The Lyrics

This song is about all of the rock bands of years past that are trying to regenerate their careers with reunion tours and new albums. Unfortunately, their sound usually hit its peak during the peak of their careers a few decades earlier.
I don't want to hear about it anymore.
It's a shame I've got to live like a glory whore
There's a hole in my wallet
A dwindling of my fame, it's driving me crazy.

Critics will just talk about me, forevermore
"Yesterday's just a memory; can we close the door?
He just made one mistake,
He didn't know how to leave the glam rock 80's!"

Don't say it's a fright
Say my voice will stay forever
So good, always.

Can I sing this high enough?
Sing my songs all over, like yesterday...
Can I sing this high enough?
My career's not over and yesterday's not a memory
Yesterday's not a memory.

I don't want my voice to scratch out anymore
Put my fans in misery
And you know for sure
My looks are dyin' too
The botox just won't do to fix me baby!

Don't say it's a fright
Say my voice will stay forever
So good, always.

Can I sing this high enough?
Sing my songs all over, like yesterday...
Can I sing this high enough?
I'm never over and yesterday's not a memory

I was singing
For a few decades or more
Realizing now or never
(I'll be) Pimping my songs like a whore
Oh, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah

[Instrumental]

Don't say it's a fright
Say my voice will stay forever
So good always
Every day
Every day, yeah!

Can I sing this high enough?
Sing my songs all over, like yesterday...
Can I sing this high enough?
I'm never over, no, no, no, whoa.

Can I sing this high enough?
Sing my songs all over, like yesterday...
Can I sing this high enough?
I'm gettin' older, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa
