Guy Garvey – Yesterday lyrics
[Verse 1]
Love came down like a cooling tower
Where an hour glass yesterday
Just dust and self-loathing (ooooh)
And un-returned clothing (ooooh)
The life stands still at an unmanned till
But the slow walk home in the evening chill
Have me feeling pretty virtuous
Until I see her
The flashing indicators of my favourite saboteur
And suddenly

[Chorus]
All my darkest dreams come swimming in to focus
And it's hopeless
To resist you cross your wrist some twisted prayer or supplication
Ten Hail Mary's in the morning


[Verse 2]
She left town like a medicine show
In an oh so familiar scene
And I vowed forever solo (oooh)
Time to focus on the crocuses
Till I'm through it and I'm zen
And I'll do it again
I'm a diligent village idiot toeing the line but watching for a sign
And when this cheap red wine or the big blue moon
Come to me my little ingenue
Suddenly

[Chorus]
All my darkest dreams come swimming in to focus
And it's hopeless
To resist you cross your wrist some twisted prayer or supplication
Ten Hail Mary's in the morning

[Verse 3]
Love is a push and a shove sometimes
Suddenly

[Chorus]
All my darkest dreams come swimming in to focus
And it's hopeless
To resist you cross your wrist some twisted prayer or supplication
Ten Hail Mary's in the morning
All my darkest dreams come swimming in to focus
And it's hopeless
To resist you cross your wrist some twisted prayer or supplication
Ten Hail Mary's in the morning
I am reborn
Cause my girl loves yesterday
And lives for tomorrow
