· Yárë - Yesterday ·

Non-literal poetic Quenya translation

Yáre, ilye tarsanyar vahaiar cenine
Sí ta cenina te nár sí nie
Ai, annan estel yáren

Tyelca, umin per i nér nén mi vanwie
Ea leo or ni telta
Ai, yáre tulle tyelca

Manan autanes *
-istan umeris quete
Quenten mistana nat,
Sí milyan yáre

Yáre, melme né iltarya tyalie
Sí mauran men nurtie
Ai, annan estel yáren

Manan autanes *
-istan umeris quete
Quenten mistana nat,
Sí milyan yáre

Yáre, melme né iltarya tyalie
Sí mauran men nurtie
Ai, annan estel yáren

Mm mm mm mm mm

(* here I had to change the meaning for saving the metre, although the Beatles were beat-less...)

English source, by The Beatles

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why she had to go
I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong,
now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go
I don't know she wouldn't say
I said something wrong,
now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Mm mm mm mm mm
