Here are the lyrics of the song!
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
But just to see that happy morning, happy morning
When I have you right by my side
But tomorrow will never come, oh no, no
Tomorrow never gonna come
Now you tell me that you love me
But tomorrow never, never comes
So tomorrow I’ll be leaving
Yes tomorrow I’ll be gone
But tomorrow you’ll be weeping, oh
But tomorrow will never, never come
Well tomorrow will never, never come
Oh no, tomorrow ain’t never gonna come
Yeah, yeah, you tell me, you tell me
That you love me, but tomorrow never comes
