Chasing after danger, making my heart race, woah Maybe if the stars align, maybe if our worlds collide Maybe on the dark side we can be together, be together Maybe in a million miles, on the highway through the skies Someday soon we'll be together He was a dreamer at heart Chasing the stars, chasing the stars Rain spread to the sun I miss you so much, I miss you so much Tell me is this freedom, baby? Chasing after danger, making my heart break, woah Maybe if the stars align, maybe if our worlds collide Maybe on the dark side we can be together, be together Maybe in a million miles, on the highway through the skies Someday soon we'll be together We'll be together, we'll be together We'll be together, we'll be together We'll be together, we'll be together We'll be together, we'll be together Maybe if the stars align, maybe if our worlds collide Maybe on the dark side we can be together, be together Maybe in a million miles, on the highway through the skies Someday soon we'll be together Maybe if the stars align, maybe if our worlds collide Maybe on the dark side we can be together, be together Maybe in a million miles, on the highway through the skies Someday soon we'll be together.

Beavers soon departed for Chess Records , although both Bristol and Fuqua stayed on as songwriters and producers for the label.
Bristol had already recorded the instrumental track and the background vocals when Berry Gordy happened upon the tracks and heard them.
Gordy thought that "Someday" would be a perfect first solo single for Diana Ross, who was making her long-expected exit from the Supremes at the time, and had Bristol sequester Ross into the studio to record the song. Unable at first to get the vocal performance he desired from Diana Ross, Johnny Bristol decided to try something different: he would harmonize with Ross, helping her to get into the mood needed for the record. On the first take, the engineer accidentally recorded both Ross's vocal and Bristol's ad-libs.
Bristol and arranger Wade Marcus liked the results, and Bristol had his vocal recorded alongside Ross' for the final version of the song. Bristol's ad-libs and words of encouragement to Ross can be heard in the background throughout the song. Neither of the Supremes' remaining members, however, sang on the record. Ross's first solo single instead, released in early , became " Reach Out and Touch Somebody's Hand ".
Even though the implicit subject of the song was that of Ross comforting a long-distance lover, "Someday We'll Be Together" allowed for other interpretations, one being that Ross and bandmates Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong would one day nostalgically "be together" again.
Further, in concert, Ross would suggest that "someday, we'll be together" in regard to contemporary troubles like civil rights and the ongoing demonstrations and protests against the Vietnam War. The girl group made their final of several performances throughout the decade with Diana Ross singing lead on the s decennial finale of The Ed Sullivan Show that aired live Sunday, December 21, on CBS.
After the completion of the show, Jean Terrell was presented onstage to the audience as Diana Ross' replacement alongside Wilson and Birdsong. Ross reunited with Wilson and Birdsong in , performing the single for the Motown Yesterday, Today, Forever television special. However this performance was marred by lingering hostility between Ross and Wilson, which Motown insiders report resulted in Ross shoving Wilson out of her way during the on-stage performance.
