Always Tomorrow

Tomorrow we will turn the page And close the book Tomorrow The story ends And I will have to carry on Tomorrow, Always tomorrow, I will say goodbye To the stars To the moon To us Tomorrow I will not wake up And tell you I love you No matter how badly I want to

Torrential Downpours

I told myself Today The sun rose Somewhere in the sky Behind torrential downpours Which is the truth But it’s also what I tell myself On days When the darkness is winning.
