You're sulking through the city rain
You're late for work
and scrambling towards the station
And you ask yourself,
"Well, when will I finally
get a little reprieve"

And in the subway car
an attractive person smiles at me
and I deprecate
We are children of divorce,
so please give us a break;
And speaking of a break,
when will we get that break?
I'll tell you when!

Someday, but not today
Someday, but not today

In the darkness of my life
you're the light
A bulb, blooming delicately
and burning bright
Budding against nature
and all of its blight

And I don't want to fight
I just want to be
a big part of your life

Someday, but not today
Someday, but not today

We think too much
We feel too much
We are too much
We take too much
We don't want to die;
Don't be so guileless!

We just don't...
We just don't want to exist

Someday, but not today
Someday, but not today
Someday,
(And if you're ever feeling alone,
this song will be here to hold you)
but not today
Someday,
(And if you're ever feeling alone.
this song will be here to hold you)
but not today

    General CommentIt's kinda surprised that no one has commented on this one already..

    Well, I think this song is basically about someone having a hard time and asking for a break, and knows that although he may have to wait, he'll get that break eventually
