One Of These Days

Album: Everywhere (1997)
  • Used to chase that boy home from school
    We called him freckled faced red headed fool
    He was different he wasn't cool like me
    Sticks and stones didn't break any bones
    Bet we never left well enough alone
    And one day he ran away from home you see
    And I passed him as he walked away
    And in his eyes I heard him say
    "One of these days you're gonna love me
    You'll sit down by yourself and think
    About the times you pushed and shoved me
    And what good friends we might've been
    And then you're gonna sigh a little
    Maybe even cry a little but
    One of these days you're gonna love me"

    Patty Sue was a small town beauty
    I took one look at her and had to pull her to me
    Lord knows she should've seen right through me
    When I promised her the world
    But at seventeen, you only want one thing
    I left her standin' there with my high school ring
    Innocent tears in the pourin' rain
    As I walked away
    And I still see her in my dreams
    And to this day she's whispering

    "One of these days you're gonna love me
    You'll sit down by yourself and think
    About the time you turned from me
    And what good friends we might've been
    And then you're gonna sigh a little
    Maybe even cry a little but
    One of these days you're gonna love me"

    Now everybody stands up
    The congregation sings
    It's a song of sweet forgiveness
    And as the chorus rings
    The wind blows clear my memory
    The pages start to turn
    Then suddenly I'm singin'
    The moment that I learn

    One of these days I'm gonna love me
    And feel the joy of sweet release
    One of these days, I'll rise above me
    And at last I'll find some peace
    Then I'm gonna smile a little
    Maybe even laugh a little but
    One of these days I'm gonna love me Writer/s: KIP RAINES, RICHARD BELMONT (MONTY) POWELL, MARCUS HUMMON
