If We Can't Be The Same Old Sweethearts lyrics

( well just be the same old friends )

If we cant be the same old sweethearts,
Then well just be the same old friends!

For I want someone like you
Just to tell my troubles to,
My happiness, on you,
It all depends!

For Ive known you too long to forget you
And my old dream of love never ends!
Though I know you cant be mine,
We will meet from time to time
And well just be the same old friends!

< instrumental verse >

For Ive known you too long to forget you
And my old dream of love never ends!
Though I know you cant be mine,
We will meet from time to time
And well just be the same old friends!
