Dan Fogelberg Souvenirs Lyrics

Last updated: 01/05/2014 03:27:21 PM

Here is a poem
That my lady sent down
Some morning while
I was away.
Wrote on the back of
A leaf that she found
Somewhere around Monterey.

And here is the key
To a house far away
Where I used to live
As a child.
They tore down the building
When I moved away
And left the key unreconciled.

And down in the canyon
The smoke starts to rise.
It rides on the wind
Till it reaches your eyes.
When faced with the past
The strongest man cries...cries.

And down in the canyon
The smoke starts to rise.
It rides on the wind
Till it reaches your eyes.
When faced with the past
The strongest man cries...cries.

And here is a sunrise
To set on your sill.
The ghosts of the dawn
Moving near.
They pass through your sorrow
And leave you quite still...
Sitting among souvenirs.

One of Dan's Best | Reviewer: Mary Lacey | 1/4/14

The one line in the song that always got to me and my husband was 'when faced with the past, the strongest man cries', This is so true, though not many men would admit it. Many of us have secret treasures, or little trinkets we don't think much about, but Dan bought out the secrets of those little treasures. All in all, one Dan's best, if not the best song he ever wrote/
