We can't bring back yesterday

when things were going swell

We have to make it through today

if it was a day of hell

Tomorrow may be a better one

I really and rightly don't know

But if Heaven's on the horizon

then it will surely show.

You thought that they'd live forever

they thought that they would too

As your placing flowers on their grave

it's all that you can do

Holding back tears as you say a prayer

memories come floating gently on the air

As you remember their love oh so dear

you feel a tingling touch as if they are near.

Somewhere out there a zillion miles away

yesteryear is sailing just past the Milky Way

Today is dawning with the rising of the sun

tomorrow will arrive when the night is done.

Out in the back yard with mom and dad

having the best time that we've ever had

Brothers and sisters playing side by side

having laughed so hard that we all cried.

Grandpa passed on then an uncle and aunt

please Lord, nobody else, no they just can't

Dad left us just the other day so very sad

and mom's in the hospital feeling real bad.

Somewhere out there a zillion miles away

yesteryear is sailing just past the Milky Way

Today is dawning with the rising of the sun

tomorrow will arrive when the night is done.

We can't bring back yesterday

when things were going swell

We have to make it through today

if it was a day of hell

Tomorrow may be a better one

I really and rightly don't know

But if Heaven's on the horizon

then it will surely show.

You thought that they'd live forever

they thought that they would too

As your placing flowers on their grave

it's all that you can do

Holding back tears as you say a prayer

memories come floating gently on the air

As you remember their love oh so dear

you feel a tingling touch as if they are near.

Somewhere out there a zillion miles away

yesteryear is sailing just past the Milky Way

Today is dawning with the rising of the sun

tomorrow will arrive when the night is done.
