"This Time Tomorrow" as written by and Raymond Douglas Davies....
This time tomorrow where will we be
On a spaceship somewhere sailing across an empty sea
This time tomorrow what will we know
Well we still be here watching an in-flight movie show
I'll leave the sun behind me and watch the clouds as they sadly pass me by
Seven miles below ma I can see the world and it ain't so big at all
This time tomorrow what will we see
Field full of houses, endless rows of crowded streets
I don't where I'm going, I don't want to see
I feel the world below me looking up at me
Leave the sun behind me, and watch the clouds as they sadly pass me by
And I'm in perpetual motion and the world below doesn't matter much to me
This time tomorrow where will we be
On a spaceship somewhere sailing across any empty sea
This time tomorrow, this time tomorrow

    General CommentThis song sheds light on the beauty of the power to make new memories and to cherish old ones, the question of what the future will bring, and the brilliance of the opportunities it can offer us.

    It's a great representation of the invincible feeling you have when you feel your power as a human being in this world.

    It's especially moving for me because I am at a point in my life where I have experienced much, yet have so many amazing experiences awaiting me. As I listen to it, I find myself attached to the beloved memories of my past and eager to meet the intriguing future that awaits me.

    General CommentI respect:
    - people who did not like Darjeeling Limited
    - people who did
    - people who did hear this song before seeing the film
    - people who first heard the song in the film

    I think:
    - the song is good
    - the movie is good

    I hope:
    - anyone who disagrees by speaking in cruel generalities and arguing in ad hominem goes back to 4chan.

    General CommentOne of my favourite Kinks songs. I

    t's part of the Lola vs Powerman concept, where the singer in the band is on the plane on tour, but he's so high above the world, he forgets all thencorruption that there is down there. Separated from it's concept, it's still a beautiful song. It helps me when I'm down.

    hah, yes well, isn't that to be expected? It's a great song. I've loved the Kinks since grade school but it only makes me happy that people are discovering them from the Darjeeling limited. The more people that listen to them, the better.
