Tomorrow Never Come

For you to feel as you feel right

Tomorrow Never Come

Yesterday be forgotten. Tomorrow never come.

As one by one we fall from grace.

So elegantly we stood harmlessly in our domain

One simple loving race.

We took what you wanted not and give you what you need.

Air, blood, flesh to make your work.

Our sacrifices are your absurd privileges

As in the darkness we lurk.

You hear the wind through our hair as we stand up high;

You taste our scent as you touch us

Before penetrating our soul, drowning out our screams

Without a second thought.

Carry on; we won’t always be here to stop your fall

And all those that live within us

That are thankful for our time, warmth and shelter will run;

Gone like us forever.
