Verse 1
The changing of sunlight to moonlight
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes
Verse 2 (Repeat)
The greetings of people in trouble
Reflections of my life
Oh how they fill my eyes

Oh my sorrows
Sad tomorrows
Take me back to my own home

Chorus (Repeat)
Oh my crying (Oh my crying)
Feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back
To my own home

Verse 3 (Repeat Verse 1)
I'm changing, arranging,
I'm changing,
I'm changing everything
Everything around me

Verse 4 (Repeat Verse 1)
The world is
A bad place
A bad place
A terrible place to live
Oh but I don't wanna die ...

Chorus (2 x)

    Changing of the sunlight of youth to the moonlight of old age. Reflecting on days long gone. The greetings of people in the trouble of old age. Wanting to die in your own home instead of an institution. Changing your body with age, your will, arranging your affairs. The world is a terrible place, but death is coming as it does to all of us.

    It's a very haunting song and can be about a lot of things to different people. Your thinking of sad moments you've experienced and just long for home. It's a has spaces for you in the music and lyrics that breath your life into a kind of focus. All my sad tomorrows, just great lyric. Love this song.

    This is something to do with what life has taught on you. I love this song, i searched this song 3 weeks ago and i ended up with the beatles' sorrow song. Heheeh... I didn't know back then the title... Oh how i love the oldies and classic songs... Too bad my generation was not able to appreciate this.

    While it is reminscent of the viet to be nam era to be sure, it seems to put into music what i seem to be feeling these days. As i move through the years, i look back at what i've done, both the good and the bad and get a little nostalgic wishing i had done some things differently.

    We all look back on our lives - many of us have too many sad times to look back upon. For some, this was the viet nam war. For others, it was the unfortunate mess we made of our lives...
