LHC: Featured Song ~ “Yesterday” by The Beatles


Throughout this month, we’re featuring certain Beatles songs that have a certain significance to our Book of the Month, The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg. The Beatles play a significant role in the novel, and were a big influence for Eulberg. Each of the songs we feature will be important to the novel.

Today, we’re featuring “Yesterday,” which is quoted on page 3 of The Lonely Hearts Club:

“Yesterday … Love was such an easy game to play …”

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.
Now it looks as though they’re here to stay.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly,
I’m not half the man I used to be,
There’s a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go
I don’t know she wouldn’t say.
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Why she had to go
I don’t know she wouldn’t say.
I said something wrong,
Now I long for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play.
Now I need a place to hide away.
Oh, I believe in yesterday.
Mm mm mm mm mm mm mm.
