Thread Name: Let's write a song together!
Subject: RE: Let's write a song together!
It barely seems like yesterday
You held me by the hand
We walked along the seashore
kicked our shoes off in the sand
Then up along the riverbank
and to the shady glen
I'd part with all I own
Just to have yesterday again.

Ah but that was in the springtime
When the air was fresh and clear
We never had a worry
Never shed a single tear
But now my heart grows heavy
As I ponder back to then
Won't somebody please show me
The way to yesterday again

Well the summers nearly over
And the nights are closing in
The sparrow long since left her nest
The geese are on the wing
And all the joys we ever had
We'll never share again
But please God above can I
Just have one yesterday again

So now I'll say goodbye my love
But as you slip away
Please know my heart is aching
Just to make it through the day
Though now we may be parted
Still I pray that in the end
When I've reached my last tomorrow
We'll share yesterday again
