About Someday

"Someday" is a song from Disney's 1996 animated feature film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It was written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz and originally recorded by American singer and actress Heidi Mollenhauer in her film role as the singing voice of Esmeralda. It was one of three recordings, along with "In a Place of Miracles" and "As Long as There's a Moon", that were discarded during the storyboarding process to be replaced by "God Help the Outcasts." The directors Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise both desired a quieter song for Esmeralda's scene inside Notre Dame cathedral. While not featured in the body of the film, a cover of "Someday" is heard over the closing credits. Selected as the lead single from the film's soundtrack in 1996, "Someday" was recorded by all–male R&B group All-4-One for the North American release, while British female R&B trio Eternal recorded their own version for the British English version of the song which received international release throughout Europe and Oceania. Mexican singer Luis Miguel recorded a Spanish version for the Latin American market, retitled "Sueña", which became a major hit. The Italian version was recorded by Neri per Caso, retitled "Quando". The youngest Celtic Woman member Chloë Agnew covered this song for her solo album called Walking in the Air and her first Celtic Woman album. Jackie Evancho covered this song for the target deluxe version of her album Dream With Me. The Korean version was recorded by R&B trio Solid, which was released in Korea as a bonus track of the original soundtrack album. In 2016, the song was included in the musical version of the film as performed by Ciara Renée and Andrew Samonsky as Esmeralda and Phoebus. And Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith from Inside Out performs this song from the 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation movie - Trolls.

Someday, when we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and let live

Someday life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
And greed will not pay
God speed this bright millennium on its way
Let it come someday

Someday our fight will be won then
We'll stand in the sun then
That bright afternoon

Till then, on days when the sun is gone
We'll hang on
And we'll wish upon the moon

There are somedays, darken rivers
Say we haven't got a plan
But I'm praying for something better
Is the one thing we all share

Someday, when we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray someday we may yet
Live to live and let live

Someday life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
Greed will not pay
God speed this bright millennium

Let it come
We will shall find a moon
One day someday soon

One day, someday soon
