"Someday" as written by Donny Edward Hathaway, Edward Theodore Riley, Aaron Robin Iii Hall, Ronnie Wilson, Billy B. Young and Edward Howard....
Wake up all you sleeping beauties
More are being born while you rest
They're pipin' music in
We all have to sin
Someday
We all have to sin
Someday.

Rommel wore a ring on his finger
He only took it off
when he flew his plane
Once he told me why
He said we all have to fly
Someday
We all have to fly
Someday.

The T.V. preacher can't be bothered
With those petty things
He stays a step removed so they say
He's pipin' music in
We all have to sin
Someday
We all have to sin
Someday.

Workin' on that great Alaska pipeline
Many men were lost in the pipe
They went to fuelin' cars
How smog might turn to stars
Someday
Smog might turn to stars
Someday.

Hold me baby, put your arms around me
Give me all the love you have to give
Tomorrow won't be late
We won't have to wait
Someday
We won't have to wait
Someday.

    General Commentwow o0ver 2 years an no one commented on this...wow...this is my favorite song on Freedom but the lyrics are wrong...well theyre all right except the first verse up above doesnt exist in the song (unless its in the live version...i never heard this song live so i wouldnt know) anyways...ill give you a verse by verse break down


    1st verse (not counting the fist verse up above): this guy likes to fly planes and he dies in a plane crash. in the lines "we all have to fly someday" flying is basically a metaphor for death. flyin to heaven. and it is sayng that no matter what we all have to die someday.

    2nd verse: this stanza basically says how everyone is going to heaven because we really all have to sin someday...i mean how many people never cursed ever in their entire lives? none. well unless they were babies or a small child. but thats besides the point...everyone has sined once in their life...it doesnt mean theyre going to hell.

    3rd verse: this is a tough one...it talks about the oil pips in alaska and how there many men working in the pipes lost their lives. i dont really know much about the alaskin pipelines but basically the message is that the lost and forgotten will be remembered someday.

    4th verse: this one talks about guy in his death bed asking his wife to hold him. (this part reminds me of when my dad died. and my mom and all are familly were around him for his final miniutes and my mom was holding him) the lines "we wont have to wait someday" means that someday in the future they dont have to wait to be together again because when she dies they will be together again in heaven.

    so to cap up this song is about death and heaven

    General CommentRommel was a WWII Nazi Germany general. He was famous for his tank, and defensive tactics. Eventually he tried to kill Hitler with others and when it failed he was killed (basically) so not just any guy!

    General Commentthanks for that clarification. If someone else hadn't explained who Rommel was I was going to.
