Someday, I know I’ll find that road
And I, will pay back all I’ve owed
Somehow, I’ll bear that heavy load

I know, I’ve never been the best
Never quite kept up with the rest
But someday you’ll see I’ve reached that crest

And then we’ll smile
And toast our glasses high
And the world will know
You and I

Till then in spite of all I’ve done
I’ll keep on reachin for the sun
And someday we’ll be number one

About Lyrics and Someday by Bob Seger

The lyrics for Someday are made up of the words, verses and background chorus for the popular 1972 song by Bob Seger. Like a lot of songs, the lyrics to Someday have both direct meanings and metaphorical context hidden within the song's words. All of the meanings are only truly known by the creators of the lyrics for Someday - Bob Seger and any of the writers who worked with them on the song.

If you have an interest in the structure of words and phrases, you can dissect the lyrics to Someday by Bob Seger in multiple ways. The word "lyric" itself derives from the Latin word lyricus, with the actual English word lyrics applied to the definition "words set to music" listed in Stainer and Barrett's 1876 Dictionary of Musical Terms. Continuing the chain, the Latin word lyricus derives from the Greek word λυρικός or lyrikós. This somewhat means "poetry accompanied by the lyre" or "words set to music." You can easily see that by looking at the background of the word lyric, that the "lyrics to Someday" means the words set to the music of Someday, or poetry accompanied by the lyre played by Bob Seger. The singular form "lyric" is still used to mean the complete words to a song. However, the singular form lyric is also commonly used to refer to a specific line (or phrase) within a song's lyrics. Hence, by this analysis of word structure, you could say that the lyric to Someday and the lyrics to Someday are both one and the same thing. None of this talk about the word Lyrics is really relevant to fans of Bob Seger who came here looking just for the lyrics to Someday, but we feel it is still fun to learn what's behind commonly used words and lyrics in songs.
