Kingston Wall – The Real Thing lyrics

Yesterday was such a fine day for me to live
Yesterday everything was in my head in one(*) piece(^peace)
I had my time to lie down and just to wonder 'round
I had my time to go nto the system of sounds
And I think it over
No one(*) can keep this time from running out
No one(*) can keep this time from running out
It's meant to be wasted(^tasted) the party goes on
One(*) day I'll finish everything that I have begun
One(*) day I'll explain, Oh yes, and you will
Understand (stand under?)
Work now and rest later, rest now and work later on?
One(*) day is someday but now I will have to go on
Before it's over
