"Yesterday Man" as written by James Robert Robertson and Kevin Rosaire Bellemare....

Baby, I’ll be loving you long after the rain
has washed away your memory and watered down the pain
I know that I’ve been playing in the streets a little late
I’ve done some foolish shit, I know I’ve made a few mistakes

But I don’t wanna be your Yesterday Man
Baby, could you let me back in

I’m so lonely
Not only when you leave me, Oh Oh
I’m so lonely

The street’s a little colder when you’re all up on my mind
I can’t keep on pretending that I’m truly satisfied
I’m not a fucking rock, you know, I feel these troubles too
So don’t keep on playing like it’s all about you

Cause I don’t wanna be your Yesterday man
Baby, could you let me back in

I’m so lonely
Not only when you leave me, Oh Oh
I’m so lonely (2X)

Hush, we can’t keep living this way
We were supposed to be mad lovers, not just tricks of the trade
I’m in a rage, but I can’t let my feelings show
There’s more to life than falling hard and waking up all alone, ya know?
You used to let me know life wasn’t hard
Now I’m scared by the lies that’s been told to my heart
Cause life ain’t nothing but a birth and a death
And I’m stuck in the middle, still struggling for breath

I’m so lonely
Not only when you leave me, Oh Oh
I’m so lonely (2X)

    MemoryWell, my boyfriend broke up with me a few days ago.. And this makes me think of what we went through. We talk, we're "friends," or as close to friends as can be expected. I'm lonely when he's online because I miss what he was to me. Friends doesn't seem to be enough. So that's how I take this song.

    A break up, and now he's reflecting on the circumstances.

    And again. That's how *I* take this.
