Yesterday Is Here
Tom Waits Lyrics


If you want money in your pocket
And a top hat on your head
A hot meal on your table
And a blanket on your bed

Well today is grey skies
Tomorrow is tears
You'll have to wait til yesterday is here

Well, I'm going to New York City
And I'm leaving on a train
And if you want to stay behind
And wait til I come back again

Today's grey skies
Tomorrow is tears
You'll have to wait til yesterday's here

If you want to go
Where rainbows end
You'll have to say goodbye
All our dreams come true, baby up ahead
And it's out where your memories lie

Well, the road is out before me
And the moon is shining bright
What I want you to remember as I disappear tonight

Well, today's grey skies
Tomorrow's tears
You'll have to wait til yesterday is here

Well, today's grey skies
Tomorrow's tears
You'll have to wait til yesterday's here
You'll have to wait til yesterday's here
You'll have to wait til yesterday's here

...If you want to go
where the rainbows end
you'll have to say goodbye
all our dreams come true
baby up ahead
and it's out where your memories lie
well the road's out before me
and the moon is shining bright
what I want you to remember
as I disappear tonight
today is grey skies
tomorrow's tears
you'll have to wait til yesterday is here.

Wooo 8 years later I can read my drunken replies to comments that don't even exist anymore!

Today is grey skies, tomorrow is tears, you'll have to wait 'til yesterday is here...

For me this is the ultimate song. It can be interpreted in many ways, but I hope it will be played at my funeral, because this song has stayed with me for decades and it almost always brings a tear to
my eyes.

Today is grey skies, tomorrow is tears. You'll have to wait til yesterday is here.

Has anyone noticed that the melody is lifted from the movie Hang em High with Clint Eastwood. Fantastic. Makes the song even better.

@Kweog Og It was all pretty much one song, more or less. To me, this song is the distillation of them all.
