WHO'S GOT TOMORROW?
Words and music by Eric Wrobbel
It was on the strength of this song, "Who's Got Tomorrow?," more than any other, that Eric Wrobbel at age 18 went to Nashville with the confidence that he could, and should, and would write commercially successful songs. At one early demo session there, he was told that this song, "Who's Got Tomorrow?," ought to be done as a "calypso number." As ridiculous as that sounds, he probably would have gone along had he had any idea of what a "calypso number" even was, but he did not. With the clock running, his uncertainty was quickly viewed as obstinacy, and his subsequent reputation for "not being a team player" was sealed.
And so the song remains what it is and always was: a heartfelt teenager's lament about the ending of a key relationship and the nagging question, 'now what?' Tomorrow--once full of promise--is now just an unknown over which he has no control, and yesterday a door he will "never get back through."
