Lost In Yesterday

  • When we were livin' in squalor, wasn't it heaven?
    Back when we used to get on it four out of seven
    Now even though that was a time I hated from day one
    Eventually terrible memories turn into great ones

    So if they call you
    Embrace them
    If they hold you
    Erase them

    'Cause it might've been something, who's to say?
    Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
    And you might've missed something, don't say
    'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
    And you're gonna have to let it go someday
    You've been diggin' it up like Groundhog Day
    'Cause it might've been something, don't say
    'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday

    Matty said life didn't go the way that he planned it
    Said, "Oh, what I'd give to start over, boy I'd command it"
    So what was I ever afraid of? Why did I worry?
    And why was I ever so brainless? Head in a flurry

    'Cause they call you
    Embrace them
    If they stall you
    Erase them

    'Cause it might've been something, who's to say?
    Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
    And you might've missed something, don't say
    'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
    And you're gonna have to let it go someday
    You've been pickin' it up like Groundhog Day
    'Cause it might've been something, don't say
    'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday

    If it calls you
    Embrace it
    If it haunts you
    Face it

    I know it's mad, I understand
    It's only snakes and ladders
    The period you never had
    There's only one that matters

    And if it calls you
    Embrace it
    If it holds you
    Erase it
    Erase it Writer/s: Kevin Parker
