"Song for Someone" as written by and Matt Scannell....
This is a song for someone all alone
This is a song to play when they are gone
To help you to begin again even though you've just begun
This is a song for someone

This is a song for someone wide awake
This is a song to give a little break
To help you slow down a bit now that the day is done
This is a song for someone

Someone who laughs
Someone who cries
Someone whose heart beats just like mine
Another soul who soldiers on
Oh, this is a song for someone

This is a song for someone on the line
This is a song to help you kill the time
May you come home again sooner than the son
This is a song for someone

Someone who laughs
Someone who cries
Someone whose heart beats just like mine
Another soul who soldiers on
Oh, this is a song for someone

I can't believe there's nothing more to feel when all our time is done,
And I hope to see the uncertainty leave before we're gone.

This is a song for someone looking back
There is something good that someone said you lack
May it make you whole again if only while it runs
This is a song for someone

Someone who laughs
Someone who cries
Someone whose heart beats just like mine
Another soul who soldiers on
Oh, this is a song for someone
Yeah, this is a song for someone

This is a song for someone I don't know
May your days get brighter as you go
I guess it's never easy to love what we become
This is a song for someone

    General CommentThere are two sections of this song that I was unsure about:

    "May you come home sooner than the son (sun?)" -- I wrote "son" because I thought it was a reference to coming home sooner than the "prodigal son". Coming home sooner than the "sun" didn't make sense to me, unless he meant to come home before the sun sets.

    The other lyric "I can't believe is that the full to feel when all the time is done" -- I listened to this repeatedly and still can't quite fully make out what he's singing. It sounds clearly like "I can't believe is" and then it gets muddy and then is clearly "when all the time is done."

    If anyone can make this out, please submit a correction.
