Yesterday, I made a promise,
And today it won’t come true.
Why does it always work this way,
When it comes to you!
I realize these things take time,
But my patience is at an end.
How can I fulfill the promise
When I never did begin?
Tides, they don’t procrastinate.
When the ebb is spent they flow.
The proffered words that left my mouth
Had but one way to go.
Please, won’t you forgive this fool,
He didn’t mean to lie?
Caught up in the yesterday
While time keeps creeping by.
