"Some Day" as written by Anthony C. Battaglia and Brent Smith....
Someday, when I'm older
And they never know my name
Somehow, if I'm honest
I can never feel ashamed
Maybe I was wrong to
Hold you up so high
Now I know I've lost you
To the feelings I kept inside

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

Someday, when it's over
And you never show your face
I hope you'll remember
How I tried to make you a place
And so now, I move on
To keep my piece of mind
In someway, I've failed you
But I just ran out of time

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time

I'm not sure that you hear me
I'm not sure that you look at me the same
I will always be attached to you
But I'm never gonna feel the same

I don't know if it felt like
I wanted you here, the way that I wanted you last time
We're not on the same page, you don't even know me
Cause you never took the time
No, you never took the time

Someday, when I'm older

    General CommentI usually don't like reading these type of comments, they usually make me want to shoot myself...

    but this song is so perfect for me,

    I am going throught the same thing...

    He's tried to make someone feel wanted or secure,

    These lines specificaly speak to me...

    Maybe I was wrong to
    Hold you up so high
    Now I know I've lost you
    To the feelings I kept inside

    and this....

    In someway, I've failed you
    But I just ran out of time

    I think any socially challenged idiot like myself can relate this to having feelings for someone and not being able to tell them, and wanting to tell them, almost knowing they'll be there, you know you hang out with her, you get all the signals, you mess around, hell, her parents even let you sleep in her room,
    but it never goes beyond that where you want it to go,
    And then it goes away,... I watched it happen....
    I lost my chance...

    And he lost his chance.....
    I can relate to that beyond measure.....

    on 103.3 the edge in buffalo, Brent was talking about how this was his favorite song on the album, and how he didnt think alot of the listeners would get it, but I totally get it...


    I'm sorry about the whole Emo moment, I promise, I dont think it'll ever happen again....

    General Commentwell ill break this down as much as i can...
    k well when he says someday when im older and they never know my name, he's saying that eventually hes gonna get older and nobody is gonna remember him for anything hes done. hes just gonna fade away.
    somehow if im honest, i can never feel ashamed seems to me like hes saying if i tell you everything i wanted to tell you and didnt lie to you then i wont have to feel like i was doing you wrong. and that he just feels like he has to be 100% to her.
    maybe i was wrong to hold you up so high is like, yea... i know you are amazing and maybe i thought you were too great and that you could never live up to my expectations that i had for you. and in that... im wrong. i love you and im sorry. ya know?
    now i know i've lost you to the feelings i kept inside is kinda saying that he feels like he held back and he didnt want to. and because of the things he kept from her, that she can never be the same to him and is in a way, "lost"
    k... new verse... haha i gotta take a quick break...

    General CommentCHORUS...

    i dont know if it felt like i wanted you here the way that i wanted you last time.
    pretty simple if you ask me.
    hes saying that hes in love and that its hard to measure his feelings for her as time goes on. but things can end up kinda sucking...
    we're not on the same page, you dont even know me cause you never took the time.
    ouch. well i think hes saying that hes so in love (i could be completely off track about this but...) that hes pissed cause the chick hes digging isnt into him and that the whole thing is screwed because she didnt want to spend time getting to know eachother and let the feelings grow.

    moving on...

    General Commentseems like yea what yall said...he feels in love with someone he barely knows...and she doesn't even notice him. things like that are just chemical emotions but sometimes they can seem so real.

    General CommentThis was the lead singer's favorite song to write on the "us and them" cd. He said it was very natural and almost got it on the first try while freestyling.

    General Commentidk where the first post came from...
    to me the song gives me a i-love-you/i-screwed-up vibe, and changes at the chorus to i-know-better-now-but-i'm-still-sorting-my-feelings one.
    Correct me if I'm wrong. I love the song too much to not want to understand it.
    btw, sry for choppy post... damn PSP

    General CommentI think he's in love with someone who he wants to be with/be committed to, but the other person rejects the idea of commitment. Maybe this person kind of led him on, but every time things got serious she pushed him away, or she didn't give him a chance to express his feelings. I'm not sure, maybe it went on like that for awhile until he got to the point where he said enough is enough and he had to move on ("to keep my piece of mind"), although he still feels partially responsible for it not working out ("In some ways I failed you"). The whole situation is saddening and frustrating, but he's saying maybe in time he'll understand why it happened the way it did, and he can look back and say even though he lost her, he's fully accepted it and he will be alright. Maybe, some day, when he's older.

    That's my take on it. My favorite song on the album by far.

    General CommentI think hes in love with a friend of his, and he wants it to be more, but shes just wanting to be friends...and hes saying that shes gonna look back some day and know that he was always there for her but then it will be too late cause hes moving with his life..

    General CommentI think jrock23 said it best for me...I was going to say the same thing...Ive been in that type of situation before, and its never easy, and the end results almost never work out how you want them to. Thats just the way it is, and things will never be the same I guess.
