LyricsEdit

I stare at the stars and the sky up above
and think "what am I made of?"
Am I full of sorrow? Am I hurt and pained?
Or am I filled...with love?
I walk by myself on the streets below
and ask every child I know,
"Do you think tomorrow will bring sun or rain?
Which one of these will show?"

I can't say good-bye to yesterday, my friend,
I keep holding on 'till the end
Out of the darkness there is no other way
than the light leading to yesterday

It's there that I'll find
Inner peace not war
and dreams that I let slip away
I'll find the joyfulness I'm looking for
way back in yesterday

Why can't each of us in the world ever see,
the best things in life are free.
Little sounds of laughter, a warm hug, a smile,
a kiss from you to me

I fall to my knees
I cry and I cry
Love, do not pass me by
Happy ever after, please stay for a while
make time refuse to fly

I can't say good-bye to yesterday, my friend
'cause I know how good it has been
facing forever, here I stand, come what may
in the old and the new yesterday

It's there that I'll find,
inner peace, not war
and dreams that I let slip away
I'll find the joyfulness I'm looking for
way back in yesterday
