"Yesterday" as written by Louis Biancaniello, Sam Watters, Mike Mani, Nina Woodford and Jordan Omley....
I just cant believe your gone
Still waitin' for mornin' to come
When I see if the sun will rise, in the way that your by my side
Well we got so much in store
Tell me what is it I'm reaching for
When were through building memories ill hold yesterday in my heart
In my heart

They can take tomorrow and the plans we made
They can take the music that we never play
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday
They can take the future that we'll never know
They can take the places that we said we will go
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday

You always choose to stay
I should be thankful for everyday
Heaven knows what the future holds, or least where the story goes
I never believed until now
I know I'll see you again I'm sure
No its not selfish to ask for more
One more night one more day one more smile on your face
But they cant take yesterday

They can take tomorrow and the plans we made
They can take the music that we never play
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday
They can take the future that we'll never know
They can take the places that we said we will go
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday

I thought our days would last forever
But it wasn't our destiny
Cause in my mind we had so much time, but I was so wrong
No I can believe that
I can still find the strength in the moments we made
I'm lookin' back on yesterday

They can take tomorrow and the plans we made
They can take the music that we never play
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday
They can take the future that we'll never know
They can take the places that we said we will go
All the broken dreams take everything
Just take it away, but they can never have yesterday

All the broken dreams take everything
But they can never have yesterday

    General CommentIn this song I think she's trying to sing it to an ex or someone she's love that is no longer there. Basically, no matter what's lost and whats gone...what isn't lost is yesterday..... the memories you have lives on forever and thats something NO ONE can take from you.

    General CommentI love this song..i think basically..its about a failed relationship but even though its over and all the plans for the future are destroyed all the good times from the past will always be with her in the back of her mind...

    General Commentto me this song relates to my best friend and cousin who died
    i'll never forget all the memories that we shared
    and they can take the plans we may of had for tomorrow, but they cant take all the memories and good times we had
    i just want to have one more day with him and want to see that smile on his face one more time
    but i know one thing i'll always have is our good times
    "i should be thankful for everyday, heaven knows what the future
    holds"

    General CommentI think this song can either be interpreted as a break up song or as the loss of a loved one.


    "Just cant believe your gone, still waitin for mornin to come, when i see if the sun will
    Rise"
    It's like losing them, they lost everything. They feel everything should have stopped because with the loss of that person everything in their world seems wrong.

    "They can take tomorrow and the plans we made, they can take the music that we'll never play, all
    The broken dreams, take everything, just take it away, but they can never have yesterday."
    I think that line is beautiful. This song is bascially saying that without this person they lost their dreams they lost the plans they had, everything. But they will learn to live with the memories of yesterday and they dont regret knowing them because the memories they shared made the pain of losing them in the end worth it anyways.

    It really is a beautiful song. Leona has stunning vocals. She is my favorite female singer. :]

    General Commentamazing song. the precious memories of her relationship will always stay with her, and she still loves the ex but its too late and all the memories are gone.

    General CommentI think this song is more likley to be about the loss of a loved one rather than an "Ex." In the chorus she refers to a "they" which i assume is like god or the powers that be up above, in death they have taken him away very suddenly. They have taken their entire future but they can never erase their past and her memories of him.

    >You always choose to stay, i should be thankful for everyday, heaven knows what the future
    Holds, or least where the story goes, i never believed untill now, i know il see you again <

    This line proves with a 100% certainty it's about losing a loved one. If he always chooses to stay why would he leave. Also saying "I know I will see you again" is generally what you say about someone who has passed on. I think if an EX up and left me I would be filled with despair but also anger and rage. There is none of this in this song, it's v peaceful and tranquil. A very emotional song, I wish she had released it as a single.
