Patti Scialfa — Yesterday's Child lyrics

Anna in a foreign blue
Yesterday I saw someone
Who reminded me of you
And I
Held my breath and called your name
And though I knew it was not you
I followed just the same
I wanted to raise the glass
To a symphony of miles
And say our last farewell
To yesterdays child
Anna sweep the doorway clean
Lets forgive before we blame
And I
Will make my own amends
With the dust and sin
Underneath my skin
And on my maiden name
So lets raise the glass
To a symphony of miles
And say our last farewell
To yesterdays child
Anna in my dreams
I open my arms and I'm flying
Lets do some living
Forget about the dying
Anna I've done my thousand days
Now I'm walking free in time
And I still have my imaginings
Where there's no struggling
Or suffering
Just cigarettes and wine
So lets raise the glass
To a symphony of miles
And say our last farewell
To yesterdays child
