Tomorrow Is Today Lyrics

Artist: Billy Joel
Album: Cold Spring Harbor

I've been livin' for the moment
But I just can't have my way
And I'm afraid to go to sleep
'Cause tomorrow is today

People tell me life is sweeter
But I don't hear what they say
Nothing comes to change my life
So tomorrow is today

I don't care to know the hour
'Cause it's passing anyway
I don't have to see tomorrow
'Cause I saw it yesterday

So I listen for and answer
But the feeling seems to stay
And what's the use of always dreaming
If tomorrow is today

Still I'm waiting for the morning
But it feels so far away
And you don't need the love I'm giving
So tomorrow is today

Oh, my. Goin' to the river
Gonna take a ride and the Lord will deliver me
Made my bed, now I'm gonna lie in it
If you don't come, I'm sure gonna die in it
Too late. Too much given
I've seen a lot of life and I'm damn sick of livin' it
I keep hopin' that you will pass my way

And some day if your dreams are leavin' you
I'll still believe in you

I don't care to know the hour
'Cause it's passing anyway
I don't have to see tomorrow
'Cause I saw it yesterday

Though I'm living and I'm singing
And although my hands still play
Soon enough it will all be over
'Cause tomorrow is today

This is the first I heard of this song. I don't know the music but I love the works. I recently have just been looking at lyrics since I love words. You can tell if people are sincere by their lyrics. Billy you most definetly are sincere. Love Marge

If a song could describe my life with my wife, this would be one of the top five.

I agree Billy. Life is too short somake the best of it and live every day like it's your last.

He wasn't making a point about life being too short - he wrote this song shortly before attempting to commit suicide by drinking furniture polish. It was his message to the world that he was tired of life. Something I know all too well

every song of billy joel put in words things that most of us feel but don't know how to say them. so that's why i think he's the gratest singer and composer in the world. the message of this song is simply live everyday as if it was your last one but in a lovely way, billy's way! love you billy!

I like bleach more than furniture polish. Thats why I hate Billy Joel.
