Yesterday

Happy, clinging,
Jumping, screaming;
Living, dreaming,
Hoping, scheming…

If you like,
We could be a tribe.
If you want,
You could take a bribe.

Lonely, sinning,
Losing, winning;
Sometimes the cookie
Crumbles softly…

Sometimes there’s
No silver lining.
Sometimes the dice
Roll my way.

If only, if only…

If only there was
One more day.
If only I had
One more dollar.

Can you hear me holler
From the end of this
Rainbow?
No pot of gold here!

An angel face
Is just around
The corner store
In Santa town.

A bride is waiting
In the wings
For that day
You’ve been waiting for.

Holy oaths
Will be sworn
Today, but
Yesterday

Was a different story…

If only you knew.
