I don't want to see tomorrow too soon.
I don't want to say goodbye to today.
I hate to see the seconds ticking by
But I don't want to sleep time away.

There are things I should have done;
Things that I don't want to do.
And if I sleep, there are things left unfinished
And things I'm not looking forward to.

The later I close my eyes,
The longer today will be.
The longer it takes for tomorrow to come,
The happier I'll be.

And the later I go to sleep,
The more I can say
The later tomorrow comes,
The more time I have today.
