​Yesterday

This song is by Atmosphere and appears on the album When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (2008).

I thought I saw you yesterday but I didn't stop
'Cause you was walkin' the opposite way
I guess I coulda' shouted out your name
But even if it was you I don't know what I would say

We could sit and reminisce about the old school
Maybe share a cigarette 'cause we're both fools
Chop it up and compare perspectives
Life, love, stress, and setbacks, yes

You could tell me how hard you had it
And you can show me all the scars to back it
And we can analyze each complaint
Break it down and explain these mistakes I make

I like to tangle up the strings of the puppetry
But you knew me back when I was a younger me
You've seen Sean in all types of light
And I've been meanin' to ask you if I'm doin' all right

Yesterday was that you? Looked just like you
Strange things my imagination might do
Take a breath, reflect on what we've been through
Or am I just goin' crazy 'cause I miss you?

I'm shook, I know. I pushed when I shoulda' pulled
Took it all back if I could, I put that on my soul
And I would make a top-notch good listener
If you could block off a little time to give it here

Since we went our separate paths
I've hit a couple of snags that remind me of the past
I can't front, I'm having a blast
But damned if I ain't afraid of how long it's gonna last

Sittin' here wishin' we could kick it
Givin' me your opinions. I do miss the criticisms
I didn't mean to be distant. Make a visit
I wait up and keep the coffee brewin' in the kitchen

But who am I jokin' with?
There's no way that you and I will ever get to re-open it
It doesn't matter this is more than love
And maybe if I'm lucky get to see you out the corner of

Yesterday was that you? Looked just like you
Strange things my imagination might do
Take a breath, reflect on what we've been through
Or am I just goin' crazy 'cause I miss you?

And when you left I didn't see it coming
I guess I slept. It ain't like you was runnin'
You crept out the front door slow
And I was so self absorbed I didn't even know

And by the time I looked up it was booked up
Put it all behind you the bad and the good stuff
A whole house full of dreams and steps
I think you'd be impressed with the pieces I kept

You disappeared but the history is still here
That's why I try not to cry over spilled beer
I can't even get mad that you gone
Leavin' me was probably the best thing you ever taught me

I'm sorry
It's official
I was a fist-full
I didn't keep it simple
Chip on the shoulder. Anger in my veins
Has so much hatred now it brings me shame

Never thought about the world without you
And I promise that I'll never say another bad word about you
I thought I saw you yesterday
But I know it wasn't you because you passed away, Dad

Looked just like you
Strange things my imagination might do
Take a breath, reflect on what we've been through
Or am I just goin' crazy 'cause I miss you?
