Someday Soon

Album: Drastic Fantastic (2007)


  • This song about making a to-do list of mind-expanding exercises was inspired by an argument Tunstall had with her boyfriend (and drummer) Luke Bullen. Tunstall told Paste Magazine October 22, 2007: "That song was written when I split up with Luke for a day. We had this massive argument, and the argument started when he said 'F--k' off!' So I did. Like 'Oh yeah? I will f--k off, then!' And he didn't call me for 3 days! He was following some kind of 'Men's Guide for When to Phone Women,' and I was like 'Oh, so that's it then? We're done. And that's how you're finishing it?' I wrote it in a letter and stuck it under his door, and I thought, 'I can either stay home and be depressed, or I can go have a beer and write a song.' So I chose the beer and the song." When Bullen finally dropped by to apologize, Tunstall had finished "Someday Soon." "So we're also considering splitting up for a few days in the future, just so I can get more songs done!"
