Song of the Week

Today’s Song of the Week is Yesterday by Leona Lewis. This song has not been released in the US, but it’s fabulous, and I encourage all to take a listen. In particular, I dedicate this song to my friend D, who is going through a really tough time right now. D–my thoughts are with you through this difficult time.

Here are the lyrics, courtesy again of LyricWiki:

I just can’t believe you’re gone
Still waiting for morning to come
Wanna see if the sun will rise
Even without you by my side
When we have so much in store
Tell me what it is I’m reaching for
When we’re through building memories
I’ll hold yesterday in my heart
In my heart

Chorus
They can take tomorrow and the plans we made
They can take the music that we’ll never play
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away
But they can never have yesterday
They can take the future that we’ll never know
They can take the places that we said we would go
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away
But they can never have yesterday

You always used to say
I should be thankful for every day
Heaven knows what the future holds
Or at least how the story goes
(But I never believed them till now)
I know I’ll see you again I’m sure
No it’s not selfish to ask for more
One more night, one more day
One more smile on your face
But they can’t take yesterday

Chorus

I thought our days would last forever
(But it wasn’t our destiny)
‘Cause in my mind we had so much time
But I was so wrong
Now I can believe that
I can still find the strength
In the moments we made
I’m looking back on yesterday

Chorus

All the broken dreams take everything
But they can never have yesterday
