“Somewhere” – performed by Barbra Streisand (From West Side Story)

Someday Somewhere
We’ll find a new way of living,
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere

There’s a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us somewhere

There’s a time for us
Someday a time for us
Time together with time to spare
Time to learn
Time to care

Someday
Somewhere
We’ll find a new way of living
We’ll find there’s a way of forgiving
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere

There’s a place for us
A time and a place for us
Hold my hand and we’re half way there
Hold my hand and I’ll take you there
Somehow
Someday
Somewhere

In the musical West Side Story, a song that really became popular off the production is the one entitled “Somewhere” and one version of it was performed by Barbra Streisand.

The piece has very simple lyrics but if you read between the lines, you will realize how deep they actually mean. For someone who just lost a special person in his life, the three words “somehow, someday, somewhere”, which are all in the song are really very meaningful.

After the death and the basic cremation of a loved one, people will often tell you that you should move on and live your life as normal as possible again. This is a very difficult task. Many people often pretend to be okay on the outside but they are still deeply hurting inside.

This song is like the inner voice of the person. The message here is that even though they are trying their best to move on and get on with their lives, they are still hoping and praying that there will be a special place, a special time, and a special destination where they will meet with their departed loved ones in the future.

This is actually a journey towards happiness. A difficult yet satisfying journey because you are anticipating for that special moment that you will share with each other again. You know that there will come a time that you will be together again. You may not be sure when and where it will be, but you have trust that it will happen.
