Nice prompt! Tried to do a little more than usual. Need more time to make this into something good I think.

Lyrics: 

Yesterday Remains
September 29, 2017
http://parksandrececommerce.com/JohnStaplesMusic-50-90/JohnStaples-YesterdayRemains.mp3

tried to find a reason
to go on and on and on
but I missed another season
as you dropped the bomb

only thing I have
is just a memory
of you screaming out my name
and then begging me

to stay
another day
to help you find your way

but yesterday is all we have together
the thrill was no replacement for the pain
the days gone by are all we had forever
I can't see you now but yesterday remains

I thought that we'd be living
out our fantasies of love
but I missed another reason
when you played too rough

fear I had I understand
you fed to me
as I'm screaming out your name
I want this memory

to stay
another day
to help me find my way

yesterday is all we have together
the thrill was no replacement for the pain
the days gone by are all we had forever
I can't see you now but yesterday remains

I still want you
I wish it were not true
if I only had one wish
I'd wish I never knew

yesterday is all we have together
the thrill was no replacement for the pain
days gone by are all we had forever
I can't see you now but yesterday remains
I can't see you now but yesterday remains

Thank you, John! I'm so glad you gave this prompt a try. The strumming and your vocals always go so very well together, but even knowing that beforehand, this still amazed and pleased my ears. That chorus is awesome!

You have such a natural feel to your playing and singing here. The lyrics have that universal yet specific feel, and the melody just fits like a glove. I think this song is already something special.

Beautiful work especially for a skirmish. Heartfelt, touching lyrics and delivery.
