Yesterday has gone forever And its raining all over the world And true love will kill you in the end But sometimes dreams can descend And everyday has gone forever And every second second one life ends But you and me we just keep rolling along With a little help from our friends Yesterday has gone forever Do you remember last year’s summer sun When we we flew in the butterfly field Then I waited for you by the door And we got high by the back wheel Yesterday has gone forever Yesterday has gone forever Yesterday has gone And there goes another one

As the gas station burns Let’s take it in turns A love that burns so strong Cannot be wrong As the eagle flies I got fumes in my eyes I’m not taking the blame When it all goes up in flames I’ll be yr mechanic Sugar tank sugar fuel There is no way to avoid Low self-esteem destroyed I was brought to this world to learn Now I must return I’ll be yr mechanic Sugar tank sugar fuel As the gas station burns Let’s take it in turns I’m not taking the blame When it all goes up in flames

Yeah she is some girl She’s always on my mind I can hear her coming Coming down the line She’s always coming I really don’t mind Because she is closer now than I’ve ever been And that’s just fine Yeah she is just some girl I wanna make her mine I can hear her humming Along with every line She’s always running I guess I’ll take my time Because she is closer now than I’ve ever And that’s just fine Yeah she is some girl She’s my devoted friend But the end denies the beginning The start deceives the end And the world keeps spinning Sometimes it seems like it never ends And she is closer now than I’ve ever And that’s just fine

Don’t be a stranger I’m in love with your moves If I could make a wish I want you right now Desolate angel Stay away from the fools The others let me down I want you right now She live in a slow motion store I don’t see the light the light any more Could this be over I’m carving her name in the sand Don’t know when I’ll come in to land Endless summer I carry you with me In the back of my mind You room there all the time I want you right now She live in a slow motion store I don’t see the light the light any more Could this be over I’m carving her name in the sand Don’t know when I’ll come in to land Endless summer Don’t be a stranger I’m in love with your moves If I could make a wish I want you right now
