Treasure Island

Raymond Valadez

(12-21-1982 / Mexico)

tomorrow never came


why did you promise tomorrow?
tomorrow never came and i was never the same
that why i insist on holding on to today.

what is in my dreams?
if i am tormented by your beuaty
and memories of your image is all i see
please have mercy on me
and set me free

reality looks so bleek
when you no longer stand next to me
when i dont run to where youll be
when we are no longer complete

is it fair to blame our destiny?
for dealing us with this reality
and ruining all our fantasies
of a life where all our dreams come true for you and me

let me say that i wish it so
but deep inside i know its no
that faith for me was to be alone
and in my nights with missery is how i cope

i guess its not all bad
because i make everyone laugh while i stay sad
fake emotions to blend in glad

ask my self when will i be ok
i pray the lord helps me along my way
but if forever i am to feel this pain
i will understand that i am too, partly to blame
but i will always wonder why?
our tomorrow never came
