"Some Sweet Day" as written by and Mark Linkous....
You are, you are my daisy
You're my lullaby
Come sun up my dogs will fade to
Honeysuckle and clear moonshine
She was, she was my black earth
And the fire in my spine
Her magnetic waves gave birth
I was the one who loved you most
But you can't put your arms around a ghost

[Chorus]
Some sweet day you will be mine, you'll be mine
Some sweet day you will be mine, you'll be mine

We can, we can go home soon
Over the cold old sea
Her lover is in the old moon
Oh, to kiss her knobbly knees
Know she's laughing underwater
Her pain's gone away
We drank whiskey like our fathers
Born to return back to the clay
My love for you girl will never decay

[Chorus]

Where did you go, up to the sun?
Where are you now, part of the sea in every drop
Or did you simply stop?

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites off Dreamt for Lightyears.
    To me, I think it's written from the perspective of someone who died and their spirit still is in love with someone, and he's waiting for her to die so she can join him.
    Her knobby knees are when she's older.
    I think the second verse is describing the scene of his death. He went night swimming with her with a bit of liquor and ended up drowning.
    That's my take.

    General Commenti think it's the other way around- she drowned and he's waiting to join her.. it's a lot more consistent with the lyrics
