D
Countless winter nights ago,
A 
A woman shivered in the cold. 
Bm
Cursed the skies, and wondered why 
G
The gods invented pain. 

D
Aching angry flesh and bone, 
A
Bitterly she struck the stone 
Bm
Till she saw the sudden spark 
G
Of light, and golden flame. 

Bm
She showed the others, but they told her 
G
She was not fit to control 
D
The primal forces that the gods 
A
Had cloaked in mystery 

Bm
But she would not be satisfied, 
G
And though she trembled, she defied them 
D
Took her torch and raised it high 
A
Set afire history. 

CHORUS:
 
G                                Bm
Tomorrow can be brighter than to-day, 
Bm
although the night is cold. 
D                                A
The stars may seem so very far a-way...

G
But courage, hope and reason burn,
Bm 
In every mind, each lesson learned, 
D
Shining light to guide our way 
A                              Bm
Make tomorrow brighter than to-day...

G
Oh................
Bm
Oh................ 
A                      D
Oh... Brighter than to-day. 

D
Ages long forgotten now, 
A
We built the wheel and then the plough. 
Dm
Tilled the earth and proved our worth, 
G
Against the drought and snow. 

D
Soon we had the time to fathom 
A
Mountain peaks and tiny atoms, 
Bm
Beating hearts electric sparks 
G
So much more to know. 

[CHORUS]
 
G                                Bm
Tomorrow can be brighter than to-day, 
Bm
although the night is cold. 
D                                A
The stars may seem so very far a-way...

Bm
But courage, hope and reason grow 
G
With every passing season so we’ll 
D
Drive the darkness far away 
A                              Bm
Make tomorrow brighter than to-day...

G
Oh................

A                      D
Oh... Brighter than to-day. 

D
The universe may seem unfair. 
A
The laws of nature may not care. 
Bm
The storms and quakes, our own mistakes, 
G
They nearly doused our flame. 

D
But all these trials we’ve endured 
A
The lessons learned, diseases cured 
Bm
Against our herculean task 
G
We’ve risen to proclaim. 


[CHORUS]
 
G                                Bm
Tomorrow can be brighter than to-day, 
Bm
although the night is cold. 
D                                A
The stars may seem so very far a-way...

Bm
But courage, hope and reason bloom 
G
Across the world and one day soon, we’ll 
D
Rise up to the stars and say: 
A
Make tomorrow brighter than today 

G
Oh................
