Waiting For Tomorrow

It struck me that I hadn't written anything all year, so instead of getting on the Internet while daisy_knotwise was putting Katie to bed, I pulled out the guitar and wrote this instead:

Waiting For Tomorrow

Waiting for tomorrow, it’s a long time coming
But it’s just another day away.
Waiting for tomorrow, hear the future humming
And tomorrow we are gonna play.
Driving round on hydrogen we make from the power
We’re beaming down from up in the sky.
Computer’s got me going about ninety miles an hour
And tomorrow we will learn how to fly.

Waiting for tomorrow for a brand new sunrise
When they’re gonna take me in for repair.
Waiting for tomorrow, gonna see with new eyes
And I promise I’m not gonna stare.
Put me back together, make me better, stronger, faster,
And younger than I was before.
Replicating DNA, creating a new master –
Genetic backup and restore.

I just gotta get to tomorrow,
‘Cause tomorrow’s where I want to be.
Find a time machine I can borrow,
‘Cause tomorrow’s not getting here soon enough for me.

Waiting for tomorrow for a new horizon
That is out beyond the atmosphere.
Waiting for tomorrow and the big ships risin’
And a journey to a new frontier.
Time and space are bending as we’re harnessing the power
That we’re skimming from the quantum foam.
I’ll meet you in Andromeda in about a half an hour
And I promise that I’ll take you home.

I’m waiting for tomorrow.
I’m waiting for tomorrow.
I’m waiting for tomorrow.
