Tomorrow

I've never had a favorite song. Until now. I think this may well be my all time favorite. For those of you who know how much I love U2, you know its saying a lot for me to pick a song by another band as a favorite. :) But this one is deserving.

There's something about the song that resonates with me. There's just so much truth in it. So much reality. So much that I take personally.

And then of course, I do like Nikki Sixx. I respect anyone who has entered a process of recovery and come out the other side. I know going through a 12 Step program and years of therapy was one of the hardest things I've ever done and I can only imagine how much harder it would be for someone like Nikki whose whole identity and livelihood was defined by sex, drugs, and rock & roll. You can read his story of healing in The Heroin Diaries, a book I've recommended before (but not for the faint of heart or easily offended).

This song is from the soundtrack to the book.

Tomorrow by Sixx A.M.

Where ya gonna be tomorrow?
How ya gonna face the sorrow?
Where ya gonna be when you die?
'Cause nothing's gonna last forever
And things they change like the weather
They're gone in the blink of an eye

Just look at yourself, can you see where you are?
Look at yourself, now you can't hide the scars
Just look at yourself 'cause there's nowhere to go
And you know
Tomorrow
You're gonna have to live with the things you say
Tomorrow
You'll have to cross bridges that you burned today
Tomorrow...
And everything you do, it's coming back for you
You'll never outrun what waits for you
Tomorrow.

And are you terrified by sadness
And have you given into madness
You're running out of places to hide
'Cause everybody's got a reason
To justify how they're feelin'
Maybe you should open your eyes

Just look at yourself, do you like what you see?
Look at yourself, is this how it should be?
Just look at yourself, 'cause there's nowhere to go
And you'll know
Tomorrow
You're gonna have to live with the things you say
Tomorrow
You'll have to cross bridges that you burned today
Tomorrow...
And everything you do, it's coming back for you
You'll never outrun what waits for you
Tomorrow.

Are you waiting for the reason to change?
Are you waiting for the end, has it came?
Nothing's gonna stand in your way...

Just look at yourself, do you like what you see?
Look at yourself, is this how it should be?
Tomorrow
You're gonna have to live with the things you say
Tomorrow
You'll have to cross bridges that you burned today
Tomorrow...
And everything you do, it's coming back for you
You'll never outrun what waits for you
Tomorrow.
