Lyrics verse 1:
YOUR EYES ONCE TOLD ME A STORY
I BUILT MY CASTLES ON AIR.
LIFE WAS SOON DIMMED
OF ITS GLORY,
I LOVED
BUT YOU CEASED TO CARE.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

verse 2:
YOU BROKE THE NEWS TO ME
KINDLY,
I CAN'T SAY
YOU WERE NOT FAIR.
YET, JUST BECAUSE I LOVED
BLINDLY,
I HAVE THE BURDEN TO BEAR.

Chorus:
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME,
OF DAYS THAT USED TO BE,
I LIVE IN MEMORY
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
SOME LETTERS
TIED WITH BLUE,
A PHOTOGRAPH OR TWO,
I SEE A ROSE FROM YOU
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.

A FEW MORE TOKENS REST
WITHIN MY TREASURE CHEST,
AND THO' THEY DO THEIR BEST
TO GIVE ME CONSOLATION,

I COUNT THEM ALL APART,
AND AS THE TEAR DROPS START,
I FIND A BROKEN HEART
AMONG MY SOUVENIRS.
