Theme: Tomorrows promises: I had a thought about songs that spoke of carpe diem because tomorrow is a new day. It started when I’d randomly heard, “save tonight” by eagle eye cherry.
Understanding that today is fleeting and that tomorrow does not hold any promises these songs took me back to a line from dead poets society,
“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”
Excerpt from Save tonight:
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away it’s true
It ain’t easy to say goodbye
