"Morning Songs" as written by Henry Binns, Sam Hardaker and Osmond Wright....
Days behold lives unfold
Can't move on so much untold
Shades of gold we've been sold
Been deceived while we believe

If today is all we see
Then tomorrow seems to me
Is just an illusion we believe

Strive to see hope to be
To be some small part of eternity

If today is all we see
Then tomorrow seems to me is
Just an illusion we believe

    General Commenti love this song bc it is so simple...first it starts off sounding a bit mellow and the lyrics of the first stanza are a bit of a downer, but it slowly builds up into a crescendo of happy instrumentalness which makes you look forward to the future, bc "if today is all we see, then tomorrow seems to me is just an illusion we believe"..i think it's about how people go about their daily lives, not really knowing why or how they got there and what their purpose is, but we all "strive to see, hope to be some small part of eternity."

    General Commentwe recently analyzed the hell out of sylvia plath's morning song in lit.. i think it's interesting they share the same title. it seems kind of like it could be a take on the poem. or at least parts of it. the poem seems to be about motherhood and not being around forever... plath kind of knew she was going to kill herself and not always be there for her kids, so "tomorrow seems...just an illusion we believe" for her............

    *shrug* i just like the song :)

    My InterpretationWe've been sold (collectively), deceived and believe in a pot of gold somewhere over the rainbow.

    BS is what I believe the author is saying we believe in. We've been sold BS that we is an illusion. I think it's self-explanatory: This life is it and the only life we will ever know. The rest is an illusion that we been sold and believe in

    He has yet to accept to this which is the reason he can't move on. He has accepted his plight so one can only hope to be some small part (or is it moth) of eternity.

    The instrumental epilogue is a transition into accepting this reality and it does a pretty convincing celebration to the life that we do have and so then it off to whatever this life holds for us. Getting the most out of being here for as long as that may be.

    Accepting this version of what awaits us is hard for most of us to accept but the illusion of another tomorrow can inhibited us from getting the most out of this life we are currently experiencing

    General CommentI love the Sylvia Plath version, but this one doesn't do much for me. I don't think they're related other than title.

    General Commentif today is all we see...then tomorrow seems to me...is just an illusion we believe.

    that is some powerful stuff i must say. I think he's trying to say that we have faith in tomorrow without actually even experiencing it. It could also possibly mean that we take "tomorrow" for granted...just assume that it will come cause we believe in it. I don't know, i'm probably over analyzing...this song is amazing.

    General CommentI think this song is about being present in the moment. If today is all we see and we are fully present in today then tomorrow doesn't even exist. If we are consistently present then there is no furture nor past.
