Yesterday I got so old
I felt like I could die
Yesterday I got so old
It made me want to cry

Go on go on
Just walk away
Go on go on
Your choice is made
Go on go on
And disappear
Go on go on
Away from here

And I know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her
Inbetween
Without you
Without you

Yesterday I got so scared
I shivered like a child
Yesterday away from you
It froze me deep inside

Come back come back
Don't walk away
Come back come back
Come back today
Come back come back
Why can't you see?
Come back come back
Come back to me

And I know I was wrong
When I said it was true
That it couldn't be me and be her
Inbetween
Without you

I always sing the first two lines of Yes' staple 'Yours Is No Disgrace to this

'Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race,'
(For those not old enough to remember!)

Never really went for The Cure in the day - I was too much of a music snob.

Radio Paradise has (hopefully) resolved that problem.
Just been to see them play live in London last weekend. What a fantastic live band! Over two hours of back to back songs. 
If you get the chance... get on down! 
Just bought "Mixed Up" Box set, Deluxe Edition.

What will the "Shiver Mix" - 2018 remaster of this song be like...........?

Odd, since this song is from 1985; older than either of those songs - much older than the second one you mentioned.  There are some similarities in some of their chord progressions and guitar sound sometime, though.
Interestingly, some thought the Cure were "over" and then this one was released. They had some life left in em, that was for sure

Well said. Listening to the arrangement, and trying to remove my personal knowledge and bias from the equation, I really believe this could pass for a new song. It certainly doesn’t sound 30 years old. The energy from the drumming is palpable. A solid 9 for me.
Just makes me wanna dance. {#Dancingbanana}

My mood just changed completely when RP played this song this morning. This song always puts me in a great mood!

The Cure was considered to be one of the coolest bands around when I grew up during the 80's but their songs never really touched me. I like this one though.
When you say it's true  first becomes a make do, and then true.
