  • Here's wishing you the bluest sky
    And hoping something better comes tomorrow
    Hoping all the verses rhyme
    And the very best of choruses, too
    Follow all the doubt and sadness
    I know that better things are on the way

    Here's hoping all the days ahead
    Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you
    Be an optimist instead
    And somehow happiness will find you
    Forget what happened yesterday
    I know that better things are on the way

    It's really good to see you rocking out
    And having fun
    Living like you've just begun
    Accept your life and what it brings
    I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
    I know tomorrow you'll find better things

    Here's wishing you the bluest sky
    And hoping something better comes tomorrow
    Hoping all the verses rhyme
    And the very best of choruses, too
    Follow all the doubt and sadness
    I know that better things are on the way

    I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead
    The past is gone, it's all been said
    So here's to what the future brings
    I know tomorrow you'll find better things
    I know tomorrow you'll find better things
    I hope tomorrow you'll find better things
    I know tomorrow you'll find better things
    I hope tomorrow you'll find better things Writer/s: Ray Davies
