I see the face of yesterdays child
Living in a state of in between
Is there a place for yesterdays child
Searching for an unforgotten dream?

Looking for rainbows at midnight
Hoping tomorrow will come
Will time erase for yesterdays child?
What will the child become?

I hear the voice of yesterdays child
Echoing my name, my name, my name
Is there a choice for yesterdays child
Seeking shelter from the falling rain?

Chasing a butterfly lover
Making a run for the sun
Who will rejoice for yesterdays child?
What is the game to be won?

Will you draw?
Will you fold?
Will you start playing wild?
What is the future for yesterdays child?

Will you turn to dust
Or go to the sea, racing with destiny?
Oh,look at me
Born to be yesterdays child
