lyrics

(lyrics)

You're looking through an hourglass
Watching the sand fall
Wondering if your big plans will get you
Anywhere at all
Walking down an empty street
Silence in your ears
A million eyes upon you and you just
Wanna disappear- yeah

And oh, it's a crime how
You're always waiting for tomorrow
Stop wasting time now
You can't beg, can't steal or borrow
Can't beg, can't steal or borrow

Giving in to circumstance
You make it your ally
Counting on a second chance
Believing, believing your own lies
Now the sun is setting low
What happened to today
What could have been you'll never know
What will be only you can say
Only you can say

It's up there on the movie screen
It's shining in your eyes
It's cutting to the final scene
That's got you paralyzed
Down to the wire now
There's no turning back
Waiting 'til you find the power
You're gonna, gonna fade to black

And, oh, it's a crime how
You're always waiting for tomorrow
Stop wasting time now
You can't beg, can't steal or borrow
Oh, it's on the line now
There's no one left for you to follow
You're wasting time now
Stop waiting for tomorrow
Waiting for tomorrow
Waiting for tomorrow, waiting for tomorrow, tomorrow
Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow
