Now and then an old friend tries to help me
By telling me there's someone I should meet
But I don't have the heart to start all over
'Cause my heart is laying at anothers feet.

And you just don't put new patches on old garments
I don't want no one else on my mind
I just don't need nobody new to cling too
I still love someone I've know a long, long time.

--- Instrumental ---

I have built my world around a memory
And she's the only one that I let in
And everytime I try to love somebody
In my mind I'm loving her again.

No, you just don't put new patches on old garments
I don't want no one else on my mind
I just don't need nobody new to cling too
I still love someone I've know a long, long time.

I still love someone I've know a long, long time...
