A young woman (on dark beach) trying to escape her
horrible past leaves her lover so baffled and
distraught that he cries out to God.

Tomorrow, you will be free...



Please don't stop me, my love, let me lie down and kiss

the ground, let me taste the taste of freedom on my

tongue and remember my past no more.


Let my tears mingle with the sand and the sun

comfort my soul, for the earth has opened up her

mouth and swallowed my past, no more pain, no

more fear, only sweet music shall ring in my ears.


Look down on her, O Lord, look down and see your

daughter weeping in the sand, she ripped out her

heart and has casted it into the sea, she said,

"Tomorrow, I will be free."


But the ground where she laid is now drunken

with her past, affliction and confusion, the sea has

spew out her heart and the sun has hidden his face.


I tried to comfort her and said,

"Come my love, come, for tomorrow is stil yet to come,"

but she cannot be comforted. Her body's covered

with wounds I cannot see and her words I do not



Night is fallen and my soul grows weak,

but I will not leave her, I will cuddle her in my

arms and whisper in her ears,

"Tomorrow, you will be free,
