I'd seen him there a hundred times everybody called him pop He'd sit there on that barstool and never say a lot But he had an eye for the ladies we'd tease him and he'd go with the flow I said there ain't no fool like an old fool He said there's something that you ought to know
Old hearts still fall just as hard old dreams still go just as far And it's true that time diminishes what your chances are But there's still a lot of love left in old hearts
He said you don't know nabout being old but I know about being young I haven't forgot the words to use they're still on the tip of my tongue And romance ain't some passing phase that only the young go through Now if you think that I'm just wasting time I've got news for you
Old hearts still fall just as hard...
Then one night it happened I knew when she walked in His eyes lit up and he tipped his hat as she looked at him and grinned Now every time you see them out they're always holding hands Side by side arm and arm I guess it's in God's plans
Old hearts still fall just as hard.... There's sure a lot of love left in old hearts
