The tears I'm shedding now
I hear will dry in time
The fears I'm fearing now
I hear will die in time

But while I wait around for tomorrow
Watching life drift away
What about, yes what about today?

I know if I just wait
The sun will shine some day
And when it does
The weather will be fine someday

But while the skies I search for tomorrow
Stay that same shade of gray
What about, yes what about today?

'Til Nirvana comes, what about today?
'Til Messiah comes, what about today?
'Til the mountains move and oceans part
And angels sing and life can start
What about, yes what about today?

I can't help wondering, if tomorrow ever comes
And what's my life been lived for, if it never comes
I've heard a lot of toasts to tomorrow
But none of them ever say

What about today? What about today?
'Til nirvana comes what about today?
'Til messiah comes what about today?
'Til the mountains move and oceans part
And angels sing and life can start
What about, yes what about today?

I can't help wondering, if tomorrow ever comes
And what's my life been lived for, if it never comes
I've heard a lot of toasts to tomorrow
But none of them ever say

What about today? What about today?
What about, yes what about today?
