The Last Today

If I'm lucky
today will be my last day
I just don't want to stay
This is my last today
tomorrow, maybe next week
I'm sick of making exuses
and hoping for the future
when there really is
no future in sight
I have nothing to remember
Nothing to believe

If I'm lucky
tomorrow will be my first day
not having a broken heart
in my way
I will have something to say
about today
tomorrow, and the next week
I want to live for myself
Not for everyone else
I want to know myself
I have to remember
I have to believe...
in today
tomorrow and the next week
I've got to find the glow
And be close to people
the people I need to know

Yesterday and the year before
are all in the place they should be
I've locked them up
in my memory
Today is my future
Tomorrow and next week just a dream
When I find myself
my life will be that dream

If I'm lucky
today will be my last day
of having hurt in my way
I'm not going to stay
Not going to be left this way
This is my last today
tomorrow, maybe next week
I am living for myself
I know myself
I have to remember
I have to believe
