A gypsy wind is blowing warm tonight
The sky is starlit and the time is right
And still you're telling me you have to go
Before you leave there's something you should know
Yeah something you should know babe

I've seen you smiling in the summer sun
I've seen your long hair flying when you run
I've made my mind up that it's meant to be
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea
You're high above me now
You're wild and free ah, but
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

Some people say that love's a losing game
You start with fire
But you lose the flame
The ashes smolder
But the warmth's soon gone
You end up cold and lonely on your own
I'll take my chances babe
I'll risk it all
I'll win your love
Or I'll take the fall
I've made my mind up girl
It's meant to be
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
It's written down somewhere
It's got to be
You're high above me
Flying wild and free
Oh but someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Someday lady you'll accomp'ny me
Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea
I feel it in my soul
It's meant to be
Oh someday lady you'll accomp'ny me

    General CommentI was a real late bloomer ... a high school geek who never got a date. It was only after high school that I started gaining more confidence and asking girls out. I was looking for the girl of my dreams, and I listened to songs like this over and over again. I eventually found the girl of my dreams ... and we were together 10 years, and then the "warmth was gone." Now I'm listening to songs like this again. Hopefully next time will be for a lifetime!

    General CommentThis song is so about the man who knows that regardless of the obstacles, roadblocks and other distractions that may prove otherwise, someday he and the woman of his dreams will be together because that's how it is supposed to be. And I was crying with laughter about the sister comment from a few years ago. Priceless!!

    General Comment"I'll take my chances babe, I'll risk it all. I'll win your love or I'll take the fall." Great line delivered with Bob Seger passion. I've had my heart stomped and I've won the girl; haven't we all? That's how we know we're alive! My favorite Seger song.

    General CommentI always loved this song, but a couple of years ago my husband passed away. I hadn't listened to it in awhile and I played it the other day. I have a new meaning for the song now, I think it means someday, when the rivers meet the sea, we will be flying wild and free together! I hope so because he was really my "soul mate" and I can't imagine eternity without him.

    General CommentMy husband played this song to me when we were in high school dating. He was 17 and I was 15. We had one amazing summer together then drifted apart as i was not interested in having a steady boyfriend to spend all my time with. I wanted to enjoy my time with my friends and just be a kid. Long story short 8 yrs later we found our way back to each other and he ask me if I remember this song and then he plays the song. Of course I remember I told him then he said when he played it for me years ago he meant every word of it with all his heart!!!! This song has an invaluable worth to me not only is it beautiful it is also a precious sentiment to my love story.

    General CommentWhat the heck is a "sounding sea?" All the lyrics sites state that. Isn't it "sound and sea?" A sound is a small body of water that can connect a sea to another body of water.
