about

Haunting yet hopeful, "You Were You" is a ukulele-fronted alternative folk song that searches for perspective through painful truths.

lyrics

You were you yesterday
You were you
And it broke my heart
Through and through
I put up all defenses in my mind
Anytime I go to see you
I make sure their holding strong

But you were you yesterday
You were you
You were witty
You were charming
For a moment you were you
And I didn’t want to leave
No, I didn’t want to go
‘Cuz I never know who you will be
Next time I come around

(whistle)

The sadness that strikes
Even just thinking of you
Washes over like a dark cloud
Above that never moves
And I try to remember
The good times we all had
But the memories are distant
Broken and shattered

But you were you yesterday
You were you
I should hold onto the moment
A reminder of the truth
Now is all there is now
Now is all we have
Focus on the present
The past is in the past

When you were you
You were you
But now is all there is now
Now is all we have
And you are you now
You are you
And now is all there is now
Now is all we have
You are you now
You are you
And now is all there is now
Now is all we have
You are you
You are you
You are you
You are you
