Tomorrow Today

from Tomorrow Today

Twentieth reunion. Cant believe its been that long.
Seems like only yesterday we were dancing at the prom.
Look whos had a facelift. Look whos gotten bald.
Hey, the captain of the football team finally came out after all.
The homecoming queen looks stunning. I cant say that Im surprised.
But her king looks like an ape in a cheap suit and a bad necktie.
But youre the only reason I came here tonight.
After all these years rehearsing, I hope I get it right.

CHORUS:
If we could start tomorrow today
Id pack up all my yesterdays
And throw them all away.
Ive been dreaming of you
For so long it hurts to say
I hope its not too late to ask
If we could start tomorrow today.

I think of all those moonlit walks, all the sunsets we have missed
Those romantic, stolen-moment places where we would have kissed:
Paris in the springtime. Italy by train.
A weekend in the Berkshires. A retreat in Santa Fe.
When I linger on lost memories and old times we should have shared
I kick myself because tonight took far too many years.
But youre the only reason I came here tonight.
After all these years rehearsing, I hope I get it right.

CHORUS
