"Someday We'll Know" as written by Danielle Brisebois, Gregg Alexander and Debra Holland....
Ninety miles outside Chicago
Can't stop driving
Don't know why
So many questions
I need an answer
Two years later you're still on my mind
What ever happened to Amelia Earhart
Who holds the stars up in the sky
Is true love once in a lifetime
Did the captain of the titanic cry

Someday we'll know
If love can move a mountain
Someday we'll know
Why the sky is blue
Someday we'll know
Why I wasn't meant for you

Does anybody know the way to Atlantis
Or what the wind says when she cries
I'm speeding by the place that I met you
For the ninety seventh time tonight

Someday we'll know
If love can move a mountain
Someday we'll know
Why the sky is blue
Someday we'll know
Why I wasn't meant for you

Someday we'll know
Why Sampson loved Delilah
One day I'll go
Dancing on the moon
Someday you'll know
That I was the one for you
I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
I watched the stars crash into the sea
If I could ask God just one question
Why aren't you here with me

Someday we'll know
If love can move a mountain
Someday we'll know
Why the sky is blue
Someday we'll know
Why I wasn't meant for you
Why Sampson loved Delilah
One day I'll go
Dancing on the moon
Someday you'll know
That I was the one for you

Seeing you in February was great
Cliches all come true 'time heals all wounds'
I went to get us our ninth drink
And you ran out the door with another guy
I woke up on the floor with my shoes on
A smile on my face and I didn't even care

    General CommentHe found the perfect girl and she dumped him. He's still heartbroken. This is the only song that puts me on the verge of tears. I fell hard for a girl, she decided to date someone else, and I was crushed. That was the lowest I have ever been. Soon after, I heard this song and it hit me like a ton of bricks.We eventually reunited and it still didnt work, but I had closure.This tune reminds me of the power of a song and how it can impact you. That was a horrible time in my life but one that I learned a lot from. And this song will always be part of me. The group didn't last long but they had this one song I could relate to that impacted me.

    General CommentI love this song.
    It is pretty self explanitory.
    I love this part;

    "I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow
    I watched the stars crash in the sea
    If I could ask God just one question
    Why aren't you here with me, tonight!?"

    Beautiful.

    General CommentI love this song, it really makes you think about certain people that have been in your life.

    I think it was really fitting on the film A Walk To Remember when he's dancing with her, you wouldn't think of it as that time of song which you could slow dance to, I do now tho, It would be a good one *Keeps that in mind*

    One of the most played on my Ipod
    Great song =]

    General Commenta great hoping song.I always hope me and my ex will get back together again someday,although it seems so impossible coz we're not meant to be for particular reason.but there's always hope and I think it's the right song to express it.

    General CommentI love this song! It always reminded me of my ex, and then he sent it to me one day. MixMasterMatty, you are a romantic, not a pussy. Don't ever live in fear. Go for it!

    General Commentthe part ' why i wasn't meant for you' was probably his frustation of why he couldnt hook up with the girl.. and tried to accept the truth ... no matter how hard he tried he still had that hope that the girl would eventually realize that he was thee One fer her (someday you'll know i was the one for you).. it is a great hoping song...
    oh yeah. are the new radicals still together?!
