Aura “Yesterday’s Love”

Since my interview with Toshi, whose label Cool Sound reissued an album by Aura, I’ve been meaning to post my own videos of Aura’s music… but why wait if someone else has one up?

Here’s an outstanding track about love lost, called “Yesterday’s Love”. It gives me chills to listen to! Her voice is so innocent, longing, and sad. Maybe it’s the lyrics that add that extra touch of sorrow? (BTW, I understand songs better when I write out the lyrics. Some lines might be wrong, though). Dig the funky bass lines, breakdown with hand claps, massive horns, and a *sparse* yet *bouncy* chorus. Know what I’m saying? Is it a perfect song? I think so!

I’ve been trying so hard to make you see
That loving me, baby, is just trying to set you free
I can’t understand the reason why
The certain change inside of you
That made you want to say goodbye

Yesterday’s Love, gone forever
Someone’s taking you away from me
(You know) I can’t forget the love we shared together
Baby stay, I’m still begging you, please

You had me believe in you
When you told me our love is true
You said I was the only one
Who keeps you from feeling blue
Now I realize all of your sorry lies
We were never gonna make it
All the while I played the fool

Yesterday’s Love, gone forever
Someone’s taking you away from me
(You know) I can’t forget the love we shared together
Baby stay, I’m still begging you, please

Yesterday’s Love, gone forever…

How can I forget the years we’ve been together?
Going through those changes, All the sacrifices I did
That hurt me deep inside, when you said it was over
The love we shared I can’t have when all you wanted was a friend

Yesterday’s Love, gone forever
Someone’s taking you away from me
(You know) I can’t forget the love we shared together…
