This is the song I dreamed I was helping John Lennon record.
Can we go back where we were tomorrow yesterday?
I wasn't finished wandering, there wasn't time to play
You say there's lots of work to do
And lots of bills to pay
We'll be back again someday
Can I have my feelings back tomorrow yesterday?
I really wasn't happy when you took them all away
I don't know where you've taken them
I really couldn't say
They'll be back again someday
Can I have my memories back tomorrow yesterday?
I need to understand the depth of my naiveté
And after all the things I'm looking through,
You want them right away
I'll have to make it up someday
The words I cross out and the words I keep'll
be my only chance to work out how to say
I barely can imagine all the people
Living for today.
Can we have the future back tomorrow yesterday?
I wasn't finished dreaming of a place where I could stay
You say that dreams are pointless,
So I've nothing more to say
I'll be back again someday
- 2013-08-08 (morning) Had the dream about this song; wrote down the bits I could remember.
- 2015-01-26 Verses pretty much finished.
- 2016-12-08 Came up with the instrumental refrain (A, Gb, Bm, E) and a better bridge (I think).
- 2017-08-05 Really not happy with lyrics to bridge so far. Maybe this is better, finally?
