Oh you tell me that you love me

Yes you tell me that you care
That tomorrow we'll be married, oh
But tomorrow's never there

Oh tomorrow never, never comes
Oh tomorrow never comes
Now you tell me that you love me, oh
But tomorrow never comes

Many weeks now have I waited
Oh many long nights have I cried
Just to see that happy morning, happy morning
When I have you right by my side

But tomorrow will never, ever come, oh no, no
Tomorrow never gonna come
Now you tell me that you love me, oh
But tomorrow never, never comes

So tomorrow Ill be leaving
Yes tomorrow Ill be gone
But tomorrow you'll be weeping, oh
But tomorrow will never, never come

Well tomorrow ain't never, never come
Oh no, no, no tomorrow ain't never gonna come
Yeah, yeah, you tell me, you tell me you love me
That you love me, but tomorrow never comes
