It's another way to get through the day
Picking up ripped cigarette boxes
Hoping that one remains
Yellow lucky day suck deep and bathe
For the next ten minutes spent coughing
All the pleasures craved
Write down all the things that
You'd like to say
Write down all the things that
You'd like to change
Write down all the places you'd
Like to stay
Write down anything that you want
Is yesterday, tomorrow, today?
Is nothin' gonna change the way
Cracked rock top wall let the ash to fall
Left alone to wait I've never looked at things
I've liked only things I hate
You're not the first today
Not the softest face
Was there any that you liked
Was there any that you didn't fake?
Write down all the things
That you'd like to be
Write down all the things
That you don't believe
Write down all the places you'd like to see
Write down anything that you want
Is yesterday, tomorrow, today?
Is nothing gonna change the way?
Because everything that's you
And the things that you like to do
And all of the things that are
Come back again
Is yesterday, tomorrow, today?

    General CommentThis is also one of my favourite phonics song!!!
    I even once preached a sermon using it. Taliking about regrets and not having 'yesterday' again... a good point...

    General CommentTop 3 on the album IMO. Song is about what you could have changed if you could turn back time.

    General CommentThe title is apparently from something Kelly heard a little boy ask his mum, I think perhaps when he was in a waiting room, and it got him thinking. In Kelly's words "Its not what the songs about, but I thought it was cool'. Having spent a lot of time thinking about chronology, the title is surely a misnomer tho. Not wanting to pick holes, but surely it should be correctly titled 'Is Today Tomorrow Yesterday?'

    General CommentPossibly the weakest on the album. I still love it but i think it and minute longer could have been cut.
