Billie Holiday – Yesterdays lyrics

Jerome Kern / Otto Harbach

Yesterdays
Yesterdays
Days I knew as happy sweet
Sequestered days
Olden days
Golden days
Days of mad romance and love

Then gay youth was mine
Truth was mine
Joyous free in flame and life
Then sooth was mine
Sad am I
Glad am I
For today I'm dreamin' of
Yesterdays

Yesterdays

Days I knew as happy sweet
Sequestered days

For then gay youth was mine
Truth was mine
Joyous free in flame and life
Then sooth was mine
Sad am I
Glad am I
For today I'm dreamin' of
Yesterdays
