Someday I will have a boat and call the boat my own.
Someday I will sail that boat and it will be my home.
Someday I will realize my dream, though it’s far away.
Someday and soon, but someday is not today.

Today it’s just my dream, of that glorious day.
Today I work and toil, there is no other way.
Today I have but words, my dream has no say.
Today I dream of better days, today is not someday.

Someday I will moor it, in that space right there
Someday I will sail it, with no worry and no care.
Someday I will fish and sail and swim all day.
Someday my heart will sing, someday is not today.

Today I pray and dream and wait until, someday.
