"One of These Days" is a song co-written and originally recorded by American country music singer Marcus Hummon on his 1995 album All in Good Time. It was later covered by Tim McGraw, whose version is the fourth single from his 1997 album Everywhere. It peaked at number two in the United States, and number one in Canada.
This song contains the message of self-forgiveness through explaining three separate incidents as examples.
The song's narrator first reflects on his admittingly bullying of a child who was physically different than him and other children of whom attended the same elementary school together.
The narrator secondly reflects on a relationship with a significant other in high school of which he abruptly ends as a result of his senseless self-pleasure, severely inflicting emotional abuse to his significant other in the process.
The narrator finally reveals that the hurt that he had caused to the people he had previously mentioned in the song eventually stemmed into a deep loathing of himself.
