About All My Tomorrows

"All My Tomorrows" is a 1959 ballad with lyrics by Sammy Cahn and music by Jimmy van Heusen. The song was written for Frank Sinatra. It was introduced in the film A Hole in the Head where Sinatra sings it in the opening credits. Sinatra later featured "All My Tomorrows" on his 1961 album All the Way. Sinatra re-recorded it for his 1969 album My Way, in a new arrangement which Charles L. Granata considers to be superior to the original, and which AllMusic calls "lush and aching". Rolling Stone describes the song as "the poignant monologue of a man determined to turn his life around".

Today I may not have a thing at all
Except for just a dream or two
But I've got lots of plans for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

Right now it may not seem like spring at all
We're drifting and the laughs are few
But I've got rainbows planned for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you

No one knows better than I
That luck keeps passing me by, that's fate
But with you there at my side
I'll soon be turning the tide, just wait

As long as I've got arms that cling at all
It's you that I'll be clinging to
And all the dreams I dream, beg, or borrow
On some bright tomorrow they'll all come true

And all my bright tomorrows belong to you
