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
