I wish today was yesterday
when everything was as smooth as silk
and the thought of tomorrow was so bright
it blinded any darkness that tried to fill my day
and i was no longer sad

i wish today was yesterday
when he loved me
because when he loved me
i felt brand new
like a shirt with the tags still on
still in the bag
waiting to be worn for that special occasion 
that would one day come
but today is not yesterday
today is the day after yesterday
the day when all hell broke loose
and the thoughts that were established yesterday
fluttered away like a leaves in the wind

i wish today was yesterday
when i was free to think the best of eveything
and everyone
unlike today
when i found out that those i loved and trusted
were not to be trusted at all
but damn if i don't still love them
ain't that a bitch?
i wish today was a million yesterday's ago
because if i knew what i knew now
i would have stopped today from happening
and today would be like yesterday minus a few memories
happy and free
