What About Today
Barbra Streisand

What About Today

The tears I'm shedding now
I hear will dry in time
The fears I'm fearing now
I hear will die in time
But while I wait around
For tomorrow
Watching life drift away
What about, yes
What about today?

I know if I just wait
The sun will shine some day
And when it does
The weather will be fine someday
And while the skies I search
For tomorrow
Stay the same shade of gray
What about, yes
What about today?

Till Nirvana comes
What about today?
Till Messiah comes
What about today?
Till the mountains move
And oceans part
And angels sing
And life can start
What about, yes
What about today?

I can't help wondering
If tomorrow ever comes
And what's my life been lived for
If it never comes
I've heard a lot of toasts to tomorrow
But none of them ever say
What about today
What about today?

Till Nirvana comes
What about today
Till Messiah comes
What about today
Till the mountains move
And oceans part
And Angels sing
And life can start
What about, yes
What about today?

I can't help wondering
If tomorrow ever comes
And what's my life been lived for
If it never comes
I've heard a lot of toasts to tomorrow
But none of them ever say
What about, yes
What about
Today?
