I remember like yesterday
I carried a heart without hope
I'd given up on mystery
I only saw mirrors and smoke
Thought I was fine alone...
It's just because I didn't know

I remember like yesterday
Loving you seemed far away
We were friends in different places
Then love began leaving traces...
Sitting with you on a crowded bus
Seemed like just the two of us
That night everything was changed
I remember like yesterday

I was living in black and white,
A careful and colorless life
You are like a neon light
Shining through my closed eyes
All the "right ones" they turned out wrong
But you were here all along

I remember like yesterday
Loving you seemed far away
We were friends in different places
Then love began leaving traces...
Little folded up love letters
Sweet songs written for each other
Everything was about to change
I remember like yesterday

You came just in time for me
Changed my mind so easily
Now it's you and me

I remember like yesterday
Loving you seemed far away
We were friends in different places
Then love began leaving traces...
For the first time I love you
On a Paris afternoon
And now everything has changed
I remember like yesterday

I remember like yesterday
Loving you seemed far away
Thought I could live without you
So glad I finally found you
On the street in the pouring rain
Our lives both found their wings
I love how everything changed
I remember cause it's today

(... in the starlight after dark...)
(... sweet kisses in the pouring rain...)

    I think like yesterday is a song about how love will always be mutual - even if it takes a thousand years for the loved one to realize. The song speaks about "friends in different places" which means that one friend probably loved the other, while the loved friend didn't know. The song is written in the perspective of the one in love. The lyrics "love began leaving traces" and "it's just because i didn't know" give big hints to the one in love finding that the one they love, loves them back.

    Just my opinion - it has thousands of meanings , really.

    Like yesterday by colbie caillat, in my opinion, is a song about how love can change your life. Especially if it's love with the right person. In my opinion, that's what i believe this song means. It reminds me i'm with the right guy. This song reminds me of him. Here's to you, joe. Heehee. So sweet. - jenna age 17
