"Yesterdays Gone" as written by Kele Okereke and Alex Xxxchange....
Calm down sweetheart, take the air in
Wont you smile for me.
Wipe the tears away from your eyes
Its not all that it seems.
Calm down sweetheart, take the air in
Wont you smile for me.
Wipe the tears away from your eyes
Its not all that it seems.

Open the window, let the sunlight there kiss your face(yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Open the window let the sunlight there kiss your face(yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Golden

You’ve felt sadness you’ve felt hunger
But you are still here.
Make a space for all the good times
Store them in your heart.
You’ve felt sadness you’ve felt hunger
But you are still here.
Make a space for all the good times
Store them in your heart.

Open the window let the sunlight there kiss your face (yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Open the window let the sunlight there kiss your face(yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Golden

This is your moment.
You gotta take it in.
You might of said that you been burned, but blackened how we know.
This is your moment.

Open the window let the sunlight there kiss your face (yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Open the window let the sunlight there kiss your face(yesterdays gone)
Cause these days are golden, golden.
Golden

    General CommentYeah first comment!!!! This is such a well written song and probably my favourite, a good way to finish the album, has a nice upbeat rhythm to it.

    General Commentwhat it means to me, well its clear.

    the golden years of life itself, the potential that is here when you are at the peak of your life.
    even if you have gone through tough times, even then, i suggest there are upsides.

    maybe, you've gotta try, to forget yesterday's sadness, just forget it, leave it behind you...
