Yo La Tengo - Today Is The Day Lyrics




I followed you...foolishly
You were at a smoky bar, you were out til three
Sat alone inside my car, it was nearly four
Couldn't wait for you all night
So I locked the door

I was gonna spend the night, coulda been okay
We were gonna talk all night, till I went away
Remember how you used to say, can't stay up late
A minute later we're older now, I can't stay awake
I'm driving by your parent's farm, in the Chevrolet
I remember that rusty car, like it was yesterday

Saw my brother driving by, the other day
I wished that i'd go out to him, but he drove away
Saw my sister standing there, standing in rain
Then I thought about nothing, that it feels the same

Another day, come and gone
Don't think I can ever sing that song
Little secrets we bring along
I'm taking my time, trailing behind, I thought of you
Today is the day I think of you

  1. mason miller

    I have a lot of favorite Yo La Tengo songs ... but they all have one thing in common --
    Georgia sings on all of them.

  2. Newdayrising 79

    One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, from one of the finest albums of all time. Yo La Tengo are a genuine musical treasure.

    Aishwarya Tiwari

    @Arushi Agarwal Right on. I was just playing with you both, guessing so that he must be a mutual friend to you both. Anyhoooo

    Aishwarya Tiwari

    @Arushi Agarwal just Googled him. Yes, I have watched Little Things. Season 2 was just immensely wholesome. I can't believe how inordinately dumb my mind can really get to not even recall Dhruv. *sighs*

    LYRICS I followed you foolishly
    You were at a smoky bar, you were out till three
    Sat alone inside my car, it was nearly four
    Couldn't wait for you all night
    So I broke the door

    I was going to spend the night, could have been okay
    We were going to talk all night till I went away

    Remember how you used to say, can't stay up late
    A minute later and we're older now, I can't stay awake
    I'm driving by your parent's farm, in the Chevrolet
    I remember that rusty car, like it was yesterday

    Saw my brother driving by the other day
    Wished that I'd go out to him, but he drove away
    Saw my sister standing there accepting blame
    Then I thought of how nothing ever feels the same

    Another day come and gone
    Don't think I can ever sing that song
    Little secrets we bring along
    I'm taking my time trailing behind
    I thought of you

    Another day come and gone
    Don't think I can ever sing that song
    Little secrets we bring along
    Today is the day, today is the day
    I think of you

    Another day come and gone
    Don't think I want to sing that song
    It's always trouble that makes you strong
    Today is the day, today is the day
    I think of you

  21. Michelle Torez
