LYRICS

Hu huuu, hu huuu, hu huuu, hu huuu
Hu huuu, hu huuu, hu huuu, hu huuu (hu, hu huuu)

I think that you’re mad, you spend a lot of time in your head
I know that you’re mad, you spend a lot of time in your head
If you could come away with me, you should come away with me
You should have some faith in me

Tomorrow could be too late
I wish I could change the date
Tomorrow could be too late
If only you had some faith
Too young, too proud, too foolish
Too young, too proud, too foolish

You ask a lot of questions you have too much time on your hands
To hell with conclusions why should we make so many plans
So you should come away with me, you should come away with me
You should have some faith in me

Tomorrow could be too late (ahahaha)
I wish I could change the date (ahahaha)
Tomorrow could be too late (ahhh)
If only you had some faith (ahhh ahhh)
Too young, too proud, too foolish
Too young, too proud, too foolish
ahhh ahah, ahhh ahah, ahhh ahah, ahhh ahah
ahhh ahah, ahhh ahah, ahhh ahah

Tomorrow could be so great , I wish I could change the date
Tomorrow could be so great, if only you had some faith
Ahahahah, lalalala-ah-ahhh-ah-ahhh
Ahahahah, lalalala-ah-ahhh-ah-ahhh
Ahahahah, lalalala-ah-ahhh-ah-ahhh

MEANING

This “seize-the-day themed” song (according to cooking vinyl) was described in a Dolores O’Riordan interview given to billboard.com as “inspired by real-life concerns of adulthood, parenting and mortality. ‘It’s about the way we sometimes hyper over-escalate things in our minds, overthink about things…when sometimes spontaneity and just jumping in is better,’ O’Riordan explains. ‘Tomorrow you might not have that moment back again. So it’s really about moving on and also about kid of looking at the younger generation and how they worry about all kinds of silly things. They don’t think they’re silly, but when you’re older you know better.’
