"Yesterday Has Gone" (Cupid's Inspiration)

  • A little too much Cyreniac influence here, but an Epicurean can compensate for that. Just think of this as a version of Horace's "Carpe Diem":




    (too much intro; start at 18 seconds point)

    Yesterday has just departed

    Yet tomorrow hasn't started

    All that really matters

    Is right now

    And you should

    Live a lifetime

    In each minute

    Take the sweetness

    From within it

    Yesterday has gone

    Without a sound



    Come on, baby,

    Let the good times roll

    Time is wasting

    And we'll soon be old



    Just give in

    To what you feel inside

    Give your life a chance

    To open wide



    (Hey baby)

    Yesterday has just departed

    Yet tomorrow hasn't started

    All that really matters

    Is right now

    And you should

    Live a lifetime

    In each minute

    Take the sweetness

    From within it

    Listen to me

    Yesterday has gone

    Without a sound



    What's the good

    Of living in the past

    Look around you

    Things are changing fast



    Don't concern yourself

    With what's ahead

    It's too late to live

    When you are dead



    (Hey baby)

    We gotta live for today

    No time to live for tomorrow

    No time for tears of sorrow

    We gotta live right now

    We gotta live right now

    Listen to me --

    Yesterday is gone

    It's never gonna come back again

    A laugh's gotta last forever

    No time for the tears or the pain

    Dreams are there for the making

    Hopes are there for the taking

    Gonna get it together

    And face stormy weather

    Baby, baby, take hold of the moment



    Yesterday has just departed

    Yet tomorrow hasn't started

    All that really matters

    Is right now

    And you should

    Live a lifetime

    In each minute

    Take the sweetness

    From within it

    Yesterday has gone

    Without a sound
