about

This song was written outside of the studio on the morning of the second day of drum tracking. I smushed two separate song ideas together, and recorded the guide track quickly, before doing some drum takes. Very spontaneous and not analyzed in the least. The lyrics somewhat wrote themselves after the initial, "Baby, sooner or later you're gonna be my girl." Oh, pining.....

lyrics

Sooner or Later - Red Falcon / White Lightning

Baby, sooner or later you're gonna be my girl/
Honey, sooner or later I'll get you into my world/

Don't you want love? Don't you want someone to be by your side?

'Cause I don't mind (waiting round and…) Biding Time (On the sidelines)
'Cause my arrows shooting straight/ Yeah some things are worth the wait/

Baby, I saw you back before they looked at you/
But Baby, I sat on my hands not knowing what to do/
Oh Honey, I watched them come around and knock on your door/
So Honey, I wallowed in shame with my heart on the floor/

But I got up! And I fought off those lonely blues/

'Cause I don't mind (waiting round and…) Biding Time (On the sidelines)
'Cause my arrows shooting straight/ Yeah some things are worth the wait/

And don't you worry 'bout the he said, she said (She sa-iad)
And all this talk about your future prospects (She sa-iad)
They'll tell you don't you waste your time on that fool (She sa-iad)
He's got his head up in the clouds what's he got for you?

Well, Baby / Sooner or later I'm gonna show ya

I don't mind (waiting round and…) Biding Time (On the sidelines)
'Cause my arrows shooting straight/ Yeah some things are worth the wait/
'Cause I don't mind (waiting round and…) Biding Time (On the sidelines)
'Cause someday you're gonna see (Quite Exactly)/ Just how it's all meant to be/

Baby, sooner or later you're gonna be my girl/
