Tomorrow Is A Long Time     (Bob Dylan)

If today was not an endless 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'
Yes and if I could hear her heart a-softly poundin'
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 can't remember the sound of my own name;

Yes and only ...

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 ...

Chris Hillman  "Morning Sky"   1982
