Lyrics by Manu Rodriguez, from the book "Songs [Still!] Waiting For A Rock Band", as read, in English, by Jimmy Carlyle.
Note, this translation differs considerably from that used in the final book.
Yesterday I realised that no,
not everything that shines is gold.
Yesterday I saw in your face - no,
It’s not even brass.
Seems like a lie and maybe this is so,
you were nevver as I imagined,
but I tell you, you will lose more.
Maybe you will try to change,
but my face will not return
to the smile of yesterday.
Friendship is something you have to nurture,
Especially when it seems that even truth can deceive you.
No, it will never be the same.
Maybe someday I’ll see you somewhere
and remember something about you.
Tomorrow I will forget we ever played together,
passengers on the same boat.
Never forget that your pride is worth nothing,
It will drown you
it never will be the same.
