Where did he go
The man who said "I have a dream"
Where have they gone
The four who sang to "Let It Be"

Jackie's alone
She lost him one November day
L.A. Motel
One sad mistake took Sam away

Oh, remember then
Remember when

Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away

Sweet Janis cried
"Lord won't you buy a Benz for me"
Jimmy was right
Castles made of sand slip to the sea

Oh, remember then
Remember when

Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh in the magic of a yesterday

(Guitar solo)

Otis replied
A little tenderness we gotta try
One open door
He tried to set the night on fire

Captured by the moment
In the magic of a yesterday
Captured by the moment
And I hope it never fades away
Captured by the moment
Oh, in the magic of a yesterday
Oh whoa whoa
