Tomorrow is a Long Time

Traditional. Arrangement The Black Family

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


And only If my own true love was waiting
And if I could hear his heart softly pounding
Only if he was lying by me
Then 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 I can't remember the sound of my own name

There's beauty in the silver singing river
There's beauty in the sunrise in the sky
But none of these or nothing can touch the beauty
That I remember in my own true lover's eyes
