Lyrics
Verse 1:
Yesterday won't go away
Still sitting here with me
The absence of her love
Weighs heavily
How can I understand
I don't think I can
Hoping for some light
But yesterday won't go away

Refrain:
Feels like I'm falling down
Like rain I just hit the ground
Can't seem to find my way through

My heart's all in a bind
Yet I hope some peace to find
But yesterday won't go away

Verse 2:
The days slowly passing
I lie awake at night
The quiet echoes softly
The stillnes sheds no light
And if she were here
She'd whisper sweetly in my ear,
"Darling, you got to be strong"
But yesterday won't go away.

Refrain:
Feels like I'm falling down
Like rain I just hit the ground
Can't seem to find my way through

My heart's all in a bind
Yet I hope some peace to find
But yesterday won't go away

Such a nice
