Tomorrow May Be Different

There are times when I simply must

Stay home all day and cry

When sadness washes over me

And my eyes will not be dry

 

When the world is such a weary place

Though nothing’s really wrong

I haven’t any way to go

I hear a heavy song

 

Most days I can move past it

Or set it aside for a while

But there are times when I can not

Muster up a smile

 

Not only for the past

But for the future too

I cry out all my tears

For myself and yes, for you

 

For all the silly people

For the condition of mankind

For all the busy people

No solution they will find

 

There seems to be no answer

To the problems of this life

It’s such a troubled world

A struggle full of strife

 

On a day when such a sadness

Has somehow claimed her rule

I simply can’t go anywhere

I feel like a stupid fool

 

My mental state in question

I must cry to find relief

By the end of so much sobbing

I’ve cried out all my grief

 

At the end, I’m quite exhausted

And it hasn’t helped a thing

Except drained out the heavy song

That my heart will sometimes sing

 

And then if I am lucky

I’ll hear a happier tune

And if I listen carefully

I’ll be singing that way soon

 

It’s such a wicked world

All full of pain and sorrow

But there’s a rainbow somewhere

And there’s still hope for tomorrow

 

Today I will not worry

I’m okay for a while

Tomorrow may be different

But today I have a smile.
