Song of the Day #2,939: ‘Tomorrow Will Be Kinder’ – The Secret Sisters

hunger_games_soundtrackI haven’t listened to the Hunger Games soundtrack very often in the five years since its release. I bought it for a couple of Taylor Swift songs and a track by Pistol Annies, and I’ve given short shrift to the rest.

My mistake, I’m discovering, as a few of these tunes pop up on Random iTunes Weekends and turn out to be quite good. Here, Alabama-born The Secret Sisters deliver a mournful track, the sad delivery of which runs counter to its message of hope.

[Verse 1]
Black clouds are behind me, I now can see ahead
Often I wonder why I try hoping for an end
Sorrow weighs my shoulders down
And trouble haunts my mind
But I know the present will not last
And tomorrow will be kinder

[Chorus]
Tomorrow will be kinder
It’s true, I’ve seen it before
A brighter day is coming my way
Yes, tomorrow will be kinder

[Verse 2]
Today I’ve cried a many tear
And pain is in my heart
Around me lies a somber scene
I don’t know where to start
But I feel warmth on my skin
The stars have all aligned
The wind has blown, but now I know
That tomorrow will be kinder

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
A brighter day is coming my way
Yes, tomorrow will be kinder
