"Later" as written by and Scott Mcmicken Toby Leaman....
I've got a job
I've got to move this paper
I guess it's all the same to you
But I can't sit around and wait
Can't Sit around and wait for you.

It never works
You say you'll call me later
And then you never ever do.
I can't sit around and wait
Can't Sit around and wait for you.
Just another cup of coffee,
I'll sit around and wait for you.

I always knew
Yeah, I always knew
You were a liar.
I'm not a king, I'm not a cop.
I'm not here to punish you.
When I really can't see anymore of what the fuss is all about

It's not my career
To wait and do you favors
I guess it's really nothing do

When I'm running late
You call the undertaker
Because you've got so much shit to do
I can't sit around and wait
Can't sit around and wait for you.
Just one more cigarette,
I'll sit around and wait for you.

I always knew
Yeah, I always knew
You were a liar.
I'm not a king, I'm not a cop.
I'm not here to punish you.
When I really can't see anymore of what the fuss is all about

Just another cup of coffee,
I'll sit around and wait for you.
Just one more cigarette,
I'll sit around and wait for you.
I guess I really will
I'll sit around and wait for you.

    General CommentHe's waiting for the girl to acknowledge him and show interest, but she won't, and he doesn't want to wait for her anymore, yet still finds himself waiting. This song is amazing live.
