That Was Yesterday  Foreigner

From the Album-"Agent Provocateur"
Written by Mick Jones/Lou Gramm
Intro: (Twice)
[G#m] [E] [B] [F#]  

[G#m]I thought I kn[E]ew you well
But [B]all this time I could n[F#]ever tell
[G#m]I let you g[E]et away haunts me [B]every night & [F#]every day
[G#m]You were the [E]only one the [B]only friend I c[F#]ounted on
[G#m]How could I watch you w[E]alk away
I'd give [B]anything to have you h[F#]ere today
But [Bbm]now I stand al[Gb]one with my pr[Db]ide [Ab] and d[Bbm]ream
That you're s[Gb]till by my s[Db]ide [Ab] but that was
[Ebm]Yesterday I had the world in my h[Gb]ands
But it's not the [Db]end of my world
Just a slight change of p[Ebm]lans
That was yesterday but today life g[Bbm]oes on
No more hiding in y[Db]esterday cause yesterday's gone
[G#m]Love my love I g[E]ave it all
Thought I s[B]aw the light when I h[F#]eard you call
[G#m]Life that we b[E]oth could share
Has des[B]erted me left me [F#]in despair
But [Bbm]now I stand al[Gb]one with my pr[Db]ide [Ab] fighting back
The t[Bbm]ears I never l[Gb]et myself c[Db]ry [Ab] but that was
Y[Ebm]esterday love was torn from my h[Gb]ands
But it's not the [Db]end of my world
Just a little hard to [Ebm]understand
That was yesterday but today life [Bbm]goes on
You won't find me in y[Db]esterday's world
Now yesterday's g[Ebm]one
Goodbye yesterday now it's over and [Bbm]done
Still I hope somewhere d[Db]eep in your heart
[F#] [G#m] [E]  
 Yesterday will live on E----------------12-|
