  • One of these days, the ground will drop out from beneath your feet
    One of these days, your heart will stop and play it's final beat

    One of these days, the clocks will stop and time won't mean a thing
    One of these days, their bombs will drop and silence everything

    But it's alright, yeah it's alright, said it's alright
    Easy for you to say
    Your heart has never been broken
    Your pride has never been stolen
    Not yet, not yet, one of these days
    I bet your heart 'll be broken
    I bet your pride 'll be stolen
    I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet
    One of these days, one of these days

    One of these days, your eyes will close and pain will disappear
    One of these days, you will forget to hope and learn to fear

    But it's alright, yeah it's alright, said it's alright
    Easy for you to say
    Your heart has never been broken
    Your pride has never been stolen
    Not yet, not yet, one of these days
    I bet your heart 'll be broken
    I bet your pride 'll be stolen
    I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet
    One of these days, one of these days

    But it's alright, yeah it's alright, said it's alright
    Yeah it's alright
    Don't say it's alright, don't say it's alright
    Don't say it's alright
    One of these days your heart will stop and play it's final beat

    But it's alright, easy for you to say
    Your heart has never been broken
    Your pride has never been stolen
    Not yet, not yet, one of these days
    I bet your heart will be broken
    I bet your pride will be stolen
    I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet, I'll bet
    One of these days
    One of these days
    One of these daysWriter/s: DAVID ERIC GROHL, TAYLOR HAWKINS, CHRISTOPHER A. SHIFLETT, NATE MENDEL, PAT SMEAR
