(Richard Carpenter, John Bettis)
Produced by Richard Carpenter


After long enough of being alone,
Everyone must face their share of loneliness.
In my own time nobody knew,
The pain I was going through,
Waitin' was all my heart could do.

Hope was all I had until you came,
Maybe you can see how much you mean to me.
You were the dawn breaking the night,
The promise of morning light,
Filling the world surrounding me.

When I hold you
Baby, baby
Feels like maybe
Things will be alright
Baby, baby
you're love's made me
Free as a song,
singing forever.

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past and all its tears behind me
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away
Only yesterday.

(instrumental)

I have found my home here in your arms,
Nowhere else on earth I'd really rather be.
Life waits for us, share it with me,
The best is about to be,
And so much is left for us to see.


When I hold you
Baby, baby
feels like maybe
Things will be alright
Baby, baby
you're love's made me
Free as a song,
singing forever.

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past and all its tears behind me
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away
Only yesterday.

Only yesterday when I was sad and I was lonely
You showed me the way to leave the past and all its tears behind me
Tomorrow may be even brighter than today
Since I threw my sadness away
Only yesterday.
