Someday Lyrics - Nickelback

Review The Song (26)



How the hell did we wind up like this?
Why weren't we able, to see the signs that we missed
And try turn the tables

I wish you'd unclench your fists, and unpack your suitcase
Lately there's been too much of this
But don't think it's too late

Nothing's wrong, just as long as
You know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when

Well I'd hope that since we're here anyway
That we could end up saying
Things we've always needed to say
So we could end up staying
Now the story's played out like this
Just like a paperback novel
Let's rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a Hollywood horror

Nothing's wrong, just as long as
You know that someday I will

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)

the guy is dead | Reviewer: phoenix | 12/19/13

I just saw the vid again. the guy got killed, you can see he is a ghost when he stand on the spilled milk but he doesn't leave any footprints as the girl did when she left the apartment. then she got killed in the car crash and they reunite in the afterlife. watch the video and you'll see.

review | Reviewer: kryston | 9/22/13

i agree with the reviewer from 5/22/07 it would make no sence for her to stand there for a second then walk away without him if they where both dead they would walk together right? right so she's obviuosly alive

very clear. | Reviewer: phoenix | 8/29/13

This lyrics are as clear as water. Obviously the guy screwed badly when he was alive. He passes and to make things right, he tries to save her from death. Something that seemed inevitable. Then they make things right in the afterlife.

WOW! | Reviewer: Cj | 8/27/13

man did that song hit home, it reminds me of the time when my ex walked in on me and another Girl. she was so heart broken that she killed herself he next day, so this song is my way of telling her how sorry I am for what I did to her. I wish she knew how much I love her and that not a day goes by that I don't think about her. she was such an amazing person and the sweetest girl you could ever meet, this ones for you Baby! I love you :)

Shes not dead | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/5/11

For those who say she dies, it looks like she doesnt. If you watch closely, the people watch her leave. They stare at her as she walks away from the crash. And she doesnt see him, she only feels his presence through the hug.

i agree that the man is dead because when you the women is paking up her suitcase it is the shirt with hawii on it and at the end where it says "man died in tragic brige accident" in the picture he is wearing that same shirt. so i think she was grieving over him and he dosn't know he is dead.

Hot | Reviewer: kim | 6/1/09

This song is one of the best songs that Nickelback has sang/preformed. Others like Rockstar, Gotta be somebody, Photograph, If everyone cared, and Never Again are hot songs by Nickelback. I'd take this over Tim Mcgraw, Garth Brooks, or Taylor Swift.

Hmm... | Reviewer: Namine | 4/20/09

I don't think the guy knows he's dead; or doesn't know what he did (hence "the signs they missed") to make her upset; in his eyes she's just ignoring him when really she thinks he's long gone. this can go two ways: either he's dead or there's a symbolic meaning to his 'death.'

If he really is dead in this video (and its not symbolic of anything) then she's grieving over his death. He doesn't know he's dead which is why he's trying to make her stop and runs after her. She obviously doesn't see him (his footprints arent seen when she steps through the milk and then he does; she couldn't see him in the rearview mirror even though he was running behind the car) not sure what the 'exit only' part meant... uhh... when the huge truck crashed into her car and she died, she was finally able to be with him (someday somehow we're going to make it alright)

but i feel like there's a deeper meaning to all this... death could symbolize a lot of things. If he was 'dead' to her.. that could mean they broke up, he doesn't listen to her, he doesn't seem to care about her... etc. Maybe the lyrics are what the girl is saying to him. It's really hard to understand... but with the newspaper article saying he died it probably is that he's dead and they get back together in the afterlife.. just trying to think of it in a different way.

nickelback review | Reviewer: whatever | 4/9/09

a great song. Not sure if they copied How you Remind Me or not, but still has a great sound to it. The video is chilling. It doesn't go along with the meaning of the lyrics though, but it is a oddly meaningful music video.

It's gotta be here and now | Reviewer: Tafhim | 1/30/09

Well I think going towards the concept of the video the Band would be a mistake because they make the Videos purely with the Idea of making things interesting. I'd prefer going with the straight idea given by the lyrics itself. I agree with the Chad Kroeger comment on this but would like to make things a little bit clear in case of that's what Chad really meant and made two of us. Well I think it actually means that people who just think about making things happen and keep on living in a dream world about that are not gonna make that special day come because they're gonna think that as long as the dream stays the day stays. But if you wanna really make that day come then you have to do what you honestly think you should do "Right here, right now."

Meaning of Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/28/07

I agree that he is dead as one of the previous reviewers stated. However, I believe that she died as well, and her spirit walked towards him and they hugged each other in the afterlife. No one notices them, and the newspaper article about her death has not yet been written. I agree with the reviewer of 10/17/07.

The Real Meaning to This Song | Reviewer: no one important | 10/17/07

The guy is obviously dead in this song, I don't need to explain why this is obvious. The woman is alive as she's getting into her car and driving away, and his "spirit" is following her. Then, she gets hit and KILLED by the truck. Her ghost appears (it materialized, meaning it wasn't real). Plus, nobody seemed to notice her walking away from the scene. She died, and now, since her boyfriend is dead too, they can be together in the after life. VOILA.

about the video.. | Reviewer: mike vasquez | 8/10/07

I think the video is saying that no matter what happenes things will be ok. Wether in life or after death. They will be happy and together

Yer all wrong o_o | Reviewer: Uhm... | 7/28/07

This song means, and DO NOT Fuss with me, CHAD the person who wrote the song said it means..
It's like

Your always telling someone, Someday I will..
Someday we'll do this and that and this, I promise..
but Someday never comes.So it's kinda
A way of saying
Sorry, Baby, It wont ever happen...
