Yesterday Remains

Liner Notes: 

I wanted to get another song posted before close and I saw that I missed one of the mega super skirmish prompts over the weekend - so here it is!

Prompt was Yesterday Remains

Lyrics: 

V1
dinners canceled
working nights late
telling me something
about our fate
shadows dancing
on bedroom walls
through the window
I saw it all

PC
and though
I can forgive
I can't forget

C
because
yesterday remains
tomorrow will never
be the same
as the day I was once
hoping for...
as the day
I would love you
even more...
because of
yesterday's remains
some of that love
has gone away
today

oh the pain of
yesterday
remains....

V2
long discussions
throughout the night
saying I love you
doesn't feel quite right
cautious kisses
in living rooms
can't promise you that
I'll get there soon

PC
as though
I can forgive
I can't forget

C
because
yesterday remains
tomorrow will never
be the same
as the day I was once
hoping for...
as the day
I would love you
even more...
because of
yesterday's remains
some of that love
has gone away
today

oh the pain of
yesterday
remains....

So glad you came across this, Liz. The few words you chose inspired a really great set of lyrics! I like how you used those subtle differences between "yesterday remains" and (yesterday's remains).

Very nice written. Great way of showing the anxiety in such a relationship issue that could come up. Lovely done.
