SOMEDAY (WE'LL BE TOGETHER)

Official studio version


Your voice comes calling through the mist
I awake from a dream and my heart begins to drift
Tonight we're on our own
Tonight we're all alone
Oh-oh, tonight

Someday we'll be together
And the night will fall around us
This love will last forever
Someday we'll be together
Together

I can't sleep so I lay awake listenin' to the sounds of the city below
I get dressed and walk the streets but I got nowhere to go
Tonight it's you I miss
Tonight my only wish is
Oh-oh, tonight

Someday we'll be together
And the night will fall around us
This love will last forever
Someday you'll be mine

Tonight we're on our own
Tonight we're all alone
Oh-oh, tonight

Someday we'll be together
And the night will fall around us
This love will last forever
Someday you'll be mine
Woah-whoaaa
Someday you'll be mine
Woah-whoaaa (this love will last forever)
Someday you'll be mine
(Someday we'll be together)
(The night will fall around us)
(This love will last forever)
(Someday you'll be mine)
(Someday we'll be together)

Info

SOMEDAY (WE’LL BE TOGETHER) is a song written by Bruce Springsteen and released on The Promise in 2010. The above lyrics are for the official studio version of SOMEDAY (WE’LL BE TOGETHER) as released in 2010.

Composition And Recording

SOMEDAY (WE’LL BE TOGETHER) was written and recorded for the Darkness On The Edge Of Town album. Studio logs show that takes were recorded September 26 and 29-30, 1977 at The Record Plant in New York City. The version that was released on The Promise features a modern vocal take by Bruce and probably some other modern elements. This suggests that the song was never worked to completion during the 1977 studio sessions. The track also features backing vocals by the Alliance Singers (Tiffeny Andrews, Corinda Crawford, Michelle Moore, and Antoinette Savage), who contributed choir vocals on The Rising album, in addition to Patti Scialfa and Soozie Tyrell.
