Jakoś tam będzie

Cześć:-) Please help!

I know what it means literally, BUT I guess it has a figurative sense, hasn't it? Just because I heard it from Poles, and I don't really understand this expression...

Yes, it does.. It's a famous Polish "jebałpiesizm pospolity" known as a specific form of "pessimistic optimism" [sic]...

"Jakoś to będzie" is more correct, i guess... The word "tam" doesn't fit the phrase...

Choose one:

1) Things will turn out well, I'm sure;
2) Let's hope for the best;
3) It'll turn out all right;
4) Things will work out;
5) It'll be all right

literally: 'one way or the other, it's gonna be somehow'
