"Gonna Get There Someday" as written by and Beavers/ruttan/bentley/....
Well its been a year and there so much to tell
Been doing alright in spite of myself
Just wish I could stop feeling bad when I pray
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

Got that job I was dreaming about
Sometimes its tough traveling around
But who I wanna be still seems so far away
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

glad I told you all I meant to
While I had the chance
Cause every moment I had with you
Made me who I am

by the way, I met someone new
And wouldn't you know, she's a whole lot like you
Still I ain't ready to settle down in one place
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

well I guess I'll be moving on
I'll just leave these daisies by your stone
And momma, I still miss you every day
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

when that'll be, guess only God can say
But I know I'm gonna get there someday

    General Commentthis song deserves more reviews. he's one of the few artists me and my own mom both like - she likes how his voice sounds a little older despite his age - i like his style and the topics he chooses to sing about.
    I like to think this song is about how he lost his mom a year ago and how he still misses her but is seeing a new girl in his life who reminds him a lot of his mom (do we choose partners that remind us of our own parents?)
    Anyway good song, a good addition rather, as it has a lot of the same lyrics as "Distant Shore" which I like to think of as a song about moving on despite how hard it is and just knowing that eventually you'll get over it - whatever it is.
