Music and Lyrics: John Francisco and Nick Davio
Arrangement: John Francisco and Nick Davio
Don’t you remember yesterday?
How it was genuinely great? Can’t you relate?
How I wish I could have stayed in that peaceful perfect day
But all the hours gently ticked away.
Yesterday was flawless,
Yesterday was lovely,
Yesterday was all the things
I want my life to be.
But yesterday was fleeting
And now it’s in the past.
Why don’t the best of moments last?
Life was easy, life was free,
Life was just as it should be, at least for me.
But today is not the same, there’s not a smile to my name.
I’m losing at a never-ending game.
And if today is awful
Tomorrow will be awful
The next day will be awful
And so on, so you see,
I think I’ll just retreat
And give in to defeat
I wish this day were soft and sweet
Where everything was nice and neat,
A day that I’d like to repeat
from The Ballad of the Itsy Bitsy Spider and Other Surprises,
