ONE OF MY ALL TIME favorite's
Written by Dan Fogelberg

Same Old Lang Syne

Met my old lover at 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 ofr two But couldn't find a 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 achitect 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 grartatude
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 ' old 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 our 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 in to rain....
