Its been so long since I had a smile
I've stayed sad for such a long while

If you can cheer me up
I could learn to love you

You kiss me now and I turn away
I think I'm still kissing yesterday

So love me, and cheer me up
Show me you're the one who can
make me happy
Cheer me up

I don't want to spend the rest of my days
dreaming yesterday's daydreams
Out with the bad and in with the good
You feel my heart girl, you're knocking on wood

So generous, I'm being kind
With selfishness in the back of my mind

Don't want to spend the rest of my days
giving yesterday's promises
No more giving my mind away
Tomorrow's love will be yesterday
Don't want to spend the rest of my days
living yesterday
Don't want to spend the rest of my days
singing yesterday's love songs

    General CommentCheer would have to be my favorite descendents song. Their such a great band.

    I think its about the singer who was previously in a relationship and she broke up with him. He's saying how depressed he was after it, and thinking he could never love again. obviously he was heartbroken and sort of scared of falling in love again. So he's met this new great girl who just has something has about her and he's saying if she could treat him right and make him happy and love him, he thinks he could love her back. when he's saying he doesnt want to be dreaming Yesterdays dreams, he's saying he was always thinking his ex, holding on to all them feelings. when she goes to kiss im he turns away coz he's scared of moving on.. but now he really does just wants to move forward because this new girl could be awesome =) he realises he needs to stop comparing yesterday with today.

    yeah that just what i get out of it personally.
    most of there songs are there songs are pretty straight forward haha.

    the Descendents are so relatable. love them =)
