Tomorrow Never Comes

Each day we look ahead seeing more tomorrows than we can count,

Some of them are ours, of course, and some are not, no doubt.

Every today was once tomorrow and every tomorrow was once today,

And in the end, no matter what, they’ll all be yesterday.

Each tomorrow arrives as today so there really is no chance,

For it to be tomorrow if we can never get there in advance.

Every day that’s ever been before the day we call today,

Is now a day called yesterday and it will always be that way.

No matter how we try to play it each morning as our feet hit the ground,

We can exclaim that it’s tomorrow, but it is to today that we’ll be bound.

So we can bait and switch, add and subtract, to try to change the sums,

But when you think of it in terms of time, tomorrow never comes.
