Rob Drabkin just released his latest music video, which is for his song "Someday" and to celebrate we asked Rob to share the story behind the song with us. Here is the story:

The message of "Someday" is to remind us that love is ever-present. We can find it in everything, and we can also create it in the smallest most unassuming moments of our lives. All we can do is keep being kind, and keep being the best version of ourselves that we can be. Here is the story of writing "Someday."

Sometimes when I'm working on a song, a new song idea sneaks in and sets me on a whole new course. I sat down to work on an up-tempo groove that I had been struggling to complete. I slowed down the pace to re-work chords, and next thing I knew, I had the intro riff of "Someday." I walked to the kitchen the following evening and I sang out "Someday love is gonna find us." It was spur of the moment lyric and thank goodness I was recording it. I still go back and listen to that moment. It was a time of loss and heart break me for me. This lyric summed up what I was feeling, but it also gave me a whole lot of hope. It told me that sometimes it's best to let love, life and relationships out of our control and have faith that the right thing will come.

My goal was to make the song about a universal love, not just a romantic type. Even though the song had romantic leanings at first, I liked the idea that love exists in all moments of life and we just have to shift our perspective to see it in our own lives. We find it by creating, adding to the world, pursuing our passions and purpose. We share it with each other through laughter smiles and sympathy. That idea brought on lines like "holding hands on a bridge" and "playing ball in the rain." I must have written 20 verses of "someday love is gonna find us, _____ fill in the blank…" I narrowed the song down to my favorite lyrics that I felt covered the song the best. And that's the version of "Someday" you hear today.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen and watch for yourself right here!
