Maybe tomorrow
Will end all your sorrow
She whispered once the day was done
Searched a long while
For a trace of her smile
Fading like the setting sun

Surrogate starlight
Through city and car-light
Glistening like a second sky
Lovingly jaded
But recklessly faded
Scrounging for that fleeting high

Now I smoke my hours away
'Cause I was stronger yesterday
I've got nothing left to say
To anyone at all

A record turnout
Of beggars and burnouts
Part of the city's grim display
Simple solutions
Bored revolutions
It can all wait another day

A dubious kiss
To regret in remiss
Although it made up for long lost years
Dearly departed
But not brokenhearted
I've withheld far too many tears

And though you stand out from the crowd
It's just to make yourself feel proud
There's not a lot that ain't allowed
If anything at all

You may think your vision's clear
Well, I'm not done living in fear
I will not think about it here
Or anywhere at all

Or anywhere at all
