A new lyric

YESTERDAY’S EYES

There’s a story to be told

Of dark and dust

But the story keeps on changing

As all stories must

History we know is part truth and part lies

And I’m seeing it all

Through yesterday’s eyes

There’s a hero growing old

With nowhere to go

No battles to fight

No bravery to show

There are things that we know and things we surmise

And I’m seeing it all

Through yesterday’s eyes

There are people we trust

And those who we don’t

Things that we’ll do

And things that we won’t

We all know the dreams the daylight denies

And I’m seeing it all

Through yesterday’s eyes

You can ride the waves of sorrow

Chase glory as it flies

But you can only see tomorrow

Through yesterday’s eyes

There are no signs pointing

The way out of here

The paths to the exit

Are all cloaked in fear

Some things we take for granted the rest we improvise

And I’m seeing it all

Through yesterday’s eyes
