Yesterday – everything just seemed so dark and gray
Now my troubles all have flown away
And I’m released from Yesterday
Suddenly – the veil was lifted, and I now can see
I am not the one I thought was me
Now Yesterday has set me free
Why we have to go through that stage, I couldn’t say
Ask a butterfly does she sigh for Yesterday
Yesterday – life was filled with childish games we play
And idols all with crumbling feet of clay
Now I’m released from Yesterday

This is not a “righted” song. My version, above, I see as a sequel, and I want to express my gratitude to Sir Paul McCartney for, not only one of the most beautiful songs ever written, but also for the honesty and spiritual insight in his classic song, Yesterday.
