"One of these days" as written by Oliver Stanley Murs, Julian C. Bunetta, Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner....
Is there something,
Oh anything will do my love
Asked the girl who's on the phone,
That's the girl who's never home
Say something good,
There's a wilderness of row,
That's the girl on the phone,
That's the girl who's never home

And your friends they were so close

So there you will stay
Forgot what I came here for
Passed some signs on the road,
Telling me I'm far from home
Friendships out here,myself I disappear
That's the girl all cold,that's the man who's looking on

And your friends they were so close
One by one they didn't stay,
Drift away like rolling sea
One by one they drift away
One of these days

One of these days
One of these days

And your friends they were so close
One by one they didn't stay,
Drift away like rolling seas
Day by day drift away
And the people who are close,
Are the ones who miss you'll the most
One of these days, ill blow away
One of these days, ill blow away

    General CommentMaybe the lead singer dated the subject of the song too. I definitely did.

    To me it's about a relationship in which the girl is more devote to her friends than the relationship itself. Meanwhile the guy in the relationship has no friends, is a relative isolate and due to this fact is seen to be strange and is eventually alienated. Meanwhile, the song's lyrics suggest that eventually all of the girl's friends with whom she is so close fade away one by one becoming nothing once again. He who is nothing, had nothing before and had nothing after already knows this problem too well as in the past he has had friends that drift away and realizes that in the end everyone is alone.

    General CommentAm I totally off the mark in thinking that this song has sections in it that sound very similar to Pink Floyd?

    There is also a song by Floyd called 'One of these days', although nothing like this one.

    General CommentSomehow I felt this song was about these two people who's friends have come and gone much like it always is. They both are hoping that one day they can both find someone who can stick around. He wants the girl to be that person for him but maybe he realizes no one ever does stick around for long. Sort of depressing but that's how it sounds. I love this song especially the beginning the singer's voice is brilliant!

    My OpinionSuch a sad song :(
    In my opinion i feel it is about isolation.
    Yes he is with a girl or maybe he just wants a girl and as time passes he sees that nothing happens. Everything is still the same,there is no way for him to express his feelings and his friends just as time passes by are becoming alienated...

    One of these days I'll blow away :(
