Yesterday...


Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away,
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be,
There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday...

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go I don't know, she wouldn't say.
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday...

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday...


This is some late realization, I accept. But then, such an amazing, simple, beautiful, heart-wrenching song this is... by The Beatles. Something that would stay close to my heart and mind.

Hmm come join the club - Now Beatles, then Elayarajas (just in the afternoon I guess you figured out the beauty of 'Thendral Vandhu...')

Yeah. 'Thendral vandhu...' has got beautiful lyrics as well. It very beautifully captures the philosophy of life, vividness of colors, and the characters' love for each other. Here is a brief attempt at translation of the pallavi of the song
"I wonder...
What's the color in your heart
when the breeze brushes your skin?
What's the color in your thoughts
when you see the shine of the sky's akin?
As I experience the resurgence of colours' splendor
In my mind, I wonder...
How each of the thoughts have a different color.
Isn't it the truth my sweet love?"
