She always followed the rules
Behaved like a rock and made fun of the fools
She never let herself choose
To make any mistakes

She's a beautiful mess
She knows that her life is blessed
Aching nevertheless
For all those lost yesterdays

There’s a pull and there’s a push
Too slow then a fevered rush
Not enough or too much
Should she go or should she stay

She let go of his hand
She fell down like a kite without wind
Wallowing in the land
Of all those lost yesterdays

Its never the time or the place
She's all grown up and puts on a brave face
The old her never escaped
It's hidden away beneath layers of paint

What good is youth anyway
How old is too old to play
She still gets carried away
In all those lost yesterdays

Life's a beautiful mess
Sometimes smooth sometimes restless
Aching nevertheless
For all those lost yesterdays
