  • Old friend, don't give up on me
    Old hearts don't die easy
    Old friend, don't give up on me
    Old hearts don't die easy

    I was walking with the postman, asking about the rounds
    He said "This life is so simple."
    "Don't need no medication, or much theology, just lose your reservations, and your apologies."

    Old friend, you know I need you now
    It's so hard to live that way
    Old friend, have I been less than true
    Forgive me my shortcomings

    All the paper and all the lonesome times
    All the winters that we've been through
    It's a wonder that we're still alive
    It's a wonder that we're kicking

    Old friend, don't give up on me
    Old hearts don't die easy
    Old friend, don't give up on me
    Old hearts don't die easy
