I was listening to "Someday Never Comes" and I thought about it. What it is is a father talking to his son. Essentially, John Fogerty's father talking to him, and then at the end of the song John Fogerty talking to his son. It's a great song with killer lyrics but I don't understand why "Someday" never comes. If someone could explain that it would be great. Thanks.

Dear Friend:

I suppose that Fogerty is meaning 'never' at the same time he's saying 'someday'. He takes an imaginary day that would be exists anytime, someday... He could said 'anyday' too. For case is the same.

I think "Someday Never Comes" means sometimes parents knowns about sometings we don't understand at the time... but when we grow up, we just understand that things.... and remember

he says that someday you will understand. understand life in general. but that someday never comes, we can never truly know the meaning of life, we can only live it.

maybe, or it could mean not to put off things in your life by saying "someday i'll go to europe" because someday never comes.

I guess, John is referring to the attitude of many parents: If they don't want/cannot explain something to a child, they day: "You're not old enough to understand this. But someday, when you're grown enough, you will understand". However, in this song this "someday" when the grown child should understand this subject, never comes. So: Frustration.

It's about his parent's divorce and his father leaving the home. The second part of the song is about his own divorce and him leaving his son behind. I read that somewhere.

The point of the lyrics is that some things just can't be understood. His father tells him (and he tells his own son) that "Someday you'll understand." But the chorus tells us that the "someday" will never come; therefore, you won't understand because some things just don't make sense...

i sort of think it has some connection with the whole Mari Gras album. It was the defintive end of CCR and maybe John is trying to say the "Someday with never come" for the band , about how there breaking apart


just a thought
