Remember only yesterday,when life it seemed so fine
It seems like only yesterday,when you were really mine,
Remember how we loved to laugh and sing and joke all day
But when I think about it now,it seems so far away.
The skies,they always seemed so blue,the grass was always green
The world,it seemed such a beautiful place,such as I had never seen,
When waking up, was so exciting,to yet another day
We never had to plan or strive,it just turned out that way.
With songs in our heart,and love in our eyes,we loved and really lived
It really felt so good back then,I remember,it really did,
What ever happened to it all,I try so hard to see
How could it have ever ended,I thought it was meant to be.
For the times we shared,the fun we had,the love I used to know
I have nothing now that's left of them,only memories to show,
That I once lived,and I once loved,and had recieved it in return,
The fire in my heart,it's never burnt out,the flame inside still burns.
