SouvenirsBy: vince melamed, danny o’keefe1993Someone wants a piece of youNever let ’em payWhat you do not give themTime takes anywayHad I known what love is worthI could have saved the tearsMight have come in handyLike souvenirsI didn’t see her comin’’til my head turned in surpriseThinking I must know herBut it was her thin disguiseShe padded up her innocenceAnd tightly cinched her fearsBut she saved a little roomFor souvenirsI still go to piecesBut I don’t go as oftenPlaceless times in spaceWhere all the edges softenShe took me awayWhere I couldn’t send herI knew that she would leave meSomething to rememberI wanted more than oneUntil I found the one I wantedHer memories are ghosts nowThough I’m still pretty hauntedWhat we gave each otherAin’t exactly clearProbably comes under the headingOf souvenirsPieces, bits, and piecesAdd up through the yearsI’ve collected a small fortuneIn souvenirs
