Bryan Ferry – This Is Tomorrow lyrics


Here in the hush of eveninґ
On a night in june
Overhearinґ conversations
Bayinґ at the moon
Suddenly a voice iґm hearinґs
Sweet to my ear
This is tomorrowґs callinґ
Wishin' you were here
Layinґ in my hotel bedroom
Feelinґ ceilinґ blues
Wall to wall a tvґs twitchinґ
Clearly not a muse
Then flashinґ through the interference
Beams a thousand tunes
This is tomorrow callinґ
What have I to lose?
Truckinґ by the railway station
Iґm on the road again
Steerinґ clear of all temptation
Unto the point of pain
When steaminґ through on cue
I hear that wailinґ whistle blow
If this is tomorrow callinґ
Oh what a way to go!
Day to day you live old fashioned
Hi-toned, fancy free
A double take, an image-spittinґ
Tailored to a t
While history is tellinґ you
The same old thing
This is tomorrow callinґ
Letґs stick a new oar in
This is tomorrow callinґ
Yґall ґn
Come on in
