I once knew a girlIn the years of my youthWith eyes like the summerAll beauty and truthBut in the morning I fledLeft a note and it read:”Someday you will be loved”I cannot pretend that I felt any regretCause each broken heart will eventually mendAnd as the blood runs red down the needle and threadSomeday you will be loved
In this song, the narrator knows the girl he is with is in love with him, but he doesn’t feel the same, and so he leaves her alone with the thought that someday, someone will feel different about her. Thus, the theme of this song recalls an earlier Death Cab for Cutie song – Tiny Vessels from the album Transatlanticism.

Ben Gibbard has said that this is his least favorite song he’s ever written.
It’s a mean song. I don’t like writing songs from a dishonest place—when I’m trying to put on an air to express a certain emotion that I’m not wrapped in currently. It feels like I’m lying a bit. I just feel that song, musically, we really had to try in the studio to make that an interesting song when it’s not a very interesting song. And, lyrically, I think it’s kind of weak.
