Lyrics
Yesterday
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Suddenly
I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly
Why she had to go, I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong
Now I long for yesterday
Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
Why she had to go, I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong
Now I long for yesterday
Yesterday
Love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Yesterday,
The aftertaste of bitterness,
Not towards anyone,
Just myself,
Looks as though it’s here to stay,
Did I do something wrong?
I don’t think so,
I don’t know,
I long for answers,
But they belong,
To yesterday,
I believe.

‪So sorry‬
‪did I do something wrong ‬
‪you could of said ‬
‪using words ‬
‪not this way ‬
‪Gotta go ‬
‪seem to be in trouble ‬
‪everyday ‬
‪I can’t take anymore ‬
‪you’re not who ‬
‪you used to be‬
‪that man seems‬
‪so far away‬
‪How I long for yesterday ‬

quiet my restless heart
with memories of
our yesterday
troubles apart
troubles away
the promise of us
lost in what was
yesterday
quiet my restless heart
I’m half of who
I used to be
as I long for us
in yesterday
sighs apart
sighs away
memories, couldn’t stay
I had to go
lost in the shadows
of yesterday
