dear my dearest thomas/ december will tell no lies/ and though it brings no promise/ i saw him with my own two eyes/ the rock was moved by father/ with no help from the baffled outside/ believe when i say i was born again today/ but by night i will reach my demise
tomorrow is not coming/ tonight is our final night/ we're counting sheep cuz we'll never sleep/ if morning don't bring sunrise/ how many stars can be torn from the sky/ before we can say goodbye?
nothing lasts forever/ even memories fade to gray/ a man can only endeavor so much/ before he can't hold up the weight
tomorrow is not coming/ tonight is our final night/ we're wiping our faces, but water replaces/ the spot we were trying to dry/ how many tears must one girl cry/ before she can say goodbye?
doubt me/ that's fine/ doubt me/ and i'll try again/ but how many rivers can one man dry/ before he can say goodbye?
