Yesterday seems like a long time ago
when you kissed me, a light sparkling in your eyes
birds stopped singing and time stood still
as you and I stood alone in the world.
Yesterday was a memory of the past
we had youth and precious freedom
when fortune seemed forever on our side
not yet knowing what changes time would soon bring.
Yesterday was a glimpse of the future
a new life that could be
when the rest of the world falls away
and it is you and I once again.
