about

House of Tomorrow is HOME PORT's second full-length recorded song cycle. Based in New York City, the tenor/alto/soprano trio is forging a fellowship with listeners, those who want meaning in music. Alto Meirav Eytan, soprano Christina Kay, and composer, accompanist, and tenor Porter Smith fulfill the ancient role of travelers of song and story as they fill up spaces with protest, romance, meditation, and mysticism.

lyrics

Your children are not your own
They are sons and daughters of life's longing for itself
Through you they come, but not from you
Though they are with you, to you they don't belong

You may give them your love, but not your thoughts
For they have their own thoughts
You may house their bodies, but not their souls
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow

Your children are not your own
They are sons and daughters of life's longing for itself
Through you they come, but not from you
Though they are with you, to you they don't belong

You may strive to be like them
But don't seek to make them just like you
House their bodies, but not their souls
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow

You may give them your love, but not your thoughts
For they have their own thoughts
You may house their bodies, but not their souls
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow
