This is no time or place to wake up
but there are things to do and space to take up
I'm in love with something I dreamed about
I'm in love, but it's not really there
I'm in love with something I said in a prayer.

Tomorrow is a harsh mistress
that I don't want to wake up to.
which I force myself to do
I guess I'm a harsh mistress, too.

I'm what you might call
the once and future nothing at all

I believe in something the cat dragged in
I believe but I think it's a crime
I believe in what tasted all right at the time

Tomorrow is a harsh mistress
but that won't matter anyhow
'cause I stayed in bed all day
who's the harsh mistress now?

Hey yeah, that's right
'cause yesterday took all night
that's right, you bet
yesterday's not over yet.

With each passing day, a world destroyed,
all the things I've worked so hard to avoid
the future's unwritten, so they say
and I'm just trying to keep it that way
OK? OK?

Tomorrow is a harsh mistress
that I don't want to wake up to
which I force myself to do
I guess I'm a harsh mistress, too.

I'm in love with something I dreamed about
I believe but it's not really there.
I'm in love with something I dreamed about
I'm in love but it's not really there.
