The Future of the Future (Stay Gold)

This song is by Everything but the Girl, features Deep Dish and appears on the album Temperamental (1999).

The future of the future will still contain the past
Time goes slow and time goes fast
I can feel you looking back at me
To see how I've done
What is it inside you that makes you want to be my god

Well it's so bright tonight
It's so bright tonight
It's so bright tonight
Do you see those cars, those lights?

The future of the future will still repeat today
Time goes fast and fades away
And you say think of the old days
We could have them back again
Well I thought about the old days
They'll go bad like they did then

Well it's so bright tonight
It's so bright tonight
It's so bright tonight
Do you see those cars, those lights?

The future of the future will still contain tonight
The passage of day the passage of light
I'm not going home again
Tomorrow will never come
I'm not going home again
Tomorrow will never come

Well it's so bright tonight
It's so bright tonight
Do you see those cars, those lights?
Do you see those roads, these skies?

What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?
What ya gonna do about me now?

It's so bright tonight
