only yesterday
i heard you moved away
why didn't you call and tell me
you wouldn't be back no more

only yesterday
i had a nasty nightmare
i found myself in nowhere
i didn't like it at all

only yesterday
we talked about the good times
forgave ourselves the old crimes
then you went back home

only yesterday
i took your hand in my hand
tried so hard to understand
it hurt and me and i cried

only yesterday
they told me you moved away
i couldn't find the words to say
i'll try to carry on

only yesterday
this party lost it's flavour
though there seemed so much to savour
it never meant a thing

only yesterday
you told me to be happy
though sometimes i can be snappy
i'll do the best i can
