Today
©2013 Hugh Birdsall
Some day
The sun will shine
Through the pouring rain
Some day
Your despair
Won’t be someone else’s gain
And some point, out of time
With a genius so sublime
This bleak and mortal plane
Will merge with the divine
Today
Is not that day

Some day
The moon will be transformed
Into a silver ball
Some day
We’ll find a fairer place
From which we’ll never fall
And some point, out of time
With a genius so sublime
This bleak and mortal plane
Will merge with the divine
Today
Is not that day

Today is the not the day
When all your dreams come true
Today is not the day
When all you’ve lost comes back to you
Today
Is not that day

Today is the day
We imagine
Just what is
Today is the day -
When every breath
Is this
An instant slipping by
Laughter then a sigh
A graceful melody
That says we’re still alive
Today, today
