"Yesterday" as written by and Jeremiah Rangel....
I said sit back relax it's not the end,
We're gonna postpone it, put if off again,
Our separate paths will lead us different ways,
But the care remains, It will always stay,

CHORUS:
Yesterday's not all that bad,
Sorry I could not make this last.
Yesterday's not all we have,
Sorry I could not make this last.

One thing I need from you that's honesty,
Please never lie to me, is what she said to me.
One thing for sure is that I will be true,
In everything I do, that's what I learned from you.

Being on the road is tough on everyone,
Because you're here then gone, it takes so long,
Being on the road is tough on everyone,
Because you're here then gone, it takes so long,
Being on the road is tough on everyone,
Because you're here then gone, it takes so long,
Being on the road is tough on everyone,
Because you're here then gone, seems like it takes so long,

CHORUS:
Yesterday's not all that bad,
Sorry I could not make this last.
Yesterday's not all we have,
Sorry I could not make this last.

    General Commenti love mest and i love this song! the best part is:
    One thing I need from you that's honesty,
    Please never lie to me, is what she said to me.
    One thing for sure is that I will be true,
    In everything I do, that's what I learned you.

    General Commentthis song holds alot of memories for me. I had a friend die Jan 2nd this year. The part when it says "being on the road is tough on everyone because you are here then gone" I get so choked up because he died in a car accident coming home from another city. I wish I could have made "yesterday" (our time together) last.

    General CommentThis song make me cry sooo much because I too lost someone dear to me in a car crash a day after I told her that I loved her for the first time on our first date. And we were big Mest fans. I listen to this song everyday and think of her. I still love you Holly.... :(

    General CommentThis is my favorite Mest song. It's about a guy and a girl who are in love and rarely get to see each other because he's on the road often, yet they still trust each other and know they are commited. What I personally get from the song (this has nothing to do with the actual meaning of it) is that you should have no regrets about the past, and you should look back and remember the good times and take the bad and learn from it.
