Or maybe something I read
It's like yesterday's over
Something I did
Or something I said
Like yesterday's gone
Something I felt
Or maybe something I thought
Like yesterday's over
Something I took
Something I sought
Like yesterday's gone

You used to dream
You used to fly
You used to be
My reason why
Used to be me
Useless to try
You used to dream

Something you heard
Is like yesterday's over
Something you did
Something you said
It's like yesterday's gone
Something you felt
Or maybe you touched
Like yesterday's over
Something you thought
Something you love
Like yesterday's gone
And yesterday's gone

I used to dream
I used to fly
I used to be
Your reason why
Used to be you
Now it's useless to try
I used to dream
You used to fly
You used to fly
I used to dream
You used to fly
I used to dream
You used to fly
I used to dream
You used to fly....

... I used to dream

    General Commenti've never even actually heard this song and just stumbled on it and i adore the cure... it sounds really sad.... like that regretting that comes with having to just continue on with your life. the very beginning reminds me of reading a newspaper in some old house and just not feeling any motivation. and the fact that it's like he's refusing to deny the fact that yesterday generally means that the day is over. it's like the days have just slid into one. ACTUALLY, more the like "yesterday" was an amazing day, absolutely euphoric in every way imaginable! and then it's like "today" is the crash. like something happened between the two people to just cause this hopeless depth of misunderstanding without the energy to fix things; like you literally don't know what happened but whatever did cut too deep to try to repair everything. this song also makes me think of an older couple, vivacious and spontaneous in their youth, but as they grow older and older, they lose all that and the song is one of them looking back..... i've never even heard the song yet the lyrics make me think all of this by themself. i love it... he's an amazing lyricist and writer....
