Touch Tomorrow

I wrote the song, Touch Tomorrow, in 1981. It is funny how a concept that was once so profound could become insignificant later in my life. I currently do not believe that reaching for the future has any benefit when one does not realize the awesomeness of the present. I currently believe it is now! and today! that are the most important aspects of our lives. The lyric now goes against my beliefs that one must reach outside themselves to find happiness and fulfillment. I am simply sharing this lyric I composed while searching for the meaning of life at twenty-three years old.

Touch Tomorrow

I try to touch tomorrow and leave today
I long for chance but it turns away
So now the night drops, into the stars I gaze
Wishing for the Book of Time to turn another page

I try to touch tomorrow and forget I’m here
The dreams of yesterday have all disappeared
The feeling lingers forever in my heart
Of all the hopes that have been torn apart

I need someone to help me
I need someone to help me
Forget today and touch tomorrow

I see little people going nowhere
Hanging dreams on a star that was never there
Some touch petals, some touch thorns
But now I know they’ve not yet been born

They need someone to help them
They need someone to help them
Forget today and touch tomorrow

So I close my eyes and search for paradise
In hope that I may find, inside my weary mind
I can’t feel myself beneath the sky above
I’m a fish without a tail, I’m a ship without a sail

We need someone to help us
We need someone to hear us
We need someone to help us
Forget today and touch tomorrow

Won’t you help me touch tomorrow?
