"Sooner" as written by Karl Agell, Ryan Culp Barringer, Graham Fry, Jon Mcclain and Phil Swisher....
Start out early in the mornin'
They get up way before the sun
With flowin' lights the city bustles
It truly grins for everyone

Take their little Jim to Xavier
Take him to slowly to the show
And in my eyes they show the loveliness
That brings me back to you so much

Sooner or later they come to see you
Feed you power in the yellow sun
For all your days they keep you movin'
Quick as lightnin' they'll be gone

I know the soul needs wine and kindness
I know the eye needs lots of fun
I know these things will come to see you
To prove it's true I'll tell everyone

Sooner or later I'll come to see you
And feel your power in the yellow sun
To all your days I wish you blindness
From all the evils in the world

Sooner or later I'll come to see you
Feel your power in the yellow sun

    General Commenti can't believe there's only 1 other comment for this song - and it took 'til 2008 to get it! I would agree with Test For Echo's suggestion... in my opinion, MMJ's greatest song!

    General CommentDefinitely about Jim's parents.

    Being from Louisville I thought it was really neat when I saw the part about Xavier. St. Xavier is where Jim went to high school in Louisville.

    What I found very interesting was the second to last stanza starting with, "Sooner or later I'll come to see you." In that stanza I think Jim has become a parent himself, although he has no kids in real life.
