TOMORROW IS TODAY

Words and music
By Ann Hampton Callaway

1. Now in this moment
The corners of the Earth are melting away
How can we stand here
And watch the end begin with nothing to say?
So many signs
Of a planet in distress
Still, we close our eyes pretending not to see
Ev'ry hurricane, ev'ry storm
Grows worse as Earth grows warm
When nature warns her children
We must need the call
Let us heed the call

CHORUS
Tomorrow is today
Tomorrow is today
Our only home might slip away
Tomorrow is today

2. Come, ev'ry nation
All keepers of the earth- man, woman and child
Heal and protect her
Her forests, oceans, glaciers and creatures wild
All things that live
Have a purpose and a place
Lose the balance and we've lost each other
But we have the chance we need
If we, the people, lead
There still is time to change
If we don't hesitate
We cannot wait
Tomorrow is today
Tomorrow is today
Our only home might slip away
Tomorrow is today

3. INSTRUMENTAL 1st half with spoken word:
"After the first picture of earth was taken from space, the poet Archibald MacLeish wrote: 'To see the Earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the Earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold-brothers who know now that they are truly brothers.'"

Let us lay down our arms
And raise our hearts up high
We can be the heroes that our children need
So their fam'lies live to see
Nature's majesty
Let us honor life
As ev'ry day we strive
To help the Earth survive

CHORUS
Tomorrow is today
Tomorrow is today
Our only home can't slip away
Tomorrow is today
Today
