TODAY - sung and guitared by Eddy Satriya





I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover,
You'll know who I am by the song that I sing.
I'll feast at your table, I'll sleep in your clover,
Who cares what tomorrow shall bring?

Today while the blossom still clings to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine,
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joys that are mine today.

I can't be contented with yesterday's glories,
I can't live on promises winter to spring,
Today is my moment and now is my story,
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing.

Today while the blossom still clings to the vine,
I'll taste your strawberries, I'll drink your sweet wine,
A million tomorrows shall all pass away
Ere I forget all the joys that is mine today.

I dedicated this song to my friend Kuya Ike who just got operated for stomachache problems in Manila. Also for Maela Caringal whose got her Birthday on Valentine's Day tomorrow. And to all of my friends around the globe, including in FaceBook. Ike introduced this song to me for the first time in a freezing winter 1998/99 in Hachioji, Japan.
