"One Day You Will" as written by Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, Hillary Scott and Clay Bernard Mills....
You feel like you're falling backwards
Like you're slippin' through the cracks
Like no one would even notice
If you left this town and never came back
You walk outside and all you see is rain
You look inside and all you feel is pain
And you can't see it now

But down the road the sun is shining
In every cloud there's a silver lining
Just keep holding on (just keep holding on)
And every heartache makes you stronger
But it won't be much longer
You'll find love, you'll find peace
And the you you're meant to be
I know right now that's not the way you feel
But one day you will

You wake up every morning and ask yourself
What am I doing here anyway
With the weight of all those disappointments
Whispering in your ear
You're just barely hanging by a thread
You wanna scream but you're down to your last breath
But you don't know it yet

But down the road the sun is shining
In every cloud there's a silver lining
Just keep holding on (just keep holding on)
And every heartache makes you stronger
But it won't be much longer
You'll find love, you'll find peace
And the you you're meant to be
I know right now that's not the way you feel
But one day you will

Find the strength to rise above
You will
Find just what you're made of, you're made of

But down the road the sun is shining
In every cloud there's a silver lining
Just keep holding on (just keep holding on)
And every heartache makes you stronger
But it won't be much longer
You'll find love, you'll find peace
And the you you're meant to be
I know right now that's not the way you feel
But one day you will

One day you will
Oh one day you will

    General Commentbasically, it's saying that one day things will be better whether you want to see it right now or not.
    eventually, everything will calm down and it'll all be okay.
    'somewhere down the road' things will turn around and all the pieces to the puzzle of life will fall perfectly into place ^_^

    My OpinionAwesome song! This is one of Lady-A's best. This song completely captures the pain of breaking up with someone and knowing that it will hurt for a while, but encourages faith in better days to come.

    General CommentI love this song. I don't know if it's about a relationship necessarily or about someone struggling in general...but I look at it the struggling way. In that sense, it's a great inspirational song. Something to listen to when you're really down and need to hear that line, "Just keep holding on...I know right now that's not the way you feel. But one day you will."
