Back To Yesterday - LYRICS

You know I'll see you tomorrow
If I could I would today
I been in seclusion
toying with the illusion
That we could get, Back To Yesterday

Goodbye's don't always last forever
In the end it's hard to say
I was hoping you'd agree
it probably couldn't hurt
If we tried to get, Back To Yesterday

Back To Yesterday 2X
Baby what do you, Say
We try to get Back To Yesterday

You know it wasn't my decision
To leave your world behind
But when you fight the law
Sometimes you're gonna take a fall
And all you can do is wait for passing time

Back To Yesterday 2X
Baby what do you say
We try to get Back To Yesterday
We gotta get Back To Yesterday

Although I'll see you tomorrow
Girl I wonder if you're still the same
I been in seclusion, in a state of confusion
Wondering can we get Back To Yesterday

Back To Yesterday 2X
Baby what do you, say
We try to get Back To Yesterday
We gotta get Back To Yesterday
We gotta get Back To Yesterday
