lyrics

Rewriting Tomorrow

he understands he brings his troubles on himself
as he wonders how another choice might have felt
and he secretly admits to himself he needs help
but wonders who's left to turn to
and so what are you grieving? what do you need?
you know there’s no relieving a hunger that feeds
he tried to wait it out ‘til he was down on his knees
vowing to rewrite tomorrow

she disregards all the plans that she’s made
and sees to it that all her bills are paid
as she steps off the stage from the role she has played
so well so long
and so what are you grieving? what do you need?
by the time she left Cleveland she had little to leave
but she understood she had to get herself free
if she wanted to rewrite tomorrow

and now he’s suffering those long shot blues
he went and paid the rent before he paid his dues
now any little dream he might like to pursue
stands beyond the horizon
and so what are you grieving? what do you need?
you know the cost of living here is more than it seems
once the month is up you’re just a mouth to feed
trying to rewrite tomorrow

she regrets ever getting involved
but a troubled man has a certain kind of draw
that makes her feel as if all her problems are solved
by attending to another
and so what are you grieving? what do you need?
there will be no retrieving the things that you leave
when you gotta get out you just grab what you need
if you want to rewrite tomorrow

despite the fear of being alone
they’re both glad to be free now and on their own
choosing their destination and the road
that will take them there
and so what are you grieving? what do you need?
in those early years we were so happy
and that’s what I will miss more than anything
as I go and rewrite tomorrow
