Eventually

  • If only there could be another way to do this
    'Cause it feels like murder to put your heart through this
    I know I always said that I could never hurt you
    Well this is the very, very last time I'm ever going to

    But I know that I'll be happier
    And I know you will too
    Said, I know that I'll be happier
    And I know you will too
    Eventually
    Eventually

    Wish I could turn you back into a stranger
    'Cause if I was never in your life, you wouldn't have to change this

    But I know that I'll be happier
    And I know you will too
    Said, I know that I'll be happier
    And I know you will too
    Eventually
    Eventually

    And I know just what I've got to do
    And it's got to be soon
    'Cause I know that I'll be happier
    And I know you will too
    Eventually
    Eventually
    Eventually
    Eventually

  • Claire Griffiths from Derby UkThis song was played at my ex husbands funeral back in February 2020. He was sadly murdered on New Year’s Day by his new partners ex husband. Our teenage daughter very carefully chose this song as she used to listen to Tame impala with her dad often but somehow the lyrics have such a deeper meaning and fit so deeply with how she wanted to verbalise her feelings. my ex husband did suffer with his mental health and at times did think we would be happier without him and he would happier gone. It takes a lot of strength for me to listen to this song now but every time I do I get goosebumps and feel tremendous calm. Thank you Tame Impala for giving us this
