So we raced each other down hill on the sidewalk
And we raised each other, us against the world
And we promised not to bow, we made a solemn vow
To keep our independence flags unfurled
So when the battles of the spirit left us stranded
And each went hiding in our separate ways
But now carrying a candle to keep the fire burning
To find us here, in brighter days

Someday soon made a promise I will follow
Someday soon's why I try
Someday soon told me take this cup of empty hope up to the well that's dry
Where's there's just enough of someday soon
To satisfy

Now you have done all the adventures I had dreamed of
And I have run a different path, but just as fine
Ah, but both of us have missed, we haven't closed the distance
On the destination peace of mind And though it seems as if it's always half together
There is no happy-ever-after magic wand
The lightning pulls the thunder, the distance pulls the wonder
That calls us farther on

Someday soon made a promise I will follow
Someday soon's why I try
Someday soon told me take this cup of empty hope up to the well that's dry
Where's there's just enough of someday soon
To satisfy

Now if heaven is perfection, I'll get my deepest questions answered

Like a child tears into wrappings to a Christmas tune
But in the big hall, let there be a bright, red ribbon
That stays wrapped around the mystery
Of someday soon

Someday soon made a promise I will follow
Someday soon's why I try
Someday soon told me take this cup of empty hope up to the well that's dry
Where's there's just enough of someday soon
To satisfy
