This is a song where the video says it all. A very powerful and moving message about a young lad living with an aggressive and unpleasant father, One of These Days offers a message of courage in the face of adversity. Songwriter Sven Fredriksson (from Mansfield not Malmo) explains:
“It’s about overcoming adversity and rising above life’s many difficult challenges, and is written for all who have faced, or who face adversity of all forms. My experience happens to involve childhood physical abuse, which I faced, and rose above myself. This is reflected in the lyrics.
What’s important is that the track has a positive message, but not only with my specific meaning. As you will see from the video, the boy, stands up to the father, and we see a shift in state, from powerless to powerful. So don’t give up, and believe in your self and your own resources to find the power to change your life – whatever the circumstances.”
The track is a stirring indie rock anthem with a hint of Oasis about it, containing the defiant lyric, “This is me, I stand tall above you all, This is me, I won’t fall I’ll show you all.” If you like your music to have a message, check it out.
