Disclaimer: I do not own anything to do with Alias or the Nickelback lyrics. The song is Someday.

A/N: The story is in Sydney's POV. It is a one-shot for now, depending on the readers.

I get into my car and the radio is blasting. I hear the opening to what seems to be our song.

How the hell did we wind up like this?
Why weren't we able, to see the signs that we missed
And try turn the tables

I wish we had a choice. I wish we could turn the tables. I feel a tear slip down my cheek and I reach up to wipe it away quickly. No tears. No angry words. None of that between us.

I wish you'd unclench your fists, and unpack your suitcase
Lately there's been too much of this
But don't think it's too late

I hope it will never be too late for us. That maybe one day...

Nothing's wrong, just as long as
You know that someday I will

I know that he will... What? At least that he will try.

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)
Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when

The next verse always made me think about us saying goodbye. We would try to keep from fighting but most of the time it didn't work.

"Damnit Sark!" I heard him let out a frustrated groan as a glass smashes against the wall. "Don't call me that!" I cringe. I hadn't meant to. "Well maybe if you weren't being such an assy..." I pause trying to think of something. He stood there expectantly, fueling my fire even more. "Ass. Then we wouldn't be having this problem now would we?" He almost looked amusing. "Did you just call me an assy ass?" I would have laughed if my heart wasn't breaking. "I'm leaving." I turn to go but he runs to me and grabs me roughly, spinning me around to face him. He's so close and all I can do is breathe him.

Well I'd hope that since we're here anyway
That we could end up saying
Things we've always needed to say
So we could end up staying
Now the story's played out like this
Just like a paperback novel
Let's rewrite an ending that fits
Instead of a Hollywood horror

Silently, I beg him to tell me to stay. To tell me that he cares. To tell me something, anything. I don't want him to beg. I know that he won't. But I wish he would at least say something that made me think... I sigh as his lips meet mine. Maybe this was the only way.

Nothing's wrong, just as long as
You know that someday I will

He doesn't make flase promises. Promises we both know he won't keep. We don't know if we'll see each other again. I don't even know that we'll be breathing tomorrow. It was a risk of the job.

Someday, somehow

The guitar solo only fuels my thoughts more. We had made love that night like we always did. By the time he woke up, I would be long gone like I always was.

How the hell did we wind up like this?

Now the story's played out like this

All I can do is hope that maybe the next time will be different. And that we won't meet in the field anytime soon. Becuase if it came between the loyalty in my country and my loyalty to him...

Nothing's wrong, just as long as
You know that someday I will

I always choose him.

Someday, somehow
I'm gonna make it all right but not right now
I know you're wondering when
(You're the only one who knows that)

I take one last look at the house that he bought for us. And I can't help but wonder if we could ever be happy here. Together. No spying. No lies. No killing. None of that. Just Sydney and Sark. But I know that will never happen.

But maybe...

Someday.

A/N: I know it's short but the idea just kind of popped into my head while I was working on my other ALIAS fanfic (ALL THESE LIVES) and I was listening to the song. Review and let me know what you think.
