What will I do when you are gone?
Who's gonna tell me the truth?
Who's gonna finish the stories I start,
The way you always do?

When somebody knocks at the door,
Someone new walks in
I will smile and shake their hands,
But you can't make old friends

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was me and you, since way back when
But you can't make old friends

How will I sing when you are gone?
'Cause it won't sound the same
Who'll join in on those harmony parts,
When I call your name?

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
It was you and me, since way back when
You can't make old friends

When Saint Peter opens the gate,
And you come walking in
I'll be there just waiting for you
'Cause you can't make old friends
'Cause you can't make old friends, no no

When I'm out on the stage all alone
And I hear the music begin
We all know the show must go on
But you can't make old friends, no no

You can't make old friends
Can't make old friends
And you and me, will be young again
You can't make old friends

You and me, will be together again
'Cause we both know, we will still be old friends

You can't make old friends
Not the way we have always been
