Lyrics

A time that was yesterday

Written By: Mary Mac

‘A time that was yesterday’. Words and music by Mary Mac (Mary Leaver) © copyright

The trees are in the garden, the birds are in the trees
in the house of the man who went away

The coat is in the cupboard, there’s writing on the wall
In the house of the girl who lost her way

Everywhere you walk, everything you see
Paint distant pictures in your mind

The song is in the book the line is in the page
From a time that was yesterday

There’s pictures on the wall, photographs in the hall
In the house of the man who ran away

There’s dresses in the wardrobe, paper in a book
In the house of the girl who once played

All the people that you meet, conversations that you speak
Take you so very far away

The song is in the book the line is in the page from a time that was yesterday.

The house of the man

Written By: Mary Mac

The house of the man.

The trees are in the garden, the birds are in the trees
in the house of the man who went away

The coat is in the cupboard, there’s writing on the wall
In the house of the girl who lost her way

Everywhere you walk, everything you see
Paint distant pictures in your mind

The song is in the book the line is in the page
From a time that was yesterday

There’s pictures on the wall, photographs in the hall
In the house of the man who ran away

There’s dresses in the wardrobe, paper in a book
In the house of the girl who once played

All the people that you meet, conversations that you speak
Take you so very far away

The song is in the book the line is in the page from a time that was yesterday.
