"Souvenirs" as written by Cameron Bird, James Cecil, Kellie Sutherland, Sam Perry and Jamie Mildren....
La, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

With an envelope we'll enter buildings we might touch
I've got souvenirs but yesterday can't mean too much
Have we missed an opportunity?
Have we missed an opportunity?

Whispers, Chinese leaves a message, leaves a metaphor
For what once was gold and once was rich but now is poor
Have we missed an opportunity?
And the trees lean to lend
Can I fold you in fourteen ways to depend not defend?

    God, that line gets me every time. And that lovely little musical outro doesn't help of course.

    General Comment"Have we missed an oppurtunity?"

    I couldn't have said it any better myself. This song has such a tranquil, bittersweet feel to it. Anyone and everyone who has lived can understand that line.

    This song is a pivitol one for all kinds of mixtapes, an incredibly haunting, touching, inspiring piece of music. Simply lovely.

    General CommentI think this song is just about how you can't go back in time, all you've got is your memories, and you're constantly wondering if you got it right.

    "I’ve got souvenirs but yesterday can’t
    mean too much, have we missed an opportunity."

    souvenirs being memories.
    yesterday can't mean to much because otherwise you'd just be constantly stuck in the past.

    idk. thats the vibe that I got from it.
    definitly a brilliant song though.
