Like Yesterday

Album: All Of You (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The song was co-written by Caillat's boyfriend, musician Justin Young. She told Billboard magazine the experience was, "so much fun. I've never been interested in musicians before, and now having a boyfriend that plays amazing guitar and piano and has a beautiful voice… it's cheesy but it's awesome, because we write these songs about our relationship and it brought us closer together."
  • Caillat and Young penned the song with Jason Reeves in Hawaii in 2010. She explained to AOL Music: "It's about how our relationship blossomed and how it surprised us. [The] chorus of the song [is], 'I remember like yesterday, lovin' you seemed far away, we were friends in different places, then love began leavin' traces.'"
