"New Old Friends" as written by and Margaret Lewis....
She’s sorry that she missed the party
She guesses that she didn’t see the point
Stay out and get drunk and wake up in a funk
She could meet someone if she tried
But new old friends take time

She knows you want to help her for sure
And she knows she’s not trying your cures
She could choke ’em on down but lets be serious now
She could meet someone if she tried
But new old friends take time

It really hits her when the goodbyes happen
This life of loss, fights and funerals too
The new people we meet and the new babies
Just don’t affect us the way those things do

She says maybe it’s just that humans aren’t
Equipped to feel improvements
But maybe its just things happen fast and new old friends take time.

She’s sorry that she missed the feast
And didn’t hit your record release
She says they’re all beasts and the forest repeats
But she could meet someone if she tried
But new old friends take time

She says she’s not stingy with the water
She says she’s not stingy with the seeds
She says she watches ‘em grow and then she watches ‘em go
She could meet someone if she tried
But new old friends take time

It really hits her when the goodbyes happen
This life of loss, fights and funerals too
The new people we meet and the new babies
Just don’t affect us the way those things do

She says maybe it’s just that humans aren’t
Equipped to feel improvements
But maybe its just things happen fast and new old friends take time.
