"Someday (I'm Coming Back)" is a song recorded by British singer Lisa Stansfield for the 1992 American romantic thriller film The Bodyguard, starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. It was released as a single in the United Kingdom on 7 December 1992 and in other European countries in early 1993. "Someday (I'm Coming Back)" was written by Stansfield, Ian Devaney and Andy Morris, and produced by Devaney and Morris.

The song received positive reviews from music critics who called it a "superior piece of pop-disco fluff that Lisa Stansfield infuses with a passionate intensity."[1] An accompanying music video, directed by Marcus Nispel, was also released. The single reached number ten in the United Kingdom. "Someday (I'm Coming Back)" was remixed by Absolute and the "Classic" remixes were created by Frankie Knuckles and David Morales.

In 2003, the song was included on Stansfield's compilation, Biography: The Greatest Hits. In 2014, "Someday (I'm Coming Back)" ad remixes of the song were included on the deluxe 2CD + DVD re-release of So Natural.
