Like Yesterday

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY TOMORROW'S A GUESS
YOU BELIEVE FREEDOM IS A HOLE IN YOUR CHEST
A LOVELESS LONESOME CAVITY

AN INVISIBLE SUMMER THAT FOLLOWED THE SPRING
WE WON ALL OUR BATTLES BUT THE WAR KEPT ITS STING
AND WHO'S LEFT TO CALL THE CAVALRY

AT 4 IN THE MORNING YOU SEE THROUGH A DAZZLING HAZE
TIME WILL MAKE FOOLS OF THESE WHISPERS AND HAIR-PULLING DAYS
EVEN AS YOU TAKE ME HOME STILL THE QUESTION REMAINS SO I SAY
DO YOU LOVE ME LIKE YESTERDAY

SOUTH OF GOOD MANNERS WE CRAWLED OUT THE SEA
STUDIED OUR SHADOWS STRETCHED LONG ACROSS THE BEACH
THROUGH CLOSED EYES SOME SIGHTS ARE BETTER SEEN

I TOOK OFF MY ARMOUR I LOWERED MY SHIELD
BLINDED MYSELF FINDING MOMENTS TO STEAL
THE TRUTH YOU CLING TO IS A FALLACY

AT 5 IN THE MORNING YOU HOPE ONLY MEMORIES REMAIN
FROM WHAT WE SAID YOU CAN TELL THAT THERE'S NOT MUCH TO SAVE
I HATE TO ASK TWICE AND I KNOW YOU HATE PET NAMES BUT BABY HEY
DO YOU LOVE ME LIKE YESTERDAY
