Fogelberg's wonderful words and phrases and make them our own.
It is the way we relate to all poetry and "Same Old Lang Syne" is certainly poetry. Two times in my life I managed to "reach beyond the emptiness" and reconnect with former loves.
But the lines that I don't see considered often are in the chorus.
Following the toasts to "innocence" and to "now" are the lines that, for me at least, resonate with the longing felt by most everybody who ever loved, and lost, their "First Love": "And tried to reach beyond the emptiness /But neither one knew how," seem to describe both of them longing to reach out and perhaps reconnect, but neither being quite able to.
Neither of them could find their way through "the emptiness" that they obviously sensed still lay between them.
This is true for him because of the way he felt as he "watched her drive away" and his sadness watching the snow turning into rain.
And probably true for her as well because she is stuck in a loveless marriage.
He isn't married at the time (not until 1982) and her marriage seems on a downward spiral.
And even to this day, I am happily married to a wonderful man and we have a baby on the way, but I can't help but feel a little sad when I see him smiling at me.Now we can't possible know what was in the heads and hearts of Dan and Jill all those many years ago. But in a sense, it almost doesn't matter because the song belongs to all of us now.We can, and do, take our own meanings and interpretations of Mr.I'm more inclined to believe the lines about tough conversation were more to do with both realizing they are still attracted to each other but what could they do? The phrase, "the snow turned into rain" obviously has different meaning for different people, but from the first time I heard it, I just thought of how beautiful it can be to walk through a gentle snowfall and how miserable it is to be in a freezing winter rain. Notice in his song "Hard to Say" he sings the words "..why each time the sky begins to snow, you cry..you miss her when she is far away".Probably somewhat speechless, probably somewhat awkward, but not enough to keep them from forgetting their families for awhile. He's watching a love in his life slip away again, just like she did back in their school days. And how he went from one of those sensations to the other went he went from that 'moment back at school' to reality.*** 'The beer was empty and our tongues were tired' *** On February 15th 1981, "Same Old Lang Syne" by Dan Fogelberg peaked at #9 (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on December 7th, 1980 at position #75 and spent 18 weeks on the Top 100... I think these lyrics are refering to the the same person in the "Same Old Lang Syne". This would also explain the other lyrics in "Hard to Say'This song reminds me a lot of being an adult and looking back at a time that was more innocent.
