Tomorrow

today I'm gonna fall behind doing what I need
lose my patience, stop short-changing who I want to be
believing there's a better world beyond this one of iron and gold

took a train to Pittsburgh following my muse
wandered through Milwaukee down broken avenues
and I lost my mind in Memphis
watched my diamond dreams turn back to coal

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna reach the light
gonna hit the gas and go so fast
I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow

when I look down at my body I don't recognize myself
I always thought that I'd grow up to be somebody else
there's a stranger in the mirror
a stranger in my arms

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna reach the light
gonna hit the gas and go so fast
I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow

there's nothing in my way today
I'm gonna lose my faith and back off all this silence
if I lose my faith it's okay
I'm gonna find my way back down the road again

standing at the bottom
gazing at the top
burning with desire
ticking like a clock
I spread my wings
try one more time to fly

tomorrow I'm gonna get it right
tomorrow I'm gonna win the fight
gonna hit the gas and go so fast
I blow right past this sorrow
tomorrow
tomorrow
tomorrow
