    Question What's the meaning of "sometime world"?

    What's the meaning of "sometime world" in this lyrics?


    I met a man who felt the same way,
    That the world had passed him by.
    Told to me all his troubles,
    That the world had made him cry.


    Life had kept him waiting,
    Regretting his pain inside.
    Had to feel underrated,
    And hated, besides.


    Life had kept him waiting,
    Regretting his shame inside.
    Had to feel underrated,
    And hated, besides.


    Sometime world, pass me by again,
    Carry you, carry me, away.
    (Repeat twice)

    It means nothing at all to me.

    (Say: "these lyrics".)

    Re: What's the meaning of "sometime world"?

    Song lyrics are often vague and sometimes make little sense. Personally, I interpret it as something which is gone, no longer existing. The songwriter is probably reminiscing about the past.

    You should have quoted the name of the songwriter or the name of the band (Martin Turner of "Wishbone Ash").
