    "Return To Yesterday" Lyrics

    It was the day before the day before yesterday
    When we thought everything would now go our way
    We inherited a fortune of innocence
    And they took it all away

    We travel on the last bus from sanity
    Through province town to cities of obscurity
    And somewhere down the road it occurs to me
    That I might have missed my stop

    But I will not return to yesterday
    Or smooth out the human clay
    We'll face this new England like we always have

    In a fury of denial
    We'll go out dancing on the tiles
    Help me down, but don't take me back

    I heard a lover calling to Saint Anthony
    Sadly treating love like her property
    Only battles can be lost and so it seems we do
    But I'm hoping for a change

    I left you at the bus stop in working town
    Now the service has been cut re-named slumber down
    I can see you on the bars of your brother's bicycle
    Now I hope you're not alone

    And all the politician creeps
    I know they want them back
    And the couturier weeps
    She knows they won't come back

    And the lovers who seldom speak
    I know they want them back
    And me falling back into your half term kisses
    No I will not
