Tomorrow is a Long Time
If today was not a crooked highway
If tonight was not a crooked trail
If tomorrow wasn't such a long time
n' lonesome would mean nothin' to you at all
Yes, and only if my own true lave was waitin'
If I could hear her heart a softly poundin'
Yes n only if she was lyin' by me
I'd lie in my bed once again
I can't see my reflection in the water
I can't speak the sounds that show no pain
I can't hear the echo of my footsteps
Or remember the sound of my own name
There's beauty in that silver singin' river
There's beauty in that rainbow in the sky
But none of these and nothin' else can touch the beauty
That I remember in my true love's eyes
Yes an' only if my own true love was waiting
If I could hear her heart softly poundin'
Yea n only if she was lyin' by me
An' I'd lie in my bed once again
