Liner Notes: 

I had to drive a few hours to where i used to live. ( so only lyrics for a while). This lyric came to me complete in the car, had to write it down as soon as i stopped, thought the best way to remember it was to post it! I even heard the talky style and the mmmmms in my head. Be nice for someone to have a go at this!


Yesterdays news

V1 Hey Jim i said
Not sure whats the game
Been round here before
But nothings now the same

V2 Everything seems different
To how it was before
I was pretty sure
That i used to know the score

C Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

V3 So how longs it been
Seems only like yesterday
I cant believe its been 5 years
To the very day

V4 Well of course i didnt want to leave
Wasnt my idea
When they put me in the van
Even I was full of fear

Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

B Like a fish out of water
Like a hammer without a nail
Like a surfacing Tapir
Waiting to exhale

C Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm

They used to know my name round here
The rich and the poor
But i’m now yesterdays news
They don’t know me anymore

(Spoken) Things may change

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I like how it starts kinda innocently then goes darker pretty quick. And to be honest, I had to google Tapir. I sent you a demo.
