When Yesterday comes calling,
I’ll close tight the door.
I’ll tell him I don’t need the feelings
that I had before.

When Yesterday comes calling
I won’t invite him in for tea.
I’ll stand there on the doorstep
and ask why he’s come for me.

When Yesterday comes calling
I’ll ask him if he’s new.
He’ll tell me that it will be different
I’ll say a change is overdue.

When Yesterday comes calling
I think I’ll change my mind.
My heart and head will soften
I’ll accept him one more time.

When Yesterday comes calling-
and he will, I know that now
I’ll give him all my second chances
and know that then, I can be found.
