For Tomorrow

Album: Modern Life is Rubbish (1993)
Charted: 28
  • He's a twentieth century boy
    With his hands on the rails
    Trying not to be sick again
    And holding on for tomorrow

    London ice cracks on a seamless line
    He's hanging on for dear life
    And so we hold each other tightly
    And hold on for tomorrow

    Singing la, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    Holding on for tomorrow

    She's a twentieth century girl
    With her hands on the wheel
    Trying not to make you sick again
    Seeing what she can borrow
    London's so nice back in your seamless rhymes
    But we're lost on the West way
    So we hold each other tightly
    And we can wait until tomorrow

    Singing la, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    Holding on for tomorrow

    We're trying not to be sick again
    And holding on for tomorrow

    She's a twentieth century girl
    Holding on for dear life
    And so we hold each other tightly
    And hold on for tomorrow

    Singing la, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    La, la la l-la, la, la la, l-la l-la la-la-la
    Holding on for tomorrow

    Jim stops and gets out of the car
    Goes to a house in Emperor's Gate
    Through the door and to his room, and then he puts the TV on
    Turns it off and makes some tea
    Says modern life is rubbish

    I'm holding on for tomorrow

    Then Susan comes into the room
    She's a naughty girl with a lovely smile
    Says, 'let's take a drive to Primrose Hill
    It's windy there, and the view's so nice.'
    London ice can freeze your toes, like anyone, I suppose

    You're holding on for tomorrow Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
