  1. Old Friends
    Old Friends
    Sat on their park bench like bookends
    A newspaper blown through the grass
    Falls on the round toes
    Of the high shoes
    Of the old friends

    Old Friends
    Winter companions, the old men
    Lost in thier overcoats
    Waiting for the sun
    The sounds of the city sifting through trees
    Settles like dust
    On the shoulders of the old friends

    Can you imagine us years from today
    Sharing a park bench quietly?
    How terribly strange to be seventy...

    Old Friends
    Memory brushes the same years
    Silently sharing the same fear

    Time it was and what a
    Time it was it was
    A time of innocence
    A time of confidences

    Long ago it must be
    I have a photograph
    Preserve your memories
    They're all that's left you

    ~Simon and Garfunkel
