If Tomorrow Never Comes

Apart de la Gabriela i, en la distància, la meva família, Renato Russo ha sigut un dels meus grans acompanyants durant aquests mesos. Com un amic. Aquesta és una cançó (molt coneguda) del seu CD de versions de cançons americanes. Aquests dies escolto el CD (The Stonewall Celebration Concert), i ahir un amic em va escriure dient que l'any que ve té el propòsit de fer exactament això.

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch him sleeping
He's lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark

And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would he ever doubt the way I feel
About him in my heart

If tomorrow never comes
Will he know how much I loved him
Did I try in every way to show him every day
That he's my only one

And if my time on earth were through
And he must face the world without me
Is the love I gave him in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed

So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much they mean to me
And avoid the circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell them how I feel

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you're thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

(K. Blazy / G. Brooks)
