Souvenir Lyrics

Artist: Billy Joel
Album: Streetlife Serenade

A picture postcard
A folded stub
A program of the play
File away your photographs
Of your holiday

And your mementos
Will turn to dust
But that's the price you pay
For every year's a souvenir
That slowly fades away
Every year's a souvenir
That slowly fades away

One of the most simply beautiful and sad songs I have ever listened to.
Probably I love that song due to my age as I am not a young man anymore. Young people will not react with equal sensitivity.
I would say that this song could alone justify the fame of Billy Joel.

not a single , superfluous note in this perfect song. Genius.
