Tomorrow is a Long Time

If today was not an endless highway,

If tonight was not a crooked trail,

If tomorrow wasn't such a long time,

Then lonesome would mean nothing to you at all.

Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',

Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',

Only if she was lyin' by me,

Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

.

I can't see my reflection in the waters,

I can't speak the sounds that show no pain,

I can't hear the echo of my footsteps,

Or can't remember the sound of my own name.

Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',

Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',

Only if she was lyin' by me,

Then I'd lie in my bed once again.

.

There's beauty in the silver, singin' river,

There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky,

But none of these and nothing else can touch the beauty

That I remember in my true love's eyes.

Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin',

Yes, and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin',

Only if she was lyin' by me,

Then I'd lie in my bed once again.
