Someday
by Plain White T's

[Chorus]
Someday we'll all get started
Someday we'll have what we wanted
Someday we'll want what's better
Someday we'll all live forever

Oh, oh

Someday we'll all reach higher
Someday we won't be so tired
Someday we won't say never
Someday we'll all be together

Oh

What if we all could just agree
(What if we all could just agree)
To live together in the world, in perfect harmony?
And what if we all could find a way
(What if we all could find a way)
To live a better life today?

[Chorus]

Oh, they will never understand us
Oh, wouldn't want it any other way
Oh, they won't always stand against us
Oh,

What if we all could just agree
(What if we all could just agree)
To live together in the world, in perfect harmony?
And what if we all could find a way
(What if we all could find a way)
To live a better life today?

[Chorus]

Someday we'll all reach higher
Someday we won't be so tired
Someday we won't say never
Someday we'll all be together

Oh,

Someday we'll all live together
Someday we'll all live together
Someday we'll all live together

Amber Massey

This song is magic ❤️

@Music Lover what a lovely sentiment. I don't think you're alone in liking music that isn't mainstream for your generation. I think that there are many folks like me and you who like the feel of music created by artists in earlier decades. I wouldn't spend a lot of time trying to build a case for one decade over another, rather enjoy the fact that we live in an age where that choice is possible. You're not limited to what you own or what is played on the radio - you can build your own playlists. A unique phenomenon giving every artist a shot at being heard and creating a following. And you can pick and choose what resonates with you and fits your mood, or even better, transcends your mood. It's magic... Just like this song 😁

You said you like Green Day - so I'll give you a story about them I hope you'll like. Clearly they make great music, I just hadn't had an opportunity to see them live until a conference I attended 6 or 7 years ago. They played at a stadium and, to my delight, Blondie was their opening act. A couple of songs into Green Day's set the sound system fails. And it's POURING rain... Billie Joe could've called the show, but he didn't. He unplugs his guitar and plays an acoustic show for the handful of fans willing to come out of the dry stadium onto the field to listen to him play. I was clearly one of those fans and, cold and soaking wet, that was still one of my favorite concerts ever... The experience reminds me of one of my favorite quotes -- life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain 🎶🌧️💃

You seem pretty self aware so you'll know if this advice applies to you - if playing music means the world to you, you need to pursue it. Unless the pain prevents that at this time, in which case I hope that you are able to have the treatment to alleviate the pain sooner rather than later. Following your passion in life is so important! Note - there will be roadblocks and obstacles along the way, so if you are determined to make this your life's mission, you'll find a way to navigate those difficult times and find joy, laughter, and contentment in those tough times. If you approach life as a great adventure, you'll always feel like you've won. And that's the secret to success... To find happiness where you are in life as much as you possibly can.

I ❤️ this song ... Namaste.

Amber Massey, You have a delightfully elegant way with words Amber. It’s been really refreshing to see that, and it was just hitting home with me while I was reading that. Thank you for teaching me a thing or two. I’d suspect that you would have a lot wisdom and knowledge in these types of endeavours, so I appreciate your understanding of me.

Music wasn’t always my heart and soul surprisingly. It sorta gradually emanated through me like chills going down my spine. It started when I was around 14, although I always listened to music as a kid, it just didn’t start hitting me in that way of oneness and transcendence of the music until around then. But then it only started to amplify as the years went by, until I wanted to teach myself piano and guitar like Tom most likely did, only I was more of a later bloomer lol.

Recently, I have had an ganglion cyst on my wrist though, 😕 which comes from repetitive motions and what not, but it’s been limiting to when I play guitar, as it can hurt a lot when my hand needs to twist or something. Hopefully I will be able to have that fluid drained out soon though so I can get back to playing my guitar more enjoyably with ease as my cathartic release. 😌

I know exactly what you mean. In the end nothing can top just the soul experience of just listening to music, and it can be so breathtakingly empowering sometimes. I always want to keep being better though, but sometimes my daily dose of music juice is all I need to traverse me through the day you know?

I’m just glad that we have a mutual understanding of this concept of music Amber. We seem a lot more intellectual and musically enlightened, and believe me when I say, I’m glad a soul like you exists.

I only wish I had of been born earlier, as the majority of all my favourite music ranges from the 90’s to 2010. I stopped listening to mainstream music years ago, because I realised that the music that resonates the most to me is in an obscure minority, and I never wanted to let my true musical taste get brainwashed or conformed to pop culture. I’ve always felt like I’ve been incompatible with my generation, like the odd one out, that thinks a lot differently, with different perceptions of music and life..Until I met you.

@Music Lover I'm glad that you've found such fulfillment through playing music. I will always love music, it's as vital to me as breathing air, but I learned quickly that playing music isn't as satisfying to me as that feeling of completeness that comes from 'being one' with the music as it's being played live (or even while listening to the recording). I love the transformative power of music, the way it resonates body, mind and soul.

To your point above, I do expect Tom gets to a similar transcendental state while writing music - I imagine it's a very fulfilling experience for him. I feel fortunate I feel that way when I hear it so it works out well that way lol.

We all make choices in life, and there is pleasure that comes from doing what you're good at (even if that means having less time to spend immersed in what you love).

Music Lover

Amber Massey, Well, that is all quite something Amber! It seems like you have had quite the journey then, and are a retro music collector, which is something I admire, as these days that sorta thing is fizzling out due to social media culture and what not, but I’ll take it that you’re a fair bit older than me, as I would of only been around 5 when Stop was releasing lol.

You have a nuancing way with words I will say, but yeah, I know where you’re coming from on that. Through listening to the T’s in the chronology of their music, it did seem like their was more flat out raw unfiltered emotion being emanated in the earlier material, but then, maybe part of the forced vocals/triplets, and compression coming into the later material was just apart of the evolution, but then again, I always felt that it was still their with the legendary Green Day, which obviously are incomparable, because Green Day have done a lot more albums for starters, and are more generalised, but I do feel like the T’s got caught up in the mainstream bubble and starting putting out what they thought would of been musically appropriate for the time, and not what was necessarily in the heart, because sadly that heart doesn’t always sell.

Needless to say though, when I was going through my T’s marathon, I came onto Wonders of the Younger in around October, and I don’t know about you, but after hearing it for the first time, I just always thought that it suited this month. I gathered some Halloween vibes in certain segments of the songs, and I think I had a more enjoyably resonating experience because of that correlation with the month and general atmosphere of the songs.

Haha, that is well received Amber, but let’s just say that I went through an over-excessively, avid, musical phase at some point or another, and thus led me to learn songs by ear, (gradually of course). I learnt from others in the beginning, but then over time I just started to develop a musical pitch. Heck, you could say a lot of that development just came from listening to music religiously, but all in all, my piano skills have surely diminished since that phase transpired. Once I started making decent progress on the guitar, then I just kinda wanted to stick to that, as I always wanted to be better at guitar from the get-go as it is, because over time, I started gravitating towards it naturally, because I think the pure simplicity of just playing the guitar while singing just started to suit me more, as I was obviously changing to, but I do hope to get back into good musical shape again someday, because I went through apathetic phases as well, and so I wasn’t as consistently coordinate because of it.

In all honestly though, I wish I could just go back and relive that musical phase all over again at it’s peak, because I remember having that hunger in me, everyday wanting to just learn a new song and surprise myself, like Tom probably does everyday, but it was maintaining that spark which was the hardest part, because I found other hobbies that I was naturally good at, (I evolved per se), but I always wanted to be the best at music though, but I only had so much musical talent, whereas I had more natural talent in other things that I didn’t care to be as good at, so I had to make a choice, and I guess you could say that I decided that balance was the key, but hopefully you can see where I’m getting at with this Amber.

I’ve always been a perfectionist and had OCD, and as a lot will say, it’s both a gift and a curse, so I can understand why you would of said that I have a gift and stuff, but to be honest Amber, I don’t, you’re just as talented and capable as me, I’m sure, it’s just once I get my heart and soul into something, I can be diligently relentless until I prove to myself what I wanted to prove, but where I excel in some things, I lack in others a lot more than others due to cognitive dissonance, and other deficits that I have, but I really did appreciate you saying that though. ❤️ I don’t hear that a lot these days, so believe me when I say it mean’t a lot! And of course I know you mean well, but to put things into perspective, music has been my saving grace that has helped me to continue rolling with the punches, because I have no idea what would of happened to me without it.

@Music Lover there aren't many bands with songs that pop into my head spontaneously, however, the T's are one of those bands for me. The only similar experience I had was when I first started listening to the Beatles back in high school. I watched the movie A Hard Days Night, then the movie Help and then I acquired some CDs and then the Anthology came out and I found some of their albums on vinyl.

It was much the same process with the T's - I knew their hit song for over a decade from the radio before I caught them live. The music captured my attention, but it still took several years to go from being impressed with the live shows to collecting their music and listening to all the tracks and honing in on hidden gems, so to speak.

I purchased the bulk of their CDs after Parallel Universe came out, and I put in Stop first and listened to it on repeat for several months. I spent a lot of time with that album before slowly listening to some of the others. Each song was honest - that's what I liked about it - there was raw emotion driving the lyrics and music. Some of their songs on later albums feel a bit forced, like Tom wasn't in the mood to write a pretty song so he just added a line or a chord that didn't fit so he could express his true feelings. I definitely prefer when Tom is writing songs from his heart - sure the love songs, but even the ones that aren't love songs. For instance I really like the Wonders album - which as luck would happen I ended up listening to last. And there are songs like Pause I love from American Nights. And this song Someday from Big Bad World.

I still prefer to see live shows - thanks to YouTube - they're fun because some of the shows were recorded over a decade ago so it's a bit like traveling through time lol. But I also love the recent recordings of these classics that Tom makes each week - it's him and his guitar and they sound amazing!!!

You are lucky you can play piano by ear - that's something I always wished I could do. I took many years of piano lessons and would need sheet music and plenty of rehearsal time to be able to play. You have a real gift to be able to play what you hear in your head!!
