-a to, to hold on to what we got, but-a now you're goin'

Great love songs
the best song ever
Love the Easy-Listeni n g quality of Lionel's songs. This one brings back high school memories and a break-up where I was the small town boy. Still the same boy, just a few decades older...

Lionel Richie can make anything sound romantic, even a break up!
