"Yesterday Went Too Soon" as written by Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose and Jon Lee....
Sitting in today
Watching traffic buzzing by
And faces closing in
A victim of regret
It glitters and it fades away
Like silver turning grey
Washed it all away
Waiting for this dream to end
Before it sucks me in

I'm climbing high
Up above the streets and rows of neon lights
I'm holding out my hand but I'm alone

Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday

Crashing on the ground
The silence seems to suffocate
And bury me again
Waiting for a taste
Of happiness to lift me free
And carry me away

I'm climbing high
Up above the streets and rows of neon lights
I know it's just a dream but I'm alive

Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday
I'm still missing yesterday

I'll wait, I'll wait for you tonight.

Lost another week
Feeling like a leper in
A world of vanity
It's killing me today
Addiction pulls you down, you know
And she's the drug I need

Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday

Wish I could show you
Wish you could see through my eyes
Tomorrow shines through
But I'm missing yesterday

    General Commentabout the actual meaning- about the past being great, and how you wish it still was there, but the future is coming round the corner and it doesn't look too good. reminds me a little of we can't rewind and also the other feeder lyric "the futures knocking at my door"
