"Yesterdays" as written by W. Axl Rose, West Arkeen, Billy Mcmcloud, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin, Del James, Darren A. Reed and Matt Sorum....
Up from the ashes and over the hill
We knew more than we ever will
Back when the days passed by so slow
And now we'll never know
That sense that tomorrow was far away
And our dreams they never fade
We never thought the good times could end
Can we go back to those days - When everything was simple then?
And nothing could ever change
Can we go back to those days - We didn't have a care at all
I wish I could remain - Back in yesterdays
Pictures of another place and time
They seem like scenes from a different life
We didn't notice as the days went past
We knew it couldn't last
But looking back I wouldn't change a thing
The memories shared they'll always stay with me
We never thought the good times would end

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the high school days. When we just had a great time living in our little bubble with no real responsibilities. Dreams sky high and optomistic about the future. My oh my, how things have changed. "I wish I could remain - Back in yesterdays"

    General Commentthis is indeed their best song...I guess it's about your careless childhood, you've got nothing to worry about. And you think that everything in life is good 'till you get on an age that you start to realise that it ain't all so nice as you thought when you where young. So now you want to go back to "yesterdays" (your childhood)

    General CommentIt actually says this for the second verse:
    Up from the shadows of our days gone by
    They seem like scenes from a different life

    General Commentthe song was written after 9-11. the song is about simpler times, before the world got all crazy with war. its about hanging out with friends and laughing. not the crap today is with war and suffering

    General CommentIts about wanting to relive the good old days. Its that basic? Actually, it can relate to the 9-11 shit and how everything before than seemed perfect, even though it wasn't. Even Pennywise can agree

    General Commenti guess this song means alot to pretty much anyone who listens to it as many people remmeber the old carefree days of their childhood, even i would like eerything to be like it was before my parents split, and im only 16, so im sure it would mean alot more to older people.
