My first love happened when I was a college student. I was very naïve and very grateful for those first few lessons in all the good things.


Long ago, far away,
There's a place called yesterday.
And when I go, with what I know,
I wish, I wish, that I could stay.
So many things I thought were right
I see now in a different light.
So long ago, so far away,
In a place called yesterday.

You were here, you were now,
You were "yes!" and I was "how?"
You were teach and I was learn,
You were fire and I was burn.
Poems that I tried to write,
Hunger for you every night.
So long ago, so far away,
In a place called yesterday.

Long ago, far away,
Yesterday, yesterday.

Love was new, love was fine,
I held you close and I called you mine.
And when you moved you moved for me
And every move was ecstasy.
But when you moved for someone new,
I couldn't lose my love for you,
So long ago so far away
In a place called yesterday.

But time the healer always mends,
I'm sure you've heard from our old friends,
I've settled down and I'm doing well,
A house, a car, and things I sell.
But still I wonder, do you care,
For those few days we had to share?
So long ago, so far away,
In a place called yesterday.
