"Someday" as written by and Donald J. Stevenson Jerry A. Miller Jr.....
Tomorrow will come.
Though I'm not afraid of today,
That's for sure.

You laughed at me,
For the last time.
You've got to understand,
It just wasn't in the plan.

To me, your life has ended,
When I said goodbye to you.

Ah ha ha, you laughed at me,
For the last time.
Now there's nothing left,
Tired of playing games.

Your mind is lost,
In a world that wasn't made for you,
Though I feel the same way, too
I still got things to do.

    General CommentVastly beautiful, extremely underrated song. Since I'm probably going to be the only one posting here, I'll present my interpretation of this somewhat cryptic piece...

    This person condemns his friend or breaks up with a significant other for not having a meaningful life or goals and playing games. (It just wasn't in the plan--Your mind is lost, In a world that wasn't made for you--tired of playing games, laughed at me last time etc.)

    The person feels similarly about his life having little meaning, but thinks he can carry on (I still got some things to do)

    The only question now is, whether this person will pursue these shreds of goals or meaning now, because he's certainly (not afraid of today), or will he put it off in hopes of discovering new, better opportunities? (Someday, tomorrow will come) Kind of like an indecisiveness due to feelings of hopelessness.

    Anyway hope this gives whoever may read this some incite. I certainly hope someone else besides me reads this and appreciates the Grape as much as I do! Peace.

    General CommentIt is a disgrace that this song only has one comment!

    Moby Grape are one of the most underrated bands EVER.

    Someday, I believe, is their best song. When Bob Mosley's voice comes in at 1:49 it is simply breathtaking.

    General CommentI talk to Peter Lewis sometimes, but he didn't write this one. Somebody who knows Don, Jerry or Bob who seem to be listed as the songwriters should ask them if they remember what the meaning was. I'll accept the first poster's guess until that happens. I agree, though..MG is so underrated it's ridiculous, and they are responsible for more quality per square inch than any other band, in large part due to Bob's vocals, Jerry's guitar, Peter's songs, Don's drumming, and the very amazing talents of Alexander Spence. A concentration of talent like you'll find nowhere else.

    General CommentBeautiful song - never really cared to analyse it, so much as be swept away by it; a lovely mesh of harmonies and guitars. When Bob Moseley comes in solo at the end, I could die right there.

    A breath-taking gem from an album full of them.
