Yo La Tengo – Today Is The Day lyrics

I followed you.. Foolishly
You were at a smoky bar, you were out til three
Sat alone inside my car, it was nearly four
We were gonna wait for you all night
So I locked the door

I was gonna spend the night, coulda been okay
We were gonna talk all night, till I went away
Remember how you used to say, can't stay up late
A minute later we're older now, I can't stay awake
I'm driving by your parent's farm, in the Chevrolet
I remember that rusty car, like it was yesterday

Saw my brother driving by, the other day
I wished that I'd go out to him, but he drove away
Saw my sister standing there, standing in rain
Then I thought about nothing, that it feels the same

Another day, come and gone
Don't think I can ever sing that song
Little secrets we bring along
I'm taking my time, trailing behind, I thought of you
Today is the day I think of you
