After long enough of being alone
In my own time, nobody knew
And waitin' was all my heart could do
Hope was all I had until you came
You were the dawn breaking the night
Filling the world surroundin' me

Things will be all right
Free as a song, singin' forever
Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Only yesterday
I have found my home here in your arms
Life waits for us, share it with me
And so much is left for us to see

Things will be all right
Free as a song, singin' forever
Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
Tomorrow maybe even brighter than today
Only yesterday (only yesterday, only yesterday)
Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
