Cardigans – Only Yesterday lyrics

After long enough of being alone
Ev'ryone must face their share of loneliness
In my own time nobody knew the pain I was goin' thru
And waitin' was all my heart could do.

Hope was all I had until you came
Maybe you can't see how much you mean to me
You were the dawn breaking the night
The promise of morning light
Filling the world surrounding me.

When I hold you
Feels like maybe thinks will be allright.
Baby Baby your love's made me

Only yesterday when I was sad anld I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past
And all it's tears behind me.
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Since only yesterday.
I have found my home here in your arms
Nowhere else on earth I'd really rather be.
Life waits for us
Share it with me
The best is about to be.
And so much is left for us to see.
When I hold you
.. .
