If Tomorrow Never Comes

If Tomorrow Never Comes

Todd Snider

If tomorrow never comes
I wont give a damn
If tomorrow never comes
I will not be afraid to meet my maker
Just the way that I am
You cant prove anything
But one thing is true
If you can steal from me
I can steal from you

Any kind of heaven every body doesn't get in
Wont seem like a heaven to me
They tell you that the garden of Eden was perfect
But you couldn't even eat off the apple tree
And for heavens sakes look out for that snake
Lying to your woman constantly
Adam must have scratched his head
Looked up and said
Lord this just isn't doing it for me

If tomorrow never comes
I wont give a damn
If tomorrow never comes
I dont want to be afraid
To come and meet you just the way that I am
I cant do anything im dying too
If tomorrow never comes
Tonight will have to do

I say I don't ever claim to know whats going on around here
I don't even know where i'm from
I know where i'm going when I get to where i'm going
What i'm doing when I get done
You tell me i'm forgiven if I need to be
I say permission ought to come that easily
I'm piling cores up underneath this apple tree
Singing oh lord have mercy on me

If tomorrow never comes
And tonight is all I got
If tomorrow never comes
I don't want to be afraid
To come and meet you just the way that i'm not
Cant do anything
And then you die
Judge the judgmental and what am I?

Either way i'm every guy I ever tried not to be
I want everything as good as it gets
I've learned nothing but that there is another sun rise coming
All but one of the times it sets

And if tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes
If tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes
If we were all good people
We could work in perfect rhythm
If worms had daggers
Birds wouldn't fuck with them
