I met an old man on a Greyhound
On my way down to New Orleans
He started talkin’ in the backseat
He pulled out a flask and passed it to me

He said, “Someday you’ll be my age
And start lookin’ back on where you’ve been
You’ll get a little sad and just a little mad
When it hits you, you can’t do it all again”

So order up the good wine
Soak up the sunshine
And don’t forget to take time
To try to love someone

‘Cause life’s just a crazy ride on a runaway train
And you can’t go back for what you missed
So make it good, make it last ‘cause it all files by so fast
And you only get one trip

I got off in Jackson and I started thinkin’
Starin’ out the window at the rain
And I been livin’ like a man sleep walkin’
There’s a lot of things that I'm gonna change

I'm gonna order up the good wine
Start soakin’ up the good times
Won’t let another day go by
Without lovin’ someone

‘Cause life’s just a crazy ride on a runaway train
And you can’t go back for what you missed
So make it good, make it last ‘cause it all files by so fast
You only get one trip

Life's just a crazy ride on a run away train
You can't go back for what you've missed
So make it count, hold on tight find a way to make it right
You only get one trip
So make it good, make it last ‘cause it all flies by so fast
You only get one trip
