"Somos viejos amigos."
Translation:We are old friends.
My guess is that when it's before it is like saying "my old friends, my friends I've had for a while" type of meaning. And then when it's after, it means "old" in age.
that might help
Viejos... Really? When I was in tenerife I was told that "viejo" is a negative word for old and that they would rather use another word for "old" except for a few cases
I actually saw an answer that explained this on another question.
According to Iago: "Somos amigos viejos" would mean we are friends who are old, while "Somos viejos amigos" means we have been friends for a while.
Great explanation!! Thanks for the prompt answer :) it makes perfect sense now.
