"Someday (I Will Understand)" as written by Mariah Carey and Ben Margulies....
Nothing seems to be the way that it used to
Everything seems shallow, God give me truth, in me
And tell me somebody's watching over me
And that is all I'm praying's that

Someday I will understand in God's own plan
And what he's done to me
Oh, but maybe someday I will breathe
And I'll finally see, I'll see it all in my baby

Don't you run too fast my dear, why don't you stop?
Just stop and listen to your tears they're all you've got
It's in you, you see somebody's watching over you
And that is all I'm praying's that

Someday you will understand in God's whole plan
And what he does to you
Oh, but maybe someday you will breathe
And you'll finally see, you'll see it all in your baby
You'll see it all in your baby

No moment, will be more true
Then the moment I look at you
It's in you, you see somebody's watching over you
And that is all I'm praying's that

Someday you will understand in God's whole plan
And what he does to you
Oh, but maybe someday you will breathe
And you'll finally see, you'll see it all in your baby
You'll see it all in your baby, you'll see it all in your baby
You'll see it all in your baby

    General CommentMy friend (who is obsessed with britney) showed this song to me and i liked it...even though it was britney. It's just a really pretty song. I just hope that she's a good mother to that baby. The fact that she dedicated to a baby that's not even born yet shows that maybe Britney is calming down a bit...maybe.

    General CommentMaybe she is, maybe she isn't. I love Britney, she really is talented. -nodnod- It's about her baby, her unborn child. I think she'll make a wonderful mother.

    General CommentI never saw this song as 'to' her baby. I always saw it as (call me crazy for saying this) Britney talking about life...and (here it comes) the 'meaning of life'. It seems like she's saying that she doesnt know what life is all about and what it's point is and why God has put us here, but all of it will make sense when she has (or anyone has) their baby. Their questions will be answered and they will know why God has put us here and what life is really about.

    I know in context of what I said the line "Just stop & listen to your tears, they're all you've got" makes no sense, but its a line I really like!

    I know a lot of you will think 'WTF?' at the concept of Britney singing about life and its meaning but thats my take on it.

    General CommentVery different from the usual Britney. Deep, soft. I liked it, even if it's not really catchy.
