Lost in Yesterday
Tame Impala Lyrics


When we were livin' in squalor, wasn't it heaven?
Back when we used to get on it four out of seven
Now even though that was a time I hated from day one
Eventually terrible memories turn into great ones

So if they call you
Embrace them
If they hold you
Erase them

'Cause it might've been something, who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you might've missed something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been diggin' it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might've been something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday

Matty said life didn't go the way that he planned it
Said, "Oh, what I'd give to start over, boy I'd command it"
So what was I ever afraid of? Why did I worry?
And why was I ever so brainless? Head in a flurry

'Cause they call you
Embrace them
If they stall you
Erase them

'Cause it might've been something, who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you might've missed something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been pickin' it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might've been something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday

If it calls you
Embrace it
If it haunts you
Face it

I know it's mad, I understand
It's only snakes and ladders
The period you never had
There's only one that matters

And if it calls you
Embrace it
If it holds you
Erase it
Erase it

0:05 - lvl 1 party. basic food, basic drinks, cheap Tesco cake, hardly any people and everyone is not okay.

1:05 - lvl 2 party. nicer food, better drinks, cake had more thought put into it, fancier clothing, few more people (+1 band member), old guy gains ability to dance, phone lady not crying and everything is enough to have a good time.

2:03 - lvl 3 party. food and table look amazing, fancy glasses to house expensive drinks, 3 tier cake +bonus flowery arc, everyone wearing better quality suits and dresses, way more people, chad at the bar pulled, band have fancy clothes (+ 2 more band members), stage improvement, phone lady is cheerful and everyone is having a great time.

3:04 - lvl 4 party (max). exquisite food and drink, 4 tier cake +arc upgraded to pillars, high end suits and dresses, maxed out people, bar guy proposal, everyone dancing like there's no tomorrow, band stage and clothing quality huge improvement, everyone's having the time of their li.....

Lyrics
When we were living in squalor,
Wasn't it heaven?
Back when we used to get on it
Four outta seven

Now even though that was a time I
Hated from day one
Eventually, terrible memories
Turn into great ones

So if they call you
Embrace them
If they hold you
Erase them

'Cause it might have been something, who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you mighta missed something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been digging it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might have been something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday

Matty said life didn't go the
Way that he planned it
Said, "Oh, what I'd give to start over
Boy, I'd command it"

So what was I ever afraid of,
Why did I worry?
And why was I ever so brainless?
Head in a flurry

'Cause if they call you
Embrace them
If they stall you
Erase them

'Cause it might have been something, who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you mighta missed something, don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been digging it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might have been something, don't say
'Cause it has to stay lost in yesterday

So if it calls you
Embrace it
If it haunts you
Face it

I know it's mad
I understand
It's only snakes
And ladders
The period
You never had
There's only one
That matters

And if it calls you
Embrace it
If it holds you
Erase it (replace it)


Thnx for the likes =)

When we were livin' in squalor, wasn't it heaven?
Back when we used to get on it four out of seven
Now even though that was a time I hated from day one
Eventually, terrible memories turn into great ones

So if they call you, embrace them
If they hold you, erase them

'Cause it might've been somethin', who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you might've missed somethin', don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been pickin' it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might've been somethin', don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday


Why is it life didn't go the way that he planned it?
Said: Oh, what I'd give to start over; boy, I demand it
So, what was I ever afraid of? Why did I worry?
And why was I ever so brainless? Head in a flurry

'Cause if they call you, embrace them
If they stall you, erase them

'Cause it might've been somethin', who's to say?
Does it help to get lost in yesterday?
And you might've missed somethin', don't say
'Cause it has to be lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been pickin' it up like Groundhog Day
'Cause it might've been somethin', don't say

If it calls you, embrace it
If it haunts you, face it


I know it's mad, I understand
It's only Snakes and Ladders
The period you never had
There's only one that matters

And if it calls you, embrace it
If it holds you, erase it
Replace

When we were living in squalor, wasn't it heaven
Back when we used to get on it, four out of seven
Now we know this was a time I hated from day one
Eventually terrible memories turn into great ones
So if they call you, embrace them
If they hold you, erase them
Cause it might have been something used to say
Does it help to get lost in yesterday
And you might have missed something, don't say
Cause it hurts to get lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been digging it up like groundhog day
Cause it might have been something, don't say
Cause it hurts to be lost in yesterday
Matty said life didn't go the way that he planned it
Said "oh what I'd give to start over, boy I could manage"
So what was I ever afraid of, why did I worry
Why was I ever so brainless, head in a flurry
If they call you, embrace them
If they stall you, erase them
Cause it might have been something used to say
Does it help to get lost in yesterday
And you might have missed something, don't say
Cause it hurts to get lost in yesterday
And you're gonna have to let it go someday
You've been digging it up like groundhog day
Cause it might have been something, don't say
Cause it hurts to be lost in yesterday
If it calls you, embrace it
If it haunts you, face it
I know it's mad, I understand
It's all just snakes and ladders
The myriad, you never had
There's only one that matters
If it calls you, embrace it
If it haunts you, face it

@Emre Kazan Let's say you ask a girl for lunch for the purpose of telling her you have feelings for her, but she rejects you and that makes you sad. Time moves on and you have two options.




1: remember the moment fondly, she was so beatiful that day and you can't help to smile everytime you think of her and how lucky you were to meet her. Embrace the memory,





2: this moment affects you more than it should, you don't even try to ask more girls out because you are afraid of getting hurt. You really need to forget about it and move on.




I hope it helps
