Tomorrow Is Such A Long Time
If today was not an endless highway

If tonight was not a crooked trail

If tomorrow wasn't such a long time

then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all



Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'

Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'

only if she were lying by me

would I rest in my bed once again



I can't see my reflection in the mirror

I can't speak the sounds that show no pain

I can't hear the echoes of my footsteps

and can't remember the sound of my own name



Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'

Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'

only if she were lying by me

would I rest in my bed once again



There's beauty in the silver singin' river

There's beauty in the sunlight in the sky

But none of these, and nothing else

can steal the beauty

that I remember in my true love's eyes



Ah but only if my own true love is waitin'

Yes and if I could hear her heart a softly poundin'

only if she were lying by me

would I rest in my bed once again
