"Somehow, Someday" as written by and Richard Causon Ryan Adams....
I want to tell you something
That I shoud've, long ago
I wish that you and I had those kids
Maybe bought us that home
I wish that we were stumbling fast
Down on Irving and 14th Street
I wish that we were still in your room
In your bed and you were holding me

'Cause there ain't no way I'll ever stop from lovin' you now
There ain't no way I'll ever stop from lovin' you now
No, there ain't no way and I'm gonna try and show you somehow
Somehow, and oh someday, someday, someday

I dreamt that you and I were still young
Laughing like little kids
I'll never know just how bad it hurt
Or what I did
I wish that we were stumbling fast
Down on Irving and 6th
I wish that we were still making plans
But now, there's nothing to fix

But there ain't no way I'll ever stop from lovin' you now
There ain't no way I'll ever stop from lovin' you now
No, there ain't no way and I'm gonna try and show you somehow
Somehow, and oh, someday
Someday, someday, someday
Oh honey, someday
Someday ah

    General CommentThis is about regret and how he will always love this woman and he's going to tell her soon. I get the feeling he might not get round to it though and is left regretting not telling her, it's just how he says 'someday' that gives me that feeling.

    General CommentThis is one of my fav songs on Gold, I can really relate to the lyrics of this song having just been through a similar situation with a girl. I think it's about how he let this girl get away from him, and now it's too late to get her back now that she has kids. He lost his love becuase he didn't tell her how he felt, but he still has the memories and still holds on to the idea of getting her back someday, somehow.

    General CommentHe's just kidding himself with all this talk. He's making outlandish promises to himself. I think he knows he won't be able to carry through with any of this stuff.

    General CommentI think its about Carrie. She died, and now everything they planned won't ever happen. Even so, he won't ever stop loving her. Its so optimistic on the surface, but so sad underneath.

    General Comment"i'll never know just how bad it hurt
    or what i did"
    He didn't just not let her know how we felt, they were together at one stage in their lives and he wronged her and now he's full of regret and wants her back and wishes they were "still in [her] room
    in [her] bed and [she] were holding [him]."

    Typical man not knowing what he had until it was gone! ^_^
