Someday

Written By: Mike Errico

Someday

I'm gonna get where I'm going

Someday

Somewhere past the blindness of my faith

I keep my eyes on the plans I've made

and Someday

I'll get there

Past the smiles that crack like frozen lakes
Under children's figure skates

I am going

Past all of my own mistakes
1000 more I've yet to make

I am going

I'm gonna get there

I know it
