"Since Yesterday" as written by and Rose/bryson Mcdowall....
Just close your eyes and then remember
The thoughts you've locked away
When tomorrow comes you'll wish
You had today

[Chorus]
And as we sit here alone
Looking for a reason to go on
It's so clear that all we have now
Are our thoughts of yesterday

If you're still there when it's all over
I'm scared I'll have to say
That a part of you has gone
Since yesterday

[Chorus]

Well, maybe this could be the ending
With nothing left of you
A hundred wishes couldn't say
I don't want to

[Chorus]

It's so clear that all we have now
Are thoughts of yesterday

    General CommentThis has been up on SongMeanings for over a year yet I'm the first to comment it. Na ja, I'd say it's a beautiful lyric and that it's basically about how people's experiences and memories become shaped so quickly, though 'yesterday' could refer to the past than literally 24 hours ago.

    General CommentI think this song is about exlovers or childhood loves meeting for the first time in ages. I think they split up amicably maybe because one moved away and one still holds a flame for the other. They are both in unhappy relationships with other people and are reflecting on the happy times they once had together.

    Taking each bit...

    "Just close your eyes and then remember
    The thoughts you've locked away
    When tomorrow comes you'll wish
    You had today "

    Is like saying "Hey remember when we did this?" "Oh yeah we did that didnt we? Oh what wags we were!!" kind of thing.

    "And as we sit here alone
    Looking for a reason to go on
    It's so clear that all we have now
    Are our thoughts of yesterday"

    So theyre sat alone musing about their current situations and reflecting on the fun they had together. But the singer is saying "Yeah we had a good time but theyre best left as memories"

    "If you're still there when it's all over
    I'm scared I'll have to say
    That a part of you has gone
    Since yesterday"


    So the singers now saying "If you're still in the same situation when this is over then you're not the person you once were". Maybe the person she is singing this to once had more vie for life, ambition or confidence. Things that tend to suffer at end of a relationship.

    "Well, maybe this could be the ending
    with nothing left of you
    A hundred wishes couldn't say
    I don't want to "

    Then she is saying "But ok, you might be a pitiful wreck of the person you once were but if our situations were different I'd get back with you. I couldnt wish for anything else."

    Then again I might be talking utter crap. Cracking song though. Love the video.
