Song Lyrics - Let's Just Talk About Today

I can't make any promises
And I don't know about tomorrow
I just wake up each day
And wonder
Will she keep the love I borrow?

Hey baby
Let's just talk about today
Let's just stay inside and play
Let's not bring it up today
I don't want to talk about tomorrow

Hey baby
Let's just talk about this morning
And not the things we're ignoring
Let's not bring it up this morning
I don't want to talk about tomorrow

I don't want to talk about tomorrow
I don't want to talk about sorrow
I don't want to talk about the love I borrow
I just want to talk about today

Hey baby
Let's just talk about tonight
Let's just stare at the moonlight
Let's not bring it up tonight
I don't want to talk about tomorrow

I don't want to think about life's demands
I don't want to talk about long-term plans
I don't want to hear about God's commands
I just want to talk about today

I don't want to talk about tomorrow
I don't want to talk about sorrow
I don't want to talk about the love I borrow
I just want to talk about today

What if I bought you some flowers?
Would they get us through these next few hours?
Or would they just remind you once again
That our love is just a beautiful dead end?

I don't want to talk about tomorrow
I don't want to talk about sorrow
I don't want to talk about the love I borrow
I just want to talk about today

There are so many different thoughts that come to mind as I read the words--wonderfully powerful words. I am sure, depending on the reader, the take-away-message will be different. The one things I came away thinking is "live each day as if is your last"... Thank you again Suburban Poet for allowing me a great moment of contemplation.

@Dee - I'll let you decide what it means... it's better that way... you don't have to thank me. I am the one who should thank you for taking the time to read and comment as you do. I am the one who is honored by you....

Hello suburban poet

I have not been keeping up. I am ?? poems behind. I have some time this morning to catch up. I enjoy reading your poems. I read them outloud.

I personally struggle with what your poem is "singing" about and I am never sure what is now and what is tomorrow. I haven't worried about death for a long time now and I have my eyes fixed on at least 100 years old. I have too many poems and short stories and novels that are knocking on the door to leave any sooner, but lateley some minor medical issues have triggered thoughts about my age (65) and how many tomorrows there are.

I really enjoyed reading the poem until I got to the words "dead end." It was like hitting an invisible wall in the middle of the freeway and not being able to figure out what you crashed into.

But I do struggle with that fear, that there is an abrupt dead end. I found myself rewriting my fear into a line something like "reminding us that our love is as momentous as we choose it to be."

THANKS FOR CONTINUING TO SHARE YOUR NAMASTE WITH US.

@Vern - thank you for the thoughtful response... I don't mean to be so bleak but this one has a specific meaning but can be applied liberally to love or life... sometimes not thinking about tomorrow can sustain things but at times it can keep you in something that is best left behind... I like your edit....
