"Yesterday to Tomorrow" as written by Brad Wilk, Chris Cornell, Timothy Commerford and Tom Morello....
Beauty is what the eyes behold
And you burn brighter than most
I chased you through the midnight streets
To be where I could speak freely
I didn't care what tomorrow held
I felt the world turning only for us
Only bliss now for you and me
Rise up let life's kiss send us reeling

And unlike the times before
From yesterday comes tomorrow
When life comes alive the past moves aside
No regrets and no remorse
Come on, come on, come on

We have more than everything
More than man or machine
More than luck
More than fiction
Higher than any religion

And unlike the times before
From yesterday comes tomorrow
When life comes alive the past moves aside
No regrets and no remorse

We'll squeeze the blood out of life
And say goodnight to the silver of old
And even when wrong we're right
Far beyond the world of diamonds and gold
I've come to realize
Where happiness lies
I want you to know I know
Come on, come on, come on

And unlike the times before
From yesterday comes tomorrow
When life comes alive the past moves aside
No regrets and no remorse
Come on, come on, come on uh uh

    General CommentEven when wrong we’re right
    Far beyond the world of diamonds and gold
    I’ve come to realize
    Where happiness lies
    I want you to know I know
    And unlike the times before
    When life comes alive the past moves aside
    No regrets no remorse

    I love those lines.. What a way to end a song.. This is great, lyrically, musically, a complete pacakge.. Audioslave are such a talented bunch of musicians.

    General Commenthahahaha you gotta love the comments above ;)
    This song is awesome because to me its a love song and it hasnt got any cheesy lines or anything. Its a love song with all the cornell brilliance. The thing I don't get though is its in past tense. It kinda makes it seem like something went wrong. Like he still loves this person but their relationship wasnt what it was. Anyways thats how I relate it to me, it makes me think of people who I was really close to, but now things have died down between us. Have a good one y'all

    General CommentAiR7oN, if your referring to the first verse i think its describing a moment insted of the entire relationship, the second verse is in present and the bridge is i nfuture tense, so I think its describing it as what happened, what is and whats coming, AMAZING song. I'm listening to it right now

    General CommentIt's about being crazy in love with someone and how that feels. . .I heard this and thought I wrote it myself. It's not clear where he's at in the relationship when he wrote this. . .did they split, reunite? Is he using what he learned in a new relatioship? Yeah, i don't know. . .but you'll find me singing in my car at the top of my lungs just like all the other Auddioslave songs.
