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.

Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm.

    This song leaves me speechless. The Beatles live on! This, to me, is one of their best songs. The tune came to Paul in a dream. And he managed to tie it together with these deep lyrics. Wow.

    The Beatles' songs are always easy to relate to because, like lizzie doodle13 said, they have very deep lyrics. They get to the point. Just about anyone can listen at least one song the Beatles did and it bring back memories and/or tears to their eyes. this is one of those songs for alot of people.
