Someday Never Comes (4:00)

Cover of Platinum

From Platinum and 50 other releases

Along with “Sweet Hitchhiker,” this is the most popular track on their 7th and last album, “Mardi Gras.” John said this was written out of his regret and sadness that he had re-ssued the pain which he had felt from his own parents’ divorce, onto his own young son, when he divorced Josh’s mother.
About his divorce, he sings “When Daddy went away, he said, “Try to be a man, and someday you’ll understand.”
Then about his own divorce, he sings, “Think it was September, the year I went away, for there were many things I didn’t know. And I still see him standing, try’n’ to be a man; I said, “Someday you’ll understand.”

Well, I’m here to tell you now each and ev’ry mother’s son: you better learn it fast; you better learn it young,
‘cause, “Someday” never comes.”
