Tomorrow / Bokra

Tomorrow comes another day; happy with us, to give us joy. 
Plant life with expectations, love and hope wherever we go. 
Tomorrow, days will bring us together in goodness and peace. 
Oh, World! Together, together , together we’ll colour the universe with our songs.

Who says we can’t change the face of the world today? 
What do you say we erase darkness with the colours of the morning. 
Believe! At all the crossroads, the roads will smile for us; 
And no one, no one, will pass like a cloud in this life.

Whenever a morning gifts us with a rose, sun and a song; 
Whenever an eagle finds us at the tops of mountains; 
Dreams talking to us, a laughter calling for us. 
Oh, World! Together, together, together we’ll change the universe with our wishes.

Who says we can’t be the weapon for Conscience? 
To protect the lair of freedom, and guard its door? 
Believe! At all the crossroads, the roads will smile for us; 
And no one, no one, will pass like a cloud in this life.

Who says we can’t change the face of the world today? 
What do you say we erase darkness with the colours of the morning. 
Believe! At all the crossroads, the roads will smile for us; 
And no one, no one, will pass like a cloud in this life

Ref. We are the voice of goodness; we are the sun of the days. 
We are a new day; we are a banner for peace. 
We are the flute of love and the soul of music. 
We are a thousand and one nights from the East of dreams.

Tomorrow, the wings of love await us. 
Tomorrow will be better with us together. 
Open the doors for light, the night of sorrow will fade.
