Yesterday

I am all I am,
   And I am no more.
Just as I was...
   Yesterday.


Yesterday, the world was so new
Yesterday, everything was true
Yesterday,
   I tried.

Yesterday, it was so special to me
Yesterday, I was going to be
Yesterday,
   I lied.

Yesterday, I had a reason why
Yesterday, I held my dreams up high
Yesterday,
   I cried.

Yesterday, I would have cared
Yesterday, I would have dared
Yesterday,
   I died.


And that’s all there is,
   And there is no more.
Yesterday is still yesterday.
