I met a man back in the future He was high then he was low You know his one consideration Should he come or should he go
I met a girl she wants to give me The gift of living just for today Ignore the past ignore the future You're only going to wish your life away - say
Chorus: Why can't today be tomorrow Why must there be yesterday Why can't today be tomorrow Oh tell me why please tell me why Are you wishing your life away?
You know that life is no rehearsal You're never going to get it right It's inconsistent and it's imperfect It's going to give you sleepless nights
And then you find you wake up nervous For every reason under the sun Life is full of indecision It's the same for everyone - say
(Chorus) Why can't today be tomorrow Why must there be yesterday - so tell me Why can't today be tomorrow - oh tell me Why can't today be tomorrow Are you wishing you're life away Why can't today be tomorrow?
