New Patches    (1984)

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 another's feet

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 to
I still love someone I've known a long, long time

I have built my world around a mem'ry
And she's the only one that I let in
Every time I've tried to love somebody
In my mind I'm loving her again

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 to
I still love someone I've known a long, long time

Yes, I still love someone I've known a long, long time
