Someday

We went to Red Rocks earlier this week to see Celtic Woman. Not everybody's cup of tea, I realize. But you put four gorgeous women with awesome singing voices on stage and I personally don't find a lot to complain about. Anyhow, there was one song that really got my attention, called Someday. I believe it's from the Disney version of the Hunchback of Notre Dame.

There is something very touching in the simple lyrics -- optimistic, but tinged with a certain sadness. It's wistful; and somehow strangely appropo for Singularitarians.

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
If we wish upon the moon

There are some days dark and bitter
Seems we haven't got a prayer
But a prayer for something better
Is the one thing we all share

Someday
When we are wiser
When the whole world is older
When we have learned
I pray
Someday we may yet live
To live and let live
One day, someday
