เนื้อเพลง Same Old Lang Syne

Same Old Lang Syne

 

Dan Fogelberg

 

Met my old lover in the grocery store

 

The snow was falling Christmas Eve

 

I stole behind her in the frozen foods

And I touched her on the sleeve

 

She didn't recognize the face at first

 

But then her eyes flew open wide

 

She went to hug me and she spilled her purse

And we laughed until we cried

 

We took her groceries to the checkout stand

 

The food was totalled up and bagged

 

We stood there lost in our embarrassment

As the conversation dragged

 

We went to have ourselves a drink or two

 

But couldn't find an open bar

 

We bought a six-pack at the liquor store

And we drank it in her car

 

We drank a toast to innocence

We drank a toast to now

 

And tried to reach beyond the emptiness

 

But neither one knew how

 

She said she'd married her an architect

 

Who kept her warm and safe and dry

 

She would have liked to say she loved the man

But she didn't like to lie

 

I said the years had been a friend to her

 

And that her eyes were still as blue

 

But in those eyes I wasn't sure if I saw

 

Doubt or gratitude

 

She said she saw me in the record stores

 

And that I must be doing well

 

I said the audience was heavenly

But the traveling was hell

 

We drank a toast to innocence

We drank a toast to now

 

And tried to reach beyond the emptiness

 

But neither one knew how

 

We drank a toast to innocence

We drank a toast to time

 

Reliving in our eloquence

 

Another 'auld lang syne'

 

The beer was empty and our tongues were tired

 

And running out of things to say

 

She gave a kiss to me as I got out

And I watched her drive away

 

Just for a moment I was back at school

 

And felt that old familiar pain

 

And as I turned to make my way back home

 

The snow turned into rain
