Dave changed the song for "Come Tomorrow". I changed the painting.


References to the song in the painting are in bold.

"If I could fly at the speed of light I could get to Canis Major in 5,000 years

Butterflies and black and blue birds, I'll never be the same since I met you

Pennies thrown into a fountain

Make a wish, blow out the candles, take a breath

Not as troubling when you consider believers that would welcome the end of the world


Got a job and it pays me

I want love more than I deserve

I read the paper, makes me crazy

There's gotta be a way to make it work

Ashes, Stardust

Look at us, crawling out the mud


Let's go, around the block

We'll make the most before the jig is up

Dreamers, the big top

We'll never know, I guess never stop

Ashes, stardust

Look at us, crawling out the mud

I know that dying is scary to us

But everybody do it, 1-2-3


On the sidewalk, the dandelion is reaching from a crack up to the sun

Words can be a wicked tool

For twisting truth I wanna be true to you

Blood and bones, black holes and stones

All those things paved the way for you and me
