Someday I'll listen to my heart
And know it's tearing me apart.
The echo tells me I can't stay
For one more minute,
For one more day.

Someday I'll open up a door
That leads me to some distant shore.
I'll listen only to the sound
Of my bare feet
Upon the ground.

I'll taste the wine in Kingston harbor,
I'll sing a song in old San Juan.
I'll kiss a girl in Barcelona,
Then I'll be free
To carry on.

Someday I'll find out how to give
And when I do I'll start to live.
I'll cast my eyes up to the sky
And catch a star
And wave goodbye.

I'll taste the wine in Kingston harbor,
I'll sing a song in old San Juan.
I'll kiss a girl in Barcelona,
Then I'll be free
To carry on.

I'll taste the wine in Kingston harbor,
I'll sing a song in old San Juan.
I'll kiss a girl in Barcelona,
Then I'll be free
To carry on.

I'll taste the wine in Kingston harbor,
I'll sing a song in old San Juan.
I'll kiss a girl in Barcelona,
Then I'll be free
To carry on.

    It means a man's gotta do certain things on the pathway to freedom and fulfillment.

    By the way,the lyrics listed for the second line of the first verse are seriously wrong. It should be, "and know it's tearing me apart. "
