Someday Soon – New Faces Vol. 2


Well we raced each other downhill on the sidewalk
And we raced each other, us against the world
And we promised not to bow
We made a solemn vow to keep our independence flags unfurled

And the story of our spirit left us stranded
Each one hiding in our separate ways
But carrying a candle to keep the fire burning
To bring us here on brighter days

And someday soon made a promise I will follow
Someday soon while I try
Someday soon told me
“take this cup of empty hope up to the well that’s dry”
Where there’s just enough of Someday Soon to satisfy

Now you have done all the adventures I had dreamed of
But I have run a different path but just as fine
But both of us have missed, we haven’t closed the distance
On destination: peace of mind

And it seems as if we’re always half together
There is no happy ever after magic wand
But lightning pulls the thunder
The distance pulls a wonder to bring us farther on



I just love this song. Something about the lyrics brings up a lot of visuals for me. When I read the lyrics literally I don’t really understand them – but when I listen to the performance and let myself go with the music I see a home movie of someone progressing through the years and seeing little vignettes of happiness with a friend.
