Born Yesterday
Everly Brothers

Living in the city where the walls have ears
People judge you by the words they hear
Shake their heads while they chew your name
And then they write it on a wall

People see you and they turn their heads
Whisper words you might have said
Point to a spot where you may have bled
Then they write it on a wall

He lost his mind today
She threw his clothes away
The love they thought would last just flew away

She lost her mind today
He threw her ring away
They act as if they were born yesterday

And I wonder whose heart hurts the worst
And who knows whose heart was broke first

No one gives them the love they need
Or helps them through their time of grief
After all, it could be you or me
We're just human after all

He lost his mind today
She threw his clothes away
The love they thought would last just flew away

She lost her mind today
He threw her ring away
They act as if they were born yesterday

And I wonder whose heart hurts the worst
And who knows whose heart was broke first

They lost their minds today
They threw their love away
They act as if they were born yesterday

They lost their love today
They threw it all away
They act as if they were born yesterday
