"Sooner Or Later" as written by Michelle Branch, Hillary Lindsey and John Shanks....
Lipstick, pretty face and maybe you'll notice
Something different 'bout me, different 'bout me
Yeah you talk talk all you want, you pour your heart out
But you never do see, you never do see me

Hey, can't wait around forever for you

Sooner or later you're gonna come around
And you'll be sorry when you figure out
That I was always everything that you needed
Sooner or later you're gonna wish you had me
Yeah, you're gonna wish you had me

Well she don't do nothing for you
But mess you up, yeah she messes you up
I'm your shoulder I'm the quick drive over
Trying to fix your stuff, well I give up

Ooh, you never see me standing right in front of you

Sooner or later you're gonna come around
And you'll be sorry when you figure out
That I was always everything that you needed
Sooner or later you're gonna wish you had me
Yeah, you're gonna wish you had me

Oh you're gonna wish me back so bad, so bad
Oh but it's a little too late for that

Lipstick, pretty face, and maybe you'll notice
Something different about me, different about me

Sooner or later you're gonna come around
And you'll be sorry when you figure out
That I was always everything that you needed
Sooner or later, oh

Sooner or later you're gonna come around
And you'll be sorry when you figure out
That I was always everything that you needed
Sooner or later you're gonna wish you had me, oh
You're gonna wish you had me, oh
You're gonna wish you had me, oh
You're gonna wish you had me
Oh you're gonna wish you had me

    General Commentthis song to me his about a michelle and the boy who are really good friends like they probaly talk about evrything so the boy probaly talk a lot about his problems in relationship with others girls and michelle hidng her true feeling for him by helping him with his problems. i guess but over the years of there friendship she fell in love with him and he his to blind to see that sso she sing this song hopiing he get a clue and realizing that im the right girl for you im the who understands u but she kinda also saying that she wont wait on him forever and hopefully sooner or later he figure out she was evrything that u needed. she want him to realize this sooner but i dont know lol im not sure im right on this but that my opinion

    General Commentwow. is it just me or does this song sound a bit country??? i <3 this song with the country bit.

    Anyway, I think this song is sorta easy to find the meaning of (this is not a smack for those who havent, BTW). This girl is in love with her guy friend that (in my interpretation) only sees her in jeans or not dressed up, at least.
    That's why she says, "Lipstick, pretty face
    And maybe you'll notice something
    Different about me, different about me" because maybe if she wore lipstick or dressed up once in a while he'll notice something diferent about her, like think that she's cute or something, which is, like, attraction (god, am i the only one who thinks I sound like a total dork??? lol). and maybe he has a girlfriend, and she thinks that his girlfriend isn't good enough for him. she's telling him that "sooner or later" he'll realize taht she was there all along, while that b*tch was totally messing with him.


    soooo yeah. that's more or less my "song meaning" XD. in a nutshell: she wants her guy friend - who has a girlfriend - to see that she's girlfriend material and that he's all hers if he wants her sooner or later.

    or something. lmao i dunno i realy suck at this kind of stuff

    General CommentIn one of the interviews, she said that it was about a guy from high school, and that she's been writing it for a while, and finally got all of the words.

    Lipstick, pretty face
    And maybe you'll notice something
    Different about me, different about me
    Yeah you talk, talk all you want
    You pour your heart out
    But you never do see, you never do see me
    *Maybe if I dress up and act like someone I'm not, you'll notice me.
    You talk about everything- your life, problems, girls, etc. and I'm nothing more than the person you talk to. You never see me.*

    Oh, can't wait around forever for you
    *I can't wait forever for you*

    Sooner or later, you're gonna come around
    And you'll be sorry when you figure out
    That I was always everything that you needed
    Sooner or later, you're gonna wish you had me
    Yeah you're gonna wish you had me
    *Sooner or later you're gonna see how we were perfect, and you'll be sorry you missed out on me and what we could be.
    I was always everything you needed to make you happy, and one day you'll wish you had me.*

    Well she don't do nothing for you
    But mess you up, yeah she messes you up
    I'm your shoulder, I'm your quick drive over
    Trying to fix your stuff, well I give up
    *She isn't right for you at all. I'm the sholder to cry on when things go wrong. I try to solve all of your problems for you, but I'm done, I give up. Just do it yourself.*

    [Bridge]
    [Chorus]

    Lipstick, pretty face
    And maybe you'll notice something
    Different about me, different about me
    *You only notice me when I act like someone I'm not.

    [Chorus]


    Anyways, it's a good song. Very relatable.
