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

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 =)

Not enough people are pointing out how genius and well executed the video is.

DaveDexterMusic

we don't need to point something out to be aware of it. we can just enjoy it quietly. otherwise we sound like you; someone who implies that they've noticed something good us other morlocks wouldn't understand

Angelique Boulerice

Well they should be by golly!

Chris Burns

I agree dude..

Beatrice

It’s repeated history/cycle different times different people. Evolution

Yeah, just noticed little details with the band on about my 10th viewing of this video:
1st lap - POS drum kit and backing track
2nd lap - guitarist playing a cheapo Squire Bullet Strat (but at least there's a guitarist!)
3rd lap - Ludwig drum kit and bassist has a Fender USA Precision top-of-the-line instrument.

Perfect video. Perfect hook. Perfect mix. Only problem Tame Impala have are making albums quick enough for us all to devour & obsess over them.
