Seasons changed and you went away, but I still remembered you
Months did pass and you saw me less, but I still remembered you
 
Old friend, I didn’t know
Old friend, I didn’t know I’d fall in love with you so fast,
and four years passed,
and I couldn’t forget that smile
That one night in the warm yellow light you looked at me for a while
 
Old friend, I didn’t know
Old friend, I didn’t know
Old friend, I miss you so
Old friend, I miss you
 
Winter beach, I wet my feet while you told me about your life
And as it snowed and we got so cold, I wanted you to know
 
Old friend, I fell for you
Old friend, I still love you
Old friend, I miss you so
Old friend, I miss you
