Was It Yesterday


Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 40th year?

Was it yesterday we danced a waltz

A stranger and myself

To mariachi music

While drunks puked outside

Downstairs

Green grass

Green carpet

I sang and played guitar

Yesterday

Yes it was yesterday alone

No one noticed me at all

Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 30th year?

Leaving love forever for the sake of love

Broken

Still alone

Life is like the Barrancas

Where she dies

Where he goes on alone

Where the keys tangle

The notes clash

Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the 20th year?

So sure of my future

Knowing every story I would live

Certain of the years

Ungrateful for my meagre gifts

Yet bold

Fearless

Alone

Was it yesterday I lit a candal on the tenth year?

Angry

Disassociated

Withdrawn from a world that made no sense

Crying for everything lost

Not knowing

How much more would fall

From the tree of my life

Until leaves barely cling now

Was it just a moment ago I lit a candal on the 50th year?

Amazed I still exist

Looking forwards to such small dreams

Like lighting a candal for the next year

That will occur in less than a moment.
