The Strokes - Someday

[Verse 1]
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 stand by my side
Darling, your head's not right
Ah, 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 wasting no more time

(Trying, trying)

[Verse 2]
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"

Despite having a classic nostalgic theme in the lyrics about "the good old days" this is one of The Strokes most upbeat and positive songs. The music video for the song features The Strokes at a bar having fun, as well as a game of the American game show "Family Feud" played between the Strokes and the legendary indie rock act Guided by Voices. "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..."
