Yesterday's Feelings Lyrics

Close my eyes and move to the back of my mind
Where worries are washed out to sea
See the changes, people's faces blurred out
Like the sun spots or raindrops

Now all those feelings, those yesterdays feelings will all be lost in time
but...

    I think Bert personally was probably writing these lyrics about his ex-partner/girlfriend who tragically OD'd + died w h i l e pregnant with their baby..this happened shortly before (or right after?can't recall for sure..) the drop of their 2004 sophomore album 'in love&death.' He+the band were also sporadically dealing with substance use+abuse and McCracken also lost his beloved chihuahua which he wrote the song 'all that i've got,' in memoriam to his doggo. Bassist Jeph Howard said that to him, the song is about forgetting – "forgetting bad things in the past and bad things that other people have done to you."
    He also believes the song is about starting over. Personally I can see all of these elements in the song. I see it as a siren song to a love lost (gone from this earth/universe. ⏳♥

    I think it's about someone suppressing their feelings about someone, because they feel insecure about those feelings. They think that: "All those feelings, those yesterdays feelings will all be lost in time," They think that if they keep the feelings secret and ignore them, they'll go away.

    i think it means that you have just lost someone or something deeply important to you and that you loved so much and you justwatched wash away. and its either you want the feelings to go away or you want the feelings to stay with you cuz you want the something back in your life.

    I think it's about letting anything that bothers you go and trying too get away from the past, not looking back but only thinking of now and taking a step each day so some day your feelings will mean everything

    About their past album. In the sleeve of the cd, over the lyrics of this song is a pic of the dolls face, the same doll that is on their self titled album, only it has its face blown out with a shotgun. all the feelings from yesterday are washed out to see, starting their new era of music and emotion. yesterdays feeling.

    I THINK that its more about forgetting all the bad things that have happened in the past and just to get over it,life is to short

    This song is about losing someone you love or just losing something that means a lot to you in general. And the only way to cure an emotional hurt is time. Time will heal everything and the initial feelings of hurt will eventually go away as you try not to think about it and live for today and not look back

    Well it's definitely about feelings that's a duh. I think it could be about wasting time thinking about your feelings because its pointless and it isn't going to do anything so you blur everything out. Feelings from the past don't matter, so why should todays? "All those feelings, those yesterdays feelings will all be lost in time but today I've wasted away for today is on my mind (yeah today is on my mind)"

    i think this song is about going through life completely numb... when something bothers you, you just put it in the back of your mind so you don't have to feel. It feels wrong to feel. feelings mean nothing...

    i think it's about how his feeling don't matter anymore but he can't escape them and how if he can just get though it all he will find that things will all work out

    thats just what I think I could be completely wrong

    This song is about wasting time worrying and feeling alone; while all the feelings he feels will be lost in time. Therefore feelings mean nothing.
