So we've already established the fact that
things are gonna be different in the future baby.
And you've reiterated the fact that you don't
want to get into something that's just gonna have to end later.
Now I know our lives are changing and I've seen
it coming for a while too, don't get me wrong.
And I've been going outta town baby it's gonna happen more,
we gotta be strong but now

While I'm gone
Just be a fly on the wall
You know
I'm thinking about you

Just wait and see
You gotta hear what I say
I'm in love with you
I'm not so far away

Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe
Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe

I know you gotta go to university and I'm just trying to make some cash to follow my dreams.
But please don't say we're too busy to give each other the time and support we need
I know we gotta work our jobs and make some money to get by in this expensive world.
Don't let that overtake the fact that before all that, you were still my girl.

While I'm gone
Just be a fly on the wall
You know
I'm talking about you

Just wait and see
You gotta hear what I say
I'm in love with you
I'm not so far away

Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe
Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe

Someday, someday
I'll know that you love me
Someday, someday
Sorry that I'm leaving
Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe

I'm in love with you
I'm not so far away

Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe
Someday, someday
I will be here babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe

Someday, someday
I'll know that you love me
Someday, someday
I just need you here with me
Don't have to try
Love will take us there babe
Someday, someday
I will be the one babe

Someday, someday
Look towards the sky babe
Someday, Someday
There's no need to cry babe
I know that you're always what I want babe
I will be the one babe
Someday,
I will be the one babe
Someday,
I just need you here with me

    General CommentWell I think that the verses really are self-explanatory. Actually: so is the song. I can't really look into this any deeper, because I probably wouldn't find anything. A nice, simple song - not a big fan of the repetition of "babe" in the chorus. "I will be the one babe" - sounds a bit sleazy.

    Oh alright, I'll shut up.

    General Commenti think its because there relationship is going through a rough stage and he know he cant be there and be "the one" for a while coz his going out of town alot but his just telling her that sooner or later he will come bak and they can get married or wateva. at least thats wat i think

    General CommentThe first few verses are self explanatory - they're both busy and he's going to be spending more time away from home, but he wants her to know that he loves her, thinks about her and that their relationship will work.

    I don't understand the repitition of "someday, someday I will be here babe / Someday, someday I will be the one babe." Isn't her already the one? Isn't that what he's telling her? Repeating 'someday someday' makes it sound like it's far off and not certain. I seem to think these choruses contradict the first 2 verses somewhat.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I thought that this song was about him trying to convince this girl that even though they won't see each other as much and they've got lives to start, let's say they're students parting ways, that when things sort themselves out, they could be together, but hadn't yet.
    What makes me think they were never together yet? "And you've reiterated the fact that you don't
    want to get into something that's just gonna have to end later."

    I'd rest my case there and walk away, but the one line that doesn't work, "Don't let that overtake the fact that before all that, you were still my girl."

    What? Were still my girl? Lost me.

    But yeah, other than that, I could justify it as a promise between two close friends that aren't ready to be something more yet.

    General CommentThis song means;

    Hes with a girl and complications have arised - where they have to go their seperate ways for awhile. He obviously loves her, and is asking her to wait for him because "hes not so far away" - as he has to get things done first, but he will return to her

    General CommentNo, I think these lyrics are wrong. It's supposed to be, "Don't let that overtake the fact that before all that, you're still my girl."
    Meaning, the most important thing isn't making money or sorting out their lives, but the fact that they love each other.
    If that makes sense.
    That's what I've always heard it as, anyway.

    General CommentThis song may be self explanitory, but applies to so many situations. Its just really about timing. Breaking up does not mean ending love. It just means ending the current relationship and the current situation. It doesn't mean you will never be together again. At least, I can be hopeful.
