I could’ve sworn this was the way
When we started down—
I thought we’d left a light on, dear,
But I can’t see it now.
I can’t even find the chance
When it’s right here in my way,
But I remember tomorrow
Like it was yesterday

You called out something in your sleep
It was not my name—
You startled when I pulled you close
But I held you just the same.
Neither of us spoke again
In the dark as we lay,
Pretending tomorrow would come
Like it was yesterday

The birds have picked the blossoms
I think out of spite—
The dogs have taken to the street
Like it was theirs by right.
The clouds have drawn a curtain
Where the stars have gown a stray,
Taking our tomorrow
Like it was yesterday
