Aura "Yesterday's Love"

Track

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...
