Don’t Sleep; Tomorrow

Oh! This beautiful tomorrow
You are all I have ever hope for
My night and day have I waited for you
All of my time have I spent thinking
And plugging seeds into the soil
Only for an harvest
My beautiful tomorrow

Oh! This beautiful tomorrow
All of my sweat have I given out for you
Putting round pegs in round holes
Oh how I wish to spend it with you
My eyes are tied to the sun without sleep
My hands are stocked in the field without rest
Just to see you come alive
As a fertile morning

Oh! This beautiful tomorrow
I perceive the beautiful sunshine
As it overtake the dark parts of the night
I see the darkness turning into morning
With curiosity hanging on the wind
as the pregnancy is set to unfold itself
pushing hard with every breath I had
I hold fast to every dream that flashes my mind
Because you remind me of only one thing
How beautiful tomorrow will be.

A smile of joy since I was born
