#81 Someday

#81 Someday – The Strokes

Not the most acclaimed of tracks from media-darlings The Strokes, but I like it. A simple sentiment but none the less endearing for that. The third single from ‘Is this It’ it crept into the US top twenty (top thirty in the UK). The video is best forgotten for obvious reasons (just because someone’s famous doesn’t make them good, boys!)

Lyrics

In many ways, they’ll miss the good old days
Someday, someday
Yeah, it hurts to say, but I want you to stay
Sometimes, sometimes

When we was young, oh man, did we have fun
Always, always
Promises, they break before they’re made
Sometimes, sometimes

Oh, Maya says I’m lacking in depth
I will do my best
You say you wanna stay by my side
Darlin’, your head’s not right
See, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I’ll be alright
I’m working so I won’t have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes

Oh, someday…

No, I ain’t wastin’ no more time

And now my fears
They come to me in threes
So, I
Sometimes
Say, “Fate my friend,
You say the strangest things
I find, sometimes”

Oh, Maya says I’m lacking in depth
Say I will try my best
You say you wanna stay by my side
Darlin’, your head’s not right
See, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I’ll be alright
I’m working so I won’t have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes

Oh, someday…

I ain’t wasting no more time
