Old Faces

Old faces never stay around forever
And people move away but just as many stay,
And old faces fade when new friends are made
And new friends found soon leave without a sound.

Old faces belong to all the old places
And constantly race to leave without a trace,
And memories die in the blink of an eye
And each fleeting day heartache goes away.

Forever a best friend you might lose in the end
And you didn't please the one who vanished in the breeze,
And conveniently forgot the kiss you never got
And certainly regret the one you never met.

Old faces never stay forever
And they always seem to be in a dream,
And you'll never know when they'll come or go
And forever
And a day,
Old faces never stay
