Lyrics

OLD FRIENDS

 

(VERSE)

OLD FRIENDS

WE’VE TAKEN TIME

AND STRETCHED IT THIN

AND LEFT OURSELVES BEHIND

FRIENDS OF MIND

TAKE MY HAND

HOLD ME CLOSE

 

(chorus)

WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN SPIRIT

AND I KNOW

THAT WHEREVER I GO

I WILL CARRY YOU WITH ME

LOCKED INTO MY HEART

LOCKED INTO MY SOUL

OOH OOH OOH

 

(VERSE)

OLD FRIENDS

WHERE HAVE YOU GONE

GONE LIKE A SONG

UPON THE WIND

THE SONG OF LIFE

HAS SWEPT US APART

 

(chorus)

BUT OUR LIVES KEEP ON GROWING

KEEP ON FLOWING ENDLESSLY

AND IN THIS WORLD OF ILLUSION

I HAVE COME HERE TO SEE

AND IN YOU I’VE FOUND ME

AND IT SETS MY HEART FREE

OOH OOH OOH

 

(BRIDGE)

LA DA DA   DA DA DA   DA DA DA

LA DA DA  DA DA DA   DA DA DA

 

THEY SAY THAT HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

HEART OF MINE CARRY ME HOME.

 

OOOH   OOOH   OOOH     OOOHOHOOOH

OOOOOOH
