Leaving Yesterday Behind

Patti Austin


Since you left me, I never really tried
To put my life at where it should belong
And I've always let the past come back
I'm realizing that it could be wrong

But now I fin'lly knew
I had to let it go
To make way for a brighter tomorrow

So now I'm leaving yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
To let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leaving yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
The way I did before

Since I know that I never will forget
The memories that made my yesterday
I will try not to let it interfere
The choices I will make along the way

'Cause I'm not livin' in a world of fantasy
I'm here now in the world of reality

So now I'm leaving yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
To let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leaving yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
The way I did before

I'm leaving yesterday behind
And fin'lly I've made up my mind
To let the mem'ries stay away
And think about today
I'm leavin' yesterday behind
'Cause now I'll try to live my life once more
Just the way I did before
