Yesterday's Girl

You told her lies as her starry eyes
Looked up in admiration
You painted scenes and lovely dreams
With all your temptation
You spoke of things like wedding rings
And promised her the world
For no cause at all you let her fall
And now she's yesterday's girl

You think it's smart to lure the heart
Of a girl whose lips you kissed
Is it just a game to add her name
To your broken hearted list
You've loved some long you've loved some wrong
And promised each the world
And each came to be just a memory
And another yesterday's girl

Don't you sometimes feel that love is real
The greatest thing in life
Not one romance you gave the chance
To be your cherished wife
You cheat and lie you make them cry
And promise each the world
And one by one they've each become
Another yesterday's girl

When autumn falls and you recall
The things that might have been
Then you'll pause and see you cause
The grief that's deep within
When you're old and love grows cold
I bet you'd give the world
To just relive to take and give
The love of a yesterday's girl
