lyrics

In the beautiful tomorrow, sweeter than today
There will never be no sorrow
All the tears will pass away
There will never be a sunset or a fading of the day
In the beautiful tomorrow, oh, sweeter than today.

In the beautiful tomorrow, oh, sweeter than today
Where the sadness and the sorrow
can't take my joy away
Tears will always be memories
I'll be happy every day
In the beautiful tomorrow, so much sweeter than today.

In the beautiful tomorrow, oh the beautiful tomorrow
There will be no sorrow, all the tears will pass away.
There will never be a sunset or a fading of the day
In the beautiful tomorrow, oh, sweeter than today.

In the beautiful tomorrow, so much sweeter than today.
In the beautiful tomorrow, tears will pass away.
There'll be no heartache, there'll be no pain
In the beautiful tomorrow, so much sweeter than today.

In the beautiful tomorrow, In the beautiful tomorrow
There will be no sorrow, all my tears will pass away
There will be no dark clouds to block my gaze
In the beautiful tomorrow, so much sweeter than today.
