Yesterday's News

This song is by Wayne Watson and appears on the album The Fine Line (1988).

Yesterday's news said people were dying
Down in Africa
Burned in the afternoon sun
Too little to eat
Armies of "saviors" ran to the rescue
While the world looked on
To help while the cameras were rolling
Then sound the retreat
Oh, yesterday's news
Oh, yesterday's news

Yesterday's news said thousands of children
Would surely die
The refuse of a love gone wrong
Love put to the test
Angry disciples now have grown silent
I, the worst of all
My passion for righteousness
Joins the children at rest
Like yesterday's news
Oh, yesterday's news

But today under the weight of the world
Only so much attention to go 'round
And yesterday's tears like morning dew
Have burned away
But unto the least of these
He said "You've done it to Me"
Oh, yesterday's news come back
Break my heart today

Yesterday's news said the King of the Jews
Met a cruel fate
Nailed to a tree over love
That's what I've heard
I can't shake that vision
Innocence bleeding in my place
Oh, yesterday, today and forever
Always the same
Always the same
Yesterday's news

Just yesterday
Can't stop thinking about
Yesterday's news
Can't shake that vision of it
Can't stop thinking 'bout
Yesterday's new, oh...
Can't stop yesterday's
Going round and round in my head
Can't stop thinking about it
Can't shake the vision of
Yesterday's news, oh...
Yesterday's news
