"A great example of how you can write a song and not know what you're writing about. A song called 'Tomorrow' is a detailed account of my mother's funeral. But I had no idea when I was writing it." - Bono, Rolling Stone 2005

Won't you come back tomorrow
Will you be back tomorrow
Won't you come back tomorrow
Can I sleep tonight

Outside, somebody's outside
Somebody's knocking at the door
There's a black car parked at
The side of the road
Don't go to the door
Don't go to the door

Going out
I'm going outside, mother
I'm going outside

Won't you be back tomorrow
Will you be back tomorrow
Won't you be back tomorrow
Can I sleep tonight

Who broke the window
Who broke down the door
Who tore the curtain
Who was it for
Who heals the wounds
Who heals the scars

Open the door
I'm going out there
Open the door

Won't you be back tomorrow
Will you be back tomorrow
Won't you be back tomorrow
Can I sleep tonight

'Cause I want you
I want you
I want you

Oh boy, stop your crying
Soon it'll be death that's dying
Oh boy, stop your crying
Soon it'll be death that's dying
Open the door
I'm going out there
Soon you'll be a man
Oh boy, stop your crying
