that was yesterday lyrics – foreigner

i
thought i knew you well
but all this time
i could never tell
i
let you get away
haunts me every night and every day
you
were the only one
the only friend that i counted on
how
could i watch you walk away?
i’d give anything to have you here today
but now
i stand alone with my pride
and dream
that you’re still by my side

but that was yesterday
i had the world in my hands
but it’s not the end of my world
it’s just a slight change of plans
that was yesterday
but today life goes on
no more hiding in yesterday
’cause yesterday’s gone
ooh…

love
my love i gave it all
thought i saw the light
when i heard you call
life
that we both could share
has deserted me
left me in despair
but now
i stand alone with my pride
fighting back the tears
i never let myself cry
but that was yesterday
love was took from my hands
but it’s not the end of my world
it’s just a little hard to understand
that was yesterday
but today life goes on
you won’t find me in yesterday’s world
now yesterday’s gone
goodbye yesterday
now it’s over and done
still i hope somewhere deep in your heart
yesterday will live on
ooh…
