Yesterday is a wrinkle on your forehead
Yesterday is a promise that you've broken
Don't close your eyes, don't close your eyes,
This is your life

And today is all you've got now
And today is all you'll ever have
Don't close your eyes.

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, is it everything you've dreamed
That it would be when the world was younger,
And you had everything to lose?

Yesterday is a kid in the corner
Yesterday is dead and over

This is your life, are you who you want to be
This is your life, are you who you want to be

    General CommentIThis is a nice meangful song. It is melancholy-but upbeat too. This song asks you if you are happy with your life right now, is it everything you thought it would be? Has life lived up to your expectations or let you down? This song points ou that whatever you have today good or bad, it's all you have. You cannot have the future before it comes.You can live in the past if you want to, but you cannot have the past either. The past as this song says is dead and over. Some people think there is something wrong with living in the past. True, it's not a good thing to do, but sometimes it's your only relief when all you have is an emptiness because of things you have lost. I think you ought to live in the past sometimes and I think you should cherish and remember the past always. I have lived in the past before and will again. It is very comforting, although it is a dead end. I first heard this song on a snowy winter day against the background of snowy farm fields and huge cemtery. Not quite the atomsphere to cheer you up.This song is really haunting.
