After long enough for being alone
Everyone must face their share of loneliness
In my own time nobody knew
The pain I was going through
And waiting was all my heart could do

Hope was all I had until you came
Maybe you can see how much you mean to me
You were the dawn breaking the night
The promise of morning light
And filling the world surrounding me

When I hold you, baby, baby
Feels like maybe things will be all right
Baby, baby, your loves maybe free as a song
Singing for ever

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past
And all the tears behind me
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away only yesterday

I've found my home here in your arms
Nowhere else on earth I'd really rather be
Life waits for us to share it with me
The best is about to be
And so much is left for us to see

When I hold you, baby, baby
Feels like maybe things will be all right
Baby, baby, your loves maybe free as a song
Singing for ever

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past
And all the tears behind me
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away only yesterday

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past
And all the tears behind me
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away only yesterday
