about

this was the third song i ever wrote and i really was motivated by the speed at which life can transmogrify your fears, your hopes, your whole life into something pretty unrecognizable in a fairly short amount of time: you find the lump, the person says yes, you quit your job, you leave a bird in the hand for the freedom from having any birds at all, you find the note from someone else to your lover. (this really happened...)

lyrics

just like the morning light that falls on the floor
the angle changes so slow
but still it moves towards the door

well, yesterday, i thought i knew you
thought i was the one you loved so much
but when pushin' came a'callin'
you shoved

twenty four hours
i didn't know i could change that much
twenty four hours
i didn't know i could say 'that's enough'
twenty four hours

i guess i was looking for some kind of false security
something to anchor me down
i never counted on life's immaturity
'til you let me down

and yesterday i thought i knew you
thought you were the one i could believe
but when pushin' comes to shovin'
you leave

twenty four hours
i didn't know i could change that quick
twenty four hours
i didn't know we would be like this
in twenty four hours

yesterday you were my strong man of steel
someone that i could trust
but even though one and one is still two
now you and me don't mean us
and after a little bad weather and temptation, baby,
you rust

twenty four hours
i didn't know i could live without your love
just twenty four hours
i didn't know i could say 'that's enough'
just twenty four hours
i didn't know we could change that quick
in twenty four hours
i didn't want life to be life this

just twenty four hours ago
just twenty four hours ago
no no no, no no no

just yesterday, just yesterday
you were mine, things were fine
you were mine, things were fine

oh, just yesterday, just yesterday
we were we, not just me
yeah, we were we, not just me
just twenty four hours ago
just twenty four hours ago...
no no no
