(Brad Mates/Greg Barnhill)

She was the love of my life, back in '95
We hardly spent a day and night apart
We were victims of a lonely heart
I remember that day, it all went away
When I think about it even now
I find a reason to smile, somehow

Chorus:
'Cause I've still got yesterday, running wild, yesterday
When I close my eyes I drift away
Back where I come from
Today may not be fair and tomorrow may not be there
But I've still got yesterday

Zack was the one to hang around
We used to drive through town
With all the girls in his daddy's car
Said he was going to be a big league star
But it was raining one night and he didn't see the red light
Now there's a stone where he used to be
And everybody cries but me

(Repeat chorus)

I've heard people say
You learn the future by the past
If it's any indication then I'm looking back

Chorus 2:
'Cause I've still got yesterday, running wild, yesterday
When I close my eyes I drift away
Back where I come from
Yesterday, when we had our dreams, yesterday, loud and free
I steal away and find that summer sun
Today may not be fair and tomorrow may not be there
But I've still got yesterday
