Old freind, you've been gone too long
Yesterday I sang one of your songs
And it made me remember
Like a bolt out of the blue
First there's life and then there's you
I love you

Deeper and deeper as time hurries by
Steeper and steeper the paths of our lives
Where we are going and where we have been
All of us waiting ot come back again

And when I see you again
We'll speak the words that are spoken by freinds
How are you, well missed you
But not until you're gone away
Will find the words to say
I love you
