MEMORIES OF YESTERDAY

On a plane across the ocean, I really can't remember to where
For hours looking out a dark window, I'm lost in a blank stare
Just thinking about you.. Girl, I'm thinking about you
How can we really be through

The last time I made this journey, we were doing just fine
Out my window was bright hope, seemed the world was mine
Just thinking about you.. Girl, I'm thinking about you
How can we really be through

Every moment that passes
I'm taken further away
Flying into an unknown future
Clinging to memories of yesterday

Yeah, the way that I held you, oh, sweet desire in your eyes
Stars winked their approval, when we kissed under night skies 
Just thinking about you.. Girl, I'm thinking about you
How can we really be through

Every moment that passes
I'm taken further away
Flying into an unknown future
Clinging to memories of yesterday

A penny for your thoughts, and a million more if they're of me
I know you've turned the page, but I'm held captive by fantasy

Every moment that passes
I know love will find a way
If I'll just keep believing, and
Clinging to memories of yesterday

So I'll just keep believing..
That somehow love will find a way

Every moment that passes..
Clinging to memories of yesterday

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a sad song of reflection of what once was and is no more.  She's never coming back into his life. She's moved on. But he is stuck in the memories of yesterday!

Really nice and it took me to my flight but we don't really know our destination our minds are way up in the air. But we find our peace let it be someone that really cares to find love it's somehow mind-boggling but the best part is cuddling Love will find a way its not just any day it's in our heart to always remain and stay

A tough realization. I can see this one being sung by Willy Nelson.

G'day Lyric Man … a nice lyric set based on emotion and a touch of denial so keeps lingering on in the mind - well done - Lindsay

Lyric Man. Thanks for your kind words of some of my work. This is a most powerful song of something lost in reality but refuses to die in the memory. A great job with a sad song. Blessings my friend.

then there are those who adeptly practice selective amnesia... a lovely write tinged with regret that is life :)

He sure IS stuck, isn't he?! --Put himself into a no-win situation, a flight that brings the memories pouring back -- But yes, that's what we romantics do until we finally wise up and move on. Poignant pen, L.M. :) gw

Its the first time we meet through our poems reviews, I can only write, please next time you write me a review by telling me all the adorable feelings of my writing. Why? because you are thee best ever. Wow Wow, I just love it, so sentimental, and yet so sad, the past is my worst enemy. Wish you all the best. Terry
