Tomorrow Is A Long Time

Album: Bob Dylan's Greatest hits Vol. II (1971)
  • If today was not a crooked 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'
    And if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
    Yes, 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 remember the sound of my own name
    Yes, and only if my own true love was waitin'
    And if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
    Yes and 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'
    I could hear her heart a softly poundin'
    Yes and only if she was lyin' by me
    Then I'd lie in my bed once again Writer/s: BOB DYLAN
