Carpenters – Only Yesterday lyrics

After long enough of being alone

Everyone must face their share of loneliness

In my own time nobody knew

The pain I was goin' through

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

Filing the world surrounding me

When I hold you

(*) Baby, Baby

Feels like maybe things will be all right

Baby, Baby

Your love's made me

Free as a song singin' forever

(**) Only yesterday when I was sad

And I was lonely

You showed me the way to leave

The past and all it's tears behind me

Tomorrow may be even brighter than today

Since I threw my sadness away

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

So much is left for us to see

When I hold you

Repeat (*)

Repeat (**) twice
