"Yesterday" as written by and Kimbra Johnson....
I know you're happy when you smile
I know it's taken me awhile
I know I'm going out of style
10,000 miles from you
But everything is still O.K.
'Cause I'm closer everyday
Which is more than I would have to say
If I was next to you
Think of all the times and places
Step across the open spaces, that lead back to you

And you know that I won't let you go
Sometimes so near and now so far
Retrace the paces that have brought me here
Close my eyes and move along

Thinking, looking, hoping that I'll find a way
You know, that I, can't stop counting all the days
That you're not here to say
You know I miss you more
More than yesterday

I know sometimes that in my past
Lost direction had to ask
I know I wouldn't ever last
Without you
But everything is still O.K.
'Cause I'm closer everyday
Which is more than I would have to say
If I was next to you

What can I do?
Think of all the times and places
Step across the open spaces, that lead back to you

And you know that I won't let you go
Sometimes so near and now so far
Retrace the paces that have brought me here
Close my eyes and move along

    General CommentTo be honest, I got sick of this song quite quick - my Mp3 player seems to like playing it constantly and now it drives me nuts.

    General CommentOk, seriously, this is my favorite song of all time. I know that sounds outlandish, but I've thought about it and this song means so much to me. No other song can make me smile and think and dream like this one does, so many good memories associated with it. It was the first Mustard Plug song I heard and is still their best in my opinion. I have never gotten tired of it, ever! Thanks Mustard Plug for my favorite song ever!
