"Before Tomorrow Comes" as written by Myles Kennedy and Mark / Tremonti....
I couldn't sleep I had to listen
To a conscience knowing so well
That nothing comes form indifference
I look inside of myself

Will I fond some kind of conviction?
Will I bid the hero farewell?
Will I be defined by things that could have been?
I guess time will only tell
I guess time will only tell

So don't let it be
Before tomorrow comes
Before you turn away
Take the hand in need
Before tomorrow comes
You could change everything

I curse my worth and every comfort
That blinded me for way too long
Damn it all I'll make a difference from now on
Cause I'm wide awake to it all
Cause I'm wide awake to it all

So don't let it be
Before tomorrow comes
Before you turn away
Take the hand in need
Before tomorrow comes
You could change everything

Does anyone care it ain't right what we're doing?
Does anyone care it ain't right where we're going?
Does anyone dare justify how we're living?
Does anyone here care at all?

So don't let it be
Before tomorrow comes
Before you turn away
Take the hand in need
Before tomorrow comes
You could change everything

We could be so much more than we are
We could be so much more than we are
We could be so much more than we are
Oh this much I know

    General CommentI think this song is about how some have good lives and have what we need, but were blinded by the things we have and can not see the suffering in other countrys, and how we should do something to change it.

    "So don’t let it be
    Before tomorrow comes
    Before you turn away
    Take the hand in me
    Before tomorrow comes
    You can change everything"
    This chorus descibes i what I mean perfectly.

    "I curse my worth and every comfort
    That blinded me for way too long
    Damnit all I’ll make a difference from now on
    Cause I’m wide awake to it all
    Cause I’m wide awake to it all"

    These Few lines describes the rest of what I was saying.

    General CommentThis song is saying too better yourself, before it's too late. "Before tomorrow comes, before you turn away" and the most best too my point "We can be so much more than we are"

    General Commenti posted these lyrics, cause they're all i could find as of the day the album was released. i have noticed several errors, so if someone wants to fix them, please do. i haven't bought the album, so i can't find the correct version anywhere.

    otherwise, its a kick-ass song, and and even better album.

    General CommentOne of my favorites from the new album (which is completely amazing).
    I remember in an interview Myles mentioned his interpretation of it. He said the term "Before tomorrow comes," sort of became a mantra for him as of recently. He says he was tired of himself sitting on his butt not doing anything about life, so he needed to make some change; make every day seem like it's the last.
    Amazing, inspirational song.

    General CommentOne of my favorites from Blackbird.

    "I curse my worth and every comfort
    That blinded me for way too long
    Damnit all I’ll make a difference from now on
    Cause I’m wide awake to it all
    Cause I’m wide awake to it all"

    It's about breaking out of your comfort zone because you've spent too long there. Making a difference is a hard thing to do because it requires that. And being wide awake to it all is seeing something that's wrong and making it right.

    By the way these lyrics
    "Does anyone care it ain't right what we’re doing?
    Does anyone care it ain't right where we’re going?"
    should be:
    "Does anyone care anyway what we’re doing?
    Does anyone care anyway where we’re going?"

    General CommentThis song is about doing something meaningful in life and i agree with Zero Angel about breaking out of your comfort zone...You shouldn't stick with something forever because it's "comfortable" you have to try new things or else you'll miss out on living.
