One Day Soon: Rod McKuen

I may not find the clover
but at least I will have tried
and who knows, maybe one day soon
I’ll catch the wave and ride.

From here to way out yonder
somewhere beyond somewhere
where love’s as familiar
as the back of my hand
and safe as breathing air.

I may not find the rainbow
but at least I’ll have a try
and who knows, maybe one day soon
I’ll tell the town goodbye.

And start off on my journey
to find what I must find
a place where love’s as real as the rain
and not just a word in the mind.

One day soon…
I’ll go with the giant’s up the hill
and love’ll come running after me
it will… it will… it will…

So, all the good luck pennies
where only made for those
who don’t believe that one day soon
they’ll learn what the giant knows.

That hope’s for little people
until love makes them tall
I’ll walk with the giants one day soon
I’m tired of being small.

One day soon… one day soon… one day soon…

– from the album “Rod Sings His Own”, 1965
