Lyric Spotlight Q&A

Every time I see a jet plane
I wonder where it’ll touch down
And every time I hear a diesel train
I wonder where it’s bound
I think the same about us
When I live too much in my mind
‘Cause tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time

I’ve seen wedding vows
consumed by flames
Because someone’s love has died
Or someone’s mind has changed
And who knows if what we’ve built
Will stand the test of time?
Tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time

Tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time
Throw a coin into the well
A nickel or a dime
Or whisper a little prayer
When the church bell chimes
‘Cause tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time

On the day that we are born
Sand starts flowin’ through the glass
Until it all comes full circle
And the future meets the past
And even if you walk with Jesus
The devil’s never far behind
And tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time.

Tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time
Throw a coin into the well
A nickel or a dime
Or whisper a little prayer
When the church bell chimes
‘Cause tomorrow’s just a promise
That can be broken any time
