I, thought I knew you well
But all this time I could never tell
I, let you get away
Haunts me every night and every day

You, were the only one
The only friend that I counted on
How, could I watch you walk away
I'd give anything to have you here today

But now, I stand alone with my pride
And dream, that you're still by my side

But that was yesterday
I had the world in my hands
But it's not the end of my world (ooh ooh ooh)
Just a slight change of plans
That was yesterday
But today life goes on
No more hiding in yesterday (ooh ooh ooh)
'Cause yesterday's gone, ah-ah ah-ah aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Love, my love I gave it all
Thought I saw the light when I heard you call
Life, that we both could share
Has deserted me, left me in despair

But now, I stand alone with my pride
Fighting back the tears, I never let myself cry

But that was yesterday
Love was torn from my hands
But it's not the end of my world (ooh ooh ooh)
Just a little hard to understand
That was yesterday
But today life goes on
You won't find me in yesterday's world (ooh ooh ooh)
Now yesterday's gone
Goodbye yesterday
Now it's over and done
Still I hope somewhere deep in your heart (ooh ooh ooh)
Yesterday will live on, oh-oh oh-oh oooooooooooooooh
