No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you drown
You've traveled very far
Just to see if I'll come around
When I'm down

All of those yesterdays
Coming down

No matter where you are
I can still hear you when you dream
You traveled very far
You traveled far, like a star
And you are

All of those yesterdays
Coming down

Is it something someone said?
Was it something someone said?

Yesterday the sky was you
And I still feel the same
Nothing left for me to do
And I still feel the same

I wish, I wish I could fly
I wish, I wish I could lie
I will, I will try
I will, I will

    General Commentit's about losing the person who's perfect for you, because you're not really perfect for them... that cruel twist of fate when you break up with the person who you know you'll always love and always think about...

    My OpinionI always feel a tinge of sadness after hearing the "I wish, I wish I could lie" part.

    General CommentI love the Smashing Pumpkins, and this song has a lot of meaning to me. To me, this song is about a guy who has a lot of feelings for a girl that broke up with him. He's trying to get over her, but he can't. He feels like his place in her life is to protect her and since he isn't a part of her life anymore, he has to stay from a far and watch her as she is in distress. Not only that, but memories of the "good times" also come to him.
    Great song, Great band.

    General CommentI had this song on a mix tape somewhere, for so long, I'd randomly recorded it off the radio one day, and I never knew what it was, nor did anyone else, I asked everyone I knew, nobody knew,

    THANK YOU!!!
