Yesterday

Gyrstandæg eall mīn sārnes wæs swā feorr āweg,
Nū mē wille findan ǣlce dæg.
Oh ic gelyf' on gyrstandæg.
 
Færlice is mīn līf swā ǣmptig būtan þē.
Þǣr is sceadu, hangaþ ofer mē,
Oh, gyrstandæg cōm færlice.
 
Hwy hē forþ gewāt,
Ic ne wāt ne secgan mæg.
Ic cwæþ sum word stunt,
Nū ic huntige blīðne dæg.
Gystrandæg lufu lange wæs mē wynsum weg.
Nū ic sece hwær mē hydan mæg,
Oh ic gelyf' on gyrstandæg.

Please forgive any inconsistencies in accents/spellings, etc. It's just what I have. I've tidied it up a little, but it won't be perfect.

Ic hōpie þæt gē hit brȳcaþ.

Yesterday

Yesterday all my sorrow was so far away
Now I want to find another day
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Suddenly my life is so empty without you
There is shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly
 
Why he went away
I don't know, I couldn't say
I said something stupid
Now I'm hunting for a happy day
Yesterday lasting love was my joyful way
Now I search for where I can hide
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Why he went away
I don't know, I couldn't say
I said something stupid
Now I'm hunting for a happy day
Yesterday lasting love was my joyful way
Now I search for where I can hide
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Oh, I believe in yesterday
 
Thanks!
