Push off your sadness until tomorrow

            Lean close enough so that I can see

The ripples in the color of your eyes

 

Push off your sadness until tomorrow

            Turn blind to your aching soul

And gift me with a wry smile

 

Push off your sadness until tomorrow, my darling

            You see this is just getting older

The more you age the more you know

            As you learn the way of the world

Your heart grows colder

 

Push off your sadness until tomorrow

            Now that you’ve found your

Vulnerabilities, your mortality

 

Push off your sadness until tomorrow

            For now you know

Its end you may not see
