First thing I remember was asking papa “Why?”
For there were many things I didn’t know
And Daddy always smiled; took me by the hand
Saying, “Someday you’ll understand”

Well, I’m here to tell you now each and every mother’s son
You better learn it fast; you better learn it young
‘Cause Someday Never Comes

The time and tears went by and I collected dust
For there were many things I didn’t know
When Daddy went away, he said, “Try to be a man
And, Someday you’ll understand”

And then, one day in April, I wasn’t even there
For there were many things I didn’t know
A son was born to me, Mama held his hand
Saying “Someday you’ll understand”

Ooh, someday never comes

Think it was September, the year I went away
For there were many things I didn’t know
And I still see him standin’, tryin’ to be a man
I said, “Someday you’ll understand”

Oh someday never comes

Hmmm
Hmmm
Hmmm

This song is about the cyclical nature of abandonment. Just as the narrator’s father leaves him at an early age, the narrator ends up abandoning his own son while he is still young. The chorus encourages the listener to learn this lesson soon since they too will experience abandonment.
