Sometimes you just want to tell someone how you feel about them, but you can’t work up the nerve. Still, you tell yourself, you’ll tell them someday...someday is what keeps us all going sometimes. The promise of tomorrow...

Not bad for a little pop ditty, huh? 😅 Here’s another one that moptop and I have worked up for you guys. We shared the harmonies, Dominick added an excellent backing track, and we think it turned out really well. Hope you guys enjoy!

Someday

(v1)
For so long, I’ve been dreaming
Wishing and hoping for you
For so long I’ve been scheming
Wondering if you want me too

(v2)
Sometimes I feel so helpless
I wonder if you really care
Sometimes you leave me breathless
And all I can do is stare

(Bridge)
Could it be so
How I long to know
Could there be
A place in your heart for me

(v3)
If there was, I’d never leave you
I’d love you in that special way
I’d be true, never deceive you
Maybe I’ll tell you someday

(Instrumental)

(Bridge)
Could it be so
How I long to know
Could there be
A place in your heart for me

(v3)
If there was, I’d never leave you
I’d love you in that special way
I’d be true, never deceive you
Maybe I’ll tell you someday

(Coda)
Someday

I love it when you guys get together. Nobody does this stuff better. The Beatles can't any more so it's down to you guys! I can't fault this in any way. It's great to hear.:)

What joy that you guys found each other. This is another lovely enjoyable song.

I know it's already done, but I would change just one word.

"I wonder if you really care" >- I would say 'even care'. It's a nit, but I thought I'd toss it out.

That's great! Like you jumped in a time machine and yoinked a sheet off the desk of a 60's music publishers desk. Very enjoyable indeed.

Thanks Chris!! The fabs were the ones who started it all, so it’s an honor to carry on a small piece of their legacy, and most importantly, we’ve been having a blast doing it 🙂

Hey Andrea, glad you liked! I totally agree about us finding each other, it’s been amazing. I never could have dreamed I’d meet someone who would help me bring so many songs to life like this.

I actually like “don’t even care”, it probably would fit better with the longing for love angle. Maybe something to consider for the live performance haha

Hiya Al, thanks for checking it out! Yeah, sometimes I’m amazed at how we’re able to create these sounds. A lot of credit goes moptop’s awesome production of course, he always manages to give us that vintage feel. I wonder how this one would’ve fared back then 😅

This is a great song - it almost feels more like early Beach Boys -

you should definitely try mixing hard left/right to emulate that early Beatle sound!

Yeees, I love this! Super Beatlesy, I actually forgot I wasn't listening to The Beatles! You guys have really got an ear for it, I'm glad someone is still making music like this.
