- - - |G / / / | All the snow has turned to water, A / / / |D / / / | - Christmas days have come and gone, D / / / |G / / / | - Broken toys and faded colours, A / / / |D / / / | - Are all that's left to linger on.

2.

I hate graveyards and old pawn shops, For they always bring me tears, I can't forgive the way they rob me, Of my childhood souvenirs.

chorus:

A / / / |D / / / - Memo-ries that can't be bought 'n', |A / / / |D / / / | They can't be won at carni-vals for free, A / / / |D / / / - It took me years - to get those souve-nirs, |G / / / |A / / / | I don't know how they slipped a-way from me.

3.

Broken hearts and dirty windows, Make life difficult to see, That's why last night and this morning, Always look the same to me.

4.

I hate reading old love letters, For they always bring me tears, I can't forgive the way they rob me, Of my sweetheart's souvenirs.
