I keep building a new world but you keep tearing it down
I keep beating my heart out but you keep running around
There's no place in your life for me I'm just yesterday's best
You just keep me around you to give your conscience a rest
I can see no tomorrows and only few yesterdays
I'm not happy without you and I'm not happy this way
You just keep me around you to give your conscience a rest
I know I should leave you since I'm yesterday's best
[ guitar ]
I can see no tomorrows...
I know I should leave you since I'm yesterday's best
